Vodafone New Zealand and BlinkMobile have joined forces in an exclusive telecommunications partnership enabling businesses to mobilise information across smartphones and tablets.
The partnership brings a unique solution to Vodafone business customers through BlinkMobile’s mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP), which enables businesses to benefit from mobilising information across their organisation on a variety of internet capable devices – such as smartphones and tablets.
The Blink Mobility Platform allows enterprises 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.
Vodafone Director of Sales, Grant Hopkins, explains: “Vodafone customers on the Blink Mobility Platform will be able to abandon paper systems in favour of remotely submitting reports, accessing applications and completing job sheets while they’re out in the field. It’s a future-proof and more simple way for our business customers to work wherever they are.
“This is a hugely exciting collaboration for Vodafone and BlinkMobile. Organisations around the world are discovering the benefits of mobilising their workforce, and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this innovation in New Zealand.”
Hopkins continues: “Our business customers understand the service performance and productivity gains in enabling their mobile and remote teams to constantly access and update their systems – live, in real time, regardless of location. And we’re able to provide a means to support these enterprise mobilisation plans.”
BlinkMobile Director, Tony Harris, adds: “This partnership with Vodafone New Zealand is the first BlinkMobile has signed with a telecommunications provider anywhere in the world. BlinkMobile is excited with the visionary approach Vodafone New Zealand is taking in providing their business customers with a complete mobile solution beyond devices and data plans, and additionally how those employees access just those components of their business systems that add massive value to their mobile work day.
“BlinkMobile has established a number of partnerships with organisations large and small across a number of countries, but this collaboration with a marketing powerhouse like Vodafone New Zealand makes us extremely excited about the future for BlinkMobile in this region and beyond.”
