e-Zest acquires Maestro Mobile Services to strengthen its mobile offerings
Pune, India, April 22, 2011
e-Zest Solutions Ltd. (http://www.e-zest.net) announced the acquisition of Pune-based Maestro Mobile Services (http://www.mobimaestro.com). This acquisition strengthens e-Zest’s mobile development services portfolio including consulting and testing services for iPhone, RIM Blackberry and Android platforms. A global software services company, e-Zest is focused on product development services on emerging technology platforms and enterprise cloud computing application services.
The latest reports from leading analysts highlight the growing demand of smart-phones and usage of mobile apps. It is estimated that out of 4 billion mobile phones currently in use 1.08 billion are smart phones. In the coming year the share will increase significantly creating a huge demand for mobile applications. e-Zest aspired to leverage the potential of the emerging mobile application market through a quick ramp up of its mobile development team. Maestro Mobile Services, a young mobile application development company based in Pune, had the potential to build synergy through shared vision and values.
Nikunj Natu – Founder and CEO of Maestro Mobile Services averred, “We are highly skilled in mobile application development and because of that we could develop many multi-platform products, enterprise mobile applications and mobile websites for our customers in relatively short period of time. Our ability to apply new technologies (such as HTML5) and cross-platform frameworks (Rhodes and Titanium) to rapidly deliver complex mobile applications has been our main differentiator. While growing we felt the need for external support that could offer us bigger projects and better project management skillset. We found that support in the form of e-Zest and we are very happy to be part of e-Zest.”
e-Zest is confident about tapping the potential of mobile applications with Maestro Mobile Services augmenting e-Zest’s mobile development offerings. Maestro Mobile Services’ broad skillset in mobile development has resulted in a horizontal operations expansion for e-Zest. Nikunj Natu is going to head e-Zest’s mobile application development team.
“Since we were already providing mobile development services as part of our offering, we have had an opportunity to understand the market scope and operational challenges. We found Maestro Mobile Services to be a natural extension to our development portfolio as we know them through our past engagements and they fit well with our aggressive growth plan. Their management and development teams are equally zealous. The integration of Maestro Mobile Services’ operations with e-Zest’s CMMI level 3 processes will help us create a space in this rapidly growing mobile application development services category. I welcome Maestro Mobile Services to our family”, said Devendra Deshmukh, Founder and Director – e-Zest Solutions, while commenting on the acquisition.
