Corpac Steel Tracks their Inventory with MobileFrame

Los Gatos, CA (September 25, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom enterprise mobile apps, announces that Corpac Steel has selected their Inventory Tracking Application.

Corpac is a global supplier and trader of pipe and steel products and services, specializing in line pipe, standard pipe, OCTG, Conduit and structural products. They receive pipe from their fabricators and need to know what pipe was received and the associated information about that pipe. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, Corpac was collecting this inventory data with pen and paper. Corpac Steel knew that keeping track of assets and inventory is necessary to ensure timely maintenance and proper supply, but tracking so many varied assets and items on paper presented a lot of challenges. With a paper-based system, the data error rate is high due to the amount of data collected on a variety of paper forms. They found this process to be time consuming and inefficient, and knew it was time for a change. Continue reading

Los Gatos, CA (August 16, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom enterprise mobile apps, announces that Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has chosen MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile Application TM  for their Mailroom Proof of Delivery requirements.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of cancer and related diseases.   Dana-Farber receives several packages each day by FedEx and UPS into their mail room, which their employees must then deliver to the right person and track that the delivery was completed successfully. Prior to implementing MobileFrame’s Mailroom POD Application, this was being done on clipboard and paper. MobileFrame’s software will be used for many apps, but the next one on the list is to deploy a physical inventory count application. As with most companies, Dana-Farber has many supply cabinets across their buildings where employees can take what they need to do their jobs. Of course that means that over time the supplies need to be replenished, so the app will provide summary reports to the right people. Continue reading

The City of Chicago Department of Water, which is responsible for delivering a billion gallons of fresh water to the residents of Chicago and surrounding communities, switched from their previous highly limited solution to MobileFrame because of its flexibility and ease of use.

The City of Chicago Department of Water has some very significant responsibilities when it comes to maintaining clean drinking water for its citizens. Its inspection staff is responsible for performing the necessary assessments to ensure compliance with their current water standards, as well as removing the waste water and storm runoff from the streets of Chicago via their sewer system and delivering the effluent for treatment to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. This is all accomplished through a network of purification plants, tunnels, pumping stations, water mains, sewer mains, valves and structures that require constant upkeep and maintenance. MobileFrame’s water inspection application has allowed them to collect their inspection data electronically, which has significantly improved this process by ensuring accuracy and efficiency.   Continue reading

Indianapolis Power and Light Puts a Lid on their Manhole Inspections Issues with MobileFrame

Los Gatos, CA (June, 14, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom enterprise mobile apps, announces that Indianapolis Power and Light has chosen MobileFrame’s application to eliminate the paper forms used for manhole inspections.

IPL is a leading provider of electric services to more than 470,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in Indianapolis and other central Indiana communities.  IPL needed to eliminate the paper forms used for manhole inspections, increase efficiencies and to make their data easily accessible to regulatory agencies. Because the software is specifically designed for mobility and fully customizable, IPL knew that MobileFrame would be a perfect fit.

Since manholes are considered the windows to the condition of America’s pipelines as well as a critical access point for storm water runoff and pollutants, it is very important to maintain their structural integrity. Proactive manhole assessment is a key component of any collection system asset management program. IPL found out that using a clipboard and paper to collect data, then having to aggregate hundreds of paper forms to prioritize rehabilitation was very inefficient. This is when MobileFrame stepped in. Continue reading

Terumo Medical Reinvents their Inventory Counts with MobileFrame’s Consignment Tracking Solution

Los Gatos, CA (March 8, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom enterprise mobile apps, announces that Terumo Medical Corporation has chosen MobileFrame’s consignment inventory  tracking applications. Terumo Medical is a sister company to MicroVention, a rapidly growing medical device company that is pioneering the development of catheter-based technologies for the endovascular treatment of peripheral and cerebral vascular diseases.

Like MicroVention, Terumo Medical employs sales reps who are responsible for conducting inventory counts at various hospitals where their products are used. These reps need to reconcile the amount of physical inventory at the site with the records in their JD Edwards backend system. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, the sales reps recorded these inventory counts on paper forms then had to reconcile the figures against the actual inventory by reviewing the reports generated. Terumo Medical’s office staff then manually entered this data into their business systems, which resulted in human error and excessive costs spent on labor hours. Continue reading

The Ding Doctor Touches Up Their Repair Estimate System with MobileFrame

Los Gatos, CA (March 5, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom enterprise mobile apps, announces that The Ding Doctor, providers of auto reconditioning services, has chose MobileFrame to customize their car repair estimate applications.

The Ding Doctor, or C.A.R.S., was founded with the dream of providing auto dealerships and retail customers with the highest quality reconditioning services and superior customer service in the industry.

The Ding Doctor needed an automated solution that would eliminate the paper and the labor hours associated with the double data entry. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, their mobile workers were collecting data on paper for all repair estimates on damaged vehicles. Those paper forms were then turned over to several clerks who would manually enter that data into their business systems. They found this system to be time consuming and highly inefficient. This is where MobileFrame stepped in. Continue reading

Mapes and Sprowl ‘Steels’ the Lead with MobileFrame’s Inspection Application

Los Gatos, CA (February 17, 2012) – MobileFrame LLC, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom mobile apps, announces that Mapes and Sprowl Steel, a leading service center specializing in enameling steel for porcelain-coating applications and silicon steel for electrical applications, has chosen MobileFrame’s Inspection Application.

Mapes and Sprowl was interested in standardizing on a single mobile application platform that would allow them to easily configure and deploy any app for any department on any handheld computer.  Because they already had a custom coded inspection application in use, they knew the time and effort that custom coding requires.

Once they began their evaluation of the solutions in the marketplace, they quickly realized that MobileFrame’s Configurable ApplicationTM platform provided the flexibility they needed to easily deploy apps customized to their own requirements. Another key factor in their vendor selection was the fact that MobileFrame’s solution has all of the management features needed for a successful deployment already built in.   Continue reading
