Sao-Paulo-headquartered, CRE8, will deliver BlinkMobile solutions to carriers as well as to enterprise and government across Latin America through the development of a network of resellers. At the same time, Johannesburg-based PLP Group has signed with BlinkMobile as its exclusive distributor for all of Africa. Tony Harris, Director and Chief Sales Officer, BlinkMobile Interactive, said, “We are delighted to be expanding our distribution network into South America and Africa with the appointment of CRE8 and the PLP Group. Both companies are recognised leading IT service mobility vendors in their respective markets and have demonstrable technical and support excellence which will support strong sales growth.” Established in 2005, CRE8 delivers commercial innovative mobile solutions and services to corporate enterprises and carriers in Latin America. CRE8 specifically selected BlinkMobile as its enterprise mobility partner of choice based on the product’s platform maturity, experience in carrier engagements, track record of success in local government and the international experience and support from BlinkMobile’s directors. Mark Slocum, CEO, CRE8 said, “We signed with BlinkMobile as part of a strategy to increase the quality and range of product servicing our clients. At the same time, the BlinkMobile platform is perfectly positioned for companies which will deploy its feature-rich applications using the 4G high speed networks being developed across the continent. “The combination of BlinkMobile’s platform maturity and the company’s extensive private and public sector track record of success will enable us to demonstrate a rapid return on investment to organisations in this part of the world while at the same time assisting organisations to rapidly migrate from paper-based administrative systems resulting in gains in both productivity and efficiency. As BlinkMobile negates the need for organisations to buy expensive infrastructure, we expect business to follow the company’s Australian customer base in rapidly taking up the offering and realising immediate benefits.” In South Africa, Johannesburg-based, PLP Group, a leading provider of bespoke business solutions, will drive both market expansion and solution implementation of BlinkMobile across sub-Saharan Africa. The company decided to partner with BlinkMobile based on its ability to cost-effectively scale across an enterprise for different departmental requirements while at the same time backed by round the clock customer support. Lloyd Ball, Group Managing Director, PLP Group, said, “BlinkMobile offers users fast deployment and can be used on any mobile device using any technology for an infinite number of applications. “Corporate and public sector users will be able to customise applications in infinite environments, safe in the knowledge that BlinkMobile is a global product already proven, and operational in numerous countries around the world. BlinkMobile’s technology offers immense opportunity and application that can only be limited by our own imagination.” PLP has also decided to deploy BlinkMobile within its own business operations enabling employees to access the most up-to-date client data while operating in the field. Harris added, “From the very beginning we’ve developed the Blink Mobility Platform with strong international capabilities by drawing on the global nature of Amazon Web Services. As a result, we now have BlinkMobile services operating in Brazil, the US, Singapore and Australia. In addition, the platform also has full international language support so customers can deliver their apps in any character set around the world. “We now look forward to working with both Cre8 and PLP Group to achieve the business benefits for their customers that we have been able to achieve for our partners and customers in Australia and New Zealand. The economic growth in these regions coupled with their rapid uptake of mobile telephony is exciting and will provide us with opportunities to further develop innovative products and applications to ensure our partners can meet their customer needs.”About BlinkMobile Interactive BlinkMobile Interactive is an Australian-headquartered Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) provider whose robust global deployment capabilities combined with a highly innovative architecture enables enterprise and government organisations to rapidly and reliably build, deploy and manage many types of mobile applications across the widest range of devices and operating systems.

The 2013 Government Mobility Survey, based on interviews with senior managers across federal, state and local governments, found strong enthusiasm for the potential of mobile devices and services. Of those questioned, 81.8 per cent said they would "improve processes and deliver efficiencies". However 47 per cent of respondents admitted they didn't know how much budget to allocate for mobility projects. A further 31 per cent said they had "a pretty good idea" while 15 per cent felt they had "formulated an estimate". Only 7 per cent of respondents were confident they knew precisely how much money they would need to spend on their project. The survey, conducted by Tech Research Asia on behalf of BlinkMobile Interactive, offers fresh insight into the way mobility is being used within the public sector and how this usage is likely to expand during the next two years. Darren Besgrove, Director and COO, BlinkMobile Interactive, said, “It is interesting to see how quickly demand for mobility solutions is growing within all levels of government. There is clearly a broad understanding of the benefits it can deliver. "Yet the research shows there remains work to be done in the formulation of strategies, the choice of technology and accurate budgets. This challenge is likely to stem from agencies recently appreciating the need to take an agency wide approach to mobility over the traditional ‘point solution’ or project-by-project approach." The survey found most agencies intend to steer away from the prospect of developing mobility solutions in-house with only 25 per cent of respondents nominating this path in their future strategies. The remainder plan to either use existing vendor mobility solutions (38 per cent) or engage a specialist organisation to design and implement a solution (37 per cent). The study also revealed that senior business managers are more likely to be the driver of mobility strategies rather than the IT department itself. "This shows the majority of government agencies recognise they don't have all the required skills in-house to undertake a successful mobility project," said Besgrove. "With more devices and more capabilities within those devices, plus open web services evolving so quickly, they see merit in making use of the experience and knowledge of an external provider to get the very best result for their users, be they citizens or internal staff. ” Asked to nominate their key priorities for agency-wide mobility projects, 70 per cent of respondents identified integration with existing systems and services as being either "extremely" or "very" important. This was followed by support for future technologies (59 per cent) and the ability to support most or all of a department's needs (55 per cent). When it comes to the specific functions within their agency that would benefit most from mobility, more than half of respondents (51 per cent) nominated field data collection and inspections / reporting as being either "extremely" or "very" important. Email was placed in the same category by 50 per cent, followed by work orders and asset management (36 per cent). "These priorities align with those of many private-sector organisations," said Besgrove. "The key benefit of mobility is that it can provide access to centrally held applications and data. This is particularly powerful for field workforces who need fast, reliable access regardless of where they happen to be.” Asset management, however, is a key candidate for mobility and many organisations have not yet fully realised the advantages it can bring in terms of time savings, efficiency and actual asset and lifecycle management. On the device front, the survey found Apple's iPad was the most supported device within government agencies (nominated by 73.13 per cent of respondents). This was followed by the iPhone (67.16 per cent), Android devices (40.30 per cent) and BlackBerry handsets (33.58 per cent). Tim Dillon, Director of Tech Research Asia, said, “The data clearly highlights the desire of government agencies to incorporate mobility into their business operations to provide better services to both employees and constituents. It’s pleasing to see the mobility discussion change focus from a preoccupation with ‘which device are you using?’ to actual outcomes around productivity and engagement.” "IT managers within government agencies are dealing with a diverse range of client devices," added Besgrove. "For an agency-wide mobility project to succeed, applications must be able to run across them all. Careful selection of a robust application management and deployment structure is therefore vital as is the requirement to deliver users activity-based applications specific to their job roles and daily tasks. This ensures mobility projects have the highest possible success with greater user adoption and less training and support costs.” The complete 20 page report by Tech Research Asia into Australian Government Mobility Trends and Issues can be downloaded from the BlinkMobile website: http://www.blinkmobile.com.au About BlinkMobile Interactive BlinkMobile Interactive is an Australian-headquartered Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) provider whose robust global deployment capabilities combined with a highly innovative architecture enables enterprise and government organisations to rapidly and reliably build, deploy and manage many types of mobile applications across the widest range of devices and operating systems.

Hornsby Shire Council Mobilises Community and Internal Services with BlinkMobile Solutions 2012-12-04T06:11:00Z hornsby-shire-council-mobilises-community-and-internal-services-with-blinkmobile-solutions BlinkMobile Interactive today announced that Hornsby Council will begin providing staff with mobile device access to key internal corporate systems by year end. The first mobile services to go live will include a customer request form that will enable field staff to log and manage customer queries at any time, from any location. Also to go live is a site risk assessment form designed to boost staff safety when working out in the field. The solutions are being developed in BlinkForms with BlinkMobile’s Sydney-based partner, ACRESTA (formerly known as EcoView Mobile), a technology and consulting services company who will work closely with Council to roll-out the technology. Development of both the customer request and site risk assessment forms are expected to be completed within one month. The projects follow the February 2012 introduction of a BlinkAnswers solution which enables ratepayers easier access to high-demand Council website information, using any mobile device such as a smartphone, tablet or PDA. Craig Munns, Manager Information Communications and Technology, Hornsby Council, said, “Just like any other organisation, the Council is always looking for ways to increase productivity and efficiency. We believe we can achieve significant gains by making our existing processes mobile so that staff can report and retrieve information while out in the field.” The key criteria for Hornsby Council’s selection of the BlinkMobile solutions include, the requirement to be able to work with any device, ease of development and the speed of deployment. The customer request form will allow staff to electronically capture information and images about damaged assets or maintenance requirements from any location. The data will be automatically forwarded to the Council's records branch before being uploaded into the TRIM document management system and then processed either to the Customer Request Management or Asset Maintenance systems. The public will also be given access to the same form via the Council's mobile and main website, enabling individuals to register requests for assistance or attention quickly and easily. Focused on staff safety, the mobilised risk assessment form will follow a similar process of uploading into TRIM and is expected to streamline the paperwork associated with working offsite. “Mobility is providing us with better communication channels both to our workforce and community. We're making it easier for the community to communicate with us, while for staff, we're providing tools to increase accuracy, efficiency and safety, this will in the long run provide cost benefits to both Council and our community,” Munns added. ACRESTA has already started work with the Council to develop two additional electronic forms which will be made available to field staff in early 2013. One will be used in the capture of tree management data. The other will enable work orders to be delivered directly to truck crews on their mobile devices while out on the road, removing the need for trucks to return to the depot for additional instructions. Darren Besgrove, Director, BlinkMobile Interactive stated, “We are delighted to be working with Hornsby Council to mobilise communication services initially with its community and now with Council staff. We are seeing time savings and process efficiencies across many roles and activities becoming increasingly critical to organisations as the key business drivers of this decade and have tailored our unique approach to enterprise mobility solutions to meet this growing need.” About BlinkMobile Interactive BlinkMobile Interactive develops and markets a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) that allows any organisation to provide rich mobile interactions and response mechanisms from their existing web-based information and business systems.

BlinkMobile Announces Five More Councils Commit to BlinkForms 2012-11-27T04:34:00Z blinkmobile-announces-five-more-councils-commit-to-blinkforms BlinkMobile Interactive, an Australian headquartered Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) provider, today announced that five more councils have committed to BlinkMobile’s Forms package in the last four weeks. Moreland City Council in Victoria, and Hornsby, Pittwater, Singleton and Marrickville councils in New South Wales, will use BlinkForms to automate processes for mobile and in-field staff as part of their mobility IT strategies, enabling staff to capture, send and receive data remotely using mobile forms from any mobile device. The councils plan to implement BlinkForms in a variety of applications ranging from lodgement of service requests to job safety analysis, compliance, tree inspections and council asset management. The solutions will be developed by BlinkMobile’s Sydney based partner, EcoView Global, a technology and consulting services company who will work with each council to tailor their particular solutions. BlinkForms allows organisations to rapidly design and share electronic forms, allowing data capture and image capture (including GPS information) across all mobile devices. The service interfaces with existing enterprise systems and workflow to create a two-way exchange of information that delivers significant business value at the same time as improving efficiency and productivity. Darren Besgrove, Director and COO, BlinkMobile Interactive, said, “We are delighted that councils are recognising the business benefits that can be achieved with BlinkForms. It is a flexible and scalable solution and has off-line capabilities which makes it a very attractive business proposition, as staff can be productive even when there is no network connection, uploading data later. ” BlinkForms will enable the councils to replace manual, time-consuming processes, remove data duplication and speed response times which will increase employee productivity and reduce council costs.

Rebel Sports Goes Live With Mobile OHS Store Audits and Reporting Powered By BlinkMobile 2012-07-23T00:13:00Z rebel-sports-goes-live-with-mobile-ohs-store-audits-and-reporting-powered-by-blinkmobile Rebel Group, part of the Super Retail Group Limited, has unveiled a mobile Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) audit software solution which will be used to help protect 5,000 staff across the company's nationwide network of 140 sports stores. Built on the Blink Mobility Platform the new process will dramatically cut the time required to conduct each audit and all but eliminates paper-based OHS audits within the Group. The OHS system was developed by specialist IT services company and BlinkMobile partner, Multibase, using the blinkForms module which enables the rapid design and sharing of electronic forms across all mobile devices. The system will be used by Rebel Group regional managers to conduct on-site OHS audits twice each year. Using iPads, managers are guided through a blinkForms-designed questionnaire, ascertaining store compliance with all relevant state and federal OHS requirements. Answers are entered either on- or off-line into the form and automatically uploaded from the iPad to the Group's intranet whenever an Internet connection is next available. If the answers indicate further activity is required for compliance, the system initiates a follow up workflow complete with deadlines and escalation procedures to ensure swift resolution. The system is expected to build on Rebel Group’s management understanding of OHS activity as all data derived from audits will be available for analysis via the organisation's online portal. Danny Trevisiol, Rebel Group Support Office WHS Coordinator, explains, “The decision to use blinkForms was heavily influenced by the ability to report by factors such as store, region or manager. Originally, we looked at developing the audit in Excel spreadsheets but then realised we had an opportunity to use the changing technology to cut down on paperwork and streamline reporting. That's when we decided to look at BlinkMobile. We wanted a platform that would allow us to fully integrate and utilise the data a lot more, rather than simply introducing a mobile device to digitise a paper-based system.” Rebel Group has more than 130 stores across Australia and employs over 4,500 employees.

Mobile Mentor is an independent mobile solutions provider for enterprise and government in Australia and New Zealand and their appointment forms a key element of BlinkMobile’s strategy to further build out its overall Asia Pacific business. Mobile Mentor was selected on the basis of its strong industry heritage and its intimate understanding of the mobile business requirements of enterprise and government organisations in both countries. In addition to its mobile application business, Mobile Mentor provides a range of mobile management services including 24/7 mobile helpdesk, mobile cost optimisation, mobile device management as well as consultancy services and an innovative BYOD solution. Under the agreement, Mobile Mentor will provide organisations in Australia and New Zealand with the Blink Mobility Platform either as a standalone solution or as a package complete with consulting, training, support and integration with complimentary third party products and services. This will enable Mobile Mentor to build, deploy and monitor customer applications on the Blink Mobility Platform to ensure optimal end user uptake. Denis O’Shea, CEO of Mobile Mentor, said, “The Blink Mobility Platform and the company’s proven expertise in mobile business fits perfectly into our portfolio of mobility solutions and value added services. It offers us the opportunity to fulfill a rapidly emerging need and add value to our clients’ enterprise mobility programs. “At the outset, we were impressed by BlinkMobile as the platform enables clients to easily mobile enable existing applications and rapidly build forms-based solutions to streamline the daily tasks of mobile workers. Some organisations are ready to start using mobile as a channel to engage with their external customers and the Blink Mobility Platform also fits perfectly with this strategy. The Blink Mobility Platform is an innovative technology which revolutionises the delivery of mobile functionality from existing business systems to any internet capable mobile device, abstracting the user need for information from the requirements of the back-end systems. This enables an enterprise to easily extend their existing investment in business information systems, modelled as end-user interactions process and putting the mobile user at the centre of development efforts rather than the business process. “By working with mobile solutions focused business partners such as Mobile Mentor, we combine our partners’ delivery capabilities and close customer relationships with our innovative technology and global deployment capabilities,” said Tony Harris, Director, BlinkMobile Interactive. “Our partnership with Mobile Mentor will benefit customers who increasingly want more business value delivered by fewer strategic partners who at the same time can provide all the functionality they require in order to mobilise their enterprise applications. “At BlinkMobile, we place an extremely high priority on product development to bring our customers the most effective mobile enterprise application platform. Partnering with Mobile Mentor for Australia and New Zealand was a natural choice. The company is known for its industry leadership, customer service and performance in delivering business outcomes. We look forward to a mutually beneficial and profitable partnership moving forward,” said Harris. BlinkMobile’s partnership with Mobile Mentor follows the company’s announcement last month that it had signed a reseller partner agreement with Singapore-based TechInject to support growth of the BlinkMobility platform across Asia. BlinkMobile’s customer base in Australia comprises all three levels of Government as well as a wide range of private sector organisations including, Porter Davis Constructions, ABC Driving Schools, Carbon Trade Exchange, Bond University, University of Western Sydney, HSBC Waratahs and Brisbane Archdiocese of Catholic Education.

Otago Polytechnic Deploys BlinkMobile Strategic Mobile Enterprise Application Platform 2012-05-23T22:26:00Z otago-polytechnic-deploys-blinkmobile-strategic-mobile-enterprise-application-platform Otago Polytechnic, a provider of quality tertiary education and training to a broad range of communities, has announced that it will deploy the BlinkMobile Interactive mobile enterprise application platform. This will enable administration staff, lecturers and students to benefit from the mobilising of information across the organisation on a wide variety of devices such as mobile phones, tablets and kiosks. The Blink Mobility Platform is a cloud-based service that allows users to take any existing back-end information systems or web-accessible services and, through a single management platform, deliver many different applications or mobile services to any device. Otago Polytechnic’s students will benefit from BlinkMobile’s unique interaction-oriented architecture which will enable the organisation’s IT department to deliver tailored interactions that individual students require onto the devices they want to use. The architecture’s unique user focus behind all development will allow the polytechnic to repurpose its existing web-based information while embracing other external sources of content (such as transport and accommodation) that build additional value for students and their need for information. “We had originally developed several native applications but were aware of the application breakout and their costs and wanted a new approach to enterprise mobility across multiple devices. We ideally wanted to deploy an enterprise mobilisation strategy. “At the outset, we did our due diligence for solutions which could support our enterprise mobilisation plans. We prized BlinkMobile’s ease of use and its track record of successful deployments. Not only did they have first-class reference sites in the tertiary education sector but we also had confidence in their ability to support our strategy while presenting a good cultural fit and value for money,” said Michael Collins, CIO, Otago Polytechnic. Once BlinkMobile is fully deployed in August this year, the polytechnic will be able to rapidly and reliably create, test, deploy and support any number of real-world solutions from a single platform. “We’ll be able to remove hundreds of databases and centralise information. Students will be able to register their interest for courses, request course content information and submit their assessments for marking just to name a few applications,” says Collins. Otago Polytechnic will deploy various solutions from Blink Mobile including blinkAnswers which allows marketers and prospective students to browse the prospectus and select courses of interest for future review. blinkForms will enable students to submit their assessments for marking while blinkLive will enable students to engage with administrators, careers advisors and lecturers in a secure, closed mobile environment. “The opportunities are endless and looking to the future we’ll review how the BlinkMobile platform may be integrated into our core IT curriculum course as both a tool for application development and a backbone for innovation. “Beyond, we also see major opportunities to extend the use of the platform throughout the Otago region with organisations such as Dunedin Tourism with whom we recently trialled the technology for the organisation’s regional events and promotions activities,” says Collins. Otago Polytechnic is one of the largest employers, service providers and consumers in the Otago region and is also a cornerstone of the area’s economic, social and cultural development. The polytechnic has 8,650 full and part-time students, more than 700 staff and offers over 100 programmes from foundation certificates to postgraduate degrees. “Collaboration is our preferred mode of operation, whether that involves learning partnerships with our students, international collaborations or practical business partnerships with other providers in our sector. The BlinkMobile Interactive platform will support this focus moving forward,” says Collins.
