SEATTLE, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, announced today the launch of Locality, innovative software that gives organizations the insight and visibility needed to optimize their cellular data deployments.
The operations of many organizations rely heavily on public cellular data networks. Companies make large investments in devices, monthly service plans and application development to connect mobile field workers to mission critical applications over these networks. However, despite their critical role, there are no tools available to monitor and manage the performance of these cellular deployments.
Recognizing the need for a product that provides organizations with the visibility they are accustomed to when analyzing the performance of their internal wide area network, NetMotion Wireless developed Locality. By gathering performance and location data directly from mobile devices, Locality provides a continuously updated and customized view of a cellular deployment.
The police department in Mesa, Arizona is one of the first organizations to deploy Locality. The business intelligence gathered from Locality has enabled the department to improve the effectiveness of their officers by addressing connectivity issues.
"The important opportunity for us was having empirical coverage data," said Doug Scroggins, IT Architect for Mesa Police Department. "The reason why someone can't connect varies, and Locality can help us determine the causes of connectivity issues. We are confident the visibility gained from Locality has enabled us to improve worker productivity and decrease costs."
"We have over 500,000 users of our mobile VPN software today, most of whom are also very reliant on cellular networks for connectivity," said Bob Hunsberger, President and CEO of NetMotion Wireless. "Customers told us about the need for tools to solve performance and connectivity issues, monitor usage and keep track of cellular adapters. Up until now they have had to rely on cellular bills, internal spreadsheets and anecdotal information from end-users, which is why we created Locality."
NetMotion Wireless develops software to manage and secure wireless data deployments for organizations with mobile field workers. Our products address the unique challenges introduced by the use of wireless, enabling our customers to maximize their return on investment in workforce automation. More than 2,000 of the world's most respected organizations across multiple industries including utilities, healthcare, telecommunications, public safety, government, insurance, manufacturing, and many others use our products. Founded in 2001, the company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
