The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Hunter Engineering has purchased MobileFrame to automate their field service operations. Hunter Engineering designs manufactures and sells a wide range of passenger car and truck service equipment including wheel balancers, alignment racks and garage lifts. Although Hunter’s technicians are independent contractors, Hunter’s goal was to remove all paper-based processes involved in customer visits for installation of new equipment, warranty work and/or any additional type of servicing. With MobileFrame, Hunter Engineering will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile applications that are closely integrated with each contractor’s instance of QuickBooks and also Hunter’s corporate office QuickBooks as well. This has allowed Hunter to begin offering a backup service to their contractors, thus uncovering a new revenue stream.
Hunter Engineering did a very thorough investigation of all available mobile technologies, including all the big names, ultimately selecting MobileFrame for its flexibility, sophistication and ease of use. With MobileFrame, Hunter Engineering will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile field service applications that give them greater visibility into what is happening in their customer base.
Although application development tools are commonplace, those tools require costly, time-consuming development to create business applications. Moreover, such business solutions tend to be inflexible, requiring expensive custom programming whenever business processes change. As business processes evolve, MobileFrame’s software provides users with unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and to make changes to those applications on-the-fly. With its flexibility and ease of use, MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software will allow Hunter Engineering to quickly deploy their mobile applications and make changes as needed, without time-consuming and expensive development efforts.
“There are a lot of mobility solutions to choose from, and Hunter Engineering carefully evaluated them all over the course of 15 months to ensure they chose the right solution. After performing rigorous due diligence, Hunter chose MobileFrame for its ease of use and flexibility.”
— Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame CEO
