Common Time M Design Datasheet

  1. 1. mDesign CommonTime mDesign Design, develop, deploy and manage dynamic enterprise mobile applications quickly and easily. The Challenge Organizations worldwide increasingly understand the need to mobilize their workforces. In a bid to achieve the many business benefits an effective mobile strategy can deliver, many companies are looking to mobilize multiple business processes.

The solution also provides full application deployment and a range of flexible back office integration options. mDesign allows you to produce fully functional and integrated mobile applications at fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional development methods. 1
  2. 2. mDesignHow it worksCommonTime mDesign provides a simple drag and drop business process modelling interface and an intuitiveapplication building process that can be used to mobilize complex business processes quickly and easily. Our libraryof customizable business process templates can be modified and adapted in hours, and complex business process canbe built from scratch in days.Completed applications are securely deployed over the air to devices in the field and the information your mobileworkforce captures is seamlessly integrated with your back office systems.

There are existing snippets for authentication, customer information, surveys, questionnaires,inspections, remote data lookup, workflow, photographs, voice memos, and location information. New snippetscan be created manually and added to the library for reuse. CommonTime is continually developing both businessprocess templates and snippets, which are available to download online. 2
  3. 3. mDesign mDesign ManagerCommonTime mDesign Manager allows application deployment, management and full version control from acentralized location or console.Once an application has been created, it is crucial that it can be tested and deployed efficiently to get mobile workersoperational. mDesign provides secure over the air deployment of applications, as well as ongoing management afterthe initial deployment. Changes to applications can be made quickly and easily within mDesign Studio and instantlypushed out over the air to the devices in the field. mDesign ClientCommonTime mDesign Client allows the applications to run on mobile devices and make the most of theindividual device’s hardware capabilities such as a camera or GPS receiver.mDesign Client also allows applications to run “offline” should a field worker be in an area of poor mobile signalcoverage. mDesign ServerCommonTime mDesign has flexible and tiered integration capabilities that range from simple direct integrationwith existing SQL data and Web Services to using bespoke elements such as stored procedures to ensure dataintegrity can be tightly maintained and controlled by its owners.Any information your mobile workforce captures is integrated with your back office systems, removing the need forre-keying or further data integration work.
