Gupta Technologies Simplifies Mobile Business Application Development with Launch of TD Mobile
ROSEVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, a global provider of application development, database
and migration software, today announced the launch of its cross-platform
mobile application development solution, TD Mobile. The new product
accelerates development time and reduces the cost to develop mobile
business applications by packaging the technologies needed for mobile
development into one system and eliminating the coding required to
connect backend services with the UI. TD Mobile enables users to create
mobile business apps for smartphones and tablets across all mobile
Developing mobile business applications requires many different
.NET (News - Alert), web services, JSON on the backend. Typically developers have to
jump back and forth between files and write a significant amount of
code, which requires longer development cycles and specialized skill
sets. In addition, fragmentation around multiple display sizes and the
requirements for data transfer between the front and back end further
add to the complexity of mobile development. TD Mobile addresses these
challenges by unifying all the technologies into one easy to use system
and eliminates the coding required to connect backend services with the
UI. With less coding, the time and cost to develop an app is
"Our focus in developing TD Mobile was all about simplification and
speed for developers. In order for users to easily and quickly create
mobile apps that access their backend business data, they need software
that unifies and packages all the technologies for mobile development
into a single system usable by developers of all skill levels," said
Frank Verardi, Vice President and General Manager of Gupta Technologies.
"TD Mobile builds on Gupta's 30 years of experience in development and
database software with a solution that reduces coding, streamlines the
binding of screens to backend data and speeds testing and deployment to
enable cost effective, fast implementation of mobile business
What customers are saying:
"With TD Mobile, building a mobile business application was simple and
straightforward. Because TD Mobile packages all the technologies into
one system and removes a lot of coding normally required, we were able
to build and deploy an app for our client in one month," said Brian
Bulaw, President of Power Chord Systems. "Our client wanted to eliminate
paperwork generated in the field as crews performed street repairs and
sync the data in real time with the city's workflow management system.
Using the TD Mobile app, a crew is able record their work on site
through their smart phones. The GPS location is recorded, photos are
taken to document work performed, and the amounts of materials used are
all recorded. Our client is now looking to eliminate paperwork and
streamlie operations in other aspects of the city's public works
department using TD Mobile applications."
"Our web-based product, 'Onlineakte,' enables our customers to manage
their case files and claims data online through their desktop browser.
Using TD Mobile, we built a read-only mobile version of 'Onlineakte' in
a few days," said Matthias L�ling, Developer at Advo-web GmbH. "TD
Mobile enabled us to not have to write a single line of HTML5 or
assemblies, which greatly accelerated development of the new mobile app.
We look forward to completing the write-access phase of our
implementation and delivering a fully functioning mobile version of
'Onlineakte' to our customers."
"TD Mobile allowed us to build a cost-effective mobile solution for our
client who wanted to provide real time updates on shipment location and
status, planned arrival times and ability to verify orders upon
delivery," said Edward Forrest, CEO of Continental Software Services
Ltd. "With increasing traffic congestion, actual delivery times were
difficult to predict accurately. We were impressed with the ease and
speed at which we were able to develop the app with TD Mobile and the
simplicity of connecting the data from our core 'QFreight' system with
the location tracking GPS features of the device. Our client was able to
monitor deliveries and times due at its locations, which greatly
enhanced its customer service and satisfaction."
Key features of TD Mobile include:
Cross-platform. Developers use one source code for iPhone,
Android (News - Alert), Blackberry, Kindle, and other leading mobile devices.
One application and team. Developers build one app, one time to
run on all mobile devices. Developers do not need specialized skills
for every device OS.
Support for every display size. Apps automatically scale to the
resolution of the device. Developers can also choose to design
separate screens for tablets and smartphones to accommodate for the
differences in screen real estate.
Drag and drop development. Developers have quick access to
screens to compile and test versus opening menus and searching through
complicated cascading menu structures. An interactive page designer
and predefined themes for look and feel as well as the ability to
design themes speed GUI development.
No coding data binding. Developers do not need to code
can be cumbersome and time consuming.
Internationalization. TD Mobile features built-in app
internationalization. Developers enter multiple language UI strings
and at runtime TD Mobile detects the language to use based on the
Wizard-based deployment. Developers identify the server and
deployment directory and deploy the app with the click of a button.
Users launch the app through an icon on the device. There is no app
store approval process required.
Availability: TD Mobile is immediately available. A free 30 day
trial is available for download from www.guptatechnologies.com.
