One of the positive aspects of Mi-Enterprise Apps is the opportunity for mobile app developers to bring their own familiar coding skillset and gain access to enterprise-grade features such user authentication, data workflow, and offline data access.

At Mi-Corporation, the development team is working to develop sample Mi-Enterprise Apps on a variety of platforms to demonstrate this capability.

Cordova Support:

One of those platforms is Cordova where a mobile web developer can create an app that is targeted for both iOS and Android and have access to device resources such as the camera and file system. To support the Cordova platform, we have a number of tools to facilitate development:

  • For Mi-Enterprise Apps, we have the Mi-JS library – a set of JavaScript libraries (from TypeScript if you’re interested) that support interaction with the Mi-Enterprise Apps Server. This makes it easy for JavaScript developers to get started on using services available from the Mi-Enterprise Apps Server.
  • For Data Replication, we have Data Replication Cordova plugins for both iOS and Android. This enables an app to retrieve data from a Data Replication server and store locally. The data is periodically pulled in the background while online. While offline, the Data Replication plugin also offers access to the local data. This has enormous advantages for your mobile workforce where an Internet connection isn’t always available.

Selecting a UI Framework:

As a Cordova developer, one of the challenges in developing for both iOS and Android can be the UI design framework

for the app. Luckily there are several mobile web design frameworks available now. Our criteria for choosing a framework for the sample Cordova app included ease of use, high support for iOS look and feel, and support for common controls and panels. The library also needed to be free so that other developers could use the sample Cordova app project and continue development without incurring any licensing fees or subscriptions. This helped narrow down our choices to jQuery Mobile (www.jquerymobile.com) or Framework7 (http://www.idangero.us/framework7).

In the end, we selected Framework7 which has worked out well so far. With support for templating, rendering large lists has not been an issue. The number of controls and ‘widgets’ were extensive and full featured. With a focus for the iOS 7 UI and UX, Framework 7 looks great so far. Although Framework7 was designed with the iOS 7 design theme, the app also performs well on Android.

Summary:

While building a sample Cordova app for Mi-Enterprise Apps and Data Replication, we selected the Framework7 UI library because of its versatility, ease of use, look, and cost. This will help our developer community get started with Cordova based Mi-Enterprise apps. Keep in mind that developers are not limited to using Framework7 or Cordova – Mi-Enterprise Apps supports a variety of mobile platforms -  so that developers have choices to building great mission-critical apps for their businesses.

Inspection Data Processes Can Be Fully Automated and Complemented by Data Analytics and Data Visualization Capabilities

DURHAM, NC–(Marketwired – Oct 14, 2014) – Mi-Corporation, the leading provider of the most flexible, enterprise-class mobile data capture software platform — Mi-Forms — announces Big Data product Mobile Inspection Software by Mi-Corporation (MISM), which allows companies to automate field inspection data processes end-to-end quickly, including analysis & visualization of field data.

MISM, which integrates with Mi-Forms and other e-forms systems or Field Inspection Software packages, provides a data repository for data analytics and integration. Data captured in the field becomes visible immediately upon upload, while customizable dashboards, charts, and reports, nine of which ship with the product, provide data visualization for the inspection capture process.

Users can create multiple dashboards and charts within each dashboard, and report on common field inspection elements (e.g., number of inspections by type performed by inspector) or specific field inspection details. There is no constraint on the data that can be visualized. Filter values obtained directly from captured data allow for unique chart configurations.

According to Mi-Corporation CTO Chris DiPierro, “In listening to our customers who were focused on collecting and analyzing field inspection-related data, we set out to develop a software product that provides the level of data analysis and visualization needed to effectively automate field inspection data processes. By empowering executives & managers with functionality that allows for easy, quick analysis of their field inspection processes & data, we have created a platform that enables them to make the best decisions for their organizations, most effectively & quickly.”

Mi-Corporation software has helped organizations like the NC Department of Agriculture reduce a 3-4 week process to a day, allowed Lightower Fiber Networks to save $400/day and produced 100x more accurate data for IDCRP as relates to their field inspection processes. This new solution provides a number of additional features designed to help companies better capture, analyze, and report on inspection data captured onsite, in the field. They include:

  • Flexible Database Repository – users can upload exported form data without having to create a corresponding database entity compared to other systems that often require customizing database tables and procedures on a per form basis. Mi-Co’s approach records all captured data in a SQL Server database that is suitable for report generation and integration with other systems, hosted in the cloud or on-premise
  • Standard Platform – sitting atop Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server platforms, MISM takes advantage of technologies already in place in most organizations. When creating reports in SQL Reporting Services (SSRS), users can drop data directly into dashboards within MISM without requiring navigation away from the system. Anyone familiar with SSRS and flat file data formats (PDF, Microsoft Word, CSV, XML, and Excel files) can customize the reports
  • Integrated Help and Tutorials – every page of the solution has integrated help that aids administrators and users to navigate the software and customize it to their needs. Video tutorials provide guidance on topics such as setting up new dashboards, updating charts, and configuring reports

To learn more, watch this video, read this Infographic, or contact Mi-Corporation at info@mi-corporation.com to try an evaluation version of MISM today. Even better, register for our webinar, being held on October 21st, 2015 at 11:00am EST.

Replacing paper processes with a mobile data capture system like Mi-Forms can positively impact a business, providing benefits such as increased data accuracy, streamlined workflow and increased worker productivity.

But change can be difficult. User adoption is one of the key failure points in mobility projects.

Training has a key role to play in user adoption which is imperative to a successful implementation.  Delivering training that engages people and motivates them to embrace change is key. Communication should be a core part of your training and transformation process. Your users should be informed of the impact the new system will have, implementation timelines and expectations. Your users should be encouraged to provide feedback as well.

We take a look this month at the “Managed Mobility Services” market space (sometimes referred to as Enterprise Mobility Management), an important segment given the profusion of mobile devices, mobile apps, mobile back-end as a service (mBaaS) platforms, mobile services and more!  Last year, research firm Gartner published its first MMS Magic Quadrant report, predicting that MMS revenue could grow from $500 million in 2013 to $3.4 billion by 2016.

According to Gartner in the Managed Mobility Services 2014 Magic Quadrant Report, “Managed mobility services (MMS) encompass the IT and process services provided by an external service provider (ESP) that are required to plan, procure, provision, activate, manage and support mobile devices, network services, management systems, mobile applications and application stores.”

In terms of ESP capabilities, Gartner breaks MMS into 6 categories as follows:

1)    Sourcing & Logistics Management – Purchase, Provision & Activation of mobile devices for a workforce

2)    Mobile Service Management – Mobile contract inspections, network performance audits, expense management

3)    Device & System Management – Service helpdesk for corporate liable and BYOD devices, mobility servers etc.

4)    Application & Collaboration Management – Support for off-the-shelf and customized mobile applications

5)    Security & Content Management – Setting up & enforcing rule-based policies, securing devices, data etc.

6)    Program & Financial Management – A 3rd party becoming an ‘agent’ for a corporation, responsible for all or most aspects of managing mobility

Let’s take a look a look at Managed Mobility Services in action. This Case Study from MOBI, a MMS/EMM provider, illustrates the challenges a publicly traded IT company faced. With 600 devices, 2 wireless carriers & 60 cost centers to allocate costs to, effectively servicing their employees caused this organization to incur a $100,000+ international roaming charge. This led their CFO to look for a managed mobility services provider. Putting a policy, portal & system in place for 1,100 employees, MOBI was able to provide (1) Expense Management, (2) End-user Support & (3) Analysis & Reporting, resulting in significantly lowered wireless & roaming costs.

Calero, another MMS provider, has a nice set of case study examples here with customer success metrics identified, including example such as producing $15,000 per month savings in monthly telecom fees for Huhtamaki, a specialty consumer good packaging company, recovery of unused mobile devices and more.

While any large organization with a proliferation of devices, apps and data needs to consider outsourcing their management to providers like these, it’s not all a bed of roses. Gartner also cautions here, that a lot of MMS providers are still in the early stage of fully developing their offerings to truly support global deployments. Don’t think of just expense reduction as the main purpose of MMS – with more efficiently managed mobile services, your organization can drive more revenue, maximize employee productivity, create new business models and transform customer service as well. With more & more mobile fun to come, whether you outsource or insource, be aware of all the facets of enterprise mobility deployments!

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the NCPMI Annual Event at the Raleigh Convention Center.  This is a day-long event for Project Management Professionals that offers a chance to attend a number of project management-related sessions during the day.  The sessions covered a wide range of topics and provided useful information relating to projects of all different types.

One of the more amusing anecdotes discussed during a session had to do with unexpected challenges that are often encountered as new technology is adopted.  The speaker talked about helping his mother learn how to use her new smartphone.

The first challenge was a fairly common and expected one with new technology: user buy-in.  His mother resisted getting a new phone for years because she did not see the need for it.  Her old phone worked fine.  Who needed to text?  If somebody wanted to see how she was doing, they should just call her like they had always done.  Eventually, her old phone died and she did end up with a smartphone.  It turned out that once she actually gave the new technology a try, she was a big fan of it.

The unexpected challenge was getting her to understand the proper use of some phrases that were new to her vocabulary.  This was not really something that had been given much thought.  There was time spent teaching his mother the basics of working with the phone, of course, but not much thought had been given to ensuring that she understood some of the terms and phrases that she may encounter.  This became apparent after his mother had been using the new phone for a few weeks and had posted on her Facebook wall about how she had “booty called” her son three times one week.  Needless to say, he very quickly explained to her the difference between a “butt dial” and a “booty call”.  She had heard both phrases before, and in her mind, they were the same thing.  There was obviously some important user training that still needed to happen.

As you help people learn to work with new technology, this is an important lesson to keep in mind: be sure to provide proper and complete user training.  It can help prevent embarrassing situations for everybody involved. Learn more valuable lessons at Mi-Corporation’s webinar “Training for Mobility Success” this Wednesday (Sept 22nd, 2014).

As Apple nears the launch of new iGadgets this week, perhaps iOS 8 and who knows what else, I thought it would be useful to look back at one of the hidden gems of iOS 7 that perhaps has not seen as much light of day as I expected. I’m referring to iBeacon – a set of transmitters that can transmit precise locations to iOS 7 devices like iPhones. The uses for this in a sector like retail leap right off a page at any reader. Imagine a coupon for milk getting texted to your phone, or pushed through a push-notification, right as you’re in front of the milk section. If you were wavering or about to pick one product, that action/offer might change your mind right then and there!

 

Business week writes about “Why Apple’s iBeacon Hasn’t Taken off – Yet” and notes that a lot of Fortune 500 companies are testing it including Macy’s, Hillshire and more, but have not deployed it in a meaningful way. In a world where consumers are used to scanning product barcodes with their smartphones and looking up prices on Amazon, eBay and other e-commerce sites, this is admittedly a bit puzzling. This author expects that we’ll see more adoption soon.

 

One success story with iBeacon is Major League Baseball (MLB). Business week writes that 28 of 30 ballparks have iBeacon, and fan check-ins have doubled with these, helping MLB push merchandise coupons, seat upgrades and more, and is now adding short-video segments on the history of the stadiums.

 

As always privacy, abuse of data collected by retailers and more are ethical issues that have to be worked through. But don’t be surprised to see contextually timed coupons and offers flash across your smartphone in the near future!

DURHAM, NC–(Marketwired – Aug 12, 2014) – Mi-Corporation, the Mobile Information Corporation, today announced that WasteStrategies has built its proprietary compliance management system — WS AuditPRO — for managing EPA, OSHA, and other safety and compliance issues on the Mi-Forms mobile forms software platform.

Built with years of environmental-related consulting expertise, WasteStrategies created a web-based compliance system that enables comprehensive self-directed compliance and reporting activities to ensure thorough, accurate, and professional audits. WS AuditPRO simplifies, improves, and expedites the compliance audit process by intuitively guiding an organization’s audit team, room by room, through state-specific protocols for OSHA and EPA.

We built an indispensable compliance management system for complex organizations where compliance with EPA, OSHA and other safety standards is a concern,” said John Nicklin, managing member of WasteStrategies. “This is the only web-based platform on the market that offers automated management and assessment for audits and on-the-spot inspections. Providing staff with easy access to a compliance guidelines library, and a web portal designed to give senior management a real-time, visual dashboard assessment of compliance vulnerabilities, and corrective and preventive actions has allowed us to engage our clients at a much deeper and more strategic level when it comes to compliance adherence.”

This intuitive, turnkey interactive tool combines smart protocols with actionable findings and corrective recommendations, all contained within an easy-to-use mobile platform. Users can easily perform a comprehensive compliance audit or conduct regular, no-cost spot inspections with data collection, reporting, and management capabilities that require no additional staff.

With the intuitive paper-like electronic format provided by Mi-Forms mobile forms software, WS AuditPRO incorporates handwriting recognition, integrated photo capture capabilities, and intelligent logic to simplify training, reduce errors, and ensure a thorough audit. Users also save time and money by keeping overhead down, better understanding risks, increasing productivity in the management of compliance mandates, and supporting efforts to instill a culture of compliance.

AuditPRO software is updated automatically to reflect the latest compliance protocols at the start of any new audit. As the program guides users through the audit process, collected data is uploaded in real-time to a secure proprietary database from which a company’s audit team can deliver final reports

According to Mi-Corporation’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Gautham Pandiyan, “We worked closely with WasteStrategies to customize a mobile data capture solution that allows its clients to easily capture, report, and analyze critical information essential to conducting EPA and OSHA compliance audits. Typically, a complex and often-unwieldy process, we automated the processes into an intuitive systematic process that essentially makes the entire audit process simple and requires no additional overhead or specialized audit training or certification.”

Nicklin recently shared the benefits of deploying Mi-Co’s mobile data capture technology along with other customers who attended and presented at Mi-Co’s Annual Mobility Summit. To learn more about WS AuditPRO visit http://www.wastestrategies.com/view-auditpro-action. Video testimonials from the Annual Mobility Summit appear online at the Mi-Corporation YouTube Channel.
