IMImobile, a next generation end to end enabler of mobile Value Added Services for Mobile Operators, has been awarded the ‘New Market Entrant of the Year’ award at The UK Trade and Investment India Business Awards 2009 for demonstrating exceptional success as a start-up in the UK market.
The award was presented by Britain’s Minister for Trade Investment and Business, Lord Mervyn Davies.
IMImobile marked its entry into Europe in November 2008 with the acquisition of UK digital content distribution pioneer dx3. The strategic expansion into the UK & Europe was furthered in February 2009 with the takeover of the ‘Music2You’ business division from Nokia Siemens Networks.
IMImobile then acquired Mobytec, the platform powering the award winning Mobyko.com and formed a strategic alliance with Telecom Express, a UK-based provider of interaction services for media owners.
“Entering the UK is part of the company's planned strategic growth and fundamental to the company's success,” said Mr. Vishwanath Alluri, Founder & CEO of IMImobile. “To be recognised in our first year of operating in the UK by a prestigious body such as the UK Trade & Investment will surely motivate us to greater heights. It is a tremendous achievement by the global team”, he added.
