Paris, November 10, 2010 – Maeglin Software, a company specialized in the development and sale of innovative mobile phone services, announced today that Fnac started to resell in its 80 French stores three of Maeglin Software’s Pleex mobile security solutions under the Pack Fnac brand.
Fnac is a leading European retailer of cultural, leisure, and high-tech products with more than 140 megastores in France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Portugal, Taiwan, and Brazil. Fnac, the leading retailer on most of its markets, has developed a unique store format, based on actual and virtual multi-specialist stores, places where you can find not only the products to buy, but also advice, discovery, other afficionados and culture. In 2010, Fnac generated more than 4.4 billion Euros in sales.
Pack Fnac Sécurité Téléphonie Mobile
Maeglin Software developed with Fnac a tailored package including PleexMigrator, PleexBackup and PleexShield in order to meet their customers’ needs. This package is sold in all of the 80 French Fnac stores for 19 Euros for a one year subscription. It is being marketed under the Pack Fnac brand as the Pack Fnac Sécurité Téléphonie Mobile and joins other best-sellers such as the Pack Fnac Protection Intégrale PC. As such, the packaging, the Web site, the mobile Internet site as well as the applications are Fnac-branded. It is sold as a sealed envelope containing a license number. The license is activated when the customer signs-up on the www.packfnacmobile.com Web site. The service is sold either in self-service or assisted by a sales person. Customers pay for the service at the cash register. This implementation shows once again the flexibility Maeglin Software brings in implementing its solutions.
