Embedded Java ME database lends SD card support on BlackBerry mobile devices
How does a mobile/embedded software package gain efficient data management and SD card support for its mobile product targeting Java ME-based BlackBerry devices?
Maximizer Software, a CRM vendor in British Columbia, Canada, announced a new relationship with database developer McObject to achieve that goal.
Maximizer will integrate McObject's Perst™ Lite open source, object-oriented embedded database into its mobile CRM software for BlackBerry devices. Perst Lite, through its support for Sun's JSR 75 specification, will enable CRM data to be stored on flash memory-based Secure Digital (SD) cards to extend storage capacity while on the road – making it possible to access more customer information in real-time, instead of relying on networks to download new data to the device.
Users will be able to access more records locally in order to retrieve and update leads, opportunities and customer service cases, customer notes and schedules, in order to stay productive and reduce downtime in the field.
“Accessing up-to-date information on customers is critical to sales executives and other professionals in the field. Increasingly, they require this capability from their BlackBerry smartphones rather than laptops,” said Will Anderson, executive vice president of technology, Maximizer Software. “Maximizer Software is pleased to partner with McObject to improve mobile professionals ability to prospect, close sales and service customers – activities that continue to make Maximizer CRM for BlackBerry a clear choice for field staff and business travelers.”
“We are pleased to be a part of extending Maximizer Softwares capabilities for on-the-go professionals that rely on CRM information on a BlackBerry smartphone,” McObject Chief Operating Officer Chris Mureen said. “Our new partnership with Maximizer is critical in helping companies and their employees improve business productivity.”
The new enhancement will be available in MaxMobile for BlackBerry in summer 2008.
