Great Northern Corporation Purchases MobileFrame Platform to Automate Inventory Tracking

Great Northern Corp. Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software as its Standard Mobility Platform.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(PRWEB)� Sept. 12, 2008 � MobileFrame, LLC (, the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that Great Northern Corp., one of the nation's largest independent producers of corrugated packaging, has chosen MobileFrame's award-winning enterprise mobility software Platform to automate tracking of pallet delivery to customer warehouses. 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.

Great Northern initially wrote a hard-coded custom Warehouse Management System application but quickly realized that such coding efforts were too costly and time consuming. Great Northern turned to MobileFrame for a platform that would allow them to rapidly create and deploy the many mobile applications their organization needs. MobileFrame will allow Great Northern to build all of its mobile applications on a single, fully integrated, 100% code free 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 Great Northern's backend system. The MobileFrame software operates on any .NET enabled handheld device, including PDA's, Smart Phones, 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 Great Northern to capture photographs, voice notes, documents, templates, logos, sketches, digital signatures, bar code scans, magnetic strip read outs, and RFID data then attach them directly into their mobile applications. Applications are stored in a library so administrators can quickly make changes whenever operational requirements change, enabling on-the-spot deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame's software affords Great Northern unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and deploy those applications to the field on-the-fly.

"Great Northern's IT group previously undertook the arduous task of developing a hard-coded custom mobile application," said Patricia Oswalt, MobileFrame's EVP of Sales. "After discovering how time consuming and costly such projects can become, they recognized that MobileFrame's comprehensive mobility platform presented a better approach to mobilizing their organization."
