ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), the leading provider of automated mobile workforce management and optimization solutions for the service industry, today announced that six of its enterprise-level business apps are now SAP-certified mobile apps.

A member of the SAP Mobile Apps partner program, ClickSoftware developed these apps leveraging tools and resources from SAP, including the SAP Mobile Platform for application development.

The program offers a comprehensive set of enablement tools, access to required developer licenses, and support to help partners quickly and efficiently develop, market, and sell mobile apps via the SAP Store that meet the needs of customers.
Also available within the program is SAP certification for mobile apps, which signals to customers the quality of the packaged mobile app from the device to the back-end-integration level. The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that the following six apps from ClickSoftware are SAP-certified mobile apps: Action Items view, Delay Assignment Button, Field Service Package, Google Map View, Related Assignments and Safety Procedure.
