Australian mobile enterprise services provider Retriever Communications has expanded to the US, setting up a HQ in Sugar Land, Texas.

Retriever, was set up in 1997 before mobile ‘broke’ in the enterprise market, offering a solution for field service management point solutions.

The technology which has been developed by an Australian R&D team over the last twelve years was originally built around the acquired IP of Sydney-based ceMIS - Centre of Excellence in Mobile Information Systems, a subsidiary of Apple in 1997.

The mobile application platform now runs on any device running the iOS, Android or Windows Mobile operating systems, including tablets, PDAs and smartphones.

Company founder and CEO Mary Brittain-White said Retriever was entering the US market during “a new era in mobile collaboration, when true mobile warriors can do more than ever before, but also demand better flexibility and workflow."

Retriever is also aiming to step in to seize the market gap left by Microsoft’s mobile enterprise exit, servicing businesses that currently use applications built on Microsoft, which now have no future.

"Our over 12 years' experience with the mobile cloud make us a fit for the US, which is terrific at innovating itself out of a recession. Heavily focused on iOS and Android, the US has an aggressive lead in adopting cloud technologies. Through our expansion, we bring our mission to improve field productivity to the US market, changing the way companies think about customer service."

Retriever also has local offices in Sydney, Milan and Houston, and supports deployments in over 21 countries.
