The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Accidents happen. Mobile devices get lost, stolen and broken; it’s just a fact of life. With as much as we rely on these devices, these accidents can grind production to a halt. Not only is there a security risk, but now there is also the matter of installing the software on a new device and all the configuration needed to set it up.
MobileFrame‘s built-in Mobile Device Management (MDM) is designed to help in these instances. Since the MobileFrame application is not hard-coded on the device you can quickly and easily change from one device to another. Just install the client on a new device and you are back up and running, with barely skipping a beat. And as far as security, you can force logoff, requiring password authentication to log back in.
Equipment maintenance systems have been an integral part of production environments for decades. There is no denying the importance and benefits of well-maintained equipment. Prolonged asset life and reductions in both downtime and operating costs have turned maintenance from being viewed as a cost of doing business to vital part of being profitable.
Traditional barriers to effectively managing the maintenance process have been in organization and documentation of the system used. Tracking each piece of equipment by last service date, frequency of service, scheduling of routine maintenance – all on paper – it becomes a full time job to maintain the maintenance system. Computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software was developed to organize this information, and quickly became not only a way of managing upkeep; it has become a tool for improving maintenance performance.
Healthcare is an industry where time can mean more than just money – it can mean the difference between life and death. Given the critical and fast paced nature of hospitals, equipment can easily be misplaced. This means staff must spend valuable time looking for beds, wheelchairs, or defibrillators. Finding this equipment quickly not only saves the time spent looking for it, but it reduces staff frustration and increases patient satisfaction.
For the past 20 years organizations that have implemented mobile software solutions have found that in order to be successful they had to become subject matter experts in mobile computing. This is in addition to figuring out how to cobble together software components from different vendors in order to ensure a successful deployment.
In fact during a recent meeting with a prospective client we discussed this very topic. During our discussion he said that when his team was implementing their legacy mobile solution in 2003, they had to learn about a variety of technologies related to mobile computing.
• Weekly timecards always equal 40 hours
• Lunches are always 1 hour long?
• Overtime and project time always seems to come in 1 hour increments?
If so, you are not alone. With every new customer that implements a simple time tracking or job costing application they find that they have been able to save every payroll period.
Along with the smartphone boom of the past decade we have also seen an exponential increase in the number of companies providing mobile applications.
This increase in the number of available software vendors has caused confusion in the marketplace when trying to determine what the main differences are between companies that provide simple mobile forms vs. mobile business applications.
When most companies are investigating solutions they are looking for ways to eliminate the manual process of collecting information on paper. By eliminating the collection of data on paper, the business will be able to save costs, and ultimately increase profits. As an example let us assume that you are currently looking for a mobile software vendor to help eliminate paper from your field operations. You have completed your preliminary research and think you have found 2 companies that could be a potential fit.
The first step in going paperless is finding the right solution vendor that not only has the experience to help you to understand your mobile workflow needs, but also the right technology to help you to ensure a successful mobile deployment.

Service based businesses have to make miracles happen every day. Service managers, dispatchers, operations managers are in charge of monitoring and managing the flow of work out in the field. The only thing that is constant in this environment is change. When change happens, and it will… administering this task on paper becomes almost IMPOSSIBLE.
Let’s look at a simple example.
ABC Company utilizes an office based work order scheduling application. Daily work orders are entered into this system, scheduled to a mobile worker, printed out, picked up and everyone goes out and completes their work…right?
What happens when you have last minute changes to today’s schedule? For example, a customer calls and cancels, an emergency job comes in, someone called in sick, leaving you to juggle everything and find someone to complete the work. This can be a real problem, especially without having the appropriate systems and technology in place to help.
Here are some common questions that need to be answered.
