MOBILIZE 08, SAN FRANCISCO, CA – September 18, 2008 – Squace, creator of the free application that makes surfing, searching and sharing Internet content possible on ordinary mobile phones without typing, today announced it won a contract from Vinnova, the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, www.vinnova.se, to connect Stockholm day care administrators, teachers and families using the mobile Web.
Eighteen day care centers in Stockholm serving approximately 300 children and their families will be brought online in September. During Phase I of the measured rollout, 60 teachers will use Squace’s free mobile Web application to keep parents up to date. Parents will use Squace to get contact information for the families in their child’s class, scheduling, and school news.
“Managing your child’s ever-changing school schedule can be an exercise in controlled chaos,” said Aage Reerslev, Squace founder and CEO. “Even though parents may be at a computer during much of their work day the time that they need the school-related information most is when they’re on the run – when they’re in the car or on the train. With Squace they now have fast and easy access to their child’s class and school sites from their phones, any time, anywhere.”
