Communology Introduces Centralized Communications Application for Hyperconnected Smartphone Users

Communology, a German software and solutions vendor specializing in client software for mobile communications, introduced LiveMedia C³ Cubical, a centralized personal mobile communications application that provides access to the most popular mobile communication channels on the home screen. Integrating user interfaces and contact management sources, the client software unifies Internet services like Instant Messaging and social networks as well as cell-phone functions such as SMS/MMS, Email or Visual Voicemail. LiveMedia C³ Cubical is a pre-packaged, highly adaptable mobile application. Software clients will soon be available for Symbian, Windows Mobile and Android phones. C³ Cubical enables mobile network operators to offer personal mobile communications dedicated to the requirements of hyperconnected users. Members of this rapidly growing group typically use multiple social networks and messaging services on their smartphones to stay constantly connected with friends and family, business contacts and communities, thus creating a huge market potential for providers of mobile data services.


Cell-phone’s address book as the central hub of contact management

“Many users find it increasingly challenging and time-consuming to keep track of all contacts over their numerous, separated applications, services and networks involved in today’s personal communication. That’s why Communology developed a convenient personal mobile communications application leveraging the phone’s address book as the central hub of contact management and mobile interaction directly from the home screen. Any kind of personal communication is just one click away”, said Thomas Kaehler, CEO of Communology.


LiveMedia C³ Cubical features

• Centralized user interface and log-In to various services

• Integrated contact management leveraging user’s phone book on the device

• Direct access to device features like camera (e.g. for upload on services such as Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or Youtube) or GPS (to enable location based services)

• Optional display of buddies’ presence, status, moods and even location

• Simplified access to social media and networks like Facebook and Twitter

• “Click-to-Contact” over any communication channel

LiveMedia C³ Cubical is an addition to Communology’s broad range of proven LiveMedia solutions. Installations at major mobile communications industry players like Sony Ericsson, Nokia, T-Mobile and Vodafone provide a convincing proof of concept for the company’s unique approach to application design. LiveMedia solutions are available for Visual Voicemail, Instant Messaging, Mobile TV, mobile social networking, infotainment, and mobile marketing campaigns. LiveMedia C³ Cubical integrates many components of these proven solutions. Communology’s LiveMedia clients integrate flexibly with third-party server components. As white-label solutions, they enable mobile network operators to roll out new offerings quickly using ready-made products that can be tailored to their specific requirements in terms of functionality, branding, or look and feel. Like all LiveMedia products, C³ Cubical enables optional integration of advertising in various formats, update and client version management and can be distributed as a pre-loaded software or downloaded over the air (OTA).


“Mobile network operators offering services based on Communology’s C³ Cubical client can benefit by increased data service uptake generating higher revenues and ARPU. The distinct increase in convenience will help them attract new target groups and improve customer retention”, Mr Kaehler added. “LiveMedia C³ Cubical provides the ‘central community screen’ and ease of use that hyperconnected users need. It creates a strong differentiating factor and an added value as the foundation of sustainable business models, including advertisement.”
