The City of Davenport Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software As Its Standard Mobility Platform

MobileFrame Software is the only Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM in the industry that empowers enterprises to create and manage their own mobile applications

San Jose, Calif. -- July 14, 2006 - MobileFrame, LLC (, the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that the City of Davenport has selected the MobileFrame Business SuiteTM software platform to automate the City's Inventory Management. The City conducted an extensive review of competitive products before selecting MobileFrame's award-winning Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM software platform. MobileFrame software allows implementation of two independent tasks: one is a Windows based task that permits an Administrator to enter new equipment into inventory and check the status of equipment already deployed in the field. The second is a field user maintenance application that enables a mobile worker in the field to scan an equipment's barcode and enter maintenance data for that particular equipment on a PDA. Automation of Inventory Management has provided many important benefits to the City including:

  • Inventory Data Is Entered on to a Handheld Device in the Field
  • All Data Is Electronically Uploaded into City Databases
  • Provides Immediate Electronic Access to Data
  • Eliminates Repetitive Manual Data Entry Errors
  • Increased Efficiency Frees City Staff to Perform Other Functions
  • Improves Insight For Resource Management Planning
  • Provides a Single Platform for City-Wide Use

MobileFrame's 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 City workers 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 City personnel can quickly make changes whenever operational requirements change, enabling on-the-spot development and deployment of a wide variety of mobile applications. MobileFrame software affords the City 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 allows the City to automate any field service process with 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 Software 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. MobileFrame software operates on any .NET enabled handheld device, including Pocket PC PDA's, Tablet PC's or Laptops.

"MobileFrame is very excited to extend the benefits of our revolutionary software to yet another City," said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "This project will completely eliminate manual data entry errors and save the City substantial amounts of time and expense."
