Weyland Tech, Inc., a leading global provider of eCommerce, mCommerce and Fintech business enablement solutions, has officially launched its CreateApp mobile commerce platform-as-a-service in Italy as the country reopens following the COVID-19 lockdown.
As Italy works to revitalize its economy, CreateApp allows the more than 172,000 small businesses across the country to easily and affordably establish a new mobile presence. CreateApp was launched in Italy in partnership with Medias-Com’S SA, a Swiss company specializing in media and communications.
Medias-Com’S is joined by Infomaniak, one of Switzerland’s leading web solutions companies. Founded in 1994, Infomaniak has more than 130 employees and annual revenue of 25 million euros. Also partnered with Medias-Com’S is Proteus, a leading IT company that provides Internet access and eCommerce applications to businesses across Italy.
“The recent reopening of Italy’s large tourism industry and other sectors of the economy has helped drive our first SMB deployments of CreateApp in the country,” noted Pascal Jacot, managing director of Medias-Com’S SA. “With the support of our highly capable regional partners, we have attracted a number of new users, and expect nationwide adoption to steadily increase.”
