Lenovo Launches New Mobile App Shop Just for Businesses
Offers Services from Custom Management and Corporate Publishing Ability to Volume Discounts
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – March 27, 2012: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced its first enterprise app shop – the Lenovo Enterprise App Shop - to bring end-to-end mobile app services to large businesses, enabling custom management, deployment and publication as well as volume pricing. The Lenovo Enterprise App Shop makes it simple for corporate users to access and use productivity apps on their Lenovo tablet or other Android-based tablet (version 3.1 and higher).
"With the influx of personal and mobile devices in the workplace, it’s critical for companies to manage the proprietary and third-party applications their employees are using,” said Mark Cohen, vice president, Ecosystem and Monetization, Lenovo. “We created an app shop designed specifically for the enterprise featuring LDAP integration and cross Android platform support to facilitate IT management while giving users the apps they’re demanding to boost productivity.”
A Way to Manage Multitude of Apps

Lenovo App Shop Manager solves this challenge by allowing companies to create their own customized App Shops. IT managers can purchase, license, distribute and manage approved applications for the end user. Lenovo App Shop Manager controls only the apps, not the device, like other mobile device management solutions.

Additionally, as a software-as-a-service cloud hosted solution without infrastructure and support required, it offers a low cost of ownership. App Shop Manager offers the following key services:
