Mobien’s comprehensive suite of products enables companies to extend their business capabilities to mobile devices, critical as today’s workforce becomes increasingly mobile and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend grows.
“As smartphones, tablets and laptops enable today’s workforce to stay on the go, companies are scrambling to find a way to allow their employees to stay on top of their work even while away from the office, and Mobien’s products enable enterprises to capitalize on the BYOD trend,” explained Ajit Gokhale, CEO of Mobien Digital. “Being named a finalist by Red Herring proves that Mobien has its finger on the pulse of the market as we move further into a new era of technology and mobile device capabilities.”

These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America awards, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement. The top 100 winners will be announced on November 29.
