Mobilize Offers Enterprise App to Lexis-Nexis

Wireless solution provider Mobilize Inc. was tabbed Tuesday to deploy its Mobilize Web application for the Corporate and Federal Markets organization of information sharing firm Lexis-Nexis Group.

Terms of the deal were not made public.

Lexis-Nexis Corporate and Federal Markets will use portable intranet Mobilize Web, which enables a company's mobile workers and partners to access corporate information systems from outside the office, to consolidate and organize the company's sales support materials and provide its mobile sales representatives with almost unlimited access.

As a result, content updates and deletions will automatically download to a sales representative's mobile device and be catalogued without requiring their intervention. Workers will then be able to present customers with accurate information, reducing the need for repeat sales calls.

Mobilize Chief Executive Officer Bob Pinna said his firm's portable intranet can be useful in helping a company's marketing department centrally manage the content on each mobile worker's device, giving them better message control and speeding delivery of new materials to the field.

One of Mobilize's mobile enterprise applications that are designed to work on all networks and mobile devices, Mobilize Web can be implemented in less than 60 days.

The Lexis-Nexis Group, which unites brands, technologies and information for customers in the legal, corporate, government and education markets, is a member of the Reed Elsevier plc publishing company.
