Worldlink Announces Technology Partnership with Napdaq.com
Worldlink Group Plc, (LSE: WGP) the UK listed Company with gatekeeper patents on providing changing data in real-time for mobile devices, announces that it has taken a stake in a new innovative company Global Tipping Limited (GTL), which is headed up by former Bodog Managing Director of Europe and Asia, Keith McDonnell.
GTL have created a unique sports tipping service, Napdaq.com, which has been enhanced and developed by the software development team at Worldlink. Worldlink has earned development revenue from the relationship, and intends to offer the service to its current and future sports betting partners.
Napdaq will shortly be available for budding tipsters and punters everywhere, and Worldlink have entered in agreements to host the service alongside its new sports betting, casino and poker gaming portals. Napdaq is the world's first peer to peer tipping service. With no fees and no complexities, Napdaq gives a reliable public opinion on any sports event - and some others - and rewards good tips with ratings and hard cash.
Neil Riches MD of Worldlink stated "This is a fundamental part of our strategy to bring new and exciting applications under our wing. This agreement allows us to take a stake in the Napdaq business whilst developing with Napdaq to take the application to new heights. It also opens another gateway for us with Keith's strong sporting connections in Asia and the Far East, where accurate tipping is highly prized."
Keith McDonnell, CEO of Napdaq, added "The potential of working with a company such as Worldlink with their technical resources and web and mobile development expertise really excites us. The idea stemmed from the many 'paid for' tipping products available throughout the globe. We have worked carefully to create a solid monetisation program on the back of this free tipping service. I see a huge opportunity for this service through the channels that Worldlink is developing. We, in turn, will look to take Worldlink's services to a larger audience."
