Etherington Air Conditioning Services, Ltd Selects MobileFrame Software To Automate Their Inspection Work Orders

Etherington Air Conditioning Services, Ltd Has Selected MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Software As Its Standard Mobility Platform

San Jose, Calif. -- August 27, 2007 - MobileFrame, LLC (, the leading provider of Configurable Mobile ApplicationsTM, announces that its mobile software platform has been selected by Etherington Air Conditioning Services, LTD. (EAC); a company based in the United Kingdom that specializes in repairing and installing air conditioning and heating systems. EAC is using the MobileFrame platform to extend work orders wirelessly to field technicians. Work orders are processed in the central office and sent directly to the field ensuring the right technician is dispatched to the jobsite with the exact parts needed for the job. Data transmitted from the field when the work is completed allows invoices to be processed immediately. This reduction of the accounts receivable billing cycle has contributed significantly to EAC's bottom line.

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. These mobile applications allow the EAC technicians in the field to have full access to work orders, repair histories, parts inventories, maintenance schedules, etc. MobileFrame's software also allows the technicians to capture photographs, voice notes, documents, sketches, digital signatures, bar code scans, magnetic strip read outs, RFID tags and advanced algorithmic functions, and embed them directly into the work order record. Applications are stored in EAC's library so they can make changes to their applications whenever businesses requirements change, all with no programming required. MobileFrame's software affords customers unparalleled flexibility to create mobile applications of any degree of complexity, incorporating any mix of business processes, and deploy them on-the-fly.

MobileFrame's solution allowed EAC to automate all of their field inspection and work order 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.

"We are pleased to have implemented our solution at Etherington Air Conditioning Services, LTD., "said Lonny Oswalt, MobileFrame's CEO and President. "The successful deployment of EAC�s complex business and work order management system is yet another testament to the flexibility of MobileFrame's platform."
