New mobile capabilities for Accellion’s kiteworks
Accellion, a provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration, has added new mobile features to its kiteworks secure content platform.
Accellion reports new kiteworks mobile features include the following key capabilities:
Integration with Microsoft Office for iOS. Users can use native Office applications on iOS devices and securely open, edit and save files automatically in kiteworks. This provides another choice of editors in addition to the secure integrated editor that is included with the kiteworks mobile apps.
Mobile sync and push. Users now have the ability to select files for offline use that are automatically synchronized to their mobile devices. In addition, content owners can also push documents to the mobile devices of their collaborators and content consumers automatically, ensuring that critical documents such as a product price list or sales brochure are always up to date on users' devices. Users may also choose to enable these features only while connected to a WiFi network in order to preserve mobile data usage.
Field operation mobile reference app. The application demonstrates how the kiteworks secure content platform can be used to build custom mobile applications to support remote field workers. The reference app enables users to manage work orders, view relevant documents, and file reports and status updates remotely on a mobile device. With full source code and working examples, developers may customize this reference app for their own business processes and get a head start on their development efforts. A key feature of the kiteworks SDKs is a secure mobile container that ensures the protection of sensitive and critical content on mobile devices.
