Flowfinity Wireless, a provider of mobile enterprise productivity applications, on Thursday rolled out a tool for BlackBerry smartphones that adds GPS-location information to every transaction and tells where the data originated from.

Flowfinity Actions 5.1 is intended for BlackBerrys with built-in GPS, such as the BlackBerry Curve 8310 and the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 models. The tool, which uses Geo-reporting and visualization capabilities of Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) MapPoint, time stamps and location stamps data any time a task is performed on the smartphone.

Flowfinity Actions running on BlackBerrys makes it possible to generate reports on "who, what, when and where" things occurred. This is useful for businesses that want to record trends visually onto maps and carry out location-specific analysis of business performance, contract compliance, and regulatory compliance, said Flowfinity's spokeswoman. The tool also can be used to track down the location of equipment and inventory.
