Asavie Technologies, an Irish software company headquartered in Dublin, has won a lucrative deal, it claims, worth multi-million euro revenue, with mobile operator Telefónica Group. The agreement will allow Telefónica to offer its business customers a range of mobile connectivity services for secure real-time information exchange.

Asavie will be delivering its mobile connectivity solutions Intranet Negocios and Intranet M2M which Telefónica will initially offer to the small and medium size enterprise (SME) market in Spain. It is intended that the Telefonica solutions based on these Asavie services will provide the security, flexibility and scalability required to manage the flow of business information and, in turn, increase the speed of business processes, improve the quality of data exchange and significantly reduce operational costs.


The first mobile connectivity solution, Intranet Negocios, is a remote connectivity service for Movistar business customers. Intranet Negocios allows remote workers to access their corporate Intranet and other company resources through a secure access point on the Movistar mobile network, as well as providing them with access to web based applications from any standard Internet browser, regardless of the type of device from which they are accessing. The service is based on Asavie's Remote Access service which delivers scalable and secure office mobility.

The second solution, Intranet M2M, enables automated bi-directional wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity between central servers and remote equipment such as transportation fleets or vending machines. The service is based on Asavie's M2M Connect solution which wirelessly connects distributed machinery and optimises critical processes such as machinery maintenance and inventory replenishment. Both services are built on Passbridge, Asavie's unified connectivity platform, which provides a broad range of on-demand mobile connectivity services.

Founded in 2004, Asavie is a client of Enterprise Ireland and is backed with the presence of Paddy Holohan ( Newbay Software ) and Ray Nolan ( Web Reservations International ) two of Ireland's leading technology entrepreneurs.

Commenting on the announcement, Ralph Shaw, CEO, Asavie Technologies (pictured), said: "Companies are increasingly dependent on the availability of accurate information to fuel business processes. However, the cost and complexity of providing timely information where it is needed have increased with the explosive growth in new devices, applications, technologies and communications media, as well as increasing geographical diversification and employee mobility, and companies are looking to their communications service providers to move information efficiently through their organisations.

Our on-demand solutions accelerate the secure exchange of information between people, applications and devices - accurately and cost-effectively'.

Luis Pavón, Head of Products & Services, Mobile Business, Telefónica, said: "Our business customers rely on Telefónica to provide mobile communications services that enable efficient business, and these new services will form part of our industry-leading portfolio of mobile connectivity solutions. With Asavie's advanced technologies and applications, we can bring services to market quickly, reduce operational costs, and minimise capital outlay. Most importantly, they ensure the best possible experience for our customers."

Welcoming the announcement, Greg Treston, Head of High Potential Start Ups and Scaling at Enterprise Ireland said: "A key element of Enterprise Ireland's strategy is to grow a strong base of innovative indigenous companies with the products, services and business development strategies that enable them to carve out their own place in global markets, driving jobs and export sales growth at home. We are delighted to support Asavie as they continue on their international growth strategy."
