The Mobilengine Developer Documentation has been expanded once again, and now includes a complete and up-to-date reference guide on data transfer between the Mobilengine Cloud and external systems (a.k.a. integration).

Whether you want to use the Mobilengine Cloud as middleware to push the data submitted by mobile users to your own CMS, or selectively sync company reference data to mobile users, the guide has got you covered.

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.

That's all for today, thanks for joining us and stay tuned to Mobilengine for more mobility news!

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.

The state of tablet sales: Q2 2015 numbers released [Video]

Posted by

Every industry, from health care to construction, loves tablets, but their employees aren’t a fan of every device and the market is split.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

IDC released a report on tablet sales for Q2 2015, and while 44.7 million units were shipped around the world, not all tablets are flying off the shelves.

In fact, despite being No. 1 overall for tablet vendors, Apple saw shipments decline for its line of iPads, sending out 10.9 million units. Meanwhile, Samsung shipped 7.6 million tablets, a metric that puts the company second in market share.

Tablets have quickly become the best choice for enterprise mobility, as their larger screens make data entry easier in fields like health care, construction and logistics. However, a mobile device is worthless without a mobile workflow solution, making Mobilengine a critical part of any tablet strategy.

That’s all the news we have for this week. Stay with Mobilengine for more mobility news and tips!

Webforms Reference Guide announcement

Posted by

The Mobilengine Developer Documentation is growing and maturing. We are working towards the goal of having Mobilengine SDK developers dip into the online documentation and come away with a comfortable feeling of insight.

On the one hand, our tutorials that take SDK developers from zero to Mobilengine hero in manageable steps have been through numerous reviews, and bugs have been squashed. The shinier new tutorial chapters feature lots of working sample code throughout, and are designed to be completed over a few days’ worth of lunch breaks.

keep-calm-and-read-the-documentation

To complement the hands-on walkthrough, a brand new ‘Webforms Reference Guide’ has been added. The guide is a comprehensive documentation of the Mobilengine Webforms Markup Language that browser-based Mobilengine workflow forms are developed in. Webforms is a recent addition to the Mobilengine SDK, but it’s already becoming essential: apart from web-based forms, forms running on the soon-launching Mobilengine iOS client also speak an updated version of the language. In the new reference guide, details of available form controls and data operations are laid out clearly and consistently, and tons of conveniently highlighted sample code illustrate the syntax.

Many more chapters are in the pipeline, and the existing material is constantly kept up-to-date, so regular visits to https://mobilengine.com/documentation/ are highly recommended.

Mobile app-based fleet tracking systems cuts construction costs [Video]

Posted by

Thanks to the ubiquitous nature of GPS-enabled mobile devices and modern networking capabilities, tracking fleets in the construction industry has never been more cost-effective.

Hi, and welcome to the Mobilengine video blog!

Fleet tracking solutions continue to evolve, and now with mobile devices in every employee’s hands, construction firms are integrating mobile apps with these systems and seeing savings appear everywhere.

From safety and vehicle inspection apps to site stock management and resource allocation apps, construction workers and managers can prevent transportation breakdowns, provide project status updates and supervise equipment. And once construction teams hit the road, navigation apps and site induction apps ensure that employees get to sites on time and already informed.

This directly results in cost cutting. Businesses that use fleet tracking systems can reduce labor and fuel costs by up to 20 percent, according to Construction Executive. This means that the ROI on mobile app projects is achievable in just under a month.

With Mobilengine’s solutions, construction firms can start on the road to mobility and begin reducing fleet tracking costs.

Thanks for joining Mobilengine, and come back next week for more mobility news and tips!

Mobilengine Announces Revolutionary NFC Inspection Program

Posted by

Boston, MA, (June, 2015) — Mobilengine, “the complete end to end mobility solution for your enterprise”, announced that UK based construction firm McGee Group will be featuring Mobilengine NFC inspection tags on its truck fleet. This is a continuation of a partnership that began last year and was highlighted by an award from the Construction Health and Safety Group (CHSG) this spring for this organizations’ use of innovative mobile applications. The McGee and Mobilengine team was presented with the Commended Award for the development of two innovative mobile applications that automate and digitize McGee’s site safety inspections and daily vehicle inspections.

John McGee, Director, said: “The Construction Industry as a whole is challenged by the significant number of paper-based forms, reports and other documents that have to be processed on a daily basis. We therefore decided to develop a series of bespoke mobile applications to enhance daily vehicle inspections and site safety inspections to revolutionize time consuming paper-based systems by ‘going digital’ and above and beyond the minimum requirements of law in relation to vehicle and road safety. The main goal is to fully mobilize a number of company processes and to merge several different management tools into one single application for enhanced safety, improved workflow safety and more visible and controllable processes.”

“With Mobilengine’s mobile technology know-how and McGee’s industry expertise, a solution has been created that enables McGee to enhance site safety and vehicle and road safety.” says Michael Kelly, McGee Group’s Head of IT. We could not have done this without our partnership with Mobilengine and their innovative solutions.” Mobilengine was uniquely positioned to help McGee as they specialize in helping companies create apps that mimic their business processes perfectly in order to improve them….

4 reasons why Mobilengine PaaS is different

Posted by

Welcome to the modern era of business. Speed and efficiency are paramount to success right now, so organizations demand always-on connectivity between their employees and corporate data. This is achievable largely thanks to cloud computing and the evolution of enterprise mobility, but companies lacked the tools and systems needed to empower their employees with those technologies. This week, everything changed.

Mobilengine announced the public availability of its revolutionary platform-as-a-service mobile workflow app development website, mobilengine.com/developers. This new cloud-based PaaS SDK is the first of its kind in the business-to-employee mobile app market, and due to its unique capabilities and benefits, the platform is poised to shake enterprise mobility from its foundation….

Vice President of Business Development Ryan Lallier has helped three start ups experience successful exits, including two acquisitions (Beyond Trust Corp and Insight Direct) and one IPO (Hubspot). Ryan is also the founder of two start-up companies.

Mobilengine launches PaaS SDK: Mobilengine.com/developers

Posted by

The cloud has become a tentpole in enterprise IT, as many organizations move their systems off premises and acquire software-as-a-service solutions instead of relying on licenses. This move to cloud computing could not have come at a better time, especially considering that mobility is tantamount to success in modern business. Nowadays, companies demand services that improve their workflows, while employees require mobile-specific apps and developers request platforms that are easily integrated….
