Partnering with Spotify to deliver music to New Zealanders' phones

Spark's innovative partnership with online music service Spotify to deliver music to New Zealanders' phones was powered by open source software.

Spark New Zealand teamed up with innovative online music service Spotify to offer their customers on higher end mobile plans free access to Spotify's premium streaming service.

Catalyst, a long term Spark technology partner, used the enterprise Java stack, and agile and test-driven development methodologies to deliver the project on-time and on-budget.

A technically challenging project that required close collaboration between all of the partners, the final result is a seamless experience for users and a pace setter for the industry.

Spotify have found great pleasure in working with Catalyst. The technical integration was run smoothly and without delays or problems - well done team!
