The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution

Ameren selects MobileFrame to automate substation inspections

Ameren has chosen MobileFrame as their standard mobility platform, with their first project being to automate their substation inspections, preventative maintenance and facility repairs. Subsequently, Ameren has 200+ forms that they plan to automate across their various departments.  Prior to adopting MobileFrame, Ameren had 20-25 people who manually re-entered collected data from paper forms.  Ameren’s central IT department recognized that a platform solution, like MobileFrame, would result in a huge ROI when going mobile.  After a thorough evaluation of all solutions in the marketplace, Ameren chose MobileFrame for its ease of use, flexibility, and because MobileFrame provides a complete set of mobility tools that includes an integration wizard and mobile device management.

Although application development tools are commonplace, those tools require costly, time-consuming development to create business applications. Moreover, such business solutions tend to be inflexible, requiring expensive custom programming whenever business processes change. As business processes evolve, MobileFrame’s software provides users with unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and to make changes to those applications on-the-fly.  With its flexibility and ease of use, MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software will allow Ameren to quickly deploy their mobile inspection applications and make changes as needed, without time-consuming and expensive development efforts.

“Ameren thoroughly evaluated all available solutions, including internal custom development, before choosing to standardize on MobileFrame’s platform. Because Ameren will have a large user base and several applications across various departments, their IT group recognized that a mobility platform like ours would reduce time and expense, resulting in tremendous ROI. With over 200 forms that they plan to automate, MobileFrame’s platform is the perfect tool to allow them to quickly design, deploy and later administer their various mobile applications.”
