Another heavy-hitter announces increased compatibility with the Android platform.

Airclic, a global company that provides software for improving the performance of mobile supply chain and logistics operations with real-time tracking and enhanced monitoring of an organization’s people, assets and activities, announced that it will be taking advantage of the most recent Android development updates, further expanding its product deployment on the Android operating system.

The flexible and scalable nature of its Mobile Performance Platform enables Airclic to rapidly introduce new products in response to evolving market demands. Customers are guaranteed 99.9 percent uptime and the ability to scale with the organization’s growing needs.

Airclic cited statistics surrounding the recent widespread adoption of the Android operating system: it is supported in more than 30 countries and is the only platform to gain market share for six consecutive months. According to Gartner, as of the second quarter of this year, Android smart phone shipments have grown nearly 886 percent year-on-year.

“This enhancement clearly illustrates the flexibility and scalability of our Mobile Performance Platform, as well as our dedication to making mobile software adoption easy and affordable,” said Rick Pontin, CEO of Airclic. “As reliance on the Android operating system increases, Airclic customers can be assured that our products will support the advancements and new capabilities of the platform.”

“Many of our customers and prospects want to take advantage of the functionality available within the Android operation system, especially the availability of new barcode scanning technologies,” Pontin continued. ”With this upgrade, businesses using the Android platform are now able to read a barcode by taking a picture of it, rather than scan a barcode for recognition. This eliminates the need for a sophisticated scanning device and resulting in tremendous cost savings.”

Airclic is not the first this month to announce acceptance of the Android platform. As Android's market share grows, companies are responding to demand. Could Android be pulling ahead in the smartphone race? Only time will tell.
