Service2Media, worldwide provider of advanced app solutions for smartphones and tablets, closes an AppCenter partnership with international information technology services company Atos. As a result of this agreement, Atos will independently build and manage mobile apps for its clients on Service2Media's App Lifecycle Platform. Atos provides this service to clients in a variety of markets and industries, both for its B2C and B2B relations.

Service2Media's App Lifecycle Platform enables Atos to build apps for its clients in a very effective way. This platform supports the full life cycle of an app: from design up to and including technological and functional updates. Moreover it supports all mobile platforms, which makes new apps available for all mobile devices immediately. Atos enables clients to market mobile applications much quicker and thus to stimulate a positive user experience. Clients of Atos can choose from two business models: either based on project and maintenance costs or on the number of transactions.

“We are very happy that Atos decided to enter into a partnership with us and become a part of our Global Alliance Network”, says Geert Kolthof, CEO, Service2Media. “Atos especially has a lot of specific knowledge in terms of backend integration.
