Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
ITR Mobility today unveiled iFactr Enterprise Platform 3.0, the latest generation of its mobile application development platform. The need for enterprise mobility mixed with the trend of bring-your-own-device has increased the complexity and cost of building versions of the same application for each of the different mobile operating systems.
“This release marks the most significant update to iFactr since we originally launched the platform,” said Nathan Clevenger, CTO, ITR Mobility. “The overwhelming feedback from our customers is that iFactr continues to be a game-changing technology that powers their most mission-critical mobile solutions.”
iFactr™ is optimized for line-of-business applications on all hardware platforms in the rapidly evolving mobile landscape with support for not only consumer devices, but also industrial rugged handhelds. Not only does iFactr support legacy mobile devices and platforms, but iFactr uniquely also provides a migration path to rapidly modernize legacy mobile applications for enterprises that have significant investments in traditional enterprise mobile solutions like sales force automation, field service automation, inventory management, GIS and other line-of-business needs.
