Going Mobile Global

In the past few hours I have either spoken or emailed with partners or project teams in the following locations:

  1. Germany
  2. Australia
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Dublin, Ireland
  5. Belfast, Ireland
  6. UK
  7. The Netherlands
  8. Canada
  9. USA
  10. South Africa

The internet is enabling businesses to expand as never before. The internet provides low cost communication globally. Online marketing allows you to meet companies around the world. Online project management tools enable the management of remote projects. Video conferencing let's you look your team leaders and customers in the eyes across the Atlantic, Pacific or any other ocean or sea. Wire transfers allow us all to get a paycheck. Digital products like software can be distributed across the internet - kind of like a digital fedex service.

Now consider MobileDataforce's mobile software platform - PointSync. A person can be conducting a quality assurance inspection of a food processing plant in Melbourne, Australia and with a click of a button on a mobile handheld computer, the information can be immediately synchronized to a database in New York city for viewing by managers. The internet makes this communication both inexpensive and a reality for most of our deployments these days.
