Outtask to Offer Wireless Portal

agentGO, a leading mobile decision support solutions provider, and business services provider Outtask Inc. today (Jan 9) announced a multi-year agreement in which Outtask will sell Outtask Mobile, a customized version of agentGO's MobileDASH wireless enterprise portal. The estimated sales value of the contract is $5 million.

"Outtask's customers have come to depend on us to meet all of their business services needs," said Tom DePasquale, president and CEO of Outtask. "Working with agentGO, we can now provide all of our customers with a wireless option, providing them total access to the complete Outtask solution."

The new solution, called Outtask Mobile, incorporates agentGO's wireless functionality with Outtask's powerful dashboard solution making it accessible via any wireless device. With Outtask Mobile, an enterprise's mobile workforce will have access to their files, sales documents, contacts, email, expense reports and other mission-critical business data from their cell phones, pagers, PDAs and other wireless devices.

"We are honored to be the chosen wireless solution provider for Outtask," said Andres Carvallo, chairman and CEO of agentGO. "Outtask Mobile will now be available to Outtask's 85-plus Fortune 1000 and rapid-growth clients. Watching these enterprises increase the productivity of their mobile workforce and experience greater return on investment from their IT infrastructure will be the ultimate validation of our vision to become the mobile standard for a connected world."

Outtask says it chose the MobileDASH wireless enterprise portal to round out its "digital dashboard" solution, giving their clients the ability to access their corporate data from any internet enabled mobile device. Outtask's solution integrates and aggregates multiple back-end software packages such as Siebel, Great Plains, Exchange, JD Edwards, VIN.net Expense Reporting and others into one web-based front end.

"By combining MobileDASH wireless enterprise portal and Outtask's digital dashboard, agentGO and Outtask are delivering today on the future promise of real-time information and decision support for mobile workers," Carvallo said.
