Reading, UK – 16th September 2003 – Peramon, a world leader in mobile software for Sales and Field Service applications, today announced a strategic partnership with FrontRange Solutions Ltd., to extend the reach of its widely respected GoldMine Business Contact Manager, Corporate Edition, into the mobile arena.
The agreement represents a significant move by FrontRange Solutions into the growing area of enterprise data mobilisation with Peramon as a key technology partner and expert in the mobile environment. mGoldmine will use Peramon's innovative theMOBILIZER mobile middleware to provide mobile access from any device over any network to FrontRange Solution’s Goldmine Contact Manager application.
“As a result,” says EMEA product marketing manager for FrontRange, Alastair Trower, “for the first time, salespeople, engineers and other high-value mobile employees now have immediate access to vital information about their customers and prospects plus scheduled and completed activities. And, by removing the time-consuming need to synchronise with the office at the end of the day, staff are more productive, the work/life balance is improved and senior management are able to respond immediately to the ‘live picture’ of what is happening in the field.”
"In today’s increasingly tough and fast-moving competitive environment, being in the right place at the right time is no longer enough,” says Trower. “For remote staff and management alike, the ability of mGoldMine to put accurate, up-to-the-minute information in the palm of your hand is key to responsive, quality decision-making. In short, it puts you in control.”
For his part, David Townsend, managing director, Peramon Technology, says: “As a business, our objective is to improve the productivity and effectiveness of mobile sales and service staff by mobilising existing applications on existing devices. I have no doubt that, in mGoldMine, we have taken a major step forward in helping businesses improve their competitiveness on the basis of truly informed decision-making.”
“With the adoption of robust, cutting-edge software developed by leading mobile solutions provider, Peramon Technology,” confirms Trower, “the launch of mGoldMine is perfectly timed to extend contact information to all staff, wherever they are.”
