Consorteum Holdings is progressing towards center stage in the emerging mobile market through a collection of valuable developing relationships and licensing agreements. The company, which specializes in the delivery of mobile content, mobile payment solutions and products, works as a technology and services aggregator to meet the diverse needs of its client base by leveraging a wide range of products and services to develop turn-key payment transaction processing solutions.
Through Consorteum’s wholly owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine, Inc., the company is able to deliver thin client applications that are handset agnostic. The Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) provides developers with support for over 1,500 different handsets and tablets without the need for specialized coding. Including important security functions such as geo-fence and geo-location technologies, UMI is a cost effective solution to delivering optimum functionality on nearly any mobile device.
With an experienced management team leading the way, Consorteum is able to provide in-house expertise related to a broad range of vital fields, including mobile compliance gaming, e-commerce and banking, mobile government and mobile health care. The company demonstrated the effectiveness of its platform through the successful development of a standalone “e-TM” banking kiosk for a national bank. Using the platform, Consorteum allowed its client to extend its reach and bridge the gap between the physical and virtual world of banking services.
The importance of effective mobile solutions in reaching clients can’t be overstated. According to the Pew Research Center, an impressive 64 percent of American adults owned a smartphone as of October 2014, and the figure is continuing to grow. Among these users, approximately 52 percent use Google’s Android OS, while 42 percent rely on Apple’s iOS, according to Nielsen. With the majority of companies spending upwards of $25,000 on the development of each mobile app, and maintenance costs increasing this figure over time, it becomes clear that the necessity for a unified development interface is continuing to expand with each passing year.
As the shift towards mobile solutions continues to gain steam, look for Consorteum to persist in expanding its influence in the market. With the number of smartphone manufacturers increasing with each passing year, the importance of a unified development platform, such as the company’s UMI, should continue to grow moving forward.
