Complementary Mobile Device Management Offering Solidifies Industry Leadership
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 3 -- FutureDial Incorporated, the leader of mobile device management solutions to wireless carriers around the world, announced today that the company and one of its major shareholders - Sun Corporation in Japan - have completed the acquisition of all of the assets of Cellebrite Mobile Synchronization, Ltd, an Israel-based provider of mobile content transfer solutions previously held by private investors. Financial details of the Cellebrite buyout deal were not disclosed.
According to George Huang, FutureDial Chairman and CEO, the acquisition is a concrete step toward executing the company vision of providing a host of industry-leading mobile content management solutions. "We see FutureDial and Cellebrite solutions as complementary offerings that, when integrated, provide more comprehensive value to wireless carriers and retail stores than either of us alone. We are excited to join forces with the Cellebrite team to create better solutions to meet the market needs."
Mr. Shu Gan, VP of Marketing and Product Management at FutureDial, said that "We have identified Cellebrite as a valuable complement to our product line in the rapidly growing wireless industry. Working together we expect to achieve greater market success that brings even higher return to our development efforts."
"We are impressed by the accomplishment of Cellebrite in the past few years in penetrating the wireless carriers with its Point-Of-Sales products," added Mr. Randy Osborne, FutureDial's V.P. of Worldwide Sales. "The partnership will provide both companies with new resources and synergy that further accelerate market adoption and product expansion."
Established in 1999, Cellebrite offered contact synchronization and content transfer tools for mobile phones, for use by wireless carrier sales support staff in retail stores. Its UME-24 and UME-36-Pro series are widely adopted by many carrier stores due to their simplicity and ease of operation.
For FutureDial, the Cellebrite acquisition is the latest in a series of strategic moves this year, at a time that the company is enjoying increasing success among major global wireless carriers and wireless retailers with the new release of its web based client-server Retail Management Solution(TM) (RMS 3.0). FutureDial RMS enables store staff to provide mobile phone content transfer and backup services, while providing centralized management, reporting, and billing capabilities for carriers to manage the operations and generate additional service revenues. An initiative is already underway to leverage the synergies between FutureDial and Cellebrite technologies to create a joint offer that provides added value to the customers of both companies.
