Haiku is poised to take part in the inaugural Mobile Apps & Content World section of GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK having just announced a reinforcement of its collaboration with a major European telecoms player.

The company, which provides convergent solutions for carriers and tier-one internet players, has helped carrier Bouygues Telecom launch an applications store. The store offers a wide selection of applications for users accessing it through the web or through mobile internet services.

Haiku developed the store using its dynamic convergent platform IOMagic in order to meet Bouygues Telecom’s expectations and ambitions.

The new market place provides access to an interactive and dynamic portfolio which includes thousands of applications and games supplied by over 100 content partners, compatibility management on over 2,400 handsets and a user-friendly and intuitive interface. Laurent Demene, President of Haiku, says that launching the application store — which it did in collaboration with NEC France — marked a “new and important milestone” for the company.

“Being part of this project reinforces our position as a convergence specialist for tier-one players of the industry. The application store is a strategic project for our client, who entrusted us, after two years of fruitful collaboration,” he comments.

The store also offers a wide range of interaction modes, and customers can rate, recommend and include them on their social network accounts. Haiku performed the full product design, storyboarding and development for the project.
