The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Performance Contracting Group is one of the leading specialty contracting companies in the United States. PCG is a large commercial construction company with roughly 7,000 employees based in over 50 offices across the country. The company provides a wide range of quality services and products to the industrial, commercial and non-residential markets.
PCG wanted to find a way to eliminate paper data collection in the field and manual data entry in the office. The company calculated the number of hours spent every year on manually entering time card data into their labor contract system and knew there had to be a better way. They knew that eliminating the manual data entry for this task alone would result in a significant return on investment.
After researching a number of enterprise mobile application development platform companies, PCG concluded that MobileFrame was the only vendor that could fully meet their requirements. MobileFrame software allows customers to deploy custom applications across all major operating systems and all devices with no coding required, which made PCG’s vendor decision easy and clear cut. MobileFrame allows the PCG team to design and deploy applications in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional custom coding tools. Continue reading
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.

How many vendors did you look into before you decided to move forward with MobileFrame?
His answer, said it all… “I don’t know how many but we looked all over the globe for a mobile platform, and didn’t find what we were looking for until we found MobileFrame.”
That begged the question, why MobileFrame?
His answer was pretty telling. He said that after doing some investigation, all of the other “Code-Free” development environments may have looked easy at first glance but were just smoke and mirrors when it came down to crunch time.
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:
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.
It’s been a very busy year so far, we are almost into February and we’re getting just getting out our first blog post! Fortunately we have been hard at work planning our content schedule and strategy around the blog for 2010, and have decided to add a new section to the blog specifically focusing on Mobile Education. With all of the competing technologies, platforms, operating systems, carriers, it can be difficult to separate marketing hype from actual fact. Our aim is to focus on one topic every couple of weeks, and try to shed more light on each particular subject.
Not surprisingly for this week we’ve decided to focus on : What a Mobile Computing Platform is, and why it matters Continue reading
