Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation selects MobileFrame's
SuiteTM to automate their mobile
applications on one
user configurable mobility platform
MobileFrame Software is the only Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM
in the industry that
empowers enterprises to create and manage their own mobile applications.
San Jose, Calif. -- (Business Wire) - September 19, 2004 - MobileFrame, LLC (www.mobileframe.com),
the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announced that its Business
SuiteTM software has been selected
by Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation to mobilize their repair and maintenance work orders.
MobileFrame's software will be deployed on 70 Intermec 750 mobile computers, with plans to grow
to over 700 across Raymond Corporation internationally. After a long evaluation of many
competing solutions Raymond Handling selected MobileFrame software because of its ease of
use and its ability to rapidly deploy sophisticated mobile applications. MobileFrame's
revolutionary Smart ArchitectureTM
handles all software programming complexities in the background and permits novice computer
users with no IT background to instantly create and deploy sophisticated mobile applications
using point and click features.
Raymond Handling has closely monitored the mobility market for several years waiting for the
right solution to emerge. MobileFrame's Business Suite, a fully self contained solution,
became the obvious choice, because it provides a configurable application platform that
delivers full functionality out-of-the-box, with no custom programming, no third party mobile
gateways, synchronization engines or SDK's required. MobileFrame software allows Raymond
Handling to capture photographs, voice notes, documents, templates, logos, sketches, digital
signatures, bar code scans, magnetic strip read outs, RFID tags and advanced algorithmic
functions in the field, and attach them directly into their workflow. Raymond Handling's
applications are stored in a personal library so they can make changes on-the-fly whenever
businesses requirements change enabling on-the-spot development and deployment of a wide
variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame software affords customers unparalleled
flexibility to create mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any
mix of business processes, and deploy them on-the-fly.
"MobileFrame software is an incredibly powerful and innovative solution that will allow
our organization to realize the full benefits of automation without the time and expense
of custom coding whenever we need to deploy new mobile applications or make changes, "
said Steve Raymond, President of Raymond Handling. "MobileFrame software allows us to
deploy any mobile application in just a few minutes, so we can easily adapt to our
customers needs. Other solutions required us to engage in expensive, time consuming
custom programming to make even the smallest change. The benefits of MobileFrame's
solution will not only allow us to provide better service to our customers, but it
will allow us to service more customers per day."
"MobileFrame has created an entirely new space in mobile computing that empowers
customers in ways they never thought possible," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's
CEO and President. "Our software provides customers a solution that leverages and
extends their existing software systems, deploying real-time backend enterprise
data to any mobile application desired, resulting in new levels of service for
Raymond Handling's customers."
