Mobile Internet Leader Extends Proven Enterprise Solutions With Mobile Service Offering For Corporations and ISVs

AvantGo, Inc., the business-to-business mobile Internet company, today announced that it is extending its proven AvantGo Enterprise(TM) solutions with the addition of AvantGo Enterprise Online(TM). The first hosted, Internet-based service for mobilizing applications and content, AvantGo Enterprise Online enables corporations and independent software vendors (ISVs) to quickly and easily deliver full-featured enterprise applications and content to handheld devices and Internet-enabled phones. The company also announced today that UpShot.com, My Docs Online! and LiveConsultant.com will be deploying their product offerings on AvantGo Enterprise Online.

AvantGo Enterprise Online is based on proven AvantGo Enterprise server technology deployed by Global 1000 corporations, including McKessonHBOC, Catholic Healthcare West and BG Group plc.

A subscription-based service, AvantGo Enterprise Online meets the needs of a variety of organizations, including ISVs, functional organizations or departments within corporations, application service providers (ASPs) and content providers interested in delivering business-to-business applications and content to mobile devices.
