The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution
Los Gatos, CA (January 30, 2015) – It might seem odd that a company that recycles over 600 tons of paper every month would want to operate a paperless office.
The trouble with paper isn’t just its environmental footprint; it is also inefficient at moving information and has a high cost of handling. In order to grow the business, Phoenix Recycling focused on a mobile project with the following goals:

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.

Los Gatos, CA (September 25, 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 Corpac Steel has selected their Inventory Tracking Application.
Corpac is a global supplier and trader of pipe and steel products and services, specializing in line pipe, standard pipe, OCTG, Conduit and structural products. They receive pipe from their fabricators and need to know what pipe was received and the associated information about that pipe. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, Corpac was collecting this inventory data with pen and paper. Corpac Steel knew that keeping track of assets and inventory is necessary to ensure timely maintenance and proper supply, but tracking so many varied assets and items on paper presented a lot of challenges. With a paper-based system, the data error rate is high due to the amount of data collected on a variety of paper forms. They found this process to be time consuming and inefficient, and knew it was time for a change. Continue reading
Los Gatos, CA (August 16, 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 Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has chosen MobileFrame’s Configurable Mobile Application TM for their Mailroom Proof of Delivery requirements.
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of cancer and related diseases. Dana-Farber receives several packages each day by FedEx and UPS into their mail room, which their employees must then deliver to the right person and track that the delivery was completed successfully. Prior to implementing MobileFrame’s Mailroom POD Application, this was being done on clipboard and paper. MobileFrame’s software will be used for many apps, but the next one on the list is to deploy a physical inventory count application. As with most companies, Dana-Farber has many supply cabinets across their buildings where employees can take what they need to do their jobs. Of course that means that over time the supplies need to be replenished, so the app will provide summary reports to the right people. Continue reading
Regulatory Compliance…..it’s a big issue that can’t be ignored. No matter what kind of utility company you are, from nuclear power to gas distribution, electric or water you all share some common challenges. The nature of the business calls for large teams of mobile employees who conduct inspections, maintenance and repairs in the field. Most companies are still collecting that data on clipboards and paper, which means the office staff has to manually enter the data into your business systems. This manual process is error prone, requires excessive labor costs and even worse, it causes delays in getting access to the data needed to stay in compliance.
The key to solving this problem is to go paperless with a mobile app solution. When evaluating solutions, look for a platform approach that can be used for all apps across all departments instead of trying to manage a variety of different vendors. Another high priority should be to select a vendor that offers apps that are integrated tightly together. For example, consider this:
Los Gatos, CA (June 29, 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 the City of Chicago Department of Water has chosen MobileFrame for their Water Inspection Application.
The City of Chicago Department of Water, which is responsible for delivering a billion gallons of fresh water to the residents of Chicago and surrounding communities, switched from their previous highly limited solution to MobileFrame because of its flexibility and ease of use.
The City of Chicago Department of Water has some very significant responsibilities when it comes to maintaining clean drinking water for its citizens. Its inspection staff is responsible for performing the necessary assessments to ensure compliance with their current water standards, as well as removing the waste water and storm runoff from the streets of Chicago via their sewer system and delivering the effluent for treatment to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. This is all accomplished through a network of purification plants, tunnels, pumping stations, water mains, sewer mains, valves and structures that require constant upkeep and maintenance. MobileFrame’s water inspection application has allowed them to collect their inspection data electronically, which has significantly improved this process by ensuring accuracy and efficiency.

Los Gatos, CA (June, 14, 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 Indianapolis Power and Light has chosen MobileFrame’s application to eliminate the paper forms used for manhole inspections.
IPL is a leading provider of electric services to more than 470,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in Indianapolis and other central Indiana communities. IPL needed to eliminate the paper forms used for manhole inspections, increase efficiencies and to make their data easily accessible to regulatory agencies. Because the software is specifically designed for mobility and fully customizable, IPL knew that MobileFrame would be a perfect fit.
Since manholes are considered the windows to the condition of America’s pipelines as well as a critical access point for storm water runoff and pollutants, it is very important to maintain their structural integrity. Proactive manhole assessment is a key component of any collection system asset management program. IPL found out that using a clipboard and paper to collect data, then having to aggregate hundreds of paper forms to prioritize rehabilitation was very inefficient. This is when MobileFrame stepped in. Continue reading
Los Gatos, CA (March 8, 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 Terumo Medical Corporation has chosen MobileFrame’s consignment inventory tracking applications. Terumo Medical is a sister company to MicroVention, a rapidly growing medical device company that is pioneering the development of catheter-based technologies for the endovascular treatment of peripheral and cerebral vascular diseases.
Like MicroVention, Terumo Medical employs sales reps who are responsible for conducting inventory counts at various hospitals where their products are used. These reps need to reconcile the amount of physical inventory at the site with the records in their JD Edwards backend system. Prior to implementing MobileFrame, the sales reps recorded these inventory counts on paper forms then had to reconcile the figures against the actual inventory by reviewing the reports generated. Terumo Medical’s office staff then manually entered this data into their business systems, which resulted in human error and excessive costs spent on labor hours. Continue reading
