Rug Doctor to use MobileFrame for route accounting and DSD

Rug Doctor has chosen MobileFrame to automate their DSD and Route Accounting.  Prior to adopting MobileFrame, Rug Doctor employed a hard-coded custom application running on DOS-based Symbol PDT 3100’s.  That application was developed in 2001 and Rug Doctor had trouble with it from the beginning.  Using MobileFrame, Rug Doctor plans to deploy a traditional DSD/Route Accounting application that allows their drivers to capture data about deliveries of product to stores, manage their supplies and machine inventories, and print out invoices at each stop.  After evaluating several mobile platforms, and considering offshore custom development, Rug Doctor chose MobileFrame for its flexibility, ease of use, and competitive price point.
