Munich/Zurich/Copenhagen (pts015/09.10.2008/10:27) - MindMatics AG in Munich has created a Mobile Internet Portal with connections to SAP and SharePoint in just six months for one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, the Zurich based Novo Nordisk. All staff members at Novo Nordisk can now access company information, hosted in the MindMatics data centre, quickly and securely through various mobile phones and smart phones.
The company's staff needs to be able to access data quickly and at any time from around the world. To support sales and to increase the availability of information for its staff, Novo Nordisk introduced the new Mobile Internet.
"The service integration for the introduction and operation of the innovative and user-friendly information system has proven to be highly efficient thanks to MindMatics' flexible mobile platform and the excellent project teamwork," said Peter Geissler, IT Consultant at Novo Nordisk Region International Operations. "In just six months, we have created a secure and user-friendly mobile data access facility for our staff as part of our Enterprise Resource Planning Project."
The Mobile Intranet is based on MindMatics' Mobile Portal Suite, with the information and services automatically optimised for displaying information for up to 3000 different mobile and Blackberry models. The individual access rights for the members of staff will be allocated through single sign-on with integrated rights management, so that the scalable system can be used throughout the company at each level of management. Staff members can access information from SAP, SharePoint and other content sources with their mobile phone or Blackberry. Similar to a personalised Google site, the "My Favourite Functions" option enables staff members to manage a link list to other mobile services. MindMatics operates and monitors the Intranet for Novo Nordisk as an ASP solution and has enabled real-time online reporting.
"Following our project success in the heath care sector, we have created a Mobile Intranet for Novo Nordisk for the first time in the pharmaceutical industry," said Thomas Berger, Head of Mobile Internet at MindMatics. With reference to the current market trend, Berger added: "This shows that mobile portals can be used efficiently to support in-house communication in a B-to-B environment."
