HTML5 Application Allows Access to Workforce Collaboration and Project Management Platform from Any Modern Mobile Device
IRVINE, Calif. – July 24, 2012 – Mavenlink, the leading online work and project management solution, today announced the launch of a new mobile application, providing users with easy access to their workforce collaboration platform on any mobile device. Built using cross-platform mobile HTML5, Mavenlink users can easily collaborate, manage tasks, view files, and track time and expenses, all from their iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and other smartphones without needing to install apps or software.
“With the mobile workforce growing at an increasingly rapid pace, it has become clear that businesses require a centralized platform to collaborate freely from any location at any time,” said Ray Grainger, CEO at Mavenlink. “As one of the most popular work management solutions on the market, Mavenlink remains committed to providing the best online project and collaboration solution for service providers and companies of all sizes. The availability of our new, mobile application dramatically enhances our customers’ ability to conduct business in a secure, collaborative online workplace.”
Grainger continued, “Accelerating adoption and enhancing the user experience is a key reason for initially implementing an HTML5 approach. Since collaboration systems are by their very nature, invitation based, the ability for customers to access Mavenlink without requiring a native app enhances the likelihood of regular usage.”
Utilizing mobile HTML5, Mavenlink provides a complete business delivery platform that enables companies to manage work online from their smartphones. Strategy Analytics forecasts that sales of HTML5 compatible phones will hit 1 billion in 2013 (Wireless Device Strategies report “Global HTML5 Handset Sales Forecast”).
“Businesses seeking to promote innovation by encouraging individuals and teams to collaborate need to make it easy,” said Mark Levitt, Director of Enterprise Software and Communications, Strategy Analytics. “With mobile applications from vendors such as Mavenlink, workers in any location can access and share project information and tasks in centralized, online collaborative workplaces.”
