Podio For IPad Supports 12StarsMedia's "anywhere, Anytime" Workstyle.

Stocks in this article: CTXS

Citrix today announced the launch of Citrix Podio for iPad, available for download immediately in the App Store. Completely reimagined for the iPad, the Podio app delivers the best way to automate simple tasks and structure lightweight workflows, with simplicity and mobile efficiency in mind. With tablets becoming standard devices for business productivity and the increasing adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies in companies across the world, Podio for iPad brings all the power of the collaborative work platform’s web offering to the iPad’s intuitive interface, connecting people, projects, social and mobile to unlock the exciting potential of seamless anywhere, anytime working.

Supporting the Future of Work

In many teams and small businesses, everyday work gets done using a patchwork of spreadsheets, documents and email; but these tools aren’t built for collaboration or sharing. Standalone applications and services can be used to manage core business processes like CRM, project management, event management or recruiting, but these tools can be rigid, complex and disconnected from the rest of a teams’ work.

Podio connects collaboration and business processes through workspaces and apps – more powerful, collaborative and social alternatives to spreadsheets and email. Podio apps can be found in the Podio App Market and customized for any type of work using the simple drag-and-drop Podio App Builder, a unique tool that enables anyone to create custom apps for their work – whether it’s managing projects, interfacing with clients or partners, planning a conference, coordinating email marketing or receiving customer feedback. No technical skills or IT support is needed to create a Podio app – anyone can set one up in minutes.

Podio for iPad extends the power of Podio’s core features, including workspaces, tasks, activity streams, meetings and calendars. It also makes more than 700 pre-built apps from the Podio App Market available to iPad users.

Customer Adoption

Video production company, 12Stars Media, uses Podio on the iPad to manage the video production process for its clients. From a prospect’s enquiry about 12Star’s services, to the moment they become a customer. “We use Podio to manage our entire video production company, including internal collaboration, project management with our producers and CRM,” said Rocky Walls, CEO of 12Stars Media Production. “The new Podio app for iPad is transforming the way we work while away from the office, making us more responsive, productive and efficient when on location or traveling.”
