BEIJING and HONG KONG, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ChinaSoft International Limited ("ChinaSoft" or "the Company") (SEHK:354), a leading IT solutions and outsourcing service provider in China today announced that it was awarded the 2013 Wireless Fetion contract by China Mobile. This one-year contract amounts to approximately RMB 100 million, and is expected to have positive contribution to the Company's overall profitability in 2013 and beyond.
Launched by China Mobile in 2011, the new Fetion provides SMS, voice, image and document messaging cross the different platforms free of charge to the user. It is a internet social networking platform focusing on communicating, listening and sharing, and it is also a crucial element within China Mobile's mobile internet strategy. As a comprehensive communications service which integrates IVR(Interactive Voice Response), GPRS, SMS and other means of communication, Fetion is now a major domestic mobile Internet platform connecting a large number of users between PCs and mobile phones.
The Wireless Fetion project recently won by ChinaSoft will provide business construction and support for Mobile Fetion and Fetion HD products to China Mobile (Guangdong). The project aims to provide product design, technology implementation plan and formulate a differentiated competitive strategy, according to the China Mobile's telecom operator business features as well as Fetion business's core advantages. The Company will provide excellent solutions based on the mobile terminal features, to continuously strengthen IM basic capabilities and provide mobile IM new product features.
Meanwhile, the design and implementation of this project will give full consideration to its integration with China Mobile's other businesses, and will provide unified standardized interface to quickly achieve integration.

The Company plan to use all resources available to ensure the successful implementation of this large scale project including bringing on other consulting partners such as YunBo Digital.
Through the acquisition of MMIM Technologies Inc. in 2010, ChinaSoft strengthened its mobile internet service capabilities and became a core service provider for the mobile instant messaging, mobile community and app store businesses of China Mobile. With its strong product development capability and valuable experience in the mobile internet field, ChinaSoft won this contract while competing against a number of strong peers for this highly coveted project. Through our active participation in Fetion project, ChinaSoft will further strengthen its strategic partnership with China Mobile. Last year, the Company also won China Mobile Wireless City operation platform project.
