palmOne has selected a group of system integrators, independent hardware and software vendors, and value-added resellers to work together with its new palmOne Professional Services group, to provide businesses with the resources and know-how required to conceive, design, test, implement and deploy customized mobile solutions with palmOne devices. It also offers technical expertise to help businesses complete mobile solutions already in progress. palmOne Professional Services can work on-site with developers, leading or assisting with any stage of a mobile solution's development lifecycle.
The group offers a range of services from full lifecycle scoping, design and development of mobile solutions to technical support and training. In addition, for businesses who require pilot projects, or that do not want to invest in the upfront costs for infrastructure, development or ongoing maintenance, palmOne Professional Services offers a mobile application hosting service that can quickly be customized and deployed for a small monthly fee. palmOne manages the services infrastructure and provides an organization with personalized access to a secure website to view, download and manage data captured from handhelds in the field.
