The Future of Mobile and Route Sales Applications for Smart Phones, Part 1

Wireless Developer's Journal I can see multiple mobile applications and technologies converging rapidly to provide some very interesting scenarios for mobile and route sales people. Consider the following scenario. A mobile sales person or route sales person is driving through an unfamiliar territory. She stops in a parking lot and activates an application on her Smart Phone that identifies her location and requests visibility into the location of all current and past customers, and any known sales prospects. Her application, using Google Maps provides a map with color coded "push pins" showing the exact locations of each. Tapping on any push pin identifies the street address, name, product and account history. The mobile sales person only has 2 hours to spare, so selects a priority filter. The map updates and removes non-selected accounts. She then selects the opt... (more)

Barcode Scans and Prices on Mobile Handheld Computers and Smart Phones

iPhone Developer's Journal Last week I wrote an article pondering the benefits of using my iPhone to capture the bar code on grocery store products, using the integrated digital camera, and then have my iPhone use its GPS coordinates to look at the prices of this product in other grocery store locations that are close to mine. In the comments part of that article, I received some good feedback from industry veterans identifying some of the challenges to accomplishing that dream. For example grocery stores don't want you shopping around for other products so don't publish their prices, and grocery stores don't want the food manufacturers promoting their products at other locations. I did receive some links to software companies that are taking steps in that direction. Here is one link from Pic2Shop for your reference. ... (more)

The Black Hole of Enterprise Mobility Apps

I was eating my fried chicken cobb salad at an airport restaurant in Chicago yesterday and overheard a table full of businessmen next to me talking about mobile apps.  One of them bragged about how easy it is to develop mobile apps.  He used as evidence the fact that even his brother-n-law had developed one. I don't doubt it was a major accomplishment for the brother-n-law, but I do doubt the mobile app in question was actually enterprise ready.  There is much more involved with developing mobile apps than just putting your favorite spreadsheet into an iOS app and getting it approved by Apple.  There are things like deployment, maintenance, integration, app management, single sign-on and security that must be considered. Unless there is a strategic reason to develop your own mobile apps, you should really look for off-the-shelf mobile apps first from quality mobile ... (more)

Adobe or HTML5 - Flex or JavaScript?

I know, some people will say it’s apples to oranges. Some people will say Adobe is also pushing for HTML5. But I’m writing this for people who read the title of this blog correctly: Flex or JavaScript. Disclaimer 1. I do both. Disclaimer 2. I don’t care about game programming. I work for a company that does enterprise development. In the enterprise IT circles Adobe is a whipping boy of 2012. Adobe has accepted this award, and only their cleaning ladies and janitors didn’t apologies for what their CTO and CEO did last November hiding behind the wide back of Danny Winokur. But let’s put emotions behind and get real. Today, there are two types of the enterprise CIO’s: those who don’t care about developing for mobile and those who do. CIO’s who don’t care about mobile can be divided into two groups: smart and typical. Smarts will start new Web projects selecting a technol... (more)

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business Ray Coleman is a small business owner who writes about money management, green living, and sustainability.   One of the great benefits of the modern age is the ability of small businesses to conduct a majority of their operations in the digital realm. Eliminating the need for bulky file cabinets, storage facilities, photocopiers, printers, and scanners can reduce overhead dramatically.

Mobile Internet Remodeling

In my experience as a home owner, remodeling is inititated by one of the following: A glossy Architectural Digest fantasy catches my eye I'm invited to someone's home, and realize rubbing sticks together to make fire is so passé A kitchen sink or bathtub backs up with stuff that belongs down the toilet Remodelling can serve as an analogy to planning your Mobile Internet Odyssey 4G Jealousy OK, so there already are a few 4G "neighbors" out there. If you get invited "to their home", you may find yourself fighting off pangs of jealousy as you sample a taste of "meals" they offer, which include the latest streaming video, managed B2B communications, visual collaboration, games, and more.  This is not fantasy, it's real, and maybe you're jealous. So ask them, or ask yourself, how did they get there? 2G Family Expansion - 3G+IP I've been to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona... (more)
