Mastek Delivers iPhone and Blackberry Apps

The technology has been designed with CEOs in mind

Mastek, the global provider of vertically focused enterprise technology and platforms, has announced the completion of its iPhone and Blackberry Mission Leadership® app project on behalf of global business execution consultancy McKinney Rogers. Mastek had been tasked with delivering iPhone and Blackberry apps as well as Offline apps with synchronisation specifically designed to assist senior executives and enhance business intelligence across the organisation especially while they are in transit (i.e. in-flight) and on location where online connectivity may not be possible.

The technology has been designed with CEOs in mind, allowing board members and senior executives to drill down into minute detail to all aspects of their business critical communication and information sharing channels, across large global organisations. The apps are being extensively used by consultants and executives at McKinney Rogers, who are currently in the process of rolling out the apps to their client base.

Laurence Cook, Vice President, Telecommunications and Healthcare, Mastek comments: "Working with McKinney Rogers on this project has been a great experience for us. It has allowed Mastek to develop capabilities in the area of mobile technology, along with demonstrating again that it can deliver software using latest technologies in an agile manner. It is clear that this method of business intelligence is becoming more and more important to large global companies as we see an increasingly nomadic approach to business and a proliferation of different types of communication tools and here at Mastek we are at the forefront of this kind of development."

Russ Thornton, CTO, McKinney Rogers says: "Mastek was selected to deliver the project due to its flexible, cost-efficient and agile approach, as well as its cutting edge app capabilities. The project has proven to be very successful and we have been able to quickly pass the solution on to some of our market leading, global clients. This is testament to the value of the solution and its relevance to the global market as well as the speed of delivery from Mastek. We are delighted with the outcome."
