  • Build your Mobile-First app using Native Mobile Features with No Coding

    When developing your mobile-first app, take advantage of all the features built into your mobile device to optimize the capabilities of the app, e.g. camera, geo-location, mapping, wayfinding, audio recording, that aren’t easily accessible from a laptop.

    ViziApps Studio offers a list of mobile device actions from which you can select as you build your mobile app. With ViziApps, you can use all the device features in your mobile app - with no coding.

    Let’s look at how important device features are in a typical mobile workflow example.

  • Data Source Simplification – ViziApps' most powerful no-code feature?

    Michael Hackney, CTO and VP of Products, ViziApps

    Over the years, I’ve worked with (and developed) a number of rapid application development (RAD) and low-code tools targeting development for desktop, Web browser, embedded device, and mobile device applications. Although these tools simplified developing the “shell” of the application, their required integration with databases and other data sources was complex and time consuming.

    Data Sources As I continue to dig into ViziApps® Studio to learn its ins-and-outs by developing increasingly complex mobile apps, I’ve come to appreciate how easy it is to create connections to a wide assortment of data sources — from traditional SQL databases (both cloud-based and on-premises) to cloud-based platforms including Quick Base® to Google spreadsheets to IoT data sources like ThingWorx®. Figure 1 shows the ViziApps Studio pull down menu for supported data sources; and within the SQL Database category, there are nine supported SQL databases, as shown in Figure 2.

  • DetailMgr – The Critical Foundation to Running the Business

    CP&S Detail supplies appearance services to automobile dealerships onsite.

However, dealerships are challenged to cost-effectively staff and maintain detailing services given the inconsistency of labor demands over the course of any given month. This is where CP&S Detail comes in.

    CP&S Detail has been providing automotive dealers with innovative products, services, and solutions for over 26 years. CP&S offers a complete line of chemicals and equipment, a trained labor force, Car Wash Systems, Automotive Detailing Services, and related training.

    To deliver the automotive detailing services required by the dealerships, CP&S Detail needed an effective mobile workflow app, DetailMgr, that they could easily use to manage their work shifts and provide CP&S management with visibility and accountability of their work results. DetailMgr needed to track each employee, what they are paid, the hours they work, the tasks they completed and how efficiently they completed each task. Capturing these data points using DetailMgr tells CP&S Detail in real time if they are making money and what adjustments are needed at each dealership.

  • Large Retailer’s Mobile App Helps Speed Delivery Error Corrections

    Check out a new case study we want you to take a look at. We think you’ll be suitably impressed.

    This case study involves a large retailer operating many department stores and a sizable online business, worldwide. They had a problem they wanted to solve. At its many warehouses, the retailer looked to replace a time-consuming and labor-intensive process used to report on and launch corrective action with the correct product supplier for quality and damage issues of incoming goods -– a process that involved three workers, a camera, and a clipboard.

    Sounds like old school, doesn’t it?


    Delivery Error Corrections appThe retailer's Operations Logistics team used ViziApps to rapidly create a mobile app that replaced the clipboard, camera, and three workers with one worker and a smartphone -- reducing their inspection and reporting times and costs as much as 65%. And, they did it while leveraging their Quick Base® investment.
