Sunnyvale, CA – October 28, 2014 – Boopsie, Inc. announced an exclusive partnership with LoYakk, a next-generation mobile engagement platform for Fortune 500 companies. LoYakk technology allows for the integration of collaboration functionality in Boopsie’s library apps so that regional and functional teams in large multi-national organizations can more quickly and easily share knowledge. LoYakk is headquartered in Silicon Valley, founded by former SAP executives and already has American College of Sports Medicine, SAP and Reliance as customers.
“The addition of LoYakk functionality to the Boopsie platform is a real plus for global corporations, allowing seamless knowledge access and collaboration regardless of geographic or technology boundaries,” added Dave Clementz, Boopsie Advisory Board member and former CIO of Chevron Corporation.
LoYakk’s platform will offer various modules inside of Boopsie’s library-branded mobile applications used by large enterprises in order to ensure relevant knowledge is shared easily and quickly among particular divisions or locations via mobile devices. The LoYakk platform also allows app users to communicate in real time with other employees, both between specific departments as well as company wide. For instance, research departments can easily share news of a new discovery to relevant groups, or the company could announce safety-related findings or procedures that affect certain regions or field operations.
“Boopsie is a valuable knowledge management platform for large corporations,” says Salim Ali, CEO and Co-founder of LoYakk. “Their corporate library mobile app offering provides a great resource for an increasingly mobile and BYOD workforce. LoYakk’s mobile engagement platform significantly enhances & accelerates decision-making by organizations.”

Boopsie recently added the Global Head of Android Partnerships at Google to its team in preparation for future growth of its knowledge management capability on different types of devices.
