Antenna Software Expands Enterprise Portfolio with Mobile Internet
Published on Feb 10, 2011

Antenna Software, Inc. has acquired mobile internet software company Volantis Systems Ltd.

The combination of Antenna’s proven mobile apps technology with the ability now to harness the power of the mobile internet, uniquely positions the company as a complete, end-to-end mobile solutions provider for enterprises and carriers. This strategic acquisition makes Antenna the market leader for mobility solutions that address the needs of all users across all internet-connected mobile devices – from smartphones and tablets through to browser-enabled feature phones.

“According to a recent IDC forecast, in 2011 half of all web users are going to be mobile web users, and by 2014 we estimate they will have downloaded 76.9 billion apps,” said Nick McQuire, IDC’s Research Director for EMEA Enterprise Mobility. “It’s clear that no company can afford to have just a mobile website strategy or just a mobile apps strategy. As such, the combined experience and capabilities of Antenna and Volantis make them well positioned to take advantage of the way in which the mobile internet is developing on a global scale.”

Operating under the Antenna brand, the combined company will continue to provide full support of Volantis’ products to its current customers, prospects and partners through its existing teams in the Volantis offices in Guildford, Seattle, Krakow, Pune and Hong Kong –strengthening Antenna’s global presence, particularly across Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The addition of Volantis’ complementary technology allows Antenna to immediately offer its customers a significantly broader range of mobile web solutions, including the underlying architecture for mobile commerce and enterprise app stores. This adds to Antenna’s already robust on-demand (SaaS) Antenna Mobility Platform™ offering, which powers the company’s suite of mobile business and consumer applications.

“This is truly a watershed moment for Antenna that takes us closer to our vision of being the mobile platform for the Global 1000,” said Jim Hemmer, President and CEO of Antenna. “With Volantis as part of the Antenna family, our customers can go to a single provider for all their mobility needs. Our mobile solutions not only manage the complex requirements of the workforce but also the mobile demands of millions of consumers who want to interact with a brand on the go across myriad devices. In a highly fragmented channel, Antenna creates order out of chaos and delivers a consistent and compelling mobile experience to all.”

“Volantis has spent the past decade developing a best-of-breed solution for the mobile internet,” said Mark Watson, former CEO and Co-Founder of Volantis. “Our goal has always been to make the mobile web as accessible as possible to enterprises and consumers, with the most robust technology to support the solution. Joining with Antenna will allow us to continue to invest in the development of our technology while co-innovating as part of the Antenna team to help drive success for the combined company going forward.”***
