The use of mobile computing devices has reached a point of necessity for all sizes and types of business. Generation 1 has seen teams of workers utilizing SDK’s of multiple mobile operating systems. Although allow great detail and fine-grain control, developing mobile apps completely by hand—with different SDK’s for different operating systems is daunting—especially when they are linked to Enterprise systems. The prospect of hiring consultants, engineers, and technicians to oversee development, implementation, and maintenance of mobility applications was too costly and took too long.
Cross platform functionality was another road block for businesses trying to implement BYOD policies for cutting equipment costs and allowing users to work with more familiar devices and operating systems. The second generation of app developers tried to minimize the costs and complexities of these issues using MEAP’s (Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms), but the overhead was often still too much. By this time many companies had spent years of dreaming about how these simple mobile applications could do magical things for their businesses. Unfortunately, these dreams appeared to be shattered by harsh technical and budget constraint realities.
While many companies were grieving the loss of their mobile enablement fantasies, engineers and technophiles alike were complaining about how the mobile revolution took us two steps forward and one step back. Websites with tools and features had taken us away from hard disk software that needed installation, downloads, and constant updates to be fully functional; but yet here we are with our mobile devices downloading, installing, and updating again!
The mobile app revolution inspired the creation of mobile device versions for many websites, and some of the major social media sites lead the way. Businesses were then presented with an opportunity to allow their employees to use these already existing mobile sites for everything from communications and job tools to advertising.
Unfortunately, these sites were not designed for data integration, seamless transfers, or for big picture analytics across multiple sites, devices, and tools. It’s true that there are some great enterprise mobility productivity tools and apps scattered out there, but wouldn’t it be great if they all worked together without having to log in and out or having multiple windows/ screens open? Better yet, imagine if this integration could also be easily customized without having to hire a computer programmer, came with enterprise grade security and authorization, and tech support was taken care of. That’s only part of what Fonemine is offering.
Generation Now companies are looking to the cloud for mobility solutions they can afford to implement, customize, integrate, and analyze. Fonemine has four enterprise mobility applications built on their MobileForce Unified SaaS Apps Platform that use the power and advantage of the cloud to meet all of these needs for Enterprise Mobility
These mobility applications have been designed with the goal of allowing both internal and external users to access the information they need, when they need it, and on whatever device they need it on. MobileForce software can be customized and implemented in 30 days; no, consultants, programmers, or technical support personnel are needed, and security is handled using Fonemine’s Full Security Sandbox for the ultimate piece of mind. MobileForce application updates and changes are done in real time, meaning there is no waiting for important tools or vital data. MobileForce software is accessible and fully functional on all major mobile devices and operating systems, easily configured and customizable based on a large list of Widgets and third party plug ins, offers deep analytics accessible from any device, and incorporates high level security and technical support.
Additionally, if one of the four ready-made enterprise mobile apps can’t do everything a company needs, Fonemine’s MobileForce Unified SaaS app platform can be used to build a custom app in as little 25 minutes. Rather than follow a Generation one or two pricing structure that could be riddled with hidden and sometimes unpredictable costs entailing hiring consultants, engineers, and technical support, Fonemine has a setup fee and an annual subscription licensing fee which is scalable based on the number of products and licenses desired.
