Mobile App Development for Business
With roughly 75% of the U.S. workforce being mobile, odds are you have mobile workers within your organization. Like us, I am sure that you are seeing the need for technologies that connect your mobile workers to your corporate resources. We refer to this need as “Mobile Worker Empowerment”. Your mobile workers are on the front line and as such have the first and possibly greatest need for a broad range of information including product, pricing and inventory, among others.
Regardless of what you sell or service, mobile workers have a couple things in common. By definition, mobile workers traditionally have limited access to corporate information. Take a typical field technician for example. She starts her day in the office checking email and confirming appointments. After loading her truck with parts inventory, she is off to the first service call. From this point forward she is on her own. No access to corporate email updates, technical manuals, knowledge bases or inventory levels. Her only connection to corporate is the single voice of the dispatcher who is able to provide some information related to new or cancelled service calls but nothing directly related to accomplishing the task at hand, repairing a broken piece of equipment. Fortunately, mobile technology is now accessible to everyone regardless of company size or revenue level and there are great financial and process gains to be had through automation. With mobile automation that same technician can get real time email access, download the latest technical bulletin or review electronic repair manuals.
The rapid growth of wireless data services is providing new opportunities for organizations to empower their mobile workers. Now, critical information can go with your workforce anytime, anywhere. This enables organizations with mobile workforces to improve productivity and gain operational advantages. Areas of opportunity include:
- Field Service
- Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)
- Maintenance Work Orders
- Rounds and Readings
- Parts Management
- Physical Inventory/audit
- Field Sales Automation
- Proof of Delivery
