Victoria, BC (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Procura is pleased to announce that after the successful launch of Procura Mobile for the BlackBerry® smart phone, they will be delivering Procura Mobile for Android. This is the next phase of their smart phone solution for the Home Care marketplace, transferring the rich feature set already found on the BlackBerry® platform. Simplifying administration processes and enhancing communication, Procura Mobile facilitates improved delivery of care and patient safety while decreasing operating costs by automatically capturing timesheets, expenses and travel.
“We’ve been watching the mobile O/S market carefully, and recent announcements by Google and related device partners have convinced us that Android will continue to be a strong player within the mobile device world,” says Scott Overhill, Procura’s Vice President of Product Management. “The ‘Droid’ platform has always been on the roadmap and we are now positioned to proceed into the product transfer and research phase of development.”
“Though we are still strong supporters of the RIM solution for its very tight security model and exceptional Enterprise Device Management solutions, we believe that Android will become a strong player in some segments of the Home Care user base – particularly for touch screen phones and the smaller-sized tablets that are now available on the market,” says Scott Herrmann, Procura’s Director of Mobility Solutions, “Therefore this next phase will allow us to be ready for customers who decide to use Android as their platform of choice.”
Scheduled for testing in the early New Year, Procura plans to release their mobile application for Android in spring 2012
