Native mobile sales solution can be deployed in less than 30 days, with real-time access to IBM i-based ERP systems
Downers Grove, IL July 23, 2013 — LANSA, the leader in native mobile and mobile Web application development tools, today announces the release of LANSA Commerce Edition Mobile. The intuitive mobile application integrates directly with an organization's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to provide remote sales representatives, business partners and customers with real-time access to critical business information via Android and Apple devices.
LANSA Commerce Edition Mobile helps organizations develop a competitive advantage, improve sales productivity and boost customer satisfaction. On-demand access to information like contracts, inventory levels and proposals provides sales representatives with the speed needed to close deals on-site and meet customers’ requests. In addition, the application allows organizations to extend the functionality of their ERP system to their partners and customers, enabling authorized users to place and confirm orders and review inventory levels, prices, order status and shipment details from their smartphone or tablet.
LANSA Commerce Edition Mobile runs on the IBM i and integrates with homegrown or commercial ERP systems, extending the reach of an organization's existing IT infrastructure. Leveraging native mobile device features, LANSA Commerce Edition Mobile utilizes credit card processing, signature capture, barcode scanning and geo-location capabilities to streamline the sales process. The solution can be deployed in less than one month, including installation, ERP integration and native deployment on Android and Apple devices.
"Our customers seek enterprise mobile application solutions that accelerate revenue, enhance sales performance and are quick to deploy." said Steve Gapp, president of LANSA Americas. "We’ve designed LANSA Commerce Edition Mobile to deliver business value and ease of use through an innovative mobile application that addresses integration headaches and security concerns."
Changes to the mobile application’s appearance and functionality do not require any coding because an organization can use the content management program to manage user access and change application aesthetics, including banners, images and color schemes. When programmatic changes are required, developers use their existing RPG skills to maintain and update the mobile application. Because Commerce Edition Mobile is written in RPG and the LongRange mobile platform, and comes with the source code, organizations save time and money by not having to rely on third party vendors to maintain the application.
