“Atos Origin launches its European industrial solution dedicated to innovative mobile applications”

Paris, 8 October 2008

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, is launching its industrial solution Worldline Padda, enabling customers to take advantage of the mobile Internet wave and easily fulfil large-scale projects based on embedded mobile applications. This solution targets players in the telecommunications, media, and mass market distribution industries, as well as banks interested in offering wider, more ergonomic and easy-to-use mobile services.

Designed, developed and operated by Atos Worldline, the solution will be initially launched in France, Belgium and Germany. It has already been chosen by a major French media player.
Worldline Padda is an agile and upgradeable solution which makes it quick and easy to implement large-scale embedded mobile application projects (e-mail addresses, voting, weather reports, etc.). It enables Atos Worldline customers to address their end users extensively and to customise applications with new functions or with a specific design in an ergonomic, simple and comfortable environment. To date, the solution has been approved for over one hundred mobile terminals.

With Worldline Padda, embedded mobile applications can be developed rapidly and efficiently, thus reducing time to market. It also ensures the ongoing maintenance and evolution of such applications.
A forerunner in online services for over 25 years, Atos Worldline thus enables its customers to seize new opportunities on the growing mobile Internet market. This new solution enhances Atos Worldline's expertise and solutions in mobile services (SMS/MMS services, mobile Internet site, mobile payments, development of mobile applications, etc.), and relies on its recognised know-how in the multi-channel management of very large-scale critical flows.
