Asplundh Tree Expert Company Purchases MobileFrame For 1,500 User Initial Deployment With Plans To Automate 8,000 Field Personnel

Asplundh Tree Expert Company, selected MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility platform to implement mobile applications across their operations.   The first set of mobile applications will include Timesheets, Customer Contract Configuration and Employee / Equipment searches. We will be integrating to their backend system called Proamics, which runs on Sybase. In a later phase we will integrate to SAP.  Asplundh CIO, George Gunther, was impressed with MobileFrame’s ability to automate applications quickly with no programming, which is very important since they have so many applications they want to deploy. The goal of this mobility project is to improve productivity, reduce errors, and speed up job processing.  George estimates a 122% ROI within 30 months based upon a deployment of 1,500 devices running MobileFrame.  They will start the pilot on existing laptops, then migrate over the handhelds. Follow on phases will automate approximately 8,000 field personnel.

Although application development tools are commonplace, those tools require costly, time-consuming development to create business applications. Moreover, such business solutions tend to be inflexible, requiring expensive custom programming whenever business processes change. As business processes evolve, MobileFrame’s software provides unparalleled flexibility to create new mobile applications of any degree of complexity and incorporating any mix of business processes.  The software then seamlessly deploys the new applications to the field wirelessly “on-the-fly.”  With its flexibility and ease of use, MobileFrame’s enterprise mobility software will allow Asplundh Tree Expert Company to quickly deploy their diverse mobile applications and make changes as needed, without time-consuming and expensive development efforts.

“Our first entry into the tree service business was over 6 years ago at Lucas Trees, so we’re quite pleased to bring Asplundh Tree Expert Company into the MobileFrame fold. The number of different mobile applications easily could exceed 200, which is a perfect fit for MobileFrame.”            — Lonny Oswalt, CEO of MobileFrame
