BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), today announced the release of the new ClickAppStore, offering a rich variety of business apps and a visual development studio to integrate discrete apps into composite apps, sharing context and running streamlined workflows. Its built-in integration with organizational back-office systems and business-grade mobility infrastructure, establishes ClickAppStore as the most complete platform for enterprise mobility, and overcomes many of the limitations of contemporary consumer-level AppStores. Now every mobile worker, from field-service technicians to insurance agents, from healthcare workers to public safety providers, from sales representatives to bankers and business executives, can boost their productivity with a device of their choice.
Recognizing the unique characteristics of enterprise mobility, ClickSoftware built its newest patent-pending innovation of mobility solutions around the following concepts:Starter Packages for Basic Mobile Workers The Mobile Worker Starter Package contains a subset of integrated apps designed to cover the basic common needs of all mobile workers, such as clock-in and clock-out, daily schedule, navigation help, job notes, and more. This baseline provides an enterprise-class equivalent to the introductory apps one has when opening the box of a new mobile device, but before downloading additional apps. The Mobile Worker Starter Package serves as the cornerstone on which you can place additional apps that you download from the ClickAppStore, or newly developed ones. In fact, using the basic Mobile Worker Starter Package, the ClickSoftware team has already built additional verticalized starter packages, such as the Field Service Starter Package, which includes Schedule, Timesheets, MyView, Performance, and MyShift apps. These can be further tailored into specialized versions for cable technicians by adding, for example, Up-Selling, or Remote Activation apps. Other examples of Starter Packages include the FieldSales Starter Package designed to serve the needs of a traveling "door-to-door" sales person. In addition, the Executive Dashboard Starter Package provides real time updates to a travelling executive on key performance indicators of the business, such as number of jobs completed, utilization, travel time/miles, customer service score, crisis emerging alerts, and more. A complete listing of ClickApps and Starter Packages are available online. Developers' Easy-to-Use Visual Studio
