Telkom launches financial reports app
Telkom has launched a mobile application for tablet computers that allows people to review its financial data. Called the Telkom Financial Reports App, the application is available for tablets running Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS operating systems and is free to download and use.
The app was designed and built by Telkom and includes the company’s annual reports and the ability to check annual and interim results. It also carries the company’s latest JSE Sens news announcements and uses push notifications to alert users to the availability of updated information.
The iOS version of the app for Apple’s iPad devices is available in Apple’s App Store and the Android version is available via Google Play. They have been launched just days before Telkom’s annual results presentation on Friday.
The Android version is compatible with 10-inch tablet computers running Android 3.0 or later. Telkom says it intends to develop versions of the app that support smaller displays.
The company says its latest financial information will be updated on the application at the same time as the information on the company’s corporate website.
Telkom isn’t the first company to launch an app aimed at shareholders. Mobile operator Vodacom also has a financial results application called Vodacom Report Library. — (c) 2012 NewsCentral Media
