In the pages of PalmPower's Enterprise Edition, we've spotlighted countless applications in a vast array of businesses and industries, but we haven't even begun to hit them all. The simplicity and versatility of the Palm OS platform has made it possible for developers to create solutions that can fit into just about any business environment you can imagine.
With the huge array of solutions available "somewhere out there," how do you go about finding what's right for your company? Well, that's easy thanks to a useful Enterprise Solutions Directory provided by Palm at http://enterprisesolutions.palm.com, and pictured in Figure A.FIGURE A

With this directory, you can quickly and easily find the solutions you need in the industry of your choosing. It's helpful, well organized, and quite extensive, which is why we selected the site as the PalmPower Magazine Enterprise Edition Site of the Month.
To find what you're looking for, all you need to do is choose your search criteria using the convenient drop-down boxes. First you choose the industry, which includes categories such as agriculture, finance, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, transportation, etc. Next you choose the function or type of application. Categories here include asset tracking, CRM (Customer Relationship Management), field service, management, multimedia, supply chain management, and so on.
Alternatively, if there's a particular company or application title you're looking for, you can search for it using the directory's alphabetical listing of companies and products.
Until now, finding the perfect Palm OS application for your business can be a daunting task. With Palm's Enterprise Solutions Directory, that job gets quite a bit easier. Be sure to check it out at http://enterprisesolutions.palm.com.
