Roswell, GA (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Independent software vendors have been struggling with the many challenges posed by mobile access to their existing solutions and need answers to data security, communications and multi-platform support. These software vendors are faced with a tough choice. They can try to build a mobile solution alone, spending valuable resources and time away from their core software solution. Or they can partner with an experienced mobile business application provider to get to market quickly and do so with a rich set of features geared to mobile. Rover Apps’ priority is to provide a rapid and secured path to mobility for these independent software vendors.
Jonathan Foulkes, CEO of Rover Apps indicated: “We designed our product to provide mobile extensibility and customization that can be leveraged by ISV’s, enterprise IT and System Integrators. Enabling them to focus on what they know best – their applications, and leave the hard parts of mobile interface, communications, centralized management,data security and multiple-platform support to us. Rover Apps is a natural fit for rapidly mobile-enabling existing ISV applications, particularly dynamic and customizable ones like Handshake Software’s.”
Mr. Foulkes also points out that:“ISV’s with on-premise deployments behind company firewalls face another challenge in how to securely allow mobile access. Rover Apps addresses this with our unique RoverLink technology that provides secure communications without requiring network changes.”
For Doug Horton, President and CEO of Handshake Software, Rover Apps was the right choice for a fast and cost-effective means to mobile-enable his customers. “Rover Apps provided us with a flexible and secure platform on which to provide mobile access, saving us man-months of effort and bringing unique features such as RoverLink communications to enable rapid and secure deployments to our customers. By combining Rover Apps with our award-winning Handshake Relationshp Toolkit and Content Designer, our clients are able to immediately deliver any of their enterprise information to iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Android and Blackberry devices. In addition, any of the enterprise application integration configured through Handshake for SharePoint or Office can now also be used for mobile devices. Since this data is sensitive in nature, having the highest level of security for mobile access is very important.”
