MoFuse Launches Premium Service for Business
Leading Mobile Company Delivers Powerful Platform for Mobile Site Management, Meets Demands For Mobile Web Growth
Providence, RI – April 21, 2009 — MoFuse, a platform for businesses, organizations and bloggers and the largest global network of mobile blogs, today announced the launch of MoFuse Premium™ for Business. MoFuse extends their brand by addressing a serious need for businesses to have an affordable alternative for building and managing a comprehensive mobile site. The company reports that their original platform used primarily by bloggers, will remain intact as MoFuse for Blogs™.
“In conducting research for the re-launch of the SoundersFC.com, one of the number one requested features from our tech-savvy fan base was a dynamic mobile site that included up-to-date news, schedules and roster information,” said Kenton Olson, Manager of Digital Media for the Seattle Sounders FC. “Using the MoFuse Premium platform we were able to build a mobile site that incorporates all of our fan’s needs in a short amount of time.”
Worldwide penetration of mobile devices continues at a break-neck pace, now at over 4 billion. Google predicts that later this year, one half of all Internet connections to them will come from a mobile device . As mobile Internet usage climbs businesses need to have a mobile presence that performs. Local businesses will need to be ready for customers using mobile search to reach their site. Many don’t realize that their current web site won’t present an optimal experience even on an iPhone.
“Businesses have been telling us that building a really nice mobile site was too expensive and complicated because of the various mobile devices out there” said Annette Tonti, MoFuse CEO. “Until now, the only choice has been to go to an expensive custom mobile site builder and pay high fees for hosting and maintenance. Our goal has been to take the time, expense, and technical complexity out of building a mobile site and give businesses an alternative that they can easily manage and afford”.
With well over 5000 handset-browser combinations already in play, businesses find that they can’t possibly manage a mobile site that works on all handheld devices. MoFuse easily solves this for the site owner and ensures the site works on all devices.
MoFuse Premium™ is a subscription service that includes a comprehensive, simple drag-and-drop mobile site layout tool, and a number of mobile site functions including search, Google maps integration, color customization, and even a local weather application. The company offers a 14 day free trial to everyone and three plans depending on site complexity.
