Medallion Cabinetry Inc. Selects MobileFrame Software To Automate Proof of Delivery System
Medallion Cabinetry, Inc. Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software
As Its Standard Mobility Platform
San Jose, Calif. -- January 19, 2007 - MobileFrame, LLC (www.mobileframe.com), the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that Medallion Cabinetry, Inc. has selected MobileFrame's Business SuiteTM software platform to automate their Proof of Delivery System. Emkat Inc., a solutions provider based in Minneapolis, MN, worked with MobileFrame and Symbol Technologies to provide an end-to-end solution. Using the built-in capability of MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile Applications Software Platform, Medallion was able to implement and deploy a sophisticated proof of delivery application in three weeks from start to finish. Using this application, installed on a Symbol MC70 hand held terminal, Medallion delivery drivers scan the barcodes attached to the cabinet products as they are offloaded from the truck at the time of delivery. The customer's signature is then captured on the MC70 to verify delivery of the products. All data collected at the time of delivery is uploaded via a cellular wide area network (WAN) connection to a MobileFrame server located in Medallion's corporate office. In addition, MobileFrame's ability to send alert messages and emergency service requests to delivery drivers provides Medallion a real-time interactive proof of delivery field service 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's software affords Medallion Cabinets 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 Medallion to automate all of their proof of delivery field service operations 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.
"The Medallion Cabinetry Proof of Delivery Application is a perfect example of the flexibility built into the MobileFrame software platform," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "Our customers all have totally unique business logic and application workflow requirements that would require several months to develop using conventional technology. MobileFrame's point and click Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM platform allowed the Medallion application to be deployed in less than 3 weeks from start to finish without requiring any coding."
