Seregon simplifies and greatly reduces the time and cost of building and deploying mobile enterprise applications across multiple platforms
OTTAWA and SAN FRANCISCO – MobilityWire® – October 6, 2010
Seregon Solutions Inc., a provider of Mobile Enterprise Application Platform software, today announced the widespread availability of DragonRAD™, a cross-platform mobile development tool that accelerates mobile application development and simplifies integration with back-office systems to deliver enterprise applications across any BlackBerry®, Android, or Windows Mobile™ device.
DragonRAD 4.0 is an evolution of SeregonMAP that allows enterprise application developers to connect to any database or Web service, build mobile applications quickly and easily in a visual drag and drop development environment, and deploy them to a wide array of mobile devices and operating systems. With DragonRAD, enterprise application developers build complex mobile applications in a fraction of the time of traditional development, and deploy them — royalty free — to an unlimited number of users.
CellTrak Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of integrated mobile solutions for home healthcare, turned to Seregon when a time-constrained opportunity arose to develop a complex application for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices. “CellTrak has more than 10,000 users of our industry leading mobile Home Heathcare solution”, said Steve Wegner, chief technology officer at CellTrak. “Using Seregon’s Mobile Application Platform (now called DragonRAD), we were able to rapidly create a prototype, and iteratively incorporate customer feedback until the application was complete. The Seregon Platform truly allows you to decrease cost, development time and risk in mobilizing enterprise applications.”
DragonRAD’s support for BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile devices allows organizations to build and deliver their enterprise applications on multiple platforms with no added cost or effort, currently one of the largest obstacles preventing businesses from going mobile.
A Frost & Sullivan survey of 300 North American companies revealed that issues surrounding upfront costs continue to be cited as the key barrier to adoption for mobile enterprise applications. The cost to build custom mobile applications that integrate with current back-office systems has traditionally been unaffordable for most companies. DragonRAD helps to reduce this upfront cost with its rapid application development environment, ease of integration and synchronization of backend systems, and cross-platform support. Other features of the DragonRAD mobile development platform include:
- Cross-platform support for BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile devices
- Easy-to-use drag and drop design environment
- Seamless integration with all SQL databases and Web Services (using custom data connectors)
- Native rapid application development
- One-button publish for over-the-air application delivery
- Powerful data triggers, event handlers, and push notification
DragonRAD is available as a free download from http://www.dragonrad.com/download. The Free version is fully featured and allows the development and testing of an unlimited number of applications but is limited to deployment to only two users. The unrestricted Enterprise version is available on an annual subscription at $4,900 per developer and allows the development of an unlimited number of applications and deployment to an unlimited number of users. More pricing information can be found at http://www.dragonrad.com/pricing.
Seregon is exhibiting at CTIA Enterprise & Applications™ being held in San Francisco October 5 to 8, and will be at booth #146.
