BASKING RIDGE, NJ, and LAS VEGAS, NV — Today, at the Verizon Developer Community Conference, the company revealed a new initiative set to launch later this year: the Verizon Wireless Private Applications Store for Business, a customizable, controllable, highly flexible enterprise-wide service that helps businesses realize the benefits of the mobile marketplace while driving cost efficiencies and enhancing productivity.
Enterprises face a myriad of technology challenges, including the increasing number of apps and diverse content available across various operating systems and devices. The Private Applications Store will enable Verizon Wireless enterprise customers to define and manage their own mobile application storefront so they can safely and securely distribute mobile apps – either created by the company or by a third-party – to their employees (B2E) and business partners (B2B) whether inside or outside the company’s firewall regardless of OS, devices or carrier.
“We are committed to giving our app developers a solid opportunity to extend their business value and brand to the enterprise, and increase the distribution of their apps in a secure environment,” said Janet Schijns, vice president, Business Solutions Group, Verizon Wireless. “It is our vision that Verizon Wireless’ Private Applications Store will be a go-to resource for the enterprise to manage and distribute a library of apps to streamline the workflow.”
Additional details on the Verizon Wireless Private Applications Store for Business will be available in the coming weeks.
