Alltel Wireless Helps Businesses Manage Mobile Workforce With Webalo Mobile Dashboard
Communication and data access for field employees just got easier and more efficient. Today's exclusive launch of the Webalo Mobile Dashboard from Alltel Wireless, America's largest network, lets companies transform their enterprise applications and data so that it is easy to access and use on the smartphones of mobile employees.
Available now on www.alltelsolutions.com the Webalo Mobile Dashboard allows mobile workers to receive important data in a format that is easy to read and navigate. Users can view and interact with information such as customer data, order status, inventory lists, key performance indicators and other vital business intelligence, which makes it easier to answer questions, support decisions, and close deals on the spot - without waiting to return to the office or relying on remote connectivity through a laptop computer.
Designed for businesses of all sizes, the hosted Webalo Mobile Dashboard provides a simple, question-and-answer-based wizard that lets non-IT staff handle setup and deployment. For companies that prefer inside-the-firewall technology, the Webalo Appliance can be installed and integrated with company servers.
"The business environment is moving at ever-increasing speeds, and Alltel understands how critical it is for mobile workers to be connected with enterprise resources," said David Maddox, vice president of product marketing at Alltel. "When decisions need to be made quickly, businesses can trust that data will be available on demand with the Webalo Mobile Dashboard."
The Webalo Mobile Dashboard is available for $25 per month per device and is compatible with Alltel smartphones including all BlackBerry models running operating system Version 4.0 or above, HTC PPC 6800, Motorola Q9c, and all devices running Java using the MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1 standards. For a complete list of compatible devices, visit alltelsolutions.com.
Alltel Wireless continues to provide choice and flexibility to the customer's wireless experience with its exclusive "My Circle" feature, giving customers unlimited calling to and from any five, 10 or 20 numbers on any network for free. Alltel Wireless was also the first to offer Anytime Plan Changes, giving customers the flexibility to change their calling plans at any time, without extending their current contract.
Webalo technology transforms enterprise applications and data to make them compatible with mobile devices. The resulting "anywhere, any time, on-demand" availability of enterprise data on handheld devices turns such devices into viable alternatives to desktop, laptop, and palmtop computer hardware, and lets mobile employees work more productively -- on the spot -- to solve problems, answer questions, monitor operations, close sales, and make informed decisions. The Webalo Mobile Dashboard Service is available both as a hosted service and as a behind-the-firewall appliance and conforms to the native user interface of any BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, or Java-enabled smartphone.
