Tartu ettevõtte Mobi Solutionsi loodud mobiiliteenuste isetegemise portaal Igaühe M-äri laienes käesolevast nädalast Soome, Rootsi, Taani ja Norra turule, teatas ettevõte.

Skandinaavias käivitati portaal uue kaubamärgi all.

"Fortumo laseb igaühel teha mobiiliteenuse viie minutiga ja ilma erioskusi vajamata" ütles Mobi partner Rain Rannu. "Nüüd on sama võimalus ka ettevõtetel, kes tegutsevad Soomes, Rootsis, Norras või Taanis".

Eestis töötab Igaühe M-äri alates 2002. aastast. 2007. aasta kevadel käivitati teenus Lätis ja Leedus.

Teenusega on jaanuari lõpu seisuga liitunud ligi 2500 Eesti, Läti ja Leedu teenusepakkujat, kes on loonud üle 6000 SMS-teenuse. Igaühe M-äri kaudu on saadetud üle 500 000 lühisõnumi.

"Tüüpiline Fortumo kasutaja on internetiettevõtja, nii väike kui suur, kellel on oma veebileht või portaal ja kes soovib lehe kaudu SMS-teenuseid pakkuda" ütles Fortumo turundusjuht Martin Koppel. "Kasutajate seas on nii tuntud portaale kui ka väikesi ühe või kahe koolipoisi poolt hallatavaid veebilehti".

Fortumoga liitumine on tasuta. Teenusepakkuja teenib iga tema tehtud teenusele saadetud sõnumi pealt sõltuvalt riigist 40-60% tulu.

Fortumoga saab liituda aadressil

"Teenuse avamine Skandinaavias on hea uudis eestlaste jaoks, kuna nüüd saavad Skandinaavias tegutsevad Eesti firmad SMS-i teel raha võtta ka seal" lisaks Koppel. Eeltöö käib Koppeli sõnul Fortumo teenuste avamiseks ka teistes Euroopa riikides.

Fortumo võimaldab ilma tehniliste oskusteta luua kolme tüüpi SMS-teenust: infosõnum, SMS kampaania ja SMS-chat veebilehele. Lisaks on veebilehe omanikul võimalik programmeerida oma SMS-teenus ja Fortumo abil selle kasutamise pealt tulu teenida.
