Mobile app requirements push businesses to rapid development solutions [Video]

Posted by

According to a new 451 Research report, over 50 percent of businesses plan to deploy 10 or more mobile apps in the next 10 years.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

Clearly, the demand for business-to-employee mobile workflow apps is high right now, as staff members clamor for new solutions to work on the go and send data in real-time.

Industries with the most interest in mobile workflow apps include health care, sales and retail.

However, these organizations and their IT teams cannot keep up with mobile app development demands.

As a result, more businesses are looking for rapid development platforms and help from external partners.

The report noted that companies that require numerous mobile workflow apps were liable to deploy mobile-backend-as-a-service solutions and mobile app development platforms.

This is the only way to keep up with the high volume of mobile apps required nowadays.

The need for native mobile apps: Solving the cost crisis [Video]

Posted by

According to the latest Field Service News Podcast, around two-thirds of businesses demand native mobile apps.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

It’s no surprise that businesses would rather use native mobile apps than Web-based alternatives. Native solutions are more responsive, provide an all-around better user experience and support a variety of cutting-edge technologies. However, popular tech resources such as TechTarget and Software Development Times reported that it’s expensive to find people with native mobile app development skills, and creating dozens of native apps costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Businesses need to support and develop native solutions without financially devastating consequences.

So, why not combine the cost-effectiveness of as-a-service solutions with native mobile app development? The solution that can accomplish this is Mobilengine, a mobile app development platform with backend as a service capabilities that reduce the cost of supporting and managing native mobile workflow apps on iOS and Android.

Warehouse managers demand mobile logistics apps [Video]

Posted by

A new survey from Manhattan Associates found that 63 percent of warehouse managers lack access to a computer on the warehouse floor. This is just one reason why they demand mobile logistics apps.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

Mobility can solve many of today’s challenges in the logistics industry, and warehouse managers’ duties are a perfect example of this.

For instance, 33 percent of warehouse managers noted that with access to a mobile solution such as a task management app, they can double the time they spend on the floor.

Alternatively, 42 percent want increased oversight over their teams with mobile apps, making freight task management apps the perfect fit for those logistics pros.

Other than solving their challenges, the survey found that warehouse managers also want to give mobile apps to their employees to increase productivity, improve work management and meet labor requirements.

Proof of delivery apps, Vehicle inspection apps and Tour planning apps from Mobilengine are just a few tools that can help personnel accomplish that goal.

Readmission reductions with mobile health care apps [Video]

Posted by

Readmission rates continue to cause problems for health care providers, and it seems like the issue is related to admission and discharge practices.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

Health care providers have a duty to keep patients safe, and current readmission statistics indicate that these organizations can do so by deploying mobile apps for admission and discharge. Simply put, mobile workflow solutions solve some of the most common problems leading to readmission.

According to Healthcare IT News, 37 percent of patients are discharged unaware of why they need prescribed medications. Mobile patient discharge apps can ensure that everyone goes home informed, as nurses use these solutions to complete task lists and double check information.

Additionally, the news source reported that 50 percent of patients who go to health care facilities without an appointment will be readmitted. The problem is that providers don’t have enough information, as collecting it on the fly is a challenge. Readmission rates can drop if health care providers use mobile patient admission apps from the get-go.

That’s all for today, check back with Mobilengine for more mobility news and tips.

Workflow Script Reference Guide Available

Posted by

We reached another milestone for the Mobilengine Developer Documentation yesterday: the comprehensive reference guide to the Mobilengine Workflow Scripting Language is online.

In a nutshell, the scripting language lets you process incoming data to the Cloud to let you create, insert, update, or delete reference data items based on user-submitted data or data coming from external integrated systems. Script-based data processing isn’t just a one-way exchange either – create and send messages to integrated external systems, or remotely open forms with custom data on specific users’ mobiles at will! What’s more, scripts can work both server- and client-side to overcome network interruptions.

The Tutorials gave a quick overview of the most-often used workflow scripting operations, but this guide is the final word (so far) in workflow scripting reference. The guide is bristling with working sample code that SDK developers can try and/or tweak to use in their own projects, and we strived hard to make the details transparent.

That said, the documentation now comes with a very handy way to comment or ask questions about anything on the page: simply select a part of the text you’ve got something to say about, click the dialog that pops up, and type away. Looking forward to hearing from you, and watch this space for future updates.
