MeLLmo Inc, provider of innovative mobile applications that allow users to view and interact with critical business information on-the-go, today announced the availability of Roambi ES3 at the Gartner BI Summit in Las Vegas, NV. Roambi ES3 is a secure and scalable mobile reporting system that allows companies to transform critical business reports and data from premium business intelligence (BI) systems into interactive dashboards for the iPhone or iPad.

Designed to meet and exceed the unique requirements for an enterprise-grade mobile application, new features in Roambi ES3 include: broad connectivity to diverse BI systems, an enterprise-ready user interface and tools, and the security and administrative capabilities required by enterprise-scale IT departments. These new features allow companies – from SMBs to large enterprises – to connect their busy professionals with convenient and timely business information for smarter, on-the-go analysis and decision making.

“Roambi continues to gain momentum in the enterprise, with more and more large companies implementing Roambi to maximize mobile productivity while leveraging existing business intelligence investments,” said Santiago Becerra, CEO and co-founder of MeLLmo, Inc. “Our goal is to be the face of business information – we designed Roambi ES3 not only to meet the robust security and management needs of our current and future ES customers, but also to enhance the user experience and ensure mobile executives are provided with up-to-the-minute reports that provide real insight into business data.”

New features available in Roambi ES3 include:

Expanded Connectivity

  • Data Sources and Portals: Roambi ES3 connects with new data sources and portals including IBM Cognos, Microsoft Reporting Services, Microsoft Sharepoint, and LifeRay, in addition to previously supported systems including SAP Crystal Reports, SAP BusinessObjects, Salesforce CRM and Microsoft Excel.
  • Device Access: Roambi ES3 enables browser access to a Flash version of Roambi files, making Roambi dashboards accessible on any enterprise user’s laptop or desktop computer, in addition to iPad and iPhone.

Enhanced “enterprise-ready” user experience

  • New Enterprise Views: New views, Trends and Pods, give enterprise users powerful ways to view and interact with their complex data on the go.
    • Trends: allows users to easily track Key Performance Indicators over time.
    • Pods: allows users to easily combine multiple charts and graphs into a single convenient dashboard, providing for quick ad-hoc comparisons and analysis.
  • Customer Branding: Companies can customize the look and feel of Roambi to match their company branding, including: customizable skins, company logos and tailored color themes.

Additional tools for enterprise-scale IT

  • Automated Distribution
    • Batching: With Batching, IT administrators can now run scripts that allow them to change or vary the parameters of data report generation when creating a Roambi file. Additionally, administrators can programmatically schedule the creation and distribution of Roambi files, allowing them to manage “peak times” on the server side.
    • Enterprise-grade Push: Enables administrators to easily create thousands of Roambi mobile dashboards from existing reports and push to users. Enterprise features also increase control by allowing administrators to push different data to users depending on relevance and authorization level.
  • Auto Refresh: ES3 enables Roambi files to refresh automatically on opening to assure that users will always have the latest available data.
  • Enhanced Device and File Security
    • Remote wipe: Administrators can delete all Roambi content from a specific device in one easy step.
    • File Delete: Administrators can remove or recall a specific Roambi file from user devices if it is out of date or no longer relevant.
    • Device block: Administrators can block a specific device from accessing the company server.
    • Offline PIN: An added level of data protection with the addition of a local PIN number required only if the phone is offline.
