Kryos Velocity Announces New Product Dedicated to Creating Lotus Domino Apps for Blackberry Smartphones

Velocity Designer for Lotus® Domino® Allows You to Create Out-Of-The-Box Enterprise Applications for Blackberry Smartphones

ORLANDO, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2010) - Today at WES 2010, Kryos Systems Ltd. announced the beta launch of Velocity Designer for Lotus® Domino®. This innovative new software helps bridge the gap between Lotus Domino data and the growing need for enterprise mobile applications. With no programming background necessary, Lotus Domino administrators can extend access to Lotus Domino databases into the hands of remote staff. The Velocity Designer for Lotus Domino software can quickly and easily build BlackBerry® smartphone applications using simple menus, forms, and templates that leverage features of the BlackBerry platform.

"Building off our Velocity Mobile Platform technology and 15 years of Lotus Domino application development experience, this new product makes building mobile apps a breeze," says Rick Hugie, Chief Technology Officer. "Enterprise applications for BlackBerry smartphones can be developed in a matter of days, right from within Lotus Notes, with Velocity guiding you through each step of the process."

The benefit to the enterprise market is significant. Corporations can easily create remote access to back-office data and programs that run on the Lotus Domino platform. Traditionally it would require a team of specialized programmers significant time and money to accomplish the task. Velocity Designer for Lotus Domino handles the translation between the back-office systems and a wide variety of BlackBerry smartphones and allows businesses to connect the two with the skills of in-house Lotus personnel.

"The market for enterprise applications for BlackBerry smartphones is significant," says Trevor Nimegeers, President & CEO. "Comscore reported a +21% growth in U.S. smartphone ownership in February 2010, with BlackBerry smartphones being the dominant player with 42.1% share of the U.S. smartphone platform market*. Smartphones are becoming mainstream and we're making it easier for corporations to extend their existing technology investment in smartphones." 

Velocity for Lotus Domino will be launching to the marketplace in summer 2010, at the completion of beta testing. For more information or to participate in the beta testing, visit the Kryos Velocity booth at WES 2010 (booth #606), email sales@kryos.com, or phone 1-(866) 968-4826.
