Retriever Communications Extends Enterprise Offering With Configurable Mobile Application Suite

Platform Combines the Rich Functional Complexity of an Industry-Specific Solution With the Benefits of a SaaS Offering to Configure Complex Apps in a Timely Manner

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) - Retriever Communications, a global provider of industrial mobile workforce automation, today announced its Barking suite, a new suite of industry-specific applications aimed at water utility companies, caregivers, sales teams and maintenance and repair workers. Unlike other point solutions on the market, Retriever's Barking applications are built on Retriever's Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), making the applications future proofed from next-gen mobile operating systems, while delivering the end user buy-in of a native app.

Applications within the Barking Suite can be deployed within weeks because they are highly configurable and require no code to adapt to the customer's specific workflow. Customers have access to robust feature sets including workforce scheduling, job-site history and location-based capabilities.

The Barking suite targets businesses reliant on mobile operations including:

  • Barking for Water - Aimed at water utilities with sub contractor management challenges
  • Barking for Carers - Built for social workers delivering home services to customers
  • Barking for Sales - Targeted to improve sales rep productivity
  • Barking for Service - Aimed at asset maintenance and repair technicians

The applications lead field workers through a natural workflow that is faster and more secure than paperwork.

"All too often enterprise mobility solutions are disappointing for the users," said Mary Brittain-White, CEO of Retriever Communications. "We built the Barking applications with specific industry needs and mobile workers in mind. The applications are meant to combine the best of all worlds -- individual solutions that reflect a company's workflow, are quick to deploy and built on a comprehensive platform that guarantees operability regardless of constant change in the smartphone and tablet market."

Retriever applications are backed by contractual guarantees on ease and speed of in field recovery, continuity over future mobile operating systems and service level agreements for quality cloud delivery and integration services.
