Lenovo unveils its own App store for businesses
The ThinkPad and IdeaPad tablet company, Lenovo has now gone on to launch the Lenovo Enterprise App Shop. This Enterprise App shop from Lenovo will act as a new portal for business-secure Android tablets and their supported applications.
The main aim behind the idea of this App shop is to offer application services to large businesses, thereby enabling them custom app management, publication, deployment, and volume pricing. The store will help the users to go through and make use of the available productivity apps on their Lenovo tablets or basically any other tablet with Android OS and the Android version greater than 3.0.
This App store has the ability to help businesses to start-up their very own customized App shops, and will also enable IT managers to purchase, license, manage and publish applications to all the users available in the market. The Lenovo App Shop has been available almost worldwide now, oddly except for its main market - China.
The Chinese tablet company has shared that all the applications have been vetted prior to their inclusion in the coming Lenovo App shop Catalog. The company has also revealed that the participating companies can also select and de-select application from the area. The enterprise apps are also accessible to thousands of apps in MobiHand Universal Android Catalog, and even allowing the users to set the volume app purchase, pricing and disable applications from the tablet when not needed.
The vice president of ecosystem and monetization at Lenovo, Mark Cohen puts forward that with the great influx of personal and mobile devices in the workplace, it gets pretty critical for companies to manage the proprietary and third-party applications which their employees are finding useful and currently using.
Cohen added, that Lenovo has now developed an app shop specifically for the enterprise featuring LDAP integration and cross Android platform support which aids to facilitate the It management by providing the users with the applications they demand to boost productivity.
The Company’s App Shop has numerous business friendly features which lay down a great emphasis on security. The App store has featured the Lenovo App Shop manager and allowing the users to control the applications themselves, instead of using the hardware device; as in the case of most of the mobile device management systems.
David Gannon, the associate director of academic computing and media services at the Bryant University has stated that the with the introduction of Lenovo App Store, the very distribution and license management of applications for the classroom has been a lot more simplified. The App Store has cut down on the factory resets and streamlining application installation. To his response, Gannon has found the App very easy to use and pretty intuitive.
