CellCast Mobile Widget Now Running on Google Android, Nokia Symbian and Ultra-Portable PCs

Our top priority continues to be giving customers more ways to package and deliver mobile-ready content and communications to the broadest array of smartphones and mobile devices they rely on to help run their businesses

OnPoint Digital, Inc., a leading online learning and mobile solutions provider, announced the release of several new and updated CellCast Mobile Widget applications facilitating anytime/anywhere learning to mobile enterprise workers. The new Widgets allow mobile learners with devices based on Google's Android™ environment, and smartphones based on Nokia's Symbian, to receive and launch tracked assignments and tests on their mobile devices. OnPoint has also added on-device training support for Microsoft Windows™ and Android-based netbook-style ultra portable computers currently gaining popularity in consumer and enterprise markets alike. Together with the previously released CellCast widgets for content delivery/tracking to BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds™, Apple iPhones & iPod touch media players, and Windows Mobile® devices, OnPoint's CellCast Solution™ continues to grow to meet diverse market demands.

"Our top priority continues to be giving customers more ways to package and deliver mobile-ready content and communications to the broadest array of smartphones and mobile devices they rely on to help run their businesses," stated Robert Gadd, OnPoint President and Cofounder. "As manufacturers and carriers increase the functionality and speed of their mobile devices, organizations are becoming more heavily dependent on their devices to accelerate business communications, push enterprise knowledge and collect information from their increasingly mobile workforces. OnPoint's CellCast Solution provides forward-thinking companies a platform to provide that information to their users, regardless of what device they have."

Katherine Guest, Vice President of Sales and Cofounder, noted, "We are seeing a fast growing requirement to extend learning beyond the desktop -- making critical and just-in-time information available at the time of need, on the device of choice. Even organizations who have standardized on a particular mobile phone platform for their employees are finding that their participating customers and partners utilize a wide variety of devices. As we continue to add support for new platforms, our customers can deliver their learning content, marketing, and field sales updates to an ever wider mobile audience."

OnPoint's CellCast Solution continues to receive accolades, most recently winning the Mobile Learning Shootout at the Training Conference in Atlanta earlier this year. OnPoint demonstrated how easy it is for managers and developers alike to prepare, package, deliver and track a wide variety of content--including voice, SMS messages, HTML/PDF files, audio/video clips and animated slideshows--to a user's cellphone or smartphone. In fact, the three most popular types of mobile content--message-based, audio-based podcasts and animated/narrated slide presentations -- can all be prepared, uploaded and deployed by virtually any manager with only a few minutes of training/orientation. New content is first loaded into OnPoint's Web 2.0-based content management interface, then automatically transcoded into device-specific, smartphone-ready deliverables. Next, mobile content is assigned to users or defined groups with simple drag & drop screen interactions. OnPoint's CellCast Solution also includes powerful tools to analyze content access and test or survey results using flexible drill-down reporting, interactive dashboards and collaborative features.
