(BERLIN/DENVER, September 22 2014) Enterprise mobility expert Cortado announces that the upcoming version of its on-premises solution, Cortado Corporate Server, will support app extensions available with iOS 8. This means that users will be able to open and save documents directly to the corporate network with the Cortado solution – without having to resort to additional storage options and apps.
With iOS 7, interaction between apps on iOS devices has been via the “open in” option. Thus documents are “opened in” from one app to another and saved. Should the document be edited with another app, then this is done via “open in” and saving the file to a different location. The result is duplicated documents in multiple locations and tedious searching for the latest version of the file. Today, Cortado Corporate Server already offers this with Smart Filing, an intelligent way to save files from an app instantly and directly to the file server.
With iOS 8, this concept is even further simplified. Apple introduced app extensions, i.e. the opening of Apple up to other storage providers. Thanks to document providers, the user no longer has to constantly switch between apps and storage locations, but can save files in other systems.
The new version of Cortado Corporate Server, due later this year, will fully support this new iOS 8 feature. Directly via Cortado’s enterprise mobility solution, users will be able to access the corporate file server with their apps and save documents to the corporate network.
“With our new version for iOS 8, searching for the latest version of a document and creating unnecessary duplicates in different locations is no longer necessary”, said Kristin Montag, Cortado Corporate Server product manager at Cortado. “There is now only a single version of the document that can be edited with different apps and saved directly to the corporate network. This is a huge step for the business capability of iPads and iPhones and overall mobile productivity.”

A recorded webinar is available on the Cortado website dealing with this topic titled “iOS 8 & Cortado – Designing Enterprise Mobility”.
