ADAFFIX, a new intelligent caller ID recognition application for mobile phones, announces the start of its services on the Swedish market today. ADAFFIX offers an entirely new service when using a smartphone: when a number is busy or the called company does not answer the phone, alternative merchants in the same business - such as restaurants or shops - are suggested and made visible on the display of the caller. By using this free software, smartphone users can also see the name of unknown callers on the display of their mobile phone within seconds. ADAFFIX accesses the necessary data to deliver such information through a real-time search in cooperation with its partner Lokaldelen (lokaldelen.se) in Sweden.
ADAFFIX with private calls…
The ADAFFIX application that is available for all relevant Smartphone and operating systems offers two prominent functions: with the caller ID recognition function, a number that is not in the user’s contacts list is matched with Lokaldelen and the result is displayed in real time. When the user misses a call, the name and time of the call stays visible on the display – with just one button push users can call back that number easily. Name and number can be added to the contacts list conveniently. For highest user comfort, ADAFFIX automatically runs in the backend of the mobile phone and displays content to the user when appropriate.
… with commercial calls
The second utilization follows the reverse logic: The caller unsuccessfully calls a pharmacy for instance, a pizza delivery service or a craftsman and receives additional data of the recipient such as other mobile or fixed line phone numbers. Furthermore, three alternative companies are displayed which are located within direct geographical vicinity of the dialed phone number. “If you dial a number of a plumber in Stockholm and can’t reach the company because they do not answer the phone, ADAFFIX will show additional contact info as well as three other plumbers nearby within seconds”, adds Robert Lindell, Online Marketing Manager for Lokalelen. Another call is initiated simply by pushing a button, contact details of companies can also be added to the contacts list on the mobile phone.
“We have a clear focus on mobile services. ADAFFIX is a natural extension of our mobile strategy and a logical addition to our products. In contrast to many others we offer caller recognition for free and we expect that a lot of smartphone users will benefit from this new functionality, both in calls to private persons and businesses. ” says Robert Lindell.
“After our successful market launches in Denmark, Germany and Austria we are very pleased to launch in Sweden together with Lokaldelen. As smartphones are very popular in Sweden we believe that ADAFFIX can help a lot of users to get an even better experience on their smartphones” says Mathias Schroeder, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of adaffix.
The free service was developed for smartphones and runs on Blackberry, HTC, LG, Nokia, Motorola, Palm, Samsung and SonyEricsson phones that support one of the following mobile operating systems: Android, RIM BlackBerry, Symbian S60 or Windows Mobile. Due to a limitation in multitasking the iPhone does not support ADAFFIX.
ADAFFIX works with every mobile network in Sweden.
