Integral Mobile Data (IMD), the UKs leading provider of mobile computing systems for business applications, has launched a unique out of the box solution for companies employing staff who are constantly on the move. mForms is a powerful, simple-to-use mobile-workforce software tool which allows rapid application development at a fraction of the price of comparable offerings.
mForms users define forms on any PC. They can then be downloaded to any Windows device. The software suite allows data transmission to take place both in real-time and via any hardware or mobile device or transmission method.
mForms designer software enables solutions to be developed in hours, integrating with any and multiple databases, over any communication media. It has a very high level of security for both the remote device and data in transmission. A range of peripheral capabilities, such as GPS, digital imagery, bar-code and RFID readers, and smart cards can also be readily integrated as part of the simple configuration process.
IMD has a particularly keen focus on potential uses for service providers across a multitude of sectors including; healthcare, transport, utilities and local authority marketplaces. Providers in all of these sectors can improve their business processes by using mForms and a number have already done so.
The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has utilised the system to achieve major time and cost savings for its audit team to inspect and report on contractors. In addition the accuracy of the data collected by handheld computers has enhanced their effectiveness considerably in the enforcement of compliance measure on suppliers.
No programming language is required to install or use mForms within a back-office network. Managing Director Philip Neame says that in this respect the software marks a departure from present competitor offerings. Most current solutions for mobile workforces are largely both bespoke and sector-specific, he said, and usually require more consultancy work when further modifications are required.
He continued: mForms ease of use and simplicity of deployment set it apart from present day systems it reflects IMDs aim of bringing mobile technology to everyday use in ways that are cost-effective, speedy, and easy for the end-user to implement.
Incorporated in 2002, IMD is planning a scaling up of its operations following its relocation from Swindon to Wales as part of a major venture capital deal with Finance Wales. This investment will allow the Cwmbran-based company to bring to market its unique mForms product.
