It wasn’t that long ago that employees came to work, used the tools approved and given to them by the IT department and went home……what happened? The Smartphone and then the Tablet
Employees are now bringing a plethora of mobile devices to work with them from smartphones to tablets that come with a wide variety of operating systems – iOS, Android, Windows 8, and BlackBerry. In conjunction with the introduction of this archipelago of mobile devices and operating systems into the modern organisation there is a demand from users for applications that enable productivity on these devices. Given the varieties of operating systems floating around the organization developing productivity applications can be a nightmare.
Business Mechanix have extensive experience in the wild west of mobile app development and have found increasing success using HTML5 to create browser based mobile apps that work cross platform – that’s right one app that works across iOS, the many flavors of Android, Windows 8 and BlackBerry.
For example we developed a MobilizeRM (Mobilize Relationship Management) application for the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) which is an HTML5 application hosted in Microsoft’s Windows Azure Cloud which works across the many flavors of Android, iPhones and iPads. The MobilizeRM solution empowers executives and management at Wintec to view, add, and update information both on and offline as well as assign tasks to other users. Best of all Wintec’s MobilizeRM application can be accessed via device browser for both on and offline access and as such does not require an additional app to be installed on the device.
