Spiceworks Mobile HD Puts IT Management and a Social Network of More Than 2 Million in the Hands of IT Pros

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Spiceworks™, Inc., the world's largest social network for IT professionals, today announced the release of Spiceworks Mobile HD for Apple iPad and Google Android-based tablet devices. The Spiceworks mobile application will help more than 2 million Spiceworks users connect with peers, run their help desk, and manage IT networks directly from their tablet device. The mobile app is designed to utilize tablets' larger screens and is available for free at http://www.spiceworks.com/downloads.

"I currently manage the IT networks for two separate schools," said Antony Rowell, IT manager, Tor View School. "I am constantly away from my desk and on the go, helping troubleshoot problems and fixing network issues. The Spiceworks iPad app allows me to manage my environment and help desk in real time. I can use Spiceworks wherever and whenever I need it which helps me do my job more efficiently."

More than 100,000 IT pros have already downloaded Spiceworks mobile applications for their Apple iPhone and Android-based smart phones. Key features of the new Spiceworks tablet application include:

  • Help Desk - allows IT pros to open, access, edit and manage Spiceworks help desk tickets from their iPad, iPhone or any Android smart phone or tablet.
  • Inventory & Monitoring - enables users to view the status of their servers, software applications and cloud services. As a result, IT professionals on the go can stay informed about the health of important network services and devices.
  • People View - allows IT professionals to monitor, provision and care for networked technology devices, systems and cloud services based on the people who use them within the organization. It also provides access to contact and profile information for each employee.
  • Community of IT Pros - gives users a way to view posts, answer questions, ask for help, and comment on topics that spark their interests from the Spiceworks community of more than 2 million IT pros -- all from their tablet.

"IT professionals spend much of the day away from their desks fixing and deploying network equipment or helping employees troubleshoot problems," said Francis Sullivan, co-founder and CTO of Spiceworks. "Helping our users manage IT products and services while mobile is incredibly important. Our new mobile app for tablets helps by allowing users to tap into the power of Spiceworks whenever and wherever they need it."
