CenturyLink was introduced to MobileForce Software, and a quick proof-of-concept proved its worth. The MobileForce Unification Engine provided out-of-the-box applications connectors to all the necessary backend systems. Defining the look and feel of the native clients in the cloud was effortless. Because MobileForce doesn’t require programming, the company was able to deploy a prototype at the sales kickoff in just days. This eliminated months of time that it would have taken using mobile application development platforms (MADP/MEAPs). To top it off, MobileForce is delivered as SaaS for fast time to value at an attractive price point.
The MobileForce Enterprise Container App component unifies and secures the company’s applications and information for its sales teams. Data in motion and data at rest is encrypted, and access to the company’s backend on-premises and cloud systems is handled by pre-integrated application connectors and secure APIs. The IT organization can retain control over corporate data, while avoiding the need to provision, administer, and manage every mobile device.
Users access the information they need with their native clients. Not only does this approach make better use of the devices’ capabilities, it also delivers greater user satisfaction. The reps and sales executives are much happier using their own phones and tablets, which helps increase adoption levels.
The MobileForce cloud platform component simplifies configuring and synthesizing apps. With a drag-and-drop interface, you can pull apps together in minutes and then immediately push changes to all devices. The MobileForce business process orchestration component lets you execute any sequence of workflows across cloud and premises-based applications. And the MobileForce analytics component delivers detailed information about users, device types, operating systems, and the content being accessed.
“Once we saw a blueprint for the solution, I knew we would implement it,” Kip said. “MobileForce was awesome. They are responsive, fast, and helped us quickly iterate a solution that we could show the reps and executives. Based on these capabilities, we built our business case to win over IT, get management approval, and move the solution forward.”
