CTIA Wireless 2007
ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Entriq, a company that enables content providers to leverage the power of new media distribution, and ProGames Network, a leading online gaming channel, today jointly announced a fully integrated broadband-to-mobile commerce solution that provides gamers far more flexibility and ease of use than they currently enjoy.
ProGames Network is leveraging Entriq's broadband commerce and mobile services platform to allow gamers to browse, select and pay for ProGames Network games while online at www.progamesnetwork.com, and then have the games delivered to mobile devices such as cell phones or hand-held digital assistants. Entriq assures the correct version of the game is delivered for the gamer's mobile device while protecting the ProGames content against unauthorized redistribution.
"Gamers love the thrills they experience in our games online, so in extending our games to the world of mobile devices we wanted to achieve total ease of delivery and seamlessness for the gamers while maintaining the quality, integrity and security of our products," said Martin Gray, president and CEO of ProGames Network.
"We're very pleased that Entriq has worked hard with us to develop a solution that makes it so much easier for customers to obtain and enjoy our games, wherever they may be," said Gray.
Jan Hofmeyr, Entriq's executive vice president for Sales, Marketing and Business Development, said the integrated solution developed for ProGames Network indicates the growing importance of a cross-platform view of tapping into new media distribution.
"Our solution for ProGames Network shows that Entriq can empower content providers to extend the relationships they have with users in a broadband environment to mobile devices. That's a huge step forward because, in essence, we're allowing the providers to take more control of their own destiny instead of being beholden to wireless carriers as middlemen in transactions with gamers," said Hofmeyr.
Highlights of the Entriq-ProGames Network solution include:
* Complete integration between the Entriq Mobile Content Management System and the ProGames Content Management System.
* Authentication of users' mobile numbers using Entriq's challenge mechanism.
* Seamless integration between the ProGames Network solution and Entriq's Secure Purchase flow.
