The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Leading Construction Contracting Firm Chooses Comprehensive Enterprise Mobility Platform to Enable Real-Time Business Decisions from the Field.
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

Running a dynamic DSD field force is complex. Today’s DSD applications must allow companies to quickly react to marketplace changes, customer demands and new regulatory policies. With this fast pace of change, customers simply have to be nimble and they need the power to make changes to their DSD apps as soon as the market dictates it. The ability to make changes to apps with no custom coding and to deploy those changes to the field is how a well run DSD business should operate. Legacy apps require customers to go to the vendor to request changes, but this strategy does not allow for speed to market.
Another huge factor in a successful DSD operation is to give management instant access to data as soon as its collected in the field. Most companies have not yet implemented the technology to make data readily available to their management; these enterprises are operating with large blind spots, making it harder for management to take advantage of new opportunities in a fast-paced business climate. The solution to the problem is real-time web portals. Continue reading

Founded in 1987, Horizon-Bradco specializes in selling and maintaining the highest quality commercial and industrial food preparation equipment to supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, bakeries and institutional operations along the eastern seaboard.

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
Regulatory Compliance…..it’s a big issue that can’t be ignored. No matter what kind of utility company you are, from nuclear power to gas distribution, electric or water you all share some common challenges. The nature of the business calls for large teams of mobile employees who conduct inspections, maintenance and repairs in the field. Most companies are still collecting that data on clipboards and paper, which means the office staff has to manually enter the data into your business systems. This manual process is error prone, requires excessive labor costs and even worse, it causes delays in getting access to the data needed to stay in compliance.
The key to solving this problem is to go paperless with a mobile app solution. When evaluating solutions, look for a platform approach that can be used for all apps across all departments instead of trying to manage a variety of different vendors. Another high priority should be to select a vendor that offers apps that are integrated tightly together. For example, consider this:
