The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
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:

Los Gatos, CA (June 29, 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 City of Chicago Department of Water has chosen MobileFrame for their Water Inspection Application.
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.

Los Gatos, CA (June 29, 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 Xpera Group, a litigation support services company, has chosen MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile Application TM for their field inspection solution.
Xpera Group specializes in expert witness search and placement solutions for prominent law firms throughout the country. They inspect homes as they are being built to ensure that the homes don’t have construction defects. If a defect is discovered on site, Xpera needs to take photos and notify the construction foreman so they can correct the problem before the area is covered up. In order to do all of this in a timely and efficient manner, Xpera knew they needed an electronic, mobile solution to eliminate all of their paper based forms. This is where MobileFrame’s Platform came in.
With MobileFrame, Xpera is able to do both Quality Inspections and Site Inspections for the forensic work, take photos and field notes, and then import that data into their existing business systems. Continue reading
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
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
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. Since that time, C.A.R.S. has created long lasting and successful partnerships with many of Southern California’s premier auto dealers. They are the number one provider of auto detailing, paintless dent repair, alloy wheel repair, paint touch-up, windshield repair, interior repair, interior repair, paint protection film, window tint, auto body repair and more in Southern California.
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
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

Los Gatos, CA (January 31, 2012) – MobileFrame, LLC Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Enterprise Software Solutions, provider of the only cross-device mobile application development platform that requires no custom coding to develop custom mobile apps, announces that Great Western Steel, an international steel salvage and recycling company, has chosen MobileFrame software to allow workers to track the amount of steel loaded onto each truck electronically instead of on pen and paper.
Prior to MobileFrame, Great Western Steel was using clipboard and paper to record their inventory, scrap metal amounts and which truck was hauling which load. This paper-based process was inefficient and prone to human error. The company was using many different paper forms to collect different types of information about their assets. With MobileFrame’s single solution, all paper is eliminated and data is collected electronically. Once the data is collected it is stored in a central database, which allows management to have instant access to the data and make real-time decisions on how to run the company. Assets are then better managed and employees are much more productive. Continue reading
