i³ Systems, Inc.

i³ Systems, Inc. (headquartered in Fukuoka City, Fukuoka; Founder and CEO: Tsutomu Sasaki) is pleased to begin offering today our newest version of CLOMO MOBILE APP PORTAL with more advanced in-house mobile app distribution and management as well as enhanced functions for resolving operational issues.

With the latest version of CLOMO MOBILE APP PORTAL, we have taken app usage that is flexible to changing corporate structure (e.g. administrator-guided remote in-house app installations / uninstalls) to the next level, and have enhanced measures for preventing unnecessary use. In addition, CLOMO MOBILE APP PORTAL can now accommodate Android app registrations and distributions. We have also strengthened its environmental aspects by doubling the deliverable app size and expanding the app registration / distribution environment.

The new CLOMO MOBILE APP PORTAL further enriches app distribution and management functions even in varied device environments, as well as reducing the burden on administrators while making secure mobile app use in-house a reality.

Use CLOMO MOBILE APP PORTAL When...

  • … you want to release an in-house app only to a specific organization and limit its use.
  • …you want to forcibly uninstall in-house apps (i.e. when a device is lost or employees leave the company, etc.).
  • …you want to uniformly manage apps even in a mixed (Android / iOS) environment.
  • …you want to distribute a high-capacity app including contents like videos.
