Voss Equipment purchases MobileFrame for Field Force Automation

MobileFrame announces that Voss Equipment Inc., has chosen to standardize on MobileFrame to deploy and manage apps for their field force automation project.  Since opening in 1940, Voss Equipment, Inc.’s mission has been to provide quality material handling products and support services to their customers, forming partnerships with them – and with their dedicated employees – in the recognition that their company’s success is built on these relationships. Through their dedication to customer service and their commitment to their employees, Voss Equipment has created a legacy of longevity.

Industrial shelving and storage are at the heart of any material handling enterprise – but no two businesses have the same requirements. That’s why a one-size-fits-all attitude doesn’t work when dealing with warehouse storage solutions. At Voss Equipment, they’ve seen it all. They’ve designed storage systems for companies all over the Chicago area, dealing with everything from cold storage to oversized materials racking for construction businesses.  Their storage rack systems are designed to be highly configurable and versatile – no matter what product the customer has, Voss Equipment always provides a system that works for them. So when it came time to automate Voss Equipment’s field service operations, they wanted a system that carried that same flexibility and accommodation of unique customer requirements—MobileFrame hit the nail on the head.

Voss Equipment selected MobileFrame’s mobile app development platform to power their digital transformation and deliver custom mobile apps for rugged handhelds and the web. MobileFrame’s no-code approach was a good fit to tackle all of the apps they had long been considering deploying, including work orders, inventory, safety, quality inspections, incident reports, time keeping, field inspections and preventative maintenance. The Work Order app was Voss’s top priority because of the amount of accuracy needed to track labor and materials required to finish the job.  MobileFrame’s solution, having been deployed in the Material Handling industry for 18 years, was a perfect fit.

Voss also plans to deploy MobileFrame’s pre-built Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) apps to meet their evolving regulatory needs. Today their pre and post trip truck inspections are done on paper, and as with most fleets, they have to retain the records for Department of Transportation (DOT) audits. The apps are easily customized and require no coding to make changes to them.

“Material Handling is a field MobileFrame knows very well.  We first combined inventory management with field service work order mobile automation 18 years ago. Our customers have enjoyed the benefits of immediate invoicing and daily end of day truck inventory replenishment for many years, driving huge ROI to their bottom-line,” said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame CEO. “Our material handling customers eliminate thousands upon thousands of paper forms, enabling more efficient operations with far less people.”
