Mobilization of enterprise applications and data

Mail, calendar, and contacts on a smartphone are just the tip of the iceberg.

At the latest with the arrival of the first BlackBerry handhelds in companies, mobile e-mails and calendar data have become indispensable and have long since received the status of "business crititcal". This is one of the reasons why we are a BlackBerry Platinum Solution Partner. However, many companies still limit the use of smartphones and tablets to the aforementioned basic functions

There are many reasons for this. For example, many enterprise programs do not offer appropriate interfaces or applications, and require precisely specified end devices and operating system versions. In the worst case scenario, not only would a motley zoo of devices want to be managed, but it could also happen that employees would be forced to work with two or more devices in parallel.

On the other hand, those responsible do not always recognize the need and advantages of mobile working for employees and companies.


Do you have, for example:

  • Delivery drivers?
  • Technicians?
  • Meter readers?
  • Quality Assurance Officers?
  • Security and law enforcement teams or a company fire brigade?
  • Service staff in significantly large areas such as trade fairs or airports?
  • Engineers and architects on construction sites?
  • Marginally employed temporary workers for inventories carried out at the customer's premises?

If you take a closer look, you will discover that even employees who do not even have a PC workstation today are firstly mobile and secondly naturally integrated into the company's processes. In many cases, the control and documentation of the work is still carried out via telephone and paper. Including the necessary manual documentation and digitization.

Expertise and skills

Since the company was founded in 1995, the topic of mobility has been of particular importance to GFI. With the introduction of BlackBerry Mobile Solutions in Germany, smartphones and tablets - in addition to Windows-based Notesbooks - became increasingly important.

Here is an excerpt from our range of services:

  • Mobilization of existing specialist applications with the help of various interface technologies
  • Development of mobile apps on Android and iOS devices (native, cross-platform with different frameworks)
  • Development with the help of the company's own middleware FlowGate to reduce development efforts

In dialogue with you, we first evaluate the benefits of mobile data communication for your company. The objective here is not so much a technical concept, but a clean process analysis with a well-founded statement on the expected ROI.

Only then comes the technology.
