Flowfinity Announces Support for iPhone Barcode Scanning Apps
Flowfinity Actions now supports barcode scanner hardware
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 31, 2012 - Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a proven provider of enterprise mobile apps for business process automation, today announced support for hardware add-ons for iPhone, enabling rapid, offline use for mobile barcode scanning applications such as materials usage, inventory and asset management, sales orders and security guard patrols.
The solution integrates hardware scanners with Flowfinity Actions software, which allows businesses to customize their own apps for data collection and lookup without programming. For example, users can create mobile forms with signature capture and GPS tracking to scan and sign out assets, or search for inventory in real-time while helping a customer. Unlike using a camera-based solution that requires an internet connection to interpret the codes, peripheral scanners allow barcodes to be read and recorded even when offline.
Barcodes and other information from Flowfinity apps are recorded then stored in a central database for efficient analysis and access, or integrated with other enterprise systems. Better tracking of company assets and activities can result in substantial cost-savings and support an environment of accountability within the business.
"Flowfinity offers our iPhone customers the opportunity to replace expensive, proprietary mobile scanning devices with a more cost-effective and nimble solution," said Dmitry Mikhailov, President & CEO, Flowfinity. "Flowfinity delivers the flexibility to improve business operations while deploying enterprise apps that take full advantage of the rich iPhone user experience."
iPhone users can take advantage of Flowfinity Actions with barcode scanning for facilities management, service management, ordering, stock control, goods receiving, and other data collection and scanning applications.For more information, visit www.flowfinity.com/solutions/barcode-apps.aspx.
