On January 30th, two "COOL" Blackberry 10 devices will be launched by Research In Motion (NASDAQ: RIMM) in multiple countries. The first two Blackberry 10 smartphones will be launched immediately, with six more to follow next year. Groveware Technologies (OTC: GROV), a Verizon Wireless Business Solutions Partner and a developer of mobile process automation apps, has already prepared their app, MobiTask, for the Blackberry 10.
As of January 21, 2013, the MobiTask app is available for the BB10 inside of the Blackberry App World. This gives 79 million Blackberry users worldwide access to the app - and 27 million of these users represent the Business and Government sectors. This provides a massive opportunity for Groveware to provide mobile solutions in the areas of collecting field data as well as mobile ERP.
While there are many businesses and governments who have made the switch to Apple or Android, Blackberry still maintains a large number of corporate clients who are security conscience. "People choose Groveware because of the security that we can offer," comments Hrair Achkarian, Groveware's CEO. The company uses a middleware in conjunction with MobiTask that ensures all data is encrypted before it is sent off of the mobile device.
Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) has announced plans to launch the BB10. As a Verizon Wireless Business solutions partner, this will allow millions of clients to find out what Groveware is capable of in terms of offering mobile business solutions within the BB10.
