Mobile phone operating system developer Symbian has chosen eleventeenth to provide a payment platform
Mobile phone operating system developer Symbian has chosen Wakefield based digital logistics company, eleventeenth to help them take payments from subscribers to its Partner Network.
Symbian, which has seen over 110 million phones sold using its operating systems, was recently acquired by Nokia. After the acquisition, Nokia stated that it would make Symbian's software available using an open source licensing agreement.
Symbian selected eleventeenth after the company was recommended to them by Barclays. As a preferred development partner of Barclays ePDQ - the bank's system for accepting credit and debit card payments on-line - eleventeenth is often asked to help companies integrate on-line payments into their websites and software. eleventeenth has a track record of being able to handle the more technical or more urgent enquiries. Symbian's project fell into the latter category, and after negotiating terms by email, and a single face-to-face meeting, eleventeenth delivered a solution within 10 working days.
The system enables Symbian to send clients an email inviting them to join the Partner Network, or to renew their existing subscriptions. The client then clicks a link which takes them to a web application based on eleventeenth's Digital Logistics Manager platform, which then enables them to complete the transaction using the credit card of their choice.
Marcus Dyson, CEO of eleventeenth says, "We're proud to be working with Symbian, we have a number of Nokia N95 users in the company, so we're fans of their excellent operating system. Recent development at the company should see the platform moving forward boldly in the next few years, and we're happy to assist."
