BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - EXO U, Inc. (TSX-V:EXO),
unveils the next release of its award-winning, cross-OS application
engine and user interface ("UI") at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona,
Spain (Hall 1, Booth G1.22). EXO's UI enables Bring Your Own Device
("BYOD") by providing the same snappy user experience on top of 5
different operating systems (OS's), with or without Internet
As the number of operating systems and form factors proliferates, the
challenge of managing these devices continues to escalate. Developers
are forced to pick and choose which operating systems they will
support. But with EXO U's latest software release EXO UI 3.0, IT
administrators are able to easily develop, manage, and deploy
applications to their workforces, dramatically improving productivity
for development resources and staff while saving on infrastructure and
EXO U enables the same user experience across different OS's, and allows
developers to run the same apps on several different devices and form
factors. From the device's hardware to on premise networking and
infrastructure, EXO U integrates with existing systems in order to
deliver a simple, intuitive UI that is easy to use, easy to manage, and
easy to build on.
EXO U's platform stands apart in the following areas:
Unified Experience across All Devices - from the developer to the end
user, everyone can focus on a great user experience. A user experience
at its simplest, consistent across any devices, enabling true BYOD.
Snappy and Flawless - less than a second to start using an app, supports
offline mode, and is not dependent on the quality of the connectivity.
Delivers greater productivity to your workforce with tools that are so
simple and intuitive, they rival their consumer counterparts.
Collaborative - removes the barriers to collaboration with the EXO U
framework. With its hybrid server and peer-to-peer model, EXO UI
delivers a natural and consistent collaborative experience.
Always On - EXO UI and apps run online and offline. Using local static
data and data synchronization improves responsiveness, optimizes
bandwidth usage and enables offline productivity. Ensures end users can
continue to collaborate in peer-to-peer mode.
Full control - The EXO UI is a sandboxed, protected area running on the
device that creates a dual persona. IT administrators have
full-control of the sandbox from the EXO U provided management console
which allows them to administer security policies, provision apps and
data, and manage users.
Private Beta Program Now Open
Today, EXO U opens its private beta program to allow key partners,
customers, and developers to explore the possibilities of the EXO U
solution within their computing environments.
The private beta gives developers and partners access to:
The latest release of EXO U's snappy, award winning solution consisting
of the EXO UI, Collaborative Workspace, and IT Management Console;
Preview of exciting cross-OS applications; and
EXO U software development platform to create, test, and publish
with access to 750 methods, properties, and events (APIs)
EXO U pushes the limits of any web model by solving the problem of
fragmentation and software deployment, revealing a fast, efficient,
productive and collaborative world while reducing the costs and risks
related to the infrastructure.
Snappy experience - working fast is addictive. It increases
self-confidence and avoid millions of seconds lost waiting for a web
pages or slow software
Productivity is not lost when Internet connectivity is poor or down
Mix of real-time and asynchronous collaboration allows users to
concentrate on their tasks while sharing live moments
Evolutionary with a development kit allowing fast, cross OS apps
development with access to both client-side and server-side resources,
with support of peer-to-peer protocols
Sandboxed environment with secure communication between devices and with
the servers, and full control of this environment, with no impact on
the rest of the device
"The interface created by EXO U is what schools need: a solution that
facilitates implementing BYOD, while allowing the teacher to focus on
teaching" Thierry KARSENTI (@thierryUdM), MA, M.Ed., Ph.D. Canada
Research Chair in Technologies in Education
The challenge is huge when teachers need to support a classroom running
multiple operating systems. With the same UI running on top of any OS,
a teacher can manage his/her classroom, push content and activities,
and prevent students from socializing on the web during class time.
Same interface, same apps on all the devices, ensures teachers won't
have to become IT specialists
Instant and easy sharing of digital content with an ability to select
all of the students or individual students
Classroom management which can prevent students from socializing online
during class or exploring the web during an exam
Keeps running when Internet is down
Allow the teacher to access the technology available everywhere in
his/her environment, from the student's devices to the whiteboard, and
focus on his/her classroom.
