Intermec Selects MobileFrame as its Standard Mobility Platform for the Department of Defense AIT-IV Contract

MobileFrame, the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that Intermec Inc. has selected MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM software as its Standard Mobility Platform for the Department of Defense AIT-IV Contract recently won by Intermec. The Department of Defense awarded Intermec an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract for Automatic Identification Technology (“AIT-IV contract”). Since 1988, Intermec has provided the Department of Defense and Federal government agencies with AIT technologies for asset tracking, inventory control, automated warehousing, and depot management. Intermec bid MobileFrame’s award-winning enterprise mobility software Platform to deliver a diverse suite of mobile applications for AIT-IV orders that may be placed by any authorized activity supporting the Department of Defense.

MobileFrame will provide the Department of Defense with a 100% code free mobility platform to standardize delivery of many diverse mobile applications. With secure, proprietary instant messaging, integrated intelligent networking, prioritized synchronization, remote device control and management, integrated GPS tracking and mapping, and remote software updates all built-in to one software platform, MobileFrame significantly streamlines mobile application development, deployment, and administration. Data collected in the field is stored on a handheld device and automatically synchronized to the Defense Department’s backend systems. The MobileFrame software operates in a mixed .NET enabled handheld device environment, including PDA’s, Smart Phones, Tablet PC’s or Laptops.

MobileFrame’s award-winning Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM software platform is an entirely self-contained mobility solution that provides full functionality out-of-the-box, with no custom programming, no third party mobile gateways, synchronization engines or SDK’s required. MobileFrame’s software allows the Department of Defense to capture photographs, voice notes, documents, templates, logos, sketches, digital signatures, bar code scans, magnetic strip read outs, RFID tags and advanced algorithmic functions, and attach them directly into their mobile applications. Applications are stored in a library so administrators can quickly make changes whenever operational requirements change, enabling on-the-spot deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame’s software affords the Defense Department unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and deploy those applications to the field on-the-fly.

“The AIT-IV contract award marks Intermec’s continued commitment as a trusted supplier to the Department of Defense,” said Pat Byrne, Intermec President & CEO. “It is a direct result of Intermec’s products and services and further solidifies our standing as a leading provider of the AIT solutions to the Department of Defense.”

“MobileFrame’s mobility system provides the Department of Defense the ability to automate all of their mobile field activities on one standard best of breed platform,” said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame’s CEO. “Intermec can now address all of the Department of Defense’s mobility needs without having to engage in time consuming custom coding projects. Standardizing on our platform allows Intermec to deliver turn-key solutions to all Federal agencies with unmatched levels of ROI.”
