London, UK (PRWEB) January 30, 2009
BigHand today announced that it has been awarded Vodafone Certified application status for its BigHand Mobile application. BigHand Mobile allows professionals to utilize their BlackBerry® smartphone to record, edit and send verbal instructions or tasks back to office based support, or to outsourced service providers. Voice tasks, instructions and dictations sent on-the-go via BigHand Mobile instantly enter into the office workflow, and are then tracked via status updates and priority alerts, enhancing output. Overall BigHand Mobile helps expedite the document production process, cut costs and improve client service for professionals.
In order to achieve Vodafone Certified status, BigHand Mobile underwent technical evaluation by Vodafone UK. As a result, the application has passed the approval process, meeting the high standards demanded by Vodafone UK's customer base and delivering value to the UK marketplace.
As a Certified application, BigHand now has access to Vodafone UK's technical expertise and will be recommended to appropriate customers by Vodafone UK account managers. BigHand Mobile will be identified by the "Vodafone Certified Application" brand logo. This will allow BigHand to benefit from Vodafone UK's position as the UK's largest mobile network operator, offering its customers in-depth support and peace of mind when deploying new mobile applications.
Jonathan Carter, Client Solutions Director, BigHand, said: "We are delighted to be the only provider in our category to have achieved Vodafone Certified application status. Making the high technical grade Vodafone demand not only reflects the attention to detail within our development teams, but also the commitment we have made to maintaining a high technical standard over the long term. In the current climate many legal, accountancy, property and healthcare customers are looking to make efficiencies, while also still embracing mobile working, and BigHand delivers on both of those fronts."
BigHand joins a number of other certified application developers in the Vodafone UK applications portfolio which have developed solutions ranging from telematics and workflow solutions to tools that replicate the functionality or content from the desktop environment on to the mobile device.
