ORANGE, Conn. — May 22, 2013 — Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Mobile Communications Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced that it has signed a Software Development Cooperation Agreement with SAP AG. Under terms of the agreement, Tangoe and SAP will work cooperatively to integrate Tangoe’s Mobile TEM software suite with the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio including SAP® Afaria® 7.0.
Specifically, the agreement enables Tangoe and SAP to develop interoperability between the SAP Afaria mobile device management software and Tangoe’s procurement, fulfillment, invoice processing, expense allocation, asset management, plan optimization, catalog management and carrier payment capabilities.
“The exponential growth of enterprise mobile computing requires robust and globally available solutions to proactively manage mobility usage,” said Sanjay Poonen, president of Technology Solutions and head of Mobile Division, SAP. “Companies can no longer focus on one aspect of enterprise mobility management but must instead take a holistic view of their mobile ecosystem. We anticipate that our software development cooperation agreement with Tangoe will expand the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio to manage mobile communications in addition to mobile devices, applications, and content.”
“We are excited about this software development cooperation agreement with SAP,” said Al Subbloie, president, CEO, and founder of Tangoe. “This agreement marks a critically important phase of a potential multi-phased relationship with SAP. More importantly, the agreement brings together one of the industry’s broadest enterprise mobility software providers and a leading provider of Mobile CLM solutions in order to more fully address the number-one trend impacting enterprises today – mobility management.
