“Atos Origin Netherlands joins the WishUmobile steering committee”

Utrecht, 29 November 2005

Atos Origin Netherlands has joined the steering committee of WishUmobile - a Dutch independent knowledge platform in the field of mobile data solutions. WishUmobile's goal is to support and give guidance to users in their searches for a good supplier of mobile data solutions; and to promote clearly the value that mobile data solutions bring to business.

Atos Origin is an international IT services company that offers, among other services, end-to-end mobility solutions, e-mail and other PIM data to ERP and scheduling systems, corporate networks and intranet sites. The prominent IT services provider is now part of the WishUmobile steering committee.

“The main reason to participate in WishUmobile is the opportunity to share market intelligence and join forces with other participants, in order to bring clarity and transparency to mobile data solutions,” says Hans Leijting, Telecoms Sales & Client Manager at Atos Origin Netherlands. “Developments in the field of mobile data solutions are really taking off. Under the influence of Multiplay and the high availability of bandwith for all data-transmission carriers, great opportunities exist to fully exploit the added-value of mobile data solutions. As the talk is all about packet switch-transmission, these solutions can now be implemented much more rapidly than previously. It is vital to move these topics higher up company agendas. An independent knowledge platform like WishUmobile can make a valuable contribution.”

Many firms intend to make their processes ‘mobile'. Very often they have difficulty locating the provider that will best meet their requirements and wishes. “We give them the information they need,” says Roderick Wijsmuller, Managing Director at WishUmobile. “Thus, it is important that all suppliers of products and services in the field of mobile data solutions join WishUmobile. We are of course very pleased that Atos Origin has taken this step.”

WishUmobile provides a complete overview of the mobile data solutions market. At www.wishumobile.nl, visitors have a chance to research information on all suppliers. By using online orientation and selection pathways, a short-list can be produced, based on their specific requirements and wishes.
