ClickSoftware Sparks Evolution In Business Mobility With Its New ClickAppStore

Stocks in this article: CKSW

In addition to its repository of numerous apps, ClickAppStore also includes an integrated visual development studio that lets developers drag and drop apps from ClickAppStore, and configure and interconnect them into streamlined workflows with the starter package apps. It also offers tools to build the user interface on the mobile device.

"Collaboration and communication among the mobile workforce has grown rapidly in recent years as a variety of industries leverage the availability of smartphones and tablet devices," said Nicholas McQuire, Research Director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies EMEA for International Data Corporation (IDC). "ClickSoftware's development of an enterprise AppStore will significantly improve the ability for organizations to manage and unify their mobile and field services workforce. The ClickAppStore will be an attractive option to a myriad of industries looking to overcome the 'Bring Your Own Device' issues that are a fast rising headache for IT departments."

"For over a decade, we have been developing and deploying business mobility solutions for some of the most advanced enterprises in the world. We have taken our experience, knowledge and technology, repackaged it for the modern mobility world, and are now making it available for all mobile workers - from office workers who travel occasionally, to mobile workers who literally spend all their working time in the field; and from line staff to managers and executives," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, Chairman and CEO of ClickSoftware. "We are enabling businesses of all sizes to take advantage of the new tablets and smartphones to boost their productivity and improve customer service, by transmitting and sharing data and decisions in real time, and we extend communication outside of the enterprise as well - to the customers of our customers, contractors, and suppliers," BenBassat added.

In a February 2012 report by Forrester Research Inc., entitled "Corporate App Store Environments Open New Market Opportunities," author Michele Pelino writes: "Corporate app store vendors must offer enterprises a range of delivery models to address demand for both on-premises and 'as-a-service' delivery."

ClickSoftware's mobility solutions and ClickApps are available on-premises, on-demand, or as a hybrid offering, providing flexibility for organizations, regardless of size or budget. Furthermore, ClickSoftware offers to its customers the infrastructure to create their own company's app-store, by 'carving out' for them a portion of ClickAppStore that contains the apps that they license.
