EXFO Launches EXFO Apps, a Gateway to Productivity-Enhancing Test Applications
As the first section of the EXFO Store, EXFO Apps, houses software
applications designed to dramatically boost field-testing productivity
QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX:
EXF) announced today the launch of the EXFO Apps section of the newly
introduced EXFO Store. Accessible directly from any EXFO FTB platform,
this portal reflects EXFO’s commitment to deliver software applications
that boost everyday field-testing efficiency and productivity.
EXFO’s FTB test platforms now offer 3G, VPN and Wi-Fi connectivity,
providing users with real-time, 24/7 access to the EXFO Apps portal,
right from the field. This unmatched data connectivity to the FTB
platforms provides users with real-time notifications of new test
application releases as they become available. In addition, EXFO Apps
users can benefit from on-the-spot training through on-demand “How-To”
video capsules. Downloadable and viewable on the FTB platforms, these
capsules provide field technicians with application-specific,
EXFO-recommended test methods and procedures.
The exclusive applications found in EXFO Apps enable FTB platform users
to work faster and smarter, with an immediate positive impact on
test-routine efficiency and everyday productivity. In fact, the
software applications–such as ConnectorMax and EXpert IPTV–can run
simultaneously with the platform’s test modules. In addition, EXFO is
the first to introduce on-demand timed trials of all test applications,
allowing users to benefit from test enhancements immediately in a
“try-before-you-buy” environment. All software upgrades can be
automated through the EXFO Connect systems, another key element for
field productivity enhancements.
“The vision behind the FTB Ecosystem is to offer our customers the right
tools to help them face their biggest single challenge: controlling
their operating expenses,” said Ã‰tienne Gagnon, EXFO’s Vice-President
of Product Management and Marketing. “The EXFO Apps portal is another
key component of the FTB Ecosystem. It enables network operators to
provide their teams with value-added software applications that boost
their on-field productivity.”
