The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
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. They not only wanted to upgrade their app, but they also wanted to automate many other processes across the company. 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
Contra Costa County, the ninth most populated county in the state of California, has chosen MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Platform to automate California’s Paternity Declaration Application which collects the signatures of unwed parents at the time of a new born child’s birth. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, when a baby was born to an unwed mother, Contra Costa County had to have a form completed that listed both parents. The data on that form is completed by an estimated 2500 birthing clerks in over 700 birthing centers around California. Contra Costa County found this manual entry process to be timely and inefficient. In many cases, it would take the County months to get these completed forms back. MobileFrame’s 100% Code-Free Platform will implement these records into the County’s Vital Records (SQL) database.
EuroExpress has selected a version of MobileFrame’s proof of delivery application. EuroExpress, a Europian based organization of haulers and couriers, will be using MobileFrame’s home delivery application for truck pickup inventory from a warehouse, then delivery and assembly of the furniture at the customer’s location. Prior to adopting MobileFrame’s platform, EuroExpress’ system for collecting such data was proven costly and ineffective. This is expected to be the first phase of a large deployment that will be rolled out as new warehouse distribution centers are loaded. With MobileFrame, EuroExpress will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile proof of delivery applications that closely integrates with their existing Knighted Home Delivery backend system, guaranteeing them a huge ROI.
Navajo Tribal Utility Authority has chosen MobileFrame to automate the readings of 37,000 meters. Navajo Tribal Utility Authority is using MobileFrame to replace their paper-based processes, which they found to be inefficient, time-consuming and error-prone. Navajo Tribal Utility Authority has realized the need for a robust mobility solution with a proven track record. After seeing MobileFrame’s full-featured platform in action, Navajo Tribal Utility Authority was confident that it would meet their needs. With MobileFrame, Navajo Tribal Utility will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile meter reading applications using bar code and in the future plan to implement RFID tags, which easily integrates with their Access backend system.

Here at MobileFrame we are pretty good at solving the problem of paper in the field. In this case we had a customer come to us with a very simple yet, annoying problem.
Here’s the current process:
2. Ask for feedback from the experts….your END USERS – Don’t forget to ask for feedback from the field workers that will actually be using the mobile application. It doesn’t matter what the application does if the mobile worker isn’t able to use it successfully. Simple is better, so plan ahead.
3. Take the time to train your team – Not everyone is as familiar with technology as we’d like. Someone needs to help others understand how to operate their new device (even how to turn it on). Going from a paper work order with a 2 way radio to a mobile computer with a wireless work order system is a paradigm shift so plan ahead. Even better, create a user guide for them.

Rapid Application Development Environments
This topic always generates a lot of discussion, so I’m sure this time will be no different. First let’s start with the definition.
Rapid Application Development – refers to a type of software development methodology that involves techniques like iterative development and software prototyping. Essentially it is a development style that favors incremental development with constant feedback from the end user. This development process is repeated until the application has been perfected and meets the needs of the user. Many organizations have found that Rapid Application Development or RAD is a fantastic idea, but is requires advanced tools to make this approach a reality. This is where companies like MobileFrame come into the picture.
In order to “Rapidly Develop Applications” it becomes necessary to provide functionality out of the box, to make the development effort easier.
