Performance Contracting GroupMobileFrame, the leading enterprise mobility company, today announced that Performance Contracting Group (PCG) has selected MobileFrame as their mobility platform standard across the enterprise.

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
