Real-Time Mobile Search from Your Blackberry

Simplexo Locate for Blackberry provides secure, real-time access to documents, structured data and messages – all from a single click

A new way to search for information via your Blackberry is being launched by UK specialist federated search company, Simplexo. The solution – Simplexo Locate – enables Blackberry users to concurrently search a wide range of information sources from their Blackberry Smartphone in a safe and secure way.

The new solution is currently being tested by a range of corporate and governmental organisations, and will initially be sold through the channel via Proband, a major supplier of IT products and solutions. Simplexo Locate for Blackberry follows on from the launch earlier this year of a version for Windows Mobile 6.5 Smartphones.

Searching more than one information source can be time-consuming, especially when you’re on the move. Results have to be manually collected, compared, and de-duplicated before full and accurate findings are available. Now, Simplexo Locate for Blackberry does the work for you.

Simplexo Locate can simultaneously search local content stores, selected web services, social networking sites and corporate repositories with a single click. It delivers a single results list without the need to launch multiple applications – providing a consolidated view of all information, including contacts, email, documents and web content. What’s more, Simplexo Locate does not need expensive customisation or additional computing resources, because connections are established directly to systems such as Microsoft SharePoint without compromising security.

Simon Bain, Simplexo, stated: “Now, even when you’re out of the office you can still search all your data. With instant access to enterprise-wide information, you can make fast decisions with confidence and deliver impeccable service levels to your customers.”

“Furthermore, Simplexo Locate will not compromise corporate security policies,” he added. “This is the only mobile search application available today that does not rely on a Web interface. It is a dedicated application, which means that once the search is complete, information is scrubbed from the memory of the device so there is no chance of data theft if that device is lost or stolen.”

In common with the company’s other federated search tools, Simplexo Locate eliminates individual searches on multiple data sources. It delivers the up-to-date information you need, on demand and in real time, without presenting unwanted results that waste valuable time when you’re a on the road.
