BroadVision Launches Clearvale for Android
New app keeps mobile users connected across widespread areas and work shifts
NEW YORK CITY & REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. -- June 12, 2012 - BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq: BVSN), a global leader in social business solutions, today announced at the info360 Conference & Expo that it has expanded its portfolio of mobile applications to include Clearvale for Android. The new app gives Android users access to the Clearvale™ enterprise social networking solution on their handsets and tablets for the first time.
Using social tools and techniques, Clearvale helps businesses around the globe effectively transform the way they work by providing collaborative workspaces in the network where employees, customers, and partners can do their everyday work including, resolving a customer issue, selling and marketing products, and employee recruitment. Clearvale for Android is a native app that connects users across geographic regions, time zones, and work shifts for improved business agility and productivity. This app is displayed in real time and loaded with communication and collaboration capabilities, which enables work to be done anywhere, anytime and by anyone.
According to a recent IDC forecast*, the worldwide mobile worker population will increase from just over 1 billion in 2010 to more than 1.3 billion by 2015, representing 37.2 percent of the total workforce. To support this growing mobile population, the functionality of Clearvale includes the ability to:
- Empower remote and mobile employees by providing the freedom to communicate and innovate at their most convenient times in a safe, controlled manner regardless of time zones, location, or device
- Improve customer service by making it easier for sales teams to collaborate or find information on-the-go to shorten sales cycles
- Stay connected and up-to-date in the event of a disaster, even if company offices or infrastructure are impacted, by accessing data in the cloud and collaborating on it from a device so work can continue
"For a global organization such as HiSoft, a mobile workforce is quickly becoming a reality. We look forward to further strengthening our Clearvale network with a native app for Android. Having this app will help us not only provide greater workplace flexibility but improve productivity and responsiveness, so we can make business decisions faster," said Ke Xu, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at HiSoft Technology International Limited.
Clearvale for Android comes on the heels of the recently expanded features in Clearvale for iPhone/iPad, which gives users the same functionality that is now available on the Android. Clearvale for Android runs on handsets and tablets with Android 2.2 and above, and is available in English as well as Simplified and Traditional Chinese with Japanese soon to follow. The Clearvale for Android app can be downloaded for free in the Google Play store and the Clearvale for iPhone/iPad is available on iTunes.
"As organizations across the globe are increasingly embracing mobile workstyles and workshifting, many are turning towards enterprise social networks to keep these employees productive and engaged. Continuous access to the Clearvale network gives users the ability to close deals faster, respond to customers while offsite, or approve workflow tasks on their device rather than waiting to return to the corporate office," said Dr. Pehong Chen, Chairman, President, and CEO of BroadVision. "The Clearvale for Android app is our latest move to meet the growing demand for connecting the mobile workforce by providing a platform for improving the way real work gets done anytime, anywhere from any device."
