Syclo - Delivering mobile solutions to the enterprise A Tradition of Innovation and Dedication

In just ten years, Syclo's Agentry™ technology and its dedicated team of professionals have helped the company become a leader in providing mobile and wireless access to enterprise data and applications. In 1989, Richard Padula founded Competitive Advantage Systems, a consulting practice devoted to developing large-scale enterprise applications. After building a mobile solutions for Sprint, Rich recognized the high-growth opportunity in this market and founded Syclo in 1995. That same year, Syclo began developing its cornerstone technology, Agentry, a platform for extending enterprise systems and content onto mobile devices. In 1997, the company released SIM (Syclo Information Manager), one of the first solutions to enable access to corporate email, calendars and tasks via Web-enabled mobile phones and palmtop computers.

Later that year, Syclo introduced SMART--originally a software solution for technicians using Windows CE palmtops--which would evolve to become the most popular mobile software for maintenance organizations worldwide. Today SMART is used daily by thousands of technicians to access and update work orders and help organizations maximize productivity, extend asset life and keep operating costs low.

The strength of its mobile technology and a number of key customer wins led the company to develop strong alliances with leading software manufacturers such as MRO Software, which has built its Maximo Mobile Suite on Syclo's Agentry.

Today, Syclo continues to build custom mobile solutions for its customers through its mobile consulting practice and is also licensing its Agentry development platform to companies that want to develop their own mobile products. The company continues to innovate out-of-the-box software solutions that plug into leading backend systems and provide mobile access from a variety of popular handheld devices. With over 500 customers worldwide, Syclo's current focus is on developing targeted applications to serve a variety of industries.
