The demo version of dashface demonstrates which interfaces your field crew might use on the road to access enterprise data. The demo shows how a sales team views and processes order data using smart phones or tablets.
dashface is a tool which enables fast and easy access to your enterprise data – from anywhere at any time. The app content can be configured by the dashface Configuration Manager, so that it meets the specific processing needs of your manager team, sales force or service crew while they are on tour. Companies can assemble e.g. statistics on business volumes, customer details, service reports and task schedules as possible content of the actual empty app. The app itself is rendered on-the-fly by the rendering engine (see below).
Furthermore companies can also precisely define that only those data and functions of their business applications become an app feature which are essential and absolute needed on-site. This eases the software usage for the field crew and increases the security of remote data handling.
dashface is altogether focusing on that the enterprises get as fast as possible into the driver’s seat in order to administrate the ‘mobile backend’ and to manage the daily change request as well as the further app development without wasting time, money or rare skills.
