May 1, 2011 - Systrends Enters Mobile Development

<DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Apps have revolutionized the mobile lifestyle. Apps allow users to customize their mobile devices to their specific needs and wants.<BR></SPAN></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">More than ever, businesses want to be connected to email, contacts, reports and documents. In fact, businesses rely on Smartphone technology for roughly 80 percent of what they need for work.<BR></SPAN></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Mobility is why Systrends decided to develop the eTariff iPad app. Viewing tariffs is common practice on FERC.gov website but what about those on the go? It is not so easy to view the government website on a mobile phone.&nbsp; The eTariff app connects to eTariff databases and allows users to view any public tariff available.<BR></SPAN></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">The application is based on the eTariffWeb application but is constructed just for the iPad. It also utilizes Systrends T<SUP>2</SUP> and eTariff products to send tariff documents to the app. It will store selected companies and provide automatic updates when a new tariff is available.<BR></SPAN></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">Systrends realizes that not everyone has Apple iPads, iPods or iPhones, so plans are in the works for future app development with other mobile devices. Apple is just the first step into the mobile world for Systrends.<BR></SPAN></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: small"><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">A prototype has been completed for the eTariff iPad app. A demonstration of the app was conducted during the User Conference. Systrends is planning to have the application available by the end of the summer. If your company is interested in purchasing the app, please contact Systrends Support.<BR></SPAN></SPAN>&nbsp;</DIV>
