BERLIN, GERMANY: Mobile business expert Cortado has released a new version of their Cortado Corporate Server 4.0 solution. The second edition supports BlackBerry smartphones and iPhones on a cross-platform basis. Companies with mixed environments can now easily integrate the devices when using Cortado. With Cortado’s Virtual Desktop Processes technology, devices can be seamlessly integrated into corporate IT.
Many smartphone solution developers and providers try to bring the desktop to the smartphone. However, they fail to adequately display the desktop on small smartphone screens, making the view uncomfortable, leading to user rejection. Cortado has taken a completely different approach with the Virtual Desktop Processes technology in the Cortado Corporate Server enterprise solution.
The new version, which is now available for iPhones, virtualizes not the desktop, but the features that are actually necessary for work. Cortado Corporate Server enables smartphones to access the corporate network and view files as well as manage, print, fax, scan, copy and convert them to PDF. Additionally, database queries can be made. All features can be configured to the device and its display. The required processes run in the background on the Cortado Corporate Server.
“Corporate employees should have access to all desired features on the device of their choice. Platform-independence and seamless integration into corporate IT are important keys for the success and acceptance of our solution,” states Thorsten Hesse, Innovative Products Manager at ThinPrint-Cortado.
Cortado will support the Android operating system, running Google Nexus One, during 2010.
