Filipino software maker inks deal with Microsoft

A Philippine software developer has bagged a deal to develop an instant messaging and short messaging system (SMS) service for Microsoft, executives told INQUIRER.net.

Wilfredo dela Cruz, president of D3 Systems, said a visit by a Microsoft executive from Redmond, Washington has blossomed into a sweet deal for the company that has been attracting partners from the region.

"We've developed a system for Microsoft," said Dela Cruz in an interview here. D3 Systems Inc. was among the local companies that joined the CommunicAsia 2007, the biggest telecommunications event in Asia Pacific.

Early this month, Microsoft said it was looking at forging deals with local software companies that are using open-source technologies to develop applications for the Windows platform.

Roger Delgado, vice president for technical operations of D3 Systems, said the company has come up with a open-source based system that would allow Microsoft Outlook users to interact with mobile phone users using instant messaging or SMS, and vice versa.

Dela Cruz, for his part, said the deal between D3 Systems and Microsoft involves no direct investment from both companies.

The executive said revenues will be generated through Microsoft's use of the local company's "system gateway."

Bill Hilf, general manager for platform strategy at Microsoft, met with D3 Systems this June to strike deals with a number of independent software vendors. This was, as Hilf described, an effort to strengthen ties with the "open source community."

D3 Systems has developed a mobile instant messaging solution called YehBa*, which also works on other existing mobile instant messaging platforms currently available in the market.

Dela Cruz said that D3 Systems is testing the system at the National Computer Center's computer laboratory.

D3 Systems has been actively looking for partners outside the Philippines to resell its mobile phone client.

YehBa* has been downloaded in countries like India, US, Bangladesh and Brunei a month after the software was made available on the Internet, according to Delgado.

YehBa* was launched in December 2005.
