AGY Purchases MobileFrame Software To Track Their Work In Progress Operations
AGY Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software As Its Standard Mobility Platform
San Jose, Calif. -- September 28, 2007 - MobileFrame, LLC (www.mobileframe.com), the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that AGY, a manufacturer of fiberglass products for a broad range of markets including Automotive, Construction, Defense, Electronics, Aerospace, Marine, and Recreation, has chosen MobileFrame's award-winning enterprise mobility software platform to track and trace work-in-process on the manufacturing factory floor. Used by a wide variety of commercial, retail, industrial, federal and municipal organizations, MobileFrame's enterprise software has repeatedly swept MobileVillage's Mobile Star Awards year after year for product innovation and customer satisfaction.
AGY has 300 machines used to manufacture fiberglass, each of which has 240 associated barcodes on it. Users must be able to scan each barcode and hit the backend database in real time to return values. Data is transmitted to Wonderware's Equipment Operation module. AGY's previous deployment of a custom application was unable to meet AGY's needs, so they turned to MobileFrame. Our solution allows AGY to automate its work in process applications on a single fully integrated 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 warehouse is stored on a handheld device and automatically synchronized to a AGY back office server in real time to return values. The MobileFrame software operates on any .NET enabled handheld device, including Pocket PC PDA's, Tablet PC's or Laptops.
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 AGY 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 AGY can quickly make changes whenever operational requirements change, enabling on-the-spot deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame's software affords AGY unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and deploy those applications to their Mobile Franchisees on-the-fly.
"Their previous custom-coded application failed to meet their requirements," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "Our Smart ArchitectureTM, which handles all software programming complexities in the background, was a natural choice because it permits AGY to quickly deploy sophisticated mobile applications by means of a user-friendly point and click Graphical User Interface."
