Hunter Engineering chooses MobileFrame for field service automation

Hunter Engineering has purchased MobileFrame to automate their field service operations.  Hunter Engineering designs manufactures and sells a wide range of passenger car and truck service equipment including wheel balancers, alignment racks and garage lifts.  Although Hunter’s technicians are independent contractors, Hunter’s goal was to remove all paper-based processes involved in customer visits for installation of new equipment, warranty work and/or any additional type of servicing.  With MobileFrame, Hunter Engineering will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile applications that are closely integrated with each contractor’s instance of QuickBooks and also Hunter’s corporate office QuickBooks as well.  This has allowed Hunter to begin offering a backup service to their contractors, thus uncovering a new revenue stream.

Hunter Engineering did a very thorough investigation of all available mobile technologies, including all the big names, ultimately selecting MobileFrame for its flexibility, sophistication and ease of use.  With MobileFrame, Hunter Engineering will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile field service applications that give them greater visibility into what is happening in their customer base.

When Selecting Mobile Solutions, don’t leave any ROI on the Table.

Enterprise Mobility ROIWhen investigating mobile software solutions every organization has to ask themselves the age old question: “Can I find something off the shelf to solve this problem?”

I invite you to consider the merits of evaluating an alternative approach before spending money on a solution.

PROBLEM: Here is where the problem lies; no two organizations even within a specific market operate in exactly the same way.  The associated business logic that has made your organization successful can’t be incorporated into a boxed solution intended to fit the masses.

  • Project Publisher.  With the new Project Publisher, Administrators can “publish” (export) entire Projects including mobile applications, enterprise data (static and dynamic), mobile workers, etc. This allows Administrators to move projects across servers from development to production and/or create complete backups of their projects.

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.
