Leading Social Collaboration Software App from Deltek Provides Faster, Simpler and Better Solution for Working and Interacting Via Mobile Devices
HERNDON, Virginia – Deltek today announced the launch of Kona Mobile, a new iOS and Android application for its leading social collaboration platform. The free Kona Mobile app provides a faster, simpler and better solution for working collaboratively—whether in the office, at home or on the road. Kona was developed to ease the frustrations people face using apps, email, social business and other social networking sites when trying to get purposeful things accomplished together.
Kona Mobile is available for free in the Apple App Store (for iPhones and iPads) at: https://itunes.apple.com/app/kona-mobile/id532571760?mt=8 and via Google Play (for Android devices) at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.deltek.konamobile&hl=en.
“As more people work in a variety of capacities in different settings and on-the-go, and as the debate continues about telecommuting, Kona Mobile has been developed from the ground up to provide powerful collaborative capabilities via mobile devices,” said Scott DeFusco, Deltek’s Vice President of Product Strategy and Management for Kona. “Kona Mobile is the most robust collaboration and productivity platform available for iOS and Android, bridging the gap between traditional and distributed workforces.”
Kona Mobile uniquely delivers organization and context to a group’s conversations, collaborative tasks, shared calendars and files across leading mobile devices. Information and content used on Kona Mobile is stored locally, therefore the app only retrieves what has changed on a collaborated document or calendar when the device comes out of sleep mode.
“Kona has become one of my company’s most valuable applications for managing multi-million dollar processes and solutions with countless partners on a daily basis—whether we’re at our desks or on-the-go,” said Joshua Larson, Marketing & Proposal Manager at Mele Associates—a company providing national security, energy research, engineering/environmental management, information systems and technology solutions for business and government. “As someone that often spends 12 hours a day at the office, Kona is very beneficial across my life. With the Kona Mobile application, I can keep track of work-related tasks and communications while I’m at home and out doing personal activities.”
Completely re-architected using the hybrid model that leverages the latest technologies and techniques – including both native and HTML5 infrastructures and protocols for cross-platform efficiency and optimization, the new Kona Mobile experience is designed to offer the same robust benefits as Kona.com including:
· Group conversations for each Kona space, providing group discussions and file sharing in the context of the tasks, calendar events and purpose(s) of the group.
· Privacy, since all of the information in Kona is shared only with those you’ve invited into groups.
· The My Kona view that delivers a personalized dashboard of the conversations, calendar events and tasks for each user across their spaces.
· Streamlined collaboration allowing any group to privately connect, organize, discuss and get things done together.
Kona is social and productive, with a purpose. Whether using it individually, with colleagues, organizational teams or family members, Kona fits into people’s lives and keeps all of the important things centralized in one place. With the Kona Mobile app, it’s everywhere individuals and groups need to be to get things done together—on smart phones, in email, at work or at home.
