NeoMedia, Mobiento & MORE Mobile Relations sign agreements to bring mobile barcode capabilities to their global brand clients Atlanta;
Stockholm; April 22, 2010 – Mobile barcodes will play a greater role in mobile marketing in Scandinavia thanks to new strategic agreements from NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (“NeoMedia”) (OTC BB: NEOM). Mobiento and MORE Mobile Relations, mobile marketing agencies and market leaders, have each signed strategic business agreements with NeoMedia™. The agreements will see the agencies bring NeoMedia’s mobile barcode technology to their respective customers in Scandinavia and around the world.
“We are supportive of these partnership agreements to help further drive the creation of the mobile barcode industry in Scandinavia and world-wide and look to the Scandinavian region to lead global barcode innovation through these partners.” said Robert Westin, Media Business Development Manager, Sony Ericsson. In December 2009, NeoMedia announced its partnership with Sony Ericsson for pre-loading the NeoReader™ client on Sony Ericsson devices.
“Brands are investing in mobile marketing services and we believe that the time has come for a serious approach to mobile barcoding,” said Martin Edwall, Managing Director – MORE Mobile Relations. “We have chosen the partner with the most compelling offering - NeoMedia.”
“As a creative mobile agency, our clients are seeking innovation and creative solutions for their mobile marketing activities. We believe mobile barcodes are a very interesting alternative to other mobile response mechanisms.” said Fredrik Oscarson, Co-founder and Creative Director of Mobiento.
NeoMedia’s mobile barcode capabilities will be a key part of the new partners’ mobile marketing services. Both MORE and Mobiento will incorporate the NeoSphere™ code creation and management services into their offerings. The services make it easy to build freestanding mobile barcode campaigns or include mobile barcodes in integrated campaigns.
“We are empowering the creative teams of these agencies to use mobile barcodes to interact with consumers in new and creative ways,” said Iain McCready, CEO of NeoMedia. “The Scandinavian region represents one of the most advanced mobile markets in Europe, and we are excited to add these two new partners to the ecosystem.”
