The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution

Navajo Tribal Utility Authority goes paperless with MobileFrame

Navajo Tribal Utility Authority has chosen MobileFrame to automate the readings of 37,000 meters. Navajo Tribal Utility Authority is using MobileFrame to replace their paper-based processes, which they found to be inefficient, time-consuming and error-prone. Navajo Tribal Utility Authority has realized the need for a robust mobility solution with a proven track record. After seeing MobileFrame’s full-featured platform in action, Navajo Tribal Utility Authority was confident that it would meet their needs. With MobileFrame, Navajo Tribal Utility will be able to utilize the latest mobility technologies to implement full-featured mobile meter reading applications using bar code and in the future plan to implement RFID tags, which easily integrates with their Access backend system.

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 Navajo Tribal Utility Authority to quickly deploy their weekly meter reading applications and make changes as needed, without time-consuming and expensive development efforts.

“MobileFrame’s 100% code-free mobility platform ensures mobile workers always have complete workflow available.  Navajo Tribal Utility Authority will achieve a high success rate and substantial ROI because our platform was built specifically for mobility and will eliminate their paper forms.”

— Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame CEO
