Ecrio provides optimized, standards compliant software clients and development resources to mobile phone service providers and device manufacturers for mobile commerce and real time communications.
The Ecrio Mobile Communications Client Suite (MCCS) transforms everyday applications into communication-rich applications. The MCCS framework reduces the complexity and effort required to add rich communication functions to applications ranging from Voice and SMS to video telephony, content sharing, social communications and enterprise solutions. Applications running in common application environments, developed using standard SDK tools on a wide range of device types and platforms can be easily upgraded to communication-rich applications using the framework’s rich set of functions and its simple access methods.
The Ecrio MCCS solves the challenges of enabling and sharing high-value and complex communication capabilities among multiple applications and devices, reducing the incremental effort, cost, and risk of deploying and using new LTE and IMS service capabilities. It accelerates application development resulting in more uses and optimized experiences expanding the individual value and market reach and achieving a higher value for the service capability investment.
