Onvelop Unified Collaboration and Communication Platform for Mobile Devices to Debut at MWC 2013

Alliances With Microsoft and Samsung Allow Onvelop to Provide Secure Mobile Access to SharePoint, Lync, Office 365 and More via Android, iOS and Windows 8 Phones and Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- AgreeYa Mobility, a mobile-engineering product and service firm headquartered in Mountain View, California, will debut Onvelop, a unified collaboration and communication platform, this month with live demonstrations at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28. Samsung and Vodafone booths will showcase the platform, and Onvelop will host private meetings at FIRA CONGRESS, offering live demonstrations of the tablet and smartphone versions and showcasing the Web portal that allows enterprise control of device access.

Launched this January, Onvelop is a first-of-its-kind intuitive, unified collaboration and communication platform that utilizes licensed Microsoft protocols to provide secure access to enterprise server software such as SharePoint, Lync, Office 365 and more from smartphones and tablets across multiple operating systems like iOS, Android and Windows 8. Microsoft licensing and interoperability agreements, as well as important relationships with OEM partner Samsung and operator partner Vodafone, are vital to Onvelop's seamless functionality and have propelled its successful launch. The Samsung partnership provides Onvelop with incredible initial reach while offering Samsung a ready extension into the enterprise-mobility market; and the agreement with Vodafone allows the partner to resell Onvelop to its millions of customers worldwide.

Onvelop provides users with access to enterprise software via Samsung Android tablets and smartphones as well as iOS devices while preserving document security and company data-access policies and without requiring additional MDM software. The platform's patented user experience provides unprecedented productivity and flexibility for BYOD users and complete security and control for the enterprises that implement it.

"Today's companies spend exorbitant amounts of time, money and resources on the software and infrastructure that help employees work and collaborate efficiently and effectively," says Krish Kupathil, CEO of AgreeYa Mobility. "But until now, those employees were handcuffed to computers and unable to access those tools on their mobile devices. Thanks in part to monumental agreements with Microsoft and Samsung, we're able to provide that access while maintaining the high level of data security that companies require -- even on employees' personal mobile devices."

Onvelop brings enterprise mobility and BYOD to business consumers by providing a platform that integrates real-time enterprise updates via feeds for activities, announcements and events from Office 365, SharePoint and Team Sites on the mobile device. Users enjoy one-stop access to the business tools they need to review documents, create events and announcements, chat, call via Lync/OCS, have a SharePoint document review meeting online via chat or call conferencing, check out and update documents from SharePoint, and check them back in to SharePoint so that updates become available to other enterprise users in the same network -- all from the mobile device with a single sign-on. The platform is designed to protect data security and the access policies that are already in place.

Onvelop licenses are bundled with a Web-based admin dashboard that allows enterprise administrators to control data and license access and maintain company security protocols, permissions and standards. The same defense-grade security measures allow users to manage work and personal lives separately on a single device with enterprise-ready data isolation -- protecting personal data from company oversight. Onvelop 365 serves an Office 365 customer base, and Onvelop On-Premise works with on-premise servers. Onvelop supports Office 365 for education, allowing students and faculty to communicate and collaborate through mobile devices. Onvelop 365 supports Samsung Android tablets with Honeycomb and later, Samsung Android smartphones with Ice Cream Sandwich and later and iPads with 5.0.x and later. Onvelop On-Premise supports SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, RDP for XP, 2008 R2 server, Office 365, OCS 2007 and Lync 2010.

Android smartphone and tablet users can download a free trial version of Onvelop from Google Play. It's also available for purchase at Google Play, Appstore and through reselling partner Vodafone.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
