Innovative BlackBerry based applications to be showcased at IBM's Pulse
2009 conference in Las Vegas
HAMILTON, ON, Feb. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - The Createch Group's Asset Management
Solutions (AMS) business unit, today announced the availability of its
BlackBerry based applications designed exclusively to enhance and extend the
capabilities of IBM's Maximo/Tivoli asset and service management applications.
The Createch Group's goal is to help organizations leverage the power of
their existing BlackBerry infrastructure to provide applications that support
an organization's asset and service management requirements. The currently
available applications include:
Work Manager for BlackBerry(R) - Helps remotely manage the work order
lifecycle of technicians and field workers. It provides mobile
functionality that enables managers and field technicians to use
BlackBerry devices to receive work orders and information, indicate work
accomplished, and upload status, hours, and additional information to the
Approver for BlackBerry(R) - Allows mobile users to view and respond to
any Maximo generated approval requests including purchase requisitions,
work requests, and others using their BlackBerry device. The application
includes all the details regarding the approval request allowing the user
to make an informed approval decision, without having to logon to Maximo.
"Our BlackBerry applications for Maximo offers a potential game changing
opportunity that can provide organizations with a clear competitive edge with
minimal investment in additional infrastructure," said Mike Popovic, Senior
VP, The Createch Group. "Over the next few months we expect to release other
BlackBerry based applications that will continue to enhance and extend Maximo
across the enterprise".
These applications take advantage of the existing infrastructure and
inherent security of the BlackBerry platform and provides an intuitive, simple
yet functional user experience. Organizations that have already deployed
Maximo and the BlackBerry will require minimal user training with little or no
impact on their existing infrastructure.
The Createch Group will be showcasing its Work Manager for BlackBerry and
Approver for BlackBerry applications at IBM's Pulse Conference in Las Vegas,
NV February 9th to 12th 2009 at booth number E513.
