Assistant Features

Now Assistant uses the Mobility Portal Server as the underlying architecture to facilitate the exchange of information between the different services you use in your organization.
  • HTML5

    Open Standards

    We’re backing HTML 5 + CSS 3, use Web Sockets and the open-source Polymer Front-end from Google. But we’re client-agnostic and can supply REST APIs to most front-end frameworks. That ensures security of your investment for years to come.

  • Responsive Design

    Responsive App Design

    From the tiny Google Glass UI to a full-blown desktop computer the Now Assistant are using a responsive layout to adapt dynamically to the available screen size, offering slick interactions regardless of device size.

  • Connectors

    Hybrid Power

    The back-end unites data sources from the internet (i.e. Cloud or SaaS services) and intranet (i.e. Servers, databases, integrations) and fuses them all together, as though they are all part of the same architecture.

  • Low bandwidth

    Low bandwidth optimized

    Mobility Portal is packed with modern tech to make web apps feel as spritely as native ones. WebSockets help reduce bandwidth and are light on your phone’s battery, too. Offline mode offers reliable connectivity even on a sketchy connection.

  • Connectors


    Now Assistant connects to all your existing services you use around the office. It can be consumer services such as Dropbox, business applications such a CRM system and they can both be either installed on-premise, like SharePoint, or hosted in the Cloud, like Salesforce. To top it off we also integrate any relational database, so we really do mean all your existing data.

    All notifications and search results are organized into Cards that feature only the most important information prominently and easy to see at a glance. Clicking a card will send the user to the application the data originated from.

    Card Anatomy

    Card layouts follow logic guidelines that keep common elements in fixed places while creating other areas that can be customized for specific Cards.

  • Status Card

    Liquid Templates

    The layout of Cards is defined with the open-source Liquid layout language that uses tags to easily reassemble reusable parts to new Cards.

  • Audiences


    Cards have Audiences that are based on employee function. That way employees from Sales will automatically be subscribed to certain Cards (e.g. open leads, sales target) while employees from Finance will see other cards by default (e.g. quarterly earnings, invoice reminders).

    The same feature also lets administrators restrict Cards so they're not visible to certain Audiences.
