H3 Solutions, an industry leader in Microsoft SharePoint mobility, recently announced an update for its mobile application of the collaboration software.
According to the company, Mobile Entree 2.3 expands the support for SharePoint mobility for the growing tablet market, including Apple’s iPad and the Motorola Xoom tablet. The update includes administration updates and diagnostics tools. Additional features allow users to repackage and deploy mobile solutions quickly.
Panels is a new system allowing a flexible environment for tablets, smartphones and low-bandwith users. The system allows access to mobile applications, the company stated.
“Demand for tablet optimized interfaces for SharePoint has been huge” said Joe Herres, EVP of the product. “We have implemented a system that scales from smartphone to slate without having to build or configure separate apps for each. I really think we have hit this one out of the park.”
Tablets are expected to grow at an incredible rate, allowing employees easier access to company documents. Gartner recently lowered expectations for PC shipments to 387.8 million units, down from the previous forecast of 409 million units, due to the increased popularity of tablets.
