Business operations that require roaming users to collect or reference
data often look to a mobile solution to perform these operations.
Mobile solutions are quickly replacing paper and laptops
for good reason. When data collected in the field must be entered
into a central database, mobile devices eliminate time-consuming data entry
with their direct connect or synchronization capability. In the case of a
wireless solution, data will be readily available on the mobile unit
via a secure Internet connection.
Additionally, many of our mobile projects have involved customization and integration
with Pendragon Software.

In simplest terms, mobile technology reduces duplication of effort, improves the quality of data, provides more immediate access to information, and better organizes data. This is all possible due to the fact that data is entered once into a structured format direcly intoor synchronously with a central database.
||Reduction of duplicate entries - As opposed to collecting data on paper, data collection and data entry is streamlined. The net of this...time saved.
||Better data - By recording data in a digital form as opposed to a paper form, one can more easily control the data that is entered with entry rules, lists, etc.
||More immediate data - Synchronization means that updates from the device are available on the PC or server, and vice-versa.
||Organized data - Having data immediately available in a structured format offers major benefits. The information can now be fed directly into reporting and business processing.
||Realtime data and updates - In the case of applications using wireless connections, records can be accessed and updated in realtime. Wireless applications are excellent solutions if connectivity is reliable and the additional costs can be justified.
