Globo, an international mobile solutions and software as a service (SaaS) provider, has scored a new contract with a Tier-1 European mobile network operator (MNO), for the commercial launch of its GO!Enterprise service.

This is the second contract of its type and will target the commercialisation of both GO!Enterprise Office (secure e-mail, files, messaging and personal information management) and GO!Enterprise Mobilizer (development of mobile apps that connect to enterprise systems).

The launch is set to happen in Janaury and will be provided on a recurring monthly subscription per device.

Chief Executive Officer Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, said: "This new Tier-1 MNO contract win is a result of Globo's continuous investment and successful commercial efforts and we expect that it will act as a catalyst for other new MNO contracts in the near future."

He added: "The recent divestment from our Greek operation shows our strong commitment to international expansion and the current trading picture provides solid evidence that Globo has all the elements for becoming a leader in its markets.

"We couldn't expect a better way to end 2012 than securing a contract with such a significant MNO, and we are confident that 2013 will be a year of strong growth for our enterprise mobility business, driven by BYOD demand and increased awareness about Globo's GO!Enteprise solution."

The group also said that it is confident GO!Enterprise will "evolve into one of the major drivers of our future growth" and revealed that it expects to announce several direct customers and partner deals soon as a result of its launch in the US in October.

The share price rose 4.46% to 20.50p by 09:39.
