Tokyo, Feb 23, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Ltd and Infoteria Corp. today announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate in launching a business that brings together Infoteria's "Handbook" internal corporate information distribution service for smart devices and Fujitsu's system integration (SI) services. Fujitsu and Infoteria will integrate their respective strengths as they seek to expand their smart device-related services business.
In recent years, the rapid spread of smartphones, tablets, and other smart devices has led to the expectation that the use of these tools in the enterprise environment will result in new working styles and other workplace improvements. In particular, there is a high need to employ smart devices in applications such as enabling a salesperson to introduce products to customers, viewing materials in a paperless meeting, and distributing documents and files within a company. There is also a rising need to incorporate them into a company's business systems.
By collaborating to combine their respective strengths, Fujitsu and Infoteria seek to expand their smart device-related services business. Specifically, by combining Infoteria's Handbook with Fujitsu's systems integration expertise, which spans an array of industries and work processes, the companies seek to build a highly secure information distribution platform and provide enterprise customers with services ranging from content to device administration.
Advantages of the New Collaboration
1. Enables Handbook to be integrated with business systems and services
In addition to Handbook's existing ability to distribute documents and files as well as to share internal corporate information, the new collaboration with Fujitsu will enable the companies to meet a wide range of customer needs, including integration with customers' business systems and secure connectivity over a private network.
2. Delivery of vertically integrated services
Through the use of Handbook, both companies will be able to propose new smart device-enabled working styles for customers in a variety of industries and business categories. In addition, Fujitsu will deliver a comprehensive range of offerings - from services and solutions to service platforms, networking and smart devices - in addition to helping customers also integrate content distribution services with their business systems.
