The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution

Horizon-Bradco is Prepared for Success with MobileFrame’s Field Service Applications

Los Gatos, CA (September 28, 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 Horizon-Bradco has chosen MobileFrame to automate their work order scheduling and dispatch.

Founded in 1987, Horizon-Bradco specializes in selling and maintaining the highest quality commercial and industrial food preparation equipment to supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, bakeries and institutional operations along the eastern seaboard. Prior to implementing the MobileFrame solution, Horizon-Bradco was doing these work orders on pen and paper. They found this to be time-consuming and inefficient.

Horizon-Bradco’s field service technicians are faced with increasingly complex tasks and customers with high service level expectations. They knew they would need the right service information on demand, real-time while in the field. Their customers expect instant and accurate responses to requests for service; they want immediate access to all relevant job information and they demand high levels of performance from their servicers. To deliver the performance their customers expect and keep their organization on par with competitors, Horizon-Bradco’s field service technicians must be armed with the right information at the exact point of time needed to help turn every customer interaction into a satisfying experience for the customer and a business revenue generating opportunity. After researching other solutions, Horizon-Bradco knew that the MobileFrame solution would be a perfect fit.

MobileFrame provides Horizon-Bradco with a variety of benefits, including:

  • Work Orders:  Dispatchers can create, assign, review and update work orders based upon the status, date, location, technician or customer.
  • Automatic Alerts:  Alerts can be sent based on any desired condition, such as status of a work order.
  • Take photos and collect signatures:  Technicians can take photos and collect signatures; automatically tagged with GPS and date/time stamps for accuracy.
  • Parts and Inventory Tracking: Searchable parts list includes quantity of inventory on hand and on order.
  • And much more

In today’s mobile world, an enterprise mobility solution can mean the difference between being an unknown vs. being best in class in your industry. A true bi-directional mobile application creates a more efficient work force, reduces errors and increases customer satisfaction. Extra money and time are often spent on the development of these applications needlessly. MobileFrame’s Smart Architecture™ and intuitive setup eliminates costly and time consuming custom coding. MobileFrame’s work order scheduling and dispatch with field service applications will allow Horizon-Bradco to easily integrate with their backend system for a near seamless deployment overnight.

“MobileFrame’s field service mobile applications simplify Horizon-Bradco’s service activities and data entry, enhancing their field service efficiency and improving their bottom line. They also give them the ability to make intelligent decisions that boost performance and customer satisfaction”.
