OBS Joins H3 Mobile Entree Alliance Program for SharePoint
H3 Solutions, creator of Mobile Entree for Microsoft SharePoint, has welcomed OBS into its Mobile Entree Alliance Program. OBS is an Australia-based SharePoint specialist, and adding OBS to its alliance program will allow H3 to extend Mobile Entree to SharePoint users throughout Australia for the first time.
H3’s Mobile Entree allows businesses to access tools and/or information from SharePoint to any smartphone or tablet, anywhere in the world. The goal of the solution is to help customers avoid bottlenecks and delays in their day-to-day workflow, and to help optimize companies’ investments in their SharePoint servers.
The partnership looks to be a big win for both H3 Solutions and OBS. For H3, the benefit is fairly obvious: The company is now able to sell its signature solution to an entirely new market region. Plus, the partnership adds significant value to OBS, which is widely considered one of Australia’s most reputable IT service providers. OBS has been in business for 11 years and serves more than 300 Australian government, private and public sector organizations, including about 5 percent of the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) 200. OBS’s main focus is helping its customers improve their business efficiency using different Microsoft technologies, including SharePoint. So offering H3’s Mobile Entree as a way to access SharePoint tools and info will certainly bode well for OBS during future meetings with potential customers.
Keep in mind that H3 Solutions isn’t the only player in this game — Colligo Networks also has developed a series of Microsoft SharePoint document services solutions. We’ll see if Colligo has any response to the H3 news.
