BaseMovil Developer Program We are now accepting individuals and organizations who wish to create enterprise-class applications that can be integrated with back-end systems like ERP or CRM, using a Software as a Service approach, in the limited beta of the BaseMovil Developer Program.Elondra, the company behind OpenBaseMovil and the commercial platform BaseMovil, sells enterprise applications in the Spanish market using this approach, and we look forward for others around the World (including Spain) to use the tools and infrastructure that we have developed.You don’t need any hardware or any kind of investment other than your work and effort, as we host the servers that manage the server side of the synchronization engine and web administration tools.You can use not just the OpenBaseMovil libraries, but also the closed-source sync engine library, hosting your application in our servers.Our service takes care of:

  • Over the air (OTA) distribution of applications via SMS push or pull
  • Database hosting, maintenance and backup.
  • Billing

Our servers act as communication bridge between the cellular phones (thanks to the sync engine) and any kind of back-end system (with a simple API for file interchange), so you can send back and forth information between any back-end system and cellular phones running a BaseMovil powered application.

The sync engine is able to create, populate and update both the structure and data of the database.

And this is for FREE for developers.

With our SaaS model, your customers will pay a setup fee and then monthly fees for each declared device, we bill them and then wire transfer you your earnings. You put the price for your applications, over a minimum defined by Elondra, and you get 60% of that amount (both from the setup fee and the monthly fees).

Elondra is partnering with different manufacturers and integrators to create connectors for the main ERP and CRM systems in the market and, of course, you will also be able to benefit selling those connectors to your customers.

We are building a vibrant collaboration network that can boost your performance and earnings. Join us!
With the on-line tools you will be able to:

  • Create and modify your databases
  • Upload applications and resources to be served
  • Check your customers performance and billing
  • Check your own bill, that you will have to invoice to us in order to receive your payment.
FREE!

Please, read carefully the OpenBaseMovil Commercial License.

If you have a question regarding the licensing of OpenBaseMovil or BaseMovil, drop an email to info(at)elondra(dot)com.

Why do you need a commercial license?

J2ME applications are constituted as a whole, so any library you use gets linked to the application during the build process. The GNU GPL license requires you to publish your source code completely and only under the GNU GPL license again. Buying a commercial license you can create applications that are not bound by the GPL, and thus you can use the libraries for commercial applications without restrictions

What is a “Single Application”?

If you want to use OpenBaseMovil for several single applications, you can buy an Enterprise License or a Single License for each of them.

A “Single Application” is one that would be perceived by the final user as the same.

You can create, for example, multiple application files for different devices, customize the application with different designs, create new versions with added functionality, small changes in navigation.

Once the main objective or core feature changes, the application can not be considered the same, and you would need to purchase a new license for it.

If you have doubts about the licensing model, please write to info(at)elondra(dot)com.
