CLEVELAND, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Within3, the leading provider of online communities for health professionals, announced the release of mobile applications for both the Blackberry and iPhone. A surge of customer requests fueled the need for a handheld solution that integrated with the communities on the Within3 platform.
"It became apparent the health professionals we serve were looking for alternative channels to access the activity and discussions occurring within their communities, in a format most convenient in their daily lives," said Lance Hill, CEO, Within3. "The result is a highly intuitive mobile application set that will provide registered members of participating Within3 communities, secure and instant interactions."
Within3 is working with early customers to introduce these mobile applications into their online communities.
The User Experience Team at Within3 spent much of 2009 researching, analyzing and testing the most intuitive means to foster communication and enable collaboration on a handheld device.
