As mobility becomes a central priority for many enterprises, CIOs are focusing on delivering mobile applications which both foster innovation and can revolutionize business processes, while also meeting the high-performance end users’ expectations already established by consumer-grade mobile technologies. At the same time, organizations need mobile applications which offer enterprise-class scalability, security, reliability and manageability, and which are at the same time built for rapid and agile deployment. Although every enterprise has its own distinct sets of business and IT goals, security requirements and user needs, these factors represent a universal enterprise requirement.
By deploying a mobility application that encompasses all their requirements, organizations can transform their workforces into highly efficient mobile teams and also improve their core business processes. Realizing all of this, as well as the strategic importance of mobile applications, Fonemine’s MobileForce apps deliver a unique blend of enterprise-grade capabilities and innovation, built from the ground up with enterprise app integration in-built, to help organizations implement a successful mobile strategy.
With its MobileForce applications, Fonemine is setting new standards in today’s mobility technology with an unmatched array of features to facilitate organizations’ seamless transitions to mobility. Designed to address the needs of progressive businesses, Fonemine’s innovative mobile applications bring business-changing results, better workforce productivity, and maximum return of investment. MobileForce unified apps deliver high usability and allow enterprise sales, marketing, and service teams to perform their specific work tasks in the most efficient and accurate way while on the go.
What differentiates MobileForce apps is their Unified model – the inherent capability to integrate multiple enterprise systems into a single app interface.
Let’s explain this through a following example. If an organization has already deployed a mobile version of one or more of their enterprise systems, such as ERP or CRM, they have done this through separate software vendors who in some case provide mobile app versions of their solutions. In most cases, enterprises need to mobilize more than a couple of business critical and line of business apps to support their mobile teams, including many systems that have no mobile apps—and put them into job-specific work-flows without the need for continual app-switching. Other systems which are a must for today’s mobile and connected worker include content systems like SharePoint and Documentum, or collaboration systems like Jive and chatter; but deploying this mix of mobile applications separately is not only costly and complex, but also ineffective and confusing to the end user.
From the users’ point of view, switching between many different apps to consume or edit info takes a lot out of the purported efficiency and increased productivity promised by these mobile solutions. Burdening employees with multiple apps which all have their own security and administrative settings and user experience is creating a disappointing user experience. Issues of this type only multiply if an organization decides to scale up in terms of the number of applications used, because most mobility solutions are simply not flexible enough to be customized accordingly.
The conclusion is that enterprise mobile users have to have a real-time access to multiple corporate applications on their mobile devices in order to do their jobs effectively and this is best achieved by combining all enterprise systems and content in a single, unified control app. Fonemine’s MobileForce apps seamlessly integrate existing enterprise apps and data, and combine them with rich library of interactive widgets and third party plug-ins to provide enterprise users with a secure, unified app interface. MobileForce apps allow for adding new features without programing – in fact, it is as simple as a tap of a finger. Organizations can easily customize the app based on their needs, and users always get the new features when they open the application without having to repeatedly reinstall new versions.
Another issue with mobile applications is that they generally don’t support all mobile devices which enterprise employees are using for work. This is a large handicap for many organizations, especially if an organization has implemented a BYOD policy allowing its employees to bring any of a variety of devices. Mobile enterprise application needs to be accessible equally well through all these different mobile devices, including iPad, iPhone, Windows and Android mobiles, with consistent high-quality user experience as part of the service. MobileForce applications deliver the solution by being completely native to devices used by any mobile workforce—and delivered to those devices via the Cloud. By providing native user interfaces for the exact device, as well as inherent customizability and the richness of a custom built app, Fonemine’s mobility solutions are a great fit for a modern enterprise that wants to deploy a mobile application which will address both their current and future mobility needs.
