Success Story: Appello

Makewave partner Appello has successfully launched the world’s first true OSGi on-line navigation solution, dubbed 'Wisepilot', for in-vehicle systems, mobile phones and PDAs. As they were looking for dependability and flexibility when choosing OSGi platform, Knopflerfish was the natural choice. The strength with an on-line navigation solution is the dynamic content, i.e. you will always have access to the latest maps and traffic information.

Wisepilot includes valuable content such as:

  • Real-time traffic information
  • Speed camera database
  • Yellow and white pages
  • Restaurant- and hotels guides

Wisepilot also features integration of customer unique content such as:

  • Dealer and support stores
  • Environmental fuel (E85, Ethanol)
  • Toll Systems (avoid tolls, cost to enter toll, etc..)

Continuous adding of extra content and new functions is the key to user adoption, drive ARPU and sustain high retention rate. The possibility for easy support by using Knopflerfish and Ubicore for remote upgrades will keep the cost for maintenance down and increase customer satisfaction. Just ask Appello!
