[prMac.com] From Cloudforce, New York, New York - GroupLogic(R), an industry leading provider of software products that unlock the power of new enterprise platforms, today announced it has launched its Mobile File Management (MFM) app on salesForce's AppExchange Mobile, extending the marketplace built for the social enterprise. mobilEcho is among the first apps to leverage AppExchange Mobile, tapping into the power of the proven Force platform, salesForce's social enterprise platform for employee social apps. mobilEcho is currently available for test drive on the AppExchange Mobile.
Whether brought to work as part of the bring your own device (BYOD) trend, or provided by the company itself, more and more people are using iPads and iPhones in the enterprise. IT organizations are moving to meet the demand and offer secure access to enterprise file servers without a native, user-accessible file system on those devices.
mobilEcho addresses this growing trend by enabling IT organizations to rapidly install and provide simple, secure and managed mobile file management for corporate iPad and iPhone users. As a result, employees are able to securely access the corporate file server from anywhere in the world, allowing them to retrieve up-to-date files and information that is crucial to their jobs.
"Making mobilEcho available on salesForce's AppExchange Mobile is a great way for more people to experience the security and peace of mind it provides both mobile users and IT staff in the enterprise," said Todd While, vice president, Mobility Solutions at GroupLogic. "We're delighted to be one of the first companies with an offering on AppExchange Mobile and are looking forward to working with the talented salesForce team."
"Customers continue to look to our partners as they transform themselves into social enterprises, and partners like GroupLogic are helping them with that shift," said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president, ISV Alliances, salesForce. "Apps like these exemplify the extraordinary reach of the AppExchange marketplace and continue to push the social, mobile, open and trusted capabilities customers expect from the salesForce ecosystem."
