Synerzip, a leading dual-shore Agile software product development partner for small to midsized, typically venture funded technology companies, announced today that it has partnered with Quickoffice to build a portfolio of office productivity applications for the Android platform.
Android, the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance, is the hottest new platform for mobile application development. Unlike Blackberry which largely appeals to corporate users and iPhone which is largely consumer focused, Android promises to appeal to both consumer and corporate users. Android operating systems will be available on a broad range of devices including, mobile phones, netbooks and tablet PCs. This broad applicability of Android OS makes it an attractive platform for building end user applications.
“While Synerzip has been assisting its clients for the last several years in building mobile applications on various mobile platforms including Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian and Palm, we believe the Quickoffice partnership will maximize our focus on mobile application development with particular emphasis on the Android platform,” said Hemant Elhence, Founder and CEO of Synerzip.
David Halpin, Quickoffice’s VP of Engineering noted, “The Quickoffice team has broad and deep expertise in building productivity applications on all mobile platforms. Given the strong demand for our products, last year we started looking for a software development partner who could help us significantly expand our development capacity in a capital efficient manner, without compromising quality and time to market.” David added, “We are very pleased with the caliber and quality of the Synerzip team. We found Synerzip’s expertise in Agile software development practices combined with their solid experience in the mobile/Android platform a perfect match for Quickoffice.”
Hemant observed, “The Quickoffice partnership will help us accelerate the development pace on the Android platform allowing us, through our Agile practices and offshore team, to develop new and compelling mobile applications for our clients rapidly and cost efficiently.”
