Business description: BackWeb Technologies helps companies maximize their portal content investment by prioritizing, delivering and ensuring the receipt of critical information to extended enterprise. BackWeb's ProactivePortal® technologies address the need of mobile users to access and transact with critical enterprise Web content and applications when they are working outside an office and disconnected from a network. Examples include sales tools, forecast management, contact lists, service repair guides, expense report updates, pricing data, time sheets, collaboration sessions, work orders and other essential document and applications. With BackWeb, the corporate portal is no longer passive. Our products work with a company's existing infrastructure and available bandwidth to ensure the scalable and proactive delivery of portal content to stakeholders everywhere – both online and offline. Each user's interaction with the content is guaranteed and tracked. Network performance is never affected. And files of any size and type can be delivered. The result: a more productive and efficient field force.
