DecisionPoint Announces Grapevine™ Push-to-Talk Android Client
“Always On” Worldwide Push-to-Talk System Now Available on Android Mobile Devices
Foothill Ranch, CA — September 20, 2011 – DecisionPoint Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: DPSI), a leading provider of field-based workforce automation solutions, today announced the release of the much anticipated Grapevine Push-to-Talk client for the Android operating system. The new client will run on Android v1.6 and above, including Honeycomb, which runs on popular Android tablets. Grapevine is DecisionPoint’s cloud-based Push-to-Talk software and is an “always on” solution that enables instant worldwide voice communication over a range of mobile devices and PCs.
Grapevine delivers Push-to-Talk capability as data over the Internet across disparate carrier and Wi-Fi networks. It keeps workforces connected no matter how widely dispersed, enabling DecisionPoint’s customers to improve their communications while reducing costs.
Grapevine Push-to-Talk is a cloud-based, worry-free Software as a Service (SaaS) product. There are no servers to set up and maintain, just improved communications. Grapevine is ideal for immediate communications between dispatch and field workers, is highly scalable and supports communication among thousands of individuals and group participants. Key features include high-quality voice with audio alerts plus a private and secure network with voice encryption and sub-second transmission.
The new Grapevine Android client builds on the success of the Windows Mobile client that DecisionPoint announced in February 2011 and the Blackberry client that was announced in August 2011. The Android client is interoperable with the Windows Mobile and Blackberry clients. This fulfills the needs of customers requiring instant communications between field workers equipped with rugged Windows Mobile devices and managers with consumer devices.
“Including an Android client in the Grapevine list of supported devices is a significant step forward for the product offering and another testament to Grapevine’s interoperability,” said Brent Felker, VP Field Mobility Solutions for DecisionPoint Systems. “Since its introduction Grapevine customers have been asking for a client that enables their managers and dispatchers to use the system when away from their desk. With the explosion of Android in the enterprise, the Android client is a critical piece to our solution.”
