Home Business Telecommunications Spectralink Pivot gets the tick from Google

Spectralink Pivot mobile devices are now certified for use with Google Mobile Services.

Spectralink's Pivot is a Voice over Wi-Fi handset with smartphone-like features designed for in-building mobile workers (think retail, healthcare, warehouse and so on).

Pivot is now certified for use with Google Mobile Services such as Google Cloud Messaging, Google search, and Play Store.

Pivot is often used with specialised vertical applications, and the developers of such apps can now incorporate Google Cloud Messaging support for communication with other parts of a wider system.

Such functions may include secure text messaging, notifications, alarms and alerts.

For example, Spectralink partner Spok (formerly Amcom Software) uses Google Cloud Messaging for its secure texting applications.

"The Google Mobile Services certification for Spectralink is an exciting development for Pivot," said Spok senior mobile product manager Jim Cikanek, as it means those applications are now interoperable with Pivot.

Spectralink CEO Sten Dyrmose said "Spectralink continues to develop its purpose-built devices to solve the unique problems enterprises face with effective communication every day.

"This spirit of innovation is in every Spectralink mobile device, and is designed to empower workers to be more efficient and productive whether through talk, workflow or notifications and alerts.

"With Google Mobile Services, our AIMS partners can offer enterprises more choice in how they enable their workers to communicate and improve the performance of the entire business."

In related news, Android 4.4.2 KitKat is now available on Pivot.
