Complete Business Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:CBSI), a worldwide provider of information technology services and JP Systems, Inc., a leading wireless technology and services enabler, today announced a strategic alliance to market and deploy wireless solutions and applications which will enable businesses to engage in mobile e-commerce.
Initially, the two companies plan to collaborate efforts targeting healthcare and retail/distribution enterprises.
As part of the strategic alliance, the companies will supply labor, infrastructure and technology to develop and deploy tailored wireless solutions. CBSI will contribute its technical manpower, enterprise solution expertise and contacts. JP Systems will provide its intellectual property, InfoBeam(TM) technology, and its hosting services.
InfoBeam's technology bridges the information gap between the corporate repository of data and the mobile worker by adapting information to handheld devices across any wireless network. During this process, the server compresses and optimizes data that is sent securely to wireless devices in a form that is best suited for each particular device. InfoBeam takes into consideration both the device display size and the capabilities of wireless bandwidth depending upon the wireless transport network protocol, and then completes the wireless solution manageability.
"We believe that our combined industry and technology experience will help accelerate the launch of a solution to wirelessly extend enterprises that are increasingly demanding mobile applications," said CBSI Vice President Arvind Malhotra. "We are confident that JP Systems will be a long-term strategic partner for us and will complement our capabilities and solutions."
JP Systems' solutions are device- and network-independent, supporting personal digital assistants (PDAs) like Palm, Handspring Visor, Pocket PC, two-way messaging devices, WAP-enabled phones and all major wireless networks.
"This alliance expands our Mobile ASP (M-ASP) strategy, and further demonstrates the strength of InfoBeam technologies and our hosting services," added Ananth Rao, Executive Vice President of JP Systems. "CBSI is a strong and responsive partner in helping us to deploy InfoBeam technology across a larger number of enterprises."
