SC Johnson Selects MobileFrame Software To Automate Their Quality Assurance Retail Store Inspections
SC Johnson Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software
As Its Standard Mobility Platform
San Jose, Calif. -- January 8, 2007 - MobileFrame, LLC (www.mobileframe.com), the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that SC Johnson has selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM software platform to automate their Quality Assurance Retail Store Inspections. Emkat Inc., a solutions provider based in Minneapolis, MN, worked with MobileFrame and Symbol Technologies to provide an end-to-end solution. SC Johnson Quality Assurance Representatives visit SC Johnson's retail customer stores to randomly remove products from the store shelves and inspect the packaging and labeling of their products. The Inspectors scan the UPC barcode of each product, enter the manufacturer's date code and record any product defects on their HHP Dolphin 9500 mobile computers. They return to their local office at the end of the week and upload their data to a MobileFrame server located in the main SC Johnson business office. All of the data gathered in the field is exported to various Excel spreadsheets that track overall product quality. MobileFrame's ability to send alert messages and emergency service requests to the quality inspectors in the field provides SC Johnson a real-time interactive field inspection system.
MobileFrame's award-winning Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM software platform is an entirely self-contained mobility solution that provides full functionality out-of-the-box, with no custom programming, no third party mobile gateways, synchronization engines or SDK's required. MobileFrame's software allows users to capture photographs, voice notes, documents, templates, logos, sketches, digital signatures, bar code scans, magnetic strip read outs, RFID tags and advanced algorithmic functions, and attach them directly into their mobile applications. Applications are stored in a library so business users can quickly make changes whenever operational requirements change, enabling on-the-spot development and deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame software affords SC Johnson unparalleled flexibility to create mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and deploy those applications to their mobile personnel on-the-fly.
The MobileFrame solution allowed SC Johnson to automate their Quality Assurance Inspection System on a single mobility platform. With integrated intelligent networking, prioritized synchronization, remote device configuration and management, and remote software updates all built-in to one software platform, MobileFrame significantly streamlines mobile application development, deployment, and administration. Data collected in the field is stored on a handheld device and automatically synchronized to the central office when wireless or wired access becomes available. The MobileFrame software operates on any .NET enabled handheld device, including Pocket PC PDA's, Tablet PC's or Laptops.
"SC Johnson has the benefit of a very robust and highly scalable system, without the need to engage the services of numerous software providers," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "MobileFrame's software is a complete self-contained mobility system that allows customers to create, deploy and manage their entire suite of mobile application projects."
