Nocom to be responsible for SkandiaBanken€s WAP venture

Nocom to be responsible for SkandiaBanken's WAP venture Nocom AB (publ) is to supply WAP solutions for SkandiaBanken. SkandiaBanken used new technology at an early stage to improve service and availability and has thus taken a lead with new thinking in the financial sector. The Swedish periodical "Privata Affärer" elected SkandiaBanken as Bank of the Year in both 1998 and 1999. Nocom is responsible for the automatic configuration of the customers' telephones and for operating the WAP services using WAP Direct, Nocom's fast and secure technology for mobile services. Thanks to this co-operation between Nocom and SkandiaBanken, the customers will be able to implement a number of banking services directly from their WAP telephones. For example, money transfers between own accounts, checking account balances, and trading stocks and unit trusts. - Nocom was chosen as the supplier primarily because they could offer a proven WAP solution that is completely independent of which operator is used. The service can thus be made available to all our customers. The solution also allows for automatic configuration via SMS, which gives a fast and uncomplicated connection, says Pär Lundkvist at SkandiaBanken. - The interest already shown by our customers is far beyond our expectations. During the first week 600 customers joined the new service. The number of customers connected to the service is expected to increase rapidly, as the availability of WAP telephones increases in the market place. - Nocom focused on mobile Internet solutions at an early stage and has made considerable investments. The fact that we have been entrusted to be responsible for SkandiaBanken's WAP venture is proof of our competence and experience in this field, says Stefan Skarin, Executive Vice President of Nocom. - Our recently launched mobile platform, Mobile Ctrl, gives us even more possibilities to supply the market with competitive mobile solutions. Nocom has earlier developed and deployed successful WAP projects for Scandic Hotels and SEB Enskilda Banken, and others.
