Integral Mobile Data (IMD) has announced availability for RIM Blackberry and Palm platforms with mForms, their unique out of the box software solution for the mobile workforce. Many believe that this development will establish mForms as the quintessential tool for companies employing staff who are constantly on the move.
At its most basic, mForms is an electronic form which is completed on a handheld device such as a PDA, mobile phone or Blackberry. The user can record, send and receive information at any time, from any location. mForms can integrate with any existing database, over any communication media. One of the main advantages of the product is that the built in forms designer means that no programming language is required to create or adapt forms.
The mForms communications system will extend the RIM Blackberry device from an email only solution to something suitable for mobilising business critical tasks.
A key advantage of mForms is that companies using a number of different device models, such as Palm and RIM, can use the solution to manage them all as there is no mandate on device selection.
Support for migration between platforms enables a single mobile data synchronisation solution to be developed and deployed quickly to multiple platforms with little or no reconfiguration. In addition to all of this, mForms offers an extremely high degree of security across all platforms, with an advanced security module that includes automatic denial-of-service detection and prevention.
IMDs mForms has revolutionised the way in which organisations are going mobile. They have created a solution that can be implemented in a matter of hours, at a fraction of the cost of comparable offerings. MD Philip Neame says: For many companies, the cost of having a custom solution designed specifically for their purpose has been simply too high. IMD now provides rapid mobile applications development on multiple platforms for these companies for the first time.
