Aeromark has launched Workflow DynMX, a new technology that enables any organisation to design and deploy a sophisticated mobile worker PDA application in a fraction of the time of traditional mobile solutions and at a significantly reduced cost.
Workflow DynMX, a fully managed service, is the next generation of Aeromarks Mobile Forms, which recently won Best Mobility Innovation Award at the Convergence World Awards 2008, as a branded solution for Orange.
Based on an ASP model, using Aeromarks new RapidXB technology and its Binary Token Protocol (BTP), Workflow DynMX enables the creation of bespoke PDA workflows without the need for bespoke software development. Applications can now be deployed in half the time resulting in significant cost reductions when compared with competitive solutions.
Previously, many organisations employed a mobile solution provider to design and develop bespoke PDA and server applications. This was costly, took up considerable resource and led to a dependence on the provider for any modifications, said Roger Marks, MD of Aeromark. We have taken a very different technology approach to how mobile applications are designed and deployed. Our Workflow DynMX technology utilises our generic software the behaviour of which can be modified to match bespoke customer workflows very quickly.
Tony Barr, IT Director, of Lantec, an IT solutions and logistics provider, that is currently rolling out Workflow DynMX to its 175 field engineers said, Following an extensive review of solutions in the mobile worker space we selected Aeromark based on its innovative technology and its ability to deliver a complete mobile workforce solution. Weve worked closely with Aeromark to quickly develop eight mobile workflow processes that match our specific business requirements and we were still able to run a pilot within three weeks of signing the contract.
Workflow DynMX ensures fast, accurate exchange of task instructions and resulting job completion data that will enable us to improve our service levels and dramatically increase our operational efficiency, continued Barr. Additionally, our decision to roll out the Aeromark technology was based on the considerable cost savings it will bring. It also offers the ability to modify workflows within days rather than months. Alongside Workflow DynMX we are deploying Aeromarks OptimaticsTM in our vehicles. This next level of telematics technology, combined with Workflow DynMX, will enable us to monitor our service levels more effectively and will deliver return on investment through retention of our existing clients and generation of new business opportunities.
Workflow DynMX takes workflow designs, forms and data and compresses them. This enables fast, secure and always-on, store-and-forward push data communication, said Marks. Smaller data packets of binary information mean that the PDA connection time can be shortened typically from 15 seconds to under 3 seconds, which results in greater transmission reliability and reduced data costs, added Marks.
There is no longer the need for bespoke software applications to be developed for the PDA. Importantly, because organisations requirements change and modifications to the mobile application are necessary, we provide training as part of the managed service, which enables the end user to easily make these changes via Aeromarks unique drag and drop web based designer, explained Marks.
Workflow DynMX also makes it easier for customers to integrate with their existing Enterprise systems by providing a simple to use Application Programming Interface (API). Crucially this also allows integration with Aeromarks Optimatics solution which combines complex data feeds from the companys telematics systems, field service and job scheduling applications, to provide the complete mobile worker solution.
Workflow DynMX enables those wishing to deploy mobile PDA applications to take advantage of a professionally deployed and managed hosted solution, secure in the knowledge that modifications can be carried out in-house and will not incur additional professional fees, concluded Marks.
Aeromark is a provider of mobile technology and the next level of telematics, Optimatics. It has recently announced Workflow DynMX, a new technology that transforms the way in which mobile workforce PDA applications are designed and deployed. Based on an ASP model, Workflow DynMX uses Aeromarks new RapidXB technology and its Binary Token Protocol (BTP), enabling PDA applications to be deployed in half the time resulting in significant cost reductions when compared with competitive solutions. Aeromarks Optimatics is a powerful technology platform specifically designed for companies with field-based staff. Also based on a simple ASP model with an intelligent interrogation engine at its core, Optimatics combines complex data feeds from Aeromarks telematics systems with its own and other third party solutions to deliver previously unattainable analysed data. Access to this new data helps organisations to reduce operating costs, optimise productivity and increase customer service levels. Aeromarks are the only systems to gain the status of a Branded Solution for Orange and Preferred Telematics Partner for Vodafone. Aeromark also offers end-to-end support to its customers and its systems are warranted for life.
