Mobile devices like the iPhone, BlackBerry, iPad, and tablet PCs are now powerful enough to enable Knowledge Workers to work efficiently outside the office. However it is only companies that create their own web based applications for smartphones and tablet PCs that are able to provide their employees with the most flexible and efficient environment in which to work.
United Planets standard portal software Intrexx enables companies to transform all the information and applications residing on an Enterprise Portal into mobile web applications with just a few clicks of the mouse. Without programming, companies can convert Intrexx portal applications and forms for access by modern smartphones or tablet PCs. Even data from existing systems such as SAP or Lotus Notes can quickly be made mobile in this way.
Intrexx helps modern Knowledge Workers work whenever they want, explains Axel Wessendorf, managing director at United Planet. It provides employees with access to vital company, product and project data from wherever they are working. They are not only able to view this data, but also to change or update it. This is particularly important for field-based employees or managers who need to be able to monitor business processes at all times.
A mobile Intrexx Enterprise Portal provides employees with read and write access to the most important company information from anywhere, at any time. Whether they are dealing with price lists, material data or product information, employees can edit all data on the spot. All modifications are transferred to the portal in real-time.
The portal also helps employees to be integrated and involved in all the companys internal processes – even if they are out of the office: For example, via their smartphone employees can file their holiday applications and managers can release documents or approve expense claims on the go. The result: iPads and smartphones become fully equipped mobile workplaces.
Because the portal runs in the mobile devices browser, there is no software to install. The user simply logs in via the Web for immediate access to all the applications on the portal.
