Built on open-source smartphone app framework for building native applications
RhoLogic, a division of Logic Appeal, an integrator of SugarCRM and SAP BusinessOne CRM software, has launched their SugarCRM smartphone application that was built using Rhodes, an open-source smartphone app framework for building native applications for devices such as iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian.
The company said that SugarCRM application allows mobile workers to access, input and edit CRM data on their smartphone. It can be integrated into existing enterprise offerings allowing business users to view and interact with product and customer information. Business users on the go can now access the same CRM information that they use from their desktop, on their smartphone.
According to RhoLogic, the new app allows mobile workers to access CRM data via their smartphone even when offline. The metadata framework supports applications with changing underlying schema, facilitating mobile CRM application to utilise all of the information exposed by the backend system, even when that data is changing. Any changes made to the CRM record structure on the desktop are reflected in the UI of the mobile app without changing the app itself.
In addition, Mobile SugarCRM features bi-directional information updates and allows remote synchronisation with backend enterprise CRM applications. It is available on iPhone and iPad with Android and Blackberry in Q2 2010 and Windows Mobile in Q3 2010.
