Mobile Business Market Leaders Join to Form AirVersent

AirVersent, a global provider of configurable mobile enterprise solutions for the logistics and field service workforce, has announced its formal launch of operations. Backed by New Venture Partners, an investment firm with more than $700 million under management, AirVersent is the result of the successful acquisition and merger of the mobile supply chain logistics division of US-based TeleCommunication Systems and UK-based Telepartner, a provider of mobile field service solutions.

AirVersent focuses on solutions that empower the mobile worker specifically in supply chain logistics, proof-of-delivery and field service. The company has over a decade of experience delivering highly successful mobile workforce solutions to a wide range of customers including large enterprises such as British Telecom, HP, Cardinal Health and Staples. In addition to its proven customer base the company has partnerships with BT and Motorola/Symbol as well as with tier-one cellular carriers such as AT&T, Vodafone and Orange.

AirVersent offers two highly configurable product lines to meet specific customer requirements without having to build expensive customised solutions:
- 20/20 Delivery utilises barcode scanning, wireless messaging, electronic signature capture, configurable forms, and GPS to assist enterprises in managing their pickup/delivery and logistics functions. This solution includes patent pending technology that enables customers to create forms in real time directly on a mobile device.
- ServiceNet automates the data collection and management of field service operations. Incorporating Click & Go technology organisations can easily configure and deploy their own system to provide a sophisticated field application on the mobile worker's handheld device, as well as real-time workflow views and seamless data exchange into the enterprise. ServiceNet works over any wireless carrier network enabling the receipt of job instructions, work schedules including reactive work or real-time updates. An optional scheduling and resource management module automates dispatch with the facility for customer appointment booking.

Both solutions are available either as a managed Software as a Service application or as a licensed software product for installation on a customer's premises. Modern web based software architecture means ease of integration and deployment.
