MMCC Consultants and B2M work together on mobile application for Kwik-Fit Fleet
After announcing in July 2008 that B2M Solutions had appointed MMCC Consultants as a Certified Partner, the two companies have worked together to develop a new mobile application and management system for Kwik-Fit Fleet. This has very quickly demonstrated the benefit of combining application and mobile management software to provide a complete system that provides all the functionality required with the latest in mobile enterprise management. The new system went live for Kwik-Fit at the beginning of December.
The partnership allows MMCC Consultants, who specialise in the development of software applications, to incorporate B2Ms mprodigyTM mobile management suite. This co-operation has allowed the development of a complete bespoke system for Kwik-Fit Fleet to be achieved in just 6 months from placing the order. The new system provides every Kwik-Fit Fleet engineer with a hand-held unit that provides logistics, job and billing information throughout the day. Using B2Ms mprodigyTM mobile management suite, Kwik-Fit can manage, maintain and upgrade the hand-held units for all its 230 engineers from a central station.
Mark Ogier, Managing Director at MMCC Consultants, said that he was delighted with the way the partnership with B2M had worked. Right from the start we felt that this was an ideal partnership, he said. We can now develop customer-facing mobile technology and manage our customers mobile workforce more efficiently. This combination significantly increases efficiency thereby improving productivity and greatly reducing the cost of ownership. In fact Kwik-Fit is expecting a 5% increase in efficiency and reduced communication costs compared with its old mobile system.
Mark added: Our partnership means that we dont have to reinvent the wheel we have a ready-to-go, state-of-the-art communications infrastructure designed for large, complex mobile installations. We can take full advantage of mprodigys rich features to enhance the value of our own offerings, gain greater control over our applications and greatly reduce development time and costs.
Julie Purves, Managing Director of B2M Solutions was delighted with the way the partnership had developed. Weve only been working with MMCC for 6 months but already we have developed an efficient, practical system for a leading UK company. MMCC is an active and enthusiastic partner and we are all looking forward to a continuing working relationship with them.
MMCC Consultants and B2M Solutions are currently working on a joint marketing strategy to target the key market sectors of utilities, transport, retail and healthcare with their unique mobile offering.
