Vancouver-based Atimi Software, the developers behind the official Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames mobile apps, will be adding three additional NHL teams to its growing roster of official mobile apps for NHL teams. The Chicago Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators, and Montreal Canadiens have all turned to Atimi to develop mobile apps across iPhone, BlackBerry and Android platforms for the upcoming season.
“With this hockey season wrapped up, teams in the NHL are looking for new ways to engage fans on the mobile platform in the upcoming season,” said Trevor Westerlund, Professional Sports Sales Manager at Atimi. “We are thrilled to be working with more NHL teams, and are looking forward to launching apps that will have fans excited for the season ahead.”
