Egnyte has launched Blackberry and Android device interfaces that allow small business users secure access to all their business files via their Blackberry or Android-powered smartphones.
According to Egnyte, its file server enables Mac and PC business users to have online file storage, file sharing capabilities and automatic backup in one platform. The new interfaces leverages a mobile drive and allows mobile users to access their data stored through the Egnyte file server.
For existing Egnyte users who use a Blackberry or Android-powered smartphone, the new user interfaces allow businesses and professionals to easily navigate folder hierarchies and open and share files using their Blackberry or Android device keypad or touch screen, the company said.
Last year, Egnyte introduced an iPhone interface following the launch of the Apple iPhone 3G.
Marc Cantwell, CFO of Chinook Materials, said: “As a commercial building materials supplier and installer, our primary office location is at the construction site – everyone is mobile. Egnyte’s m Drive enables us to work efficiently, enabling our team to access our architectural drawings or construction contracts from mobile phones and discuss specifications with customers at the job site. We don’t have to lug around our laptops anymore and we’re more responsive to customers.”
