Fujitsu, Orsus Focus on UK Mobile Markets

4/9/2003 - Fujitsu Consulting, the global consulting arm of the Fujitsu Group, has teamed up with mobile application provider, Orsus Solutions, as part of Fujitsu's new mobile strategy to corner the market for UK wireless business solutions. The partnership will enable Fujitsu to resell the Orsus Mobile Framework, which provides a faster, more reliable way to deliver mobile solutions. Orsus' software will enable Fujitsu to target specific businesses and departments with an end-to-end service, which can help these organizations realize a faster Return On Investment (ROI).

"We were looking for a technology partner that could provide us with a strong but flexible package to help take our mobile strategy to market, as we didn't want to waste time putting together too many pieces of the puzzle ourselves," said Matt Roderick, Senior Consultant, Fujitsu Consulting. "We found that the big software players were quite weak in this area and therefore a high risk. Since Orsus' products are fully integrated at the device and the back office, we found that they fit well into solutions we provide and if targeted at the right firm, the business case is very strong."

Orsus' Mobile Framework contains a full set of tools, covering every aspect of a mobile solution lifecycle from design, development, debugging to deployment. As these tools are integrated, Orsus enables companies like Fujitsu to offer their customers higher ROI, faster time to market, overall lower total cost of ownership and lower communication costs.

"We are delighted to be entering into partnership with such a well-recognized and established brand as Fujitsu," said Andy Rapley, UK Country Manager, Orsus Solutions. "It demonstrates Fujitsu Consulting's confidence in our software to deliver its mobile working solutions. We hope that combining our mobile technology expertise with their consultancy experience will strengthen Fujitsu's mobile working offering in the UK."

Fujitsu will be targeting all the key sectors in the UK with its mobile strategy, including utilities, retail, government, telecommunications and financial services.
