JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise mobility specialist, Antenna Software, today announced that Fortum Corporation, a company that generates, distributes, and sells electricity and heat, has selected AMPchroma, Antenna's award-winning mobile app platform as the basis for its mobile applications.
Fortum will use AMPchroma to build, run, and manage a series of apps, the first of which is a plant asset management and maintenance app. The new app will provide additional mobility on the company's back-end – specifically an IBM Maximo Asset Management system. Fortum selected AMPchroma primarily because of its ability to easily integrate with a wide range of multiple back-end systems through a common integration layer and wide range of supported mobile devices.
Fortum Corporation is a leading Nordic utility company with more than 10,000 employees across its B2B and B2C operations in eight countries. Fortum joins Antenna's roster of customers in the energy and utilities sector – which includes other global utilities companies like Carillion Energy Services, Toronto Hydro, and Hydro One.
"Companies like Fortum are increasingly looking for a comprehensive, yet flexible platform that enables them to embrace the mobile channel with confidence, without having to worry about the myriad challenges of security, integration, and management of mobile apps," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO for Antenna. "In the highly regulated and rugged business of energy and utilities, companies like Fortum demand an iron-clad platform that keeps their data and services secure and, simply put, won't fail or leave them powerless.'"
