Building concept to Reality…
In the present era of Business at The Speed of Thought or Business On Demand, the importance of quick decision making is key to the success for any enterprise. Businesses around the world are investing significantly in technologies that integrate the base of information to facilitate live processing and decision making.
The primary bottleneck businesses face today is to facilitate remote field workers to transact with central ERP or CRM solution. Businesses realize that most of the latency, delays in business decisions is linked to non availability of last mile connectivity and inability for the field teams to get real time information from the ERP. In an intensely competitive business domain, ability to reinvent the business process will be key to retain the competitive edge.
Mobien technologies realized the immense potential opened by omni-present mobile networks very early and developed the dream of using mobile networks for business communication into reality. Mobien realizes the potential by enabling a machine-to-machine communication using mobile networks would be a key driver to revolutionize the way businesses transact today.
iNotify – a mobile application infrastructure developed by Mobien Digital LLC thrives to achieve just this. It enables businesses to allow the field teams to use their mobile handsets to transact with the central ERP in real time.
