OPENAIR DELIVERS OPENAIR MOBILE ON BLACKBERRY

Cloud Computing PSA Software Leader Enables Businesses to Manage Time and Expense via Full Mobile Access


SAN MATEO, Calif.—October 13, 2009—OpenAir, Inc., a NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) company and a leading provider of cloud computing professional services automation (PSA) and services resource planning (SRP) software, today announced the availability of OpenAir Mobile on Blackberry AppWorld, giving project-based businesses the ability to manage mission critical services processes via full mobile access for time tracking and expense management.  OpenAir is the first and only PSA software company that makes it possible for services professionals to run their businesses via Blackberry.  To download OpenAir Mobile, OpenAir customers can go to Blackberry AppWorld www.blackberry.com/appworld and search for OpenAir and select to install.

OpenAir Mobile for Blackberry only requires a client’s OpenAir credentials to sync with their account.  This new application, combined with the recent release of OpenAir Mobile for iPhone, provides the mobile services industry with ubiquitous access to key business metrics.  For more information about OpenAir Mobile please visit www.openair.com/mobile.

Unlike other PSA solutions, OpenAir provides services professionals with the ability to run their businesses in entirely the cloud.  OpenAir Mobile includes the following features that are essential to services professionals on the move:

  • Access to OpenAir timesheets and expense management using the easy-to-use, familiar Blackberry interface.
  • Instantaneous synchronisation with your OpenAir account to utilise up-to-date customer, project, and task data.

"The services world is an industry of road warriors," said Morris Panner, CEO of OpenAir. "Our Blackberry application is yet another example of OpenAir enabling the services workforce to be as effective as possible. At OpenAir, we offer an outstanding solution that enables customers to conduct their business in the way that makes the most sense for their goals and processes."

Among the many OpenAir clients taking advantage of the enhanced mobility and access provided by the OpenAir Mobile for Blackberry application is AeroScout.

AeroScout, based in Redwood City, CA, is the market leader in Unified Asset Visibility (UAV). AeroScout solutions use Wi-Fi-based Active RFID, sensors, RTLS and other technologies to provide complete wireless asset tracking and monitoring. As a pioneer in the Wi-Fi RFID market, AeroScout’s solutions are used by hundreds of customers worldwide in healthcare, manufacturing, logistics and other industries to automate business processes and deliver context-aware applications.

"I find the OpenAir Blackberry application to be very useful, especially the expenses module," said Amit Larom, VP of Worldwide Professional Services at AeroScout.  "I can easily punch in my expenses on-the-go as I incur them, catch up while I am at the airport, or even while on a flight, without ever opening my laptop. As a company that advocates wireless technologies, OpenAir Mobile for Blackberry is a perfect fit for us."
