Although Blackberry has been the standard platform for professionals for years, Android (News - Alert) has been working hard to establish itself as more than just a ‘fun’ platform and start to capture the business market (evidenced by the recent Samsung commercials).
Taking a cue from this new business-oriented direction, Flowfinity Wireless has announced Flowfinity Actions 7.0.
Some of the tasks that Flowfinity Actions 7.0 enables businesses to customize their mobile apps to perform include: document management, data collection, approvals, and workflows. The app is aimed at increasing efficiency, and decreasing paperwork (which can quickly add many hours to the workflow process).
Larry Wilson, vice president of sales and marketing at Flowfinity, was enthusiastic about Flowfinity Actions 7.0 in a recent statement; “With Flowfinity Actions 7.0, organizations can make existing processes more efficient and increase revenue while providing seamless cross-platform support for popular mobile devices.” Android, of course, is a necessary component of that plan; “Adoption of Android smartphones and tablets in the enterprise is increasing.”
For enterprises, Android is not only a popular option; it is also a cost-efficient one, as developing apps for Android costs far less than for other platforms. In a Network World debate moderated by editor in chief John Dix, Dennis Baliton, a senior app manager at MEDL Mobile, praised the benefits for enterprise that Android offers.
Among the benefits he cited were Java’s “mature,” “well-documented” and “extremely robust” nature, as well as the fact that it was not limited to a single device manufacturer, leading not only to more variety, but to greater availability of the newest and hottest devices.
With the widespread popularity of Android and the increasingly common ‘BYOD’ (Bring Your Own Device) policy, enterprises need to be able to provide apps for Android.
Flowfinity Actions 7.0 is part of Android’s changing reputation, and one of the reasons the platform is about to get taken more seriously.
