HansaWorld promoted the message of how Value Added Resellers can create a reliable, easy-to-deliver, revenue stream from the concept of Bring Your Own Device.

Stephen Jay, Regional Manager for North America for HansaWorld, outlined in two sessions at VARTech the key technological differences of the Enterprise by HansaWorld Integrated Business Platform, that leave HansaWorld as the only mainstream vendor offering a full suite of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) on iOS, Android and Windows 8 tablets and smartphones.

"The irrepressible rise of tablets and other smart devices has taken the IT industry by surprise, leaving vendors desperately scrambling to deliver their solutions on new platforms" commented Jay. "Those with browser technologies will take time to adapt their desktop interfaces for a style of use that is different on each device, and in many cases are struggling to achieve acceptable performance and security levels. The majority of existing vendors are unable to port their code onto new platforms, and so are starting the huge process of rewriting their applications from scratch on each device – by creating specialized apps usually on a single platform, with limited role-based functionality for the foreseeable future," he continued.

"HansaWorld by contrast has an architecture that can be readily ported onto other platforms, alongside the small footprint necessary to fit onto mobile devices and network traffic optimized for cellphone networks to permit true, real-time usage while outside the office," Jay went on.

The result is that HansaWorld offers VARS a real solution to the BYOD hype. Tablet users have access to almost all of Enterprise by HansaWorld's two million lines of code, for a wide range of industries as varied as retail (POS for luxury goods, apparel, jewellery through to food and beverage and convenience stores), professional services (field service and installation staff, doctors, accountants, or anyone else charging time and materials), manufacturing and distribution (including full warehouse management support), and mobile sales (from vans through field sales reps).

HansaWorld provides an award-winning Integrated Business Platform covering Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning and Accounts together with a wide selection of industry-specific solutions, to more than 77,000 clients in 120 countries around the world. The solutions are available in 29 languages, run on all major platforms, and support mobile use via tablets, smartphones and laptops. HansaWorld is represented in many of the countries in Europe, Latin America, North America, Africa, Australia, Asia and the Middle East.
