Company Retrospective

Corona® is based on award-winning technology developed by an earlier iteration of Norwood Systems during the early 2000s.

The earlier Norwood Systems successfully developed and deployed the world’s first ‘dual-mode’ enterprise mobility platform using Bluetooth/GSM cellular handsets. The company won the first ever tender issued by a large telco for dual-mode converged enterprise voice services infrastructure.

Norwood Systems was ranked by Time Magazine as one of Europe’s hottest tech firms in 2001 and 2002. In 2003 its technology won the prestigious European IST Prize, awarded annually by Europe’s Academies of Science to the top 20 ground-breaking IT innovations in the European Economic Area.

It became clear by 2010 that smartphones, powered by Apple and Android software, were becoming open enough to support the service architecture originally envisaged by the founding Norwood Systems’ team in mid-1999.

Consequently, we decided to take the million lines of code developed by the first Norwood Systems out of mothballs and restart the company, using the Norwood Systems name once again to reflect the strong mobility heritage of the company’s technology base and team.

Norwood Systems was re-founded in 2011 to develop and deliver a range of the best possible global mobility products, benefits and OTT solutions for organisations of all sizes.

The Future

Not content to rest on their laurels, the team at Norwood have been working hard to on our most successful product yet – World Voicemail.

World Voicemail makes your voicemail experience as easy as it should be and makes the old ‘dial-up’ approach to check your voicemails completely obsolete. With World Voicemail, you can read or listen, and visually navigate through your voicemails. The App is already a huge hit with consumers with a lot more success yet to come.

World Voicemail for Telecommunication Providers enables them to deliver differentiated end-user experiences, increase call completions and improve customer satisfaction. Providers can further drive subscriber engagement using Norwood’s proprietary Engagement API that leverages World Voicemail as a tool to re-engage with their customers. Having partnered with New Zealand’s leading telecommunication provider, Spark, within months of launch, the solution has established itself as our flagship product.
