The Shortcut to your Enterprise

Open Source

Feature

With BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and BlackBerry 10 devices, your employees have direct access to your company intranet through the Work Browser. But navigation through your intranet might not always be easy, and it might help to provide your users with some waypoints.

Using our WebWorks web launcher open source project, you can create simple web clips onto the device of your users, they can use to launch your intranet portal or specific website in the Work Browser.

The Project is available here on GitHub (WebWorks-launcher)
