United Planet promotes efficiency through mobility
London, 21 March 2012 – United Planet (www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of enterprise portal software in Europe, has confirmed its commitment to the wireless enterprise today with the affirmation that enterprise portals and web-based applications are the best way to promote efficiency through mobility.
Axel Wessendorf, managing director of United Planet, explains: “Mobile technology is moving beyond the sphere of the consumer, giving increased power to business by enabling employees to access enterprise data from anywhere, on any device and in real-time. Mobility has indeed become the topic on everyone‘s lips – it’s an unstoppable revolution that could be adopted across the entire enterprise.”
According to VDC Research, 110 million smartphones were deployed by enterprises in 2010 and by 2013 an estimated of a billion smartphones will be deployed in the global workforce. Aberdeen Group research data from 2011 showed that 75 percent of companies have Bring Your Own Device policies. Furthermore, as of today, 81 percent of mobile users access the Internet from their mobile phones and 68 percent use apps.
The mobile workforce already uses smartphones to increase productivity and to stay connected while on the road. Mobile devices are therefore ideally placed to contribute to efficient workflows in enterprise as they provide access to business data anytime, anywhere. Real-time interaction with customers, increased flexibility and availability of information are just a few of the business benefits offered by mobile solutions.
Wessendorf adds: “In short, mobile is the new desktop. Business-critical decisions are increasingly being made in the field and today’s employees carry their workstation in their pocket. With the never ending flood of mobile apps and constant introduction of new device types and operating systems, it will be crucial to find the right mobile solution for each and every enterprise.”
United Planet believes that its portal software, Intrexx, can provide the answer to this challenge: Intrexx enables companies to create web-based applications and mobile web-apps for any mobile device available on the market – with no programming knowledge required. It enables companies to make data from existing systems mobile very quickly and easily. This means that mobile solutions can be implemented cost effectively, and without large development teams.
“Given that mobile technology has already proven itself to be the best way to reach customers, it makes sense to use mobile business apps to accelerate business processes and to enhance employee productivity,” Wessendorf concludes.
