PREMIERE GLOBAL SERVICES PREMIEREANYWHERE SOLUTION AWARDED CERTIFIED STATUS WITHIN THE VODAFONE APPLICATIONS PORTFOLIO
Premiere Global Services, Inc. (NYSE: PGI), a global outsource provider of business process solutions, has announced that it has been awarded Vodafone Certified application status for its PremiereAnywhere mobile solution. PremiereAnywhere is an easy-to-download and easy-to-use solution that transforms a PDA or smartphone into a portable office by solving one of the biggest challenges mobile professionals face: the ability to print emails and attachments when away from the office. PremiereAnywhere enables users of mobile devices to print emails and more than 130 types of attachments to any fax machine in the world.
In order to achieve Vodafone Certified status, the PremiereAnywhere solution underwent technical evaluation by Vodafone UK. As a result, the application has passed the approval process, meeting the high standards demanded by Vodafone UKs customer base and delivering value to the UK marketplace.
As a Certified application, Premiere Global Services now has access to Vodafone UKs technical expertise and will be recommended to appropriate customers by Vodafone UK account managers. The PremiereAnywhere solution will be identified by the Vodafone Certified Application brand logo. This will allow Premiere Global Services to benefit from Vodafone UKs position as the UKs largest mobile network operator, offering its customers in-depth support and peace of mind when deploying new mobile applications.
John Stone, Managing Director, Premiere Global Services EMEA said: We are delighted to have been awarded the Vodafone certification. It not only gives our PremiereAnywhere solution enormous credibility but also enables us to reach out to an established base of mobile workers who will greatly benefit from the service. The PremiereAnywhere solution is a prime example of how Premiere Globals innovative services can help customers simplify and automate their business processes and maintain productivity by communicating more effectively and efficiently.
John Lillistone, head of data services, Vodafone UK said: For many of our customers, mobile data applications, such as job scheduling or workforce management are a business imperative. Having experienced the business benefits that such applications deliver, these customers are now considering additional solutions to address day-to-day business requirements. Premiere Global Services has proven that it can address these needs and we look forward to working with its team to enable our customers to realise the efficiencies that the PremiereAnywhere Solution delivers.
Premiere Global Services joins a number of other Certified application developers in the Vodafone UK applications portfolio that have developed solutions ranging from telematics and sales solutions to tools that replicate the functionality or content from the desktop environment on to the mobile device.
