SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology, the leader in secure enterprise mobility solutions, today unveiled new updates to the company's flagship Good for Enterprise™ collaboration app that significantly improve the mobile worker experience and increase employee productivity, while maintaining a premium level of security. The enhanced features—including a refreshed user interface, tasks, calendar attachment viewing and photo share capabilities—are included in the latest version of Good for Enterprise™ for both iOS and Android and is available for download immediately.
According to Forrester Research, Inc. more of today's employees are going mobile to get work done at work, at home, and on the go. To help mobile employees stay productive, innovative and ahead of the competition, Good has enhanced its Good for Enterprise™ collaboration app to make it easier, requiring fewer taps to get work done where and when they want to. The new capabilities added to Good for Enterprise™ include:
- Bolder, Modern Look and Feel: Revamped user-interface with more vibrant colors and streamlined application navigation, making it easier to quickly move between email, calendar, contacts or the browser to efficiently multi-task and get work done faster.
- Secure Photo Snap and Share: Enables mobile workers to easily snap and securely share photos via email from whiteboard sessions or job sites without worrying about the image ending up in a cloud repository like iCloud or Dropbox. Because photos are stored in Good's secure container, IT has complete control over business photo storage while leaving personal photos untouched.
- Tasks and To Do's: Allows employees to organize and track tasks with real-time synchronization of Microsoft Outlook tasks or Lotus Notes To Do's. Create, view, and edit tasks. Assign priority, start date, reminder date and completion dates. It's every information worker's personal, electronic 'to do' list!
- Calendar Attachment Review: Increases worker productivity with the ability to open and view files attached within calendar invites, allowing mobile workers to review meeting materials on the fly.
- One-touch Conference Dial with Passcode: Permits mobile workers to spend less time switching between screens and safely dial into conference calls with the host or participant code included in just one tap, so they can remain productive while in transit, running to catch a train or through an airport.
"With today's always-on work environment, employees need mobile business apps designed to make getting work done easier," said Laura Fay, Vice President of Product Management, Good Technology. "With this release of Good for Enterprise, our customers can now offer their employees an elegant, powerful, and secure collaboration app that supports the way employees want to work using the devices they prefer. Whether it's joining conference calls with one-click, preparing for meetings on-the-go or securely snapping and sharing photos, Good for Enterprise enables employees to get work done – quickly and effectively."
