Chemical Company Gains Real-Time Field Insights With Mobile Platform

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — June 08, 2012

MobileFrame, a provider of Configurable Mobile Applications enterprise software, says Wilbur-Ellis Company, an international marketer and distributor of agricultural and specialty chemical products, has selected MobileFrame to automate its refillable container tracking system. Wilbur-Ellis was previously using a paper-based system to track its large amounts of refillable containers used to store and transport plant protection products. It found this process to be time consuming and inefficient.

Wilbur-Ellis was introduced to MobileFrame's applications by premier partner CIBER, a provider of application development and management solutions for large enterprises. Through CIBER, Wilbur-Ellis was able to see the many benefits of MobileFrame's platform, and how it would benefit with an immediate ROI.

Wilbur-Ellis knew that keeping track of its plant protection product refillable containers was necessary to ensure that it met the Environmental Protection Agency requirements for tracking refillable containers. The companys is so pleased with the product that Wilbur-Ellis is already looking forward to using MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile Applications enterprise software for future projects in other areas.

Some key benefits for Wilbur-Ellis include:

  • Fewer data errors. By no longer handwriting data then re-entering the same data into its business systems, the errors inherent to manual data entry are eliminated and data integrity is improved
  • Improved Productivity. The elimination of paper forms frees time for Wilbur-Ellis' workers to complete more mission critical tasks per day - time is no longer wasted on administrative paperwork
  • Real-time insight. Management can better manage its field force with real-time insight to inventory levels and activities in field
A successful mobility project requires more than just applications – it requires tools for development, deployment, remote device management and maintenance. MobileFrame's complete enterprise mobility solution has allowed Wilbur Ellis to easily create, deploy and administer its inventory-tracking application.

The solution also allows the company to automate every department across the enterprise. The applications can be deployed on any device, all with no custom programming required. MobileFrame's Smart Architecture and intuitive system eliminates time-consuming and expensive custom coding projects. With MobileFrame's platform, an app written one time will perform consistently across all devices in Wilbur-Ellis' organization.

"The elimination of paper forms has freed time for our workers to complete more mission critical tasks per day," says Dan Lesan, C.P.M, Wilbur-Ellis business analyst.
