Motricity Announces Cms To Deliver Relevancy, Real-time To Smartphones

Motricity (Nasdaq:MOTR), a leading provider of mobile Internet services today announced the launch of mCore MobileCast, a next generation content management solution that delivers real-time, consumer relevant content to a wide range of smartphones. This comprehensive offering is designed to give smartphone subscribers real-time, zero touch access to all the relevant content, applications, goods and services they care about most, directly to their "phonetop." For carriers and enterprises, MobileCast will drive brand awareness, promotions and commerce all through a user's personalized mobile experience.

"Smartphone users now have access to more content, applications, goods and services, than ever before but it's often difficult for them to find what's most important to them. We believe the challenge of discovery is one of the primary reasons mobile commerce has yet to become mainstream," said Ryan Wuerch, CEO and founder of Motricity. "MobileCast removes this complexity by leveraging consumer preferences and insights to bring consumers the content that's most relevant to them, right to their "phonetop," on a real-time basis."

MobileCast is the latest service module delivered as part of mCore, Motricity's hosted, Mobile-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform. It offers carriers and enterprises the ability to deliver a wide range of content types (HTML5, audio, video, text) to the most popular smartphone devices (Android, RIM, Windows 7 and Apple). It includes easy-to-use publishing tools that reduce the time to design and develop marketing campaigns, giving marketers greater control. MobileCast also makes it easier for marketers and advertisers to track their campaigns through a complete suite of reporting and insight generation tools, enabling results reporting and real-time adjustment and optimization of campaigns.

"mCore MobileCast is a solution that is designed to create increased value for consumers by improving the relevancy of the content they seek on their smartphone," said Tole Hart, senior analyst at Yankee Group. "It is also an opportunity for carriers to become more involved in the smartphone ecosystem and use their customer knowledge to increase the satisfaction of their mobile data subscribers."
