Mission Impossible – From Idea to Deployment within 2 Weeks

Five warehouses, over 240 different product lines, and one bi-directional integration with Oracle 11g to maintain current inventory.  That was the set of circumstances, and the task at hand was to deploy a custom solution to manage physical inventory, across the enterprise.  Oh yeah, and it had to be implemented within two weeks.

Mission Impossible?

Not for MobileFrame.

This was the mission for a recent client.  Inventory data was held in their Oracle database yet the physical inventory was spread across 5 warehouses.  Inventory tracking was done on paper forms, resulting in time consuming errors so there were definitely efficiencies to be gained by going mobile.  This required a bi-directional custom application to interact with the existing database.

Mobile Inspections Made Easy

Inspections are a part of literally dozens of different industries, from public safety to property management to construction.  This naturally means that there are numerous needs that must be fulfilled by inspection forms.  Checklists, comments and signatures are nearly universal, while photos, conditional checklists and specialized workflow may be needed to send the results to different governing entities.

Although, for all their differences, one thing is for sure; inspections happen all over the place.  Apartment complexes, garages, hangars, constructions sites, maintenance rooms, kitchens, sewers – the list goes on and on.  And often these remote locations are in different places every day creating the need to collect data from multiple locations.

Terumo Medical Reinvents their Inventory Counts with MobileFrame’s Consignment Tracking Solution

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

The Ding Doctor Touches Up Their Repair Estimate System with MobileFrame

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
