Emitel Selects ViryaNet Partner to Implement and Integrate Mobile Workforce Management Solution
Broadcasting Services Provider Wanted Powerful Solution with Proven Track Record
WESTBOROUGH, MA, March 27, 2012 - ViryaNet Limited (OTCQB: VRYAF), a leading provider of software solutions that optimize the planning, execution, and monitoring of service processes for mobile workforces, announced today that Globema, a ViryaNet partner, was selected to implement and integrate ViryaNet's mobile workforce management solution for Emitel, a broadcasting services provider in Poland.
As the leading terrestrial radio and TV broadcast infrastructure operator in Poland, Emitel provides radio, TV and communications services, utilizing a mobile crew of 300 technicians.
ViryaNet's mobile workforce management solution (re-branded as FFA by GE) will help Emitel improve productivity and reduce operational costs.
"We have chosen FFA for our workforce management primarily because we need a solution built on a worldwide leading, standard and powerful product with a proven track record of successful implementations," stated Przemysław Kurczewski, CEO of Emitel, "The implementation of FFA can enable Emitel to achieve expected benefits, such as a growth of productivity and reduction of operational cost in our mobile workforce operations."
Globema, a GE implementation partner, won the contract by performing a proof-of-concept and presenting a return-on-investment model, both based on Emitel's real data and working environment.
Under the agreement, Globema will configure and implement the system, as well as integrate the solution with other systems in Emitel's IT environment. In addition, Globema will train Emitel's staff to use the system, and provide support and maintenance services.
"We are excited to be working with Emitel on the FFA implementation and to become a part of their strategy to enhance the company's operations by application of advanced IT solutions," said Marek Gondzio, President & CEO of Globema, "Emitel is the first FFA customer in Poland. Winning the project at Emitel is a meaningful step for Globema in our strategy to expand our offering of innovative solutions, based on robust products and technologies."
With ViryaNet's solution, Emitel can continue to provide high-quality broadcasting services and advanced technology solutions for its clients, including 10 major TV stations, 60 radio stations, and companies in the telecommunications and public administration sectors.
"Globema is the leading VAR of GE Energy's software, such as FFA, in Central and Eastern Europe," stated Memy Ish-Shalom, CEO of ViryaNet, "Globema has invested the time to become a self-sufficient and sophisticated partner and sees the Emitel win as we do, part of a long-term strategy to expand our global presence."
