Cortado's Corporate Server becomes Android-friendly

The increasing popularity of Android is attracting more enterprise software vendors, according to Gartner

German software vendor Cortado has added Android-based smartphones to the list of devices using version 5.0 of its Corporate Server platform that can access network printers and documents stored in corporate networks, the company said on Tuesday.

Users can also create PDF documents and faxes, and access database reports with Corporate Server, it said. The platform is already compatible with Apple's iPhone and Research In Motion's smartphones, now including ones that use RIM's BlackBerry Internet service as well.

The increasing popularity of Android and the expectation that it will become the second-biggest mobile OS, is attracting more enterprise software vendors, according to Leif-Olof Wallin, research vice president at Gartner. Apple's iPhone is still the most important smartphone OS, but Android now comes in second place, he said.

In June, Cortado also released its Workplace product, which allows users to remotely store, view and manage documents for Android-based smartphones.

Besides Android and RIM's BlackBerry Internet Service, version 5.0 of Corporate Server has a new search feature that lets users look for network printers in Microsoft's Active Directory, according to Cortado. The platform's "cloud printing feature" lets users print from any network printer within an organization, it said.

Cortado Corporate Server 5.0 costs €795 (US$1,050) for five users.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
