The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Los Gatos, CA (February 21, 2013) – MobileFrame LLC, the industry leading cross platform mobile application development platform, announces that Sierra-Cascade Nurseries has standardized on MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM platform for a wide variety of mobile applications across the enterprise.
Sierra-Cascade Nursery, Inc. was founded in 1977, with headquarters located in rural Susanville, California and is engaged primarily in growing high-elevation strawberry plants which are sold to fruit growers in central and southern California. Sierra-Cascade grows the plants, then sells them to fruit growers once they reach a certain size and before they flower. They need to track the plants all the way through the process from harvest to warehouse, to cutting and shipping. Examples of the data they need to collect in the field include the species type, the ranch where they were grown and the date harvested.
Although Sierra-Cascade already had a mobile app deployed to some users, they were looking for a solution that was more stable, with better data management capabilities. Rather than sending all data to all users, they wanted to subset their data by sending only the right data to the right user. MobileFrame’s Dynamic Data was designed specifically for this purpose and was the perfect solution to the problem.
The company has an extensive list of apps to deploy over time, include time tracking, equipment and fuel tracking, packaging data and Bill of Lading tracking. All of the data collected will be integrated to their business system so that the entire staff will have a seamless solution, making their work more efficient. The hardware that the company has standardized on is the Intermec CN70 rugged handheld computers. Today’s mobile worker is in a race against time and needs to get the job done right – right now. Spotty wireless coverage, weather extremes, damaged barcodes, dimly lit trucks, and heavy device wear and tear are the reality of their day. The CN70 meets these challenges head on with next generation features that save valuable seconds and deliver unparalleled reliability. Today the company is using barcodes, but they may transition to RFID in future phases.
“Selecting MobileFrame to automate all data collection by eliminating pen-and-paper is a reflection of the strength of Sierra-Cascade’s management team. MobileFrame’s innovative mobility solution will provide Sierra-Cascade’s management with real-time visibility into their operations and result in a rapid ROI from their technology investment. Helping to streamline our customers’ operations and set them apart from their competition is as important to MobileFrame as it is to our customers. “
– Patricia Oswalt, MobileFrame EVP of Sales and Marketing
