About Avvenu

When the company founded Avvenu in 2004, the company knew that people were using an increasing number of technology devices in their daily lives - personal computers, laptops, mobile phones, smartphones and set-top boxes to name a few. The company realized that accessing and sharing all the photos, office documents, music, videos and other files on all these devices would rapidly get unmanageable - inevitably, users wouldn't be in the same place as the stuff users needed, and even if users got it transferred, it might not be in the right format for the device users were using. To solve these problems, the company decided to create a secure service that aims to allow anyone to get at their stuff - no matter which device they happened to be using, and no matter where their stuff was physically stored (even if that device was turned off). The company wanted a service that automatically took care of the differences between these devices, providing whatever file conversions were needed. The company succeeded in creating the company's patented technology platform and in early 2005, launched the company's initial service known as Access 'n Share, rapidly growing a large user base. In meeting Nokia and learning of their Internet services mission, the company rapidly discovered kindred spirits - people who understood the potential of the mobile Internet and the global need for services such as Access 'n Share. Together, we'll be able to deliver on the company's original goals faster, delivering a powerful secure remote access and private sharing experience that seamlessly bridges devices, networks and files, simply making it easier to get to their stuff.
