Product Profile

AiNi™3.0 Mobile Cloud Platform

The AiNi™3.0 Mobile Cloud Platform provides a unified platform for various mobile device applications to share functions and access common, cloud-based data. It was co-developed by Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. ("Peak") of Montréal, Canada and LongKey Software Technology Ltd. ("LongKey") of Wuxi, China. The initial release of AiNi™3.0 comes packaged with LongKey's suite of standard mobile applications, which include automated device configuration, cloud-based contacts synchronization, calendar synchronization, e-mail, and HomeWave™ mobile security which itself includes remote device lock/unlock, remote device locating and BlueSync™ device pairing.

Benefits for Corporate Clients

  • Easier for IT departments to support corporate fleet of mobile devices
  • Automated device configuration - by accessing the company Server through AiNi™3.0, newly issued or upgraded devices are automatically configured for employees' e-mail, calendar and contact settings.
  • Access to cloud-based data by employees through their mobile devices facilitates internal communication and ensures that everyone is working with up-to-date information.
  • Built-in push technology allows for instant messaging broadcast of corporate memos to off-site employees.
  • If an employee's smartphone, tablet or laptop is lost or stolen, HomeWave™ mobile security makes it possible to locate the missing device and prevent third-party access to sensitive corporate information by locking it.

Benefits for End Users

  • Easy to use - access to key information such as contacts, calendar and email is available using the familiar look and feel of the native interface of the smart device.
  • AiNi™3.0 sync engine eliminates replication of data entry of contact and calendar information on mobile devices.
  • Improved integration and interaction between mobile applications and the smart device's core functions of contacts, calendar and e-mail.
  • Core functions can continue to be used in situations when the network becomes unavailable. AiNi™3.0 automatically reconnects the smart device to the server for data synchronization when the network becomes available.

Future Applications

The next release of the AiNi™ platform is expected to incorporate office automation and workflow management applications. In addition to these business management applications, and in collaboration with LongKey's banking and telecommunication partners, Peak and LongKey plan to leverage AiNi™ to introduce and package a variety of new categories of applications to their current mobile offering portfolio, from mobile banking and payment applications to social media and location-based utility applications.


AiNi™3.0 is currently available to select corporate clients of China Telecom in Jiangsu province as part of a pilot project. The Company's plans call for the platform to be made available to other distribution partners and deployed in multiple provinces in China by the end of the second quarter of 2012.
