Cybercom is entering a partnership with Ocean Observations and thus reinforces its prominent position within mobile services usability and graphic design.

Ocean Observations is a design company on the cutting edge when it comes to design and user interfaces, and focuses on interactive products and has a wide experience of the mobile world. Cybercom has on their part extensive experience and expertise in mobile services development.

”Applications and services are becoming increasingly complex, so it’s crucial to have intuitive, user-friendly interfaces that contribute to user experiences. Interest is skyrocketing when it comes to ways in which functions integrate and harmonise with user interfaces,” says Helena Göransson, partnership manager at Cybercom.

Cybercom will be able to offer its customers vast interaction design and graphic design experience. Ocean Observations is an excellent complement to Cybercom’s Graphics Studio, which is part of its mobile services division. Graphics Studio staff members currently work with everything from icons, interaction design, and graphic interfaces to mobile-based content.

“With Ocean Observations, Cybercom provides a more complete offering, takes on larger projects, and enters new markets,” says Martin Fridh, BU manager, Cybercom.

Ocean Observations was launched in 2001. Since then, the company has served customers such as KDDI, Samsung, O2, Hutchison 3, Huawei, Skype, Telia, Orange, and T-Mobile. Its processes are designed to (i) encompass all user-experience factors (no stone is left unturned) and to (ii) include design strategies and implementations that cover interactivity, graphics, sound, and industrial purposes.

“Via the partnership with Cybercom, Ocean can offer its customers the entire value chain from conceptual prototype development to complete mobile services that can be run from Cybercom’s facilities.” says Sofia Svanteson, CEO at Ocean Observation.
