The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
While getting ready for the holidays I was at the mall, and it was packed! People were hustling and bustling about, looking for the perfect gift for loved ones. I mean it was NUTS! It made me think, why do we put ourselves through all this? Couldn’t we just as easily get a gift card, or whatever is in the sale ads for the people close in our lives? Wouldn’t they be happy just knowing we thought of them? No. There is something to be said for the perfect gift, the one thing that – when you see it – you know it was made for them.
Why settle for less when it comes to your organization’s mobile application needs? Off the shelf systems are designed to meet industry wide needs, but not necessarily the requirements of your organization. Your organization is unique and chances are your software needs are as well. Settling for an off the shelf system might solve some of your problems, but it will surely leave holes – probably in just the places that differentiate your organization.

After researching several software packages, it was obvious that MobileFrame was a perfect fit. With MobileFrame, Scheid Vineyards has been able to automate harvest tracking and fertilization information down to the individual row level, which has achieved significant efficiency gains for the company.

Warnambool Cheese and Butter Factory (WCB), producers of high-quality dairy products for over 120 years, selected MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile Application Solution to eliminate all paper based processes across the company. WCB is one of the oldest dairy processors in Australia today and is a major producer of high quality dairy commodities such as cheese, milk powders, whey protein, butter and cream, for both domestic and export markets.
Prior to purchasing the MobileFrame solution, their staff was using clipboard and paper forms to do quality control inspections on both the production floor and in the warehouse. After the data was collected, the completed forms were turned over to administrative staff to manually enter the data into their business system. This manual system was extremely labor intensive, error-prone and inefficient, so they were looking for an easy to use, intuitive software solution to solve these problems. WCB quickly realized that MobileFrame’s platform can be used to deploy any app with any requirement across any department. Their apps can be tailored to their business and integrated to their JD Edwards backend system. Some of the benefits of MobileFrame’s solution include:
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.

When investigating mobile software solutions every organization has to ask themselves the age old question: “Can I find something off the shelf to solve this problem?”
I invite you to consider the merits of evaluating an alternative approach before spending money on a solution.
FACT: Off the shelf mobile software solutions are developed by companies that identify some common problems in a specific market, then build a software solution that addresses some of those needs. This is also called a one size fits all approach.
PROBLEM: Here is where the problem lies; no two organizations even within a specific market operate in exactly the same way. The associated business logic that has made your organization successful can’t be incorporated into a boxed solution intended to fit the masses.
