Sometimes startups are made in a garage. Other times, a good idea might come out of an existing company but be better off run as a separate entity, starting up anew. In Meridian, Idaho, that’s exactly what veteran company MobileDataForce is doing with its two products, FieldSync and PointSync.
MobileDataForce is a mobile application development company with 10 years of experience in mobile applications. They’ve had a lot of success with their mobile enterprise application platform and have decided to spin off the applications business (FieldSync) and the data-management platform itself (PointSync).
PointSync can be used to extend existing applications to modern platforms such as iPhone and Android, or to develop in .NET, Xcode, or Eclipse. It’s a lower cost way to deliver enterprise mobility from behind a business firewall, in a hosted solution, or through the cloud. PointSync is actually a combination of technologies developed to make it easier to deploy new and updated mobile applications, synchronize data, troubleshoot issues, manage devices and more. According to the company, the “heart of this toolset is PointSync Professional”, an integrated server/dashboard that offers administrators full control of devices in the field.
The company is looking to raise money to establish a global reseller channel, drive marketing, and to continue product innovation.
FieldSync mobile solutions are simple, configurable applications for practically every business and research application imaginable at very low price points off-the-shelf or as a service, making enterprise mobile applications available to small and medium-sized businesses. The applications support Delivery, Direct Care, Construction Management, Inspection, Survey, Point of Sale/Service, Inventory and Supply Chain Management, Research, Process Automation, and just about any paper-based workflow replacement or electronic data collection required. The goal is to replace paper-based workflows, creating more efficiency and reducing costs. FieldSync supports iPhone, iPad and Android and does not require any other software.
For example, the company produced FieldSync Supported Living, a complete mobile solution designed for companies that provide managed services to individuals needing assisted care. Professionals pushing out program plans through the website can track them in real time. The system is powered by PointSync.
FieldSync is also looking for funding to support marketing, additional product development and operations.
The teams will be demoing their products and services at our Tech Cocktail Boise Mixer event this Wednesday evening.
