National Fruit Product Company, Inc. Selects MobileFrame Software To Automate Their Oracle Inventory Management System
National Fruit Product Company, Inc. Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software As Its Standard Mobility Platform
San Jose, Calif. -- July 24, 2007 - MobileFrame, LLC (www.mobileframe.com), the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that the National Fruit Product Company, Inc. has selected MobileFrame's software platform to automate their backend Oracle Inventory Management system. MobileFrame software enables National Fruit to track inventory from the point at which it is received in their warehouse until the product is shipped to National Fruit's customers. MobileFrame software stores the inventory data and business logic on Intermec CK31 devices, and synchronizes bi-directional data to National Fruit's Oracle backend system.
Using PDAs running MobileFrame software, warehouse personnel record receipt all manufactured products by scanning the 5 digit identification code on the product label. The number of cases received, and the building in which the product is being stored are also entered into the PDA. All of this data is automatically synchronized to the company's Oracle backend inventory management system. This mobile application eliminates all of the errors inherent in the paper-based inventory control system previously used by National Fruit and provides accurate, real-time information so the company knows the exact status and location of its finished products.
MobileFrame's solution allowed National Fruit to automate all of their inventory management and tracking operations on a single mobility platform without having to write a single line of code. 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.
"Prior to installing MobileFrame's software National Fruit had a paper-based inventory tracking process that provided no real-time visibility into their manufacturing operations," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "The ability to automate their entire inventory management and tracking operations and provide real-time visibility of all products produced dramatically increased the company�s operational efficiency. MobileFrame's flexibility allows any manufacturing operation to be fully automated in a matter of weeks without requiring any expensive, time-consuming coding."
