KITCHENER, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IGLOO Software, an emerging leader in corporate social networking (CSN), today announced it has joined the BlackBerry® ISV Alliance Program. Becoming a BlackBerry alliance member aligns directly with IGLOO’s mobile strategy for delivering next generation corporate social networking functionality on handheld devices.
IGLOO plans to work closely with the mobile expertise and resources available within the BlackBerry ISV Alliance Program to develop an industry-leading corporate social networking application for all BlackBerry® smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM). With an ever increasing global mobile workforce, the ability to network and stay connected is a business imperative for improved productivity and business performance across the entire enterprise.
“Mobile devices represent the future of networking tools,” said Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO. “Business is 24/7. Business people are mobile. With communication devices tied to our hips, true mobility means more than simply having access to Web browsers; it’s about complete integration of corporate applications with mobile devices. Tapping into the resources at RIM, we will ensure that the necessary collaboration, networking and content management tools are in place to provide business with the agility, security and information management these firms need to succeed.”
IGLOO offers a fully integrated and secure corporate social networking suite for any size of business. Organizations use the IGLOO suite to improve employee productivity (Workplace CSN) and create deeper connections with their customers, partners and suppliers (Marketplace CSN). Built on a Web 2.0 platform, the IGLOO suite can scale to hundreds of thousands of users without incurring extensive implementation costs and can be up and running in a matter of days to support business groups and external partner and community collaboration.
