JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 22, 2013

JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise mobility
specialist, Antenna Software, today announced that Fortum Corporation, a
company that generates, distributes, and sells electricity and heat, has
selected AMPchroma, Antenna's award-winning mobile app platform as the basis
for its mobile applications.

Fortum will use AMPchroma to build, run, and manage a series of apps, the
first of which is a plant asset management and maintenance app. The new app
will provide additional mobility on the company's back-end – specifically an
IBM Maximo Asset Management system. Fortum selected AMPchroma primarily
because of its ability to easily integrate with a wide range of multiple
back-end systems through a common integration layer and wide range of
supported mobile devices.

Fortum Corporation is a leading Nordic utility company with more than 10,000
employees across its B2B and B2C operations in eight countries. Fortum joins
Antenna's roster of customers in the energy and utilities sector – which
includes other global utilities companies like Carillion Energy Services,
Toronto Hydro, and Hydro One.

"Companies like Fortum are increasingly looking for a comprehensive, yet
flexible platform that enables them to embrace the mobile channel with
confidence, without having to worry about the myriad challenges of security,
integration, and management of mobile apps," said Jim Hemmer, president and
CEO for Antenna. "In the highly regulated and rugged business of energy and
utilities, companies like Fortum demand an iron-clad platform that keeps their
data and services secure and, simply put, won't fail or leave them
powerless.'"
