MX is a software toolkit and corporate server platform that allows users to quickly and easily design, deploy and manage multiple bespoke mobile applications across different types of business smartphones or tablets. Using these applications, mobile workers can operate on or offline, taking information from back-office systems with them and updating it from the field.
Rather than selecting multiple mobile solutions from different vendors which work only on selective technology platforms in a prescribed manner, MX puts you in control by letting you design and run applications that work in line with the way that you do. Best of all it can integrate properly with your existing systems.
With its intuitive, PowerPoint-style drag-and-drop FormDesigner interface, the MX toolkit is comparatively simple to use, allowing you to create your own mobile business forms but also leveraging the full resources of today’s mobile devices, such as cameras, GPS, bar code readers, e-mail, tasks and calendars. The data sources for the applications can be mapped simply and graphically. Powerful VB based scripting can also be used for more complex operations, even on non-Microsoft devices such as Android and BlackBerry. Once developed, the same application can run on different makes and types of device. This means that you can develop and deploy applications to a wide range of devices without having to employ expensive specialist platform developers.
In addition, your developers can also draw on a range of templates and share application models with other users through the NDL awi User Group Forum. You can even migrate applications for deployment from one form factor to another at the click of a button should you choose to change device types.
Once developed, the MX management server lets you deploy these applications quickly over the air, minimising your management and administration costs. With its strong data encryption, the server provides secure synchronisation of data and as the MX management server also integrates with Active Directory it also provides application, user, group and device management as well as full audit facilities. The MX mobile client provides on-device security, communications and offline working capabilities.
Throughout the public sector MX increasingly features as a key driver on the cost cutting agenda and this is supported by many compelling case studies reporting countless benefits and an unparalleled ROI.
