Blink Mobile, an Australian Platform-as-a-Service provider, has had its myAnswers (now blinkAnswers) service rank 31st in the Anthill SMART 100 Index, a list put together by business and finance website Anthill which names the 100 most innovative products in Australia. Blink Mobile’s service, myAnswers, provides large to medium-sized organisations with a single development and management platform to control their complete mobile environment.
It does this by enabling organisations to rapidly create and deploy customised mobile information services without the need to design, develop and manage mobile-specific web sites or complex applications for each model of mobile phone in use across their customer base or workforce.
Winning the award is another step in continuing to change the way businesses think about mobile services, according to Director of Blink Mobile Daren Besgrove.
“This recognition once again continues our momentum in changing the way the market looks at mobile services. We are thrilled that our Australian research and development is recognised through the SMART 100 in 2010.”
The company has already received significant support across key industry sectors, including local government, tertiary education, schools, publishing, travel/tourism, advertising and business services. Its customers include Brisbane City Council, The University of Newcastle and ABC Driving Schools.
Last month Blink Mobile won three Australian Business Awards for Best E-Business Product, Product Innovation and Best New Product. In March, the company won the 2010 Australian Telecommunications Users Group Award for Innovation.
