MobileDataforce®, the leading provider of rapid application development solutions for mobile environments (RADS-ME), announced today the launch of PointSync® 2.0, a complete system for building and deploying advanced applications on mobile devices. With PointSync, organizations with or without in-house programmers can quickly and easily create customized mobile forms software for field data collection and database queries.
PointSync provides enterprises, government agencies and integrators the ability to rapidly develop and deploy mobility projects of all kinds. It is designed for use in a range of industries, such as environmental engineering, utilities, facilities management, field service, logistics, heavy construction and inventory control.
“Datavision has software solutions that meet the unique needs of Irrigation and Water Utility Districts,” says Bill Christiansen, CEO of Datavision. “A vital component of our solution is the mobile handheld application used by field Ditch Riders to monitor and change water flows per customer requirements, and to report important field conditions. We selected MobileDataforce’s PointSync because of its extensive feature set, rapid application development environment, flexibility and cost effectiveness.”
PointSync makes it faster and more affordable to go from concept to deployment regardless of the user's programming skills. While advanced application logic capabilities are available, PointSync enables anyone—regardless of technical knowledge—to rapidly build high-performance mobile applications with full two-way database synchronization from the mobile handheld computer to the enterprise.
Not only is PointSync useful in creating and deploying mobile applications, but it also makes data collection and synchronization more efficient for field employees entering data on Windows Mobile handheld devices. Users can manually enter text or numbers in form fields, scan barcodes, or perform thorough record searches and database queries.
While other mobile application toolkits may facilitate the development of a component of the total system needed for collecting data in the field and synchronizing it with the enterprise database, PointSync is a complete, flexible solution for transferring data to and from the field. It is also priced affordably; enabling organizations of all sizes to equip mobile workers with powerful handheld data collection tools while eliminating the need to re-enter data collected on a paper form into the computer when they return to the office.
“PointSync allows companies to rapidly develop and publish mobile handheld computer applications that connect to their enterprise databases,” says Kevin Benedict, CEO of MobileDataforce. “This system enables mobile workers to access the same databases and information as colleagues in the office. The ability to collect data and access information via handheld computers while in the field, provides a level of efficiency unavailable until now.”
MobileDataforce® is a global leader in the development of high performance software solutions for use on mobile handheld computers. Privately held, MobileDataforce was founded in 2000 and its software solutions are sold worldwide through direct and Value Added Reseller (VAR) channels. MobileDataforce’s software solutions are primarily targeted for the “hardhat” industries including engineering, utilities, facilities management, heavy construction, and inspection services.
