Profound Mobile: For Businesses That Don't Stand Still
By making your IBM i applications available in mobile devices, you're empowering your workforce to access vital business information where they need it, when they need it. Mobile applications support your remote workers, such as your sales team, and can even help your customers interact with your business more efficiently.
Our Mobile Application product, Profound Mobile, enables you to rapidly design and deploy mobile applications, even if you aren't an expert at mobile development! You can deploy your IBM i applications in any mobile device or tablet, and add native capabilities to applications on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Best yet, there's no need to invest in separate tools or learn complicated native device programming languages, like Objective-C or Java!
Benefits of Creating Mobile Apps for IBM i with Profound Mobile:
Mobilize your workforce by giving them "anywhere access" to applications
Give customers another option to connect with your business
Make your applications more functional by integrating native mobile features like Camera, Signature Pad and Maps
Eliminate the need to learn mobile development languages — all you need is your RPG or PHP skills
How it works:
Our Profound Mobile product offers a streamlined set of tools for mobile development, including a drag-and-drop Visual Designer that offers device-specific layouts, the ability to rotate and preview applications, and native widgets and buttons
The RPG OA Handler outputs traditional RPG display operations for rich displays, meaning that you can code RPG in your accustomed manner, and the application will display in Web and mobile browsers
Custom Mobile Services are available from our team when you need additional development talent
We offer several options for deploying mobile applications:
Web Browser Your Web application will display in the mobile device’s browser, but without any native device integration
Hybrid Development with Mobile Client Deployment You can also use the Profound Mobile Client, which streamlines the process of deploying native mobile applications by making them instantly accessible via a client on the iTunes and Google Play stores.
Hybrid Development with PhoneGap Integration PhoneGap integration lets you package and deploy your application to app stores with native capabilities, without the need to learn iOS or Android programming languages. This option also supports offline capabilities.
Our flagship product Profound UI is a suite of tools that makes it easy to transform existing green screen applications into GUI browser-based applications, or develop new, rich desktop applications that run on the IBM i. Click here to learn more about Profound UI.
