The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution

Forbes Energy Services Drills into the Competition with MobileFrame’s Work Order App

Los Gatos, CA (December 7, 2011) – MobileFrame LLC., the leading provider of Configurable Mobile Applications™ enterprise software, announces that Forbes Energy Services, an independent oilfield services contractor, has chosen the MobileFrame Platform to replace their previous backend system to automate their work orders. Forbes Energy is an independent oilfield services contractor that provides a broad range of drilling and production related services to oil and natural gas companies.

Forbes Energy began evaluating mobile solutions because their 1,000 technicians were collecting all work order data on handwritten, paper forms. This resulted in 5,000 pieces of paper per day being turned into the office. This in turn required 20 to 30 clerks to manually enter the data into their business systems, resulting in a two week invoicing delay.   Forbes Energy Services needed to find a solution to help organize and ease the distribution and completion of their work orders, and found that MobileFrame’s 100% Code-Free Platform was a perfect fit to benefitting technicians as well as dispatchers. With MobileFrame’s Work Order Application, Forbes Energy will save time and money by automating and eliminating paper-based processes, resulting in a huge ROI.

Some key benefits to MobileFrame’s Work Order Application include:

  • Dispatchers can create, assign, review and update work orders based upon the status, date, location, technician or customer.
  • Technicians can create, edit, review and annotate work orders.
  • Improve Customer Satisfaction. Improve service levels to customers by providing instant visibility into customer and work order histories, parts availability and delivery schedules
  • Service Compliance. Increase data accuracy and ensure compliance with proper field service processes by guiding technicians through best practices
  • Performance Data. Capture and review work performance data including service time, tasks performed, part numbers, expenses and more
  • Parts and Inventory Tracking. Searchable parts list includes quantity of inventory on hand and on order.
  • And much more….

A successful mobility project requires more than just applications – it requires tools for development, deployment, remote device management and maintenance. MobileFrame’s complete enterprise mobility solution has allowed Forbes Energy Services to easily create, deploy and administer their Work Order Applicaton system. The solution also allows them to automate every department across the enterprise.   Applications can be deployed on any device, all with no custom programming required. MobileFrame’s Smart Architecture™ and intuitive system eliminates time-consuming and expensive custom coding projects. With MobileFrame’s platform, an application written one time will perform consistently across all devices in Forbes Energy Services’ organization.

Forbes Energy Services has unique requirements that drive significant ROI into their business operations. While some software vendors can deliver applications with some of the features that their organization requires out of the box, MobileFrame’s Field Service software solutions will meet all of their needs both now and in the future as their business grows and evolves.
