Broadvision has launched a product that makes its e-commerce and portal Web applications accessible from mobile and non-PC devices, it announced Wednesday.
With Broadvision Multi-Touchpoint Services, the company's Web-based applications can be accessed from wireless PDAs (personal digital assistants) and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) devices, kiosks, automated teller machines and point of sale terminals. The software also includes voice-interaction features, with support for VoiceXML (Extensible Markup Language), Broadvision said in a statement.
The software can identify what sort of device is interacting with a Web site and adjust the format and navigational methods to suit. It can be extended to cover new devices using open standard tools, Broadvision said.
Broadvision Multi-Touchpoint Services works with the 6.0 versions of Broadvision's applications, including Broadvision Business Commerce, Retail Commerce and InfoExchange Portal. Supported platforms include HP-UX, IBM AIX, Microsoft Windows 2000 and Sun Solaris.
It is available immediately, the Redwood City, California-based company said.
