MobileFrame's award-winning Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM software platform enables AOL to automate management of their asset tracking tasks throughout the entire lifecycle of an asset from procurement to maintenance to its disposition at end of life. The MobileFrame Asset Tracking Application incorporates a novel mobile scanning interface that permits AOL service technicians to scan equipment barcodes directly into AOL's back office systems which eliminates all manual input and typing errors that occur while identifying assets on the floor and provides instantaneous tracking of work orders throughout the AOL data center.

MobileFrame's software also allows AOL technicians 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 customers can make changes whenever businesses requirements change enabling on-the-spot development and deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications.
