The great thing about native apps is that they can work without an internet connection. This allows enterprises to save on data costs and upload cached information once field force staff get back to the office or if necessary, the closest coffee shop.
Field Force Apps – Camera Integration and Storage
HTML5 and web based solutions do not offer camera integration, therefore attaching photos and storing them on the device is unproven. A native app can integrate with the camera application programming interface and store photos on the device. Therefore users can attach photos to forms and other field force initiatives
Field Force Apps – Native Apps Offer Stability
Native based mobile software offers much more stability than web-based solutions, especially when storing and caching photos and media. Since native apps are running off the device and not a browser, they are able to store files without connectivity. HTML5 offers caching capabilities it has yet to be proven for field force enterprise solutions.
Well, there are multiple options when it comes to building a field force app. If you are interested in discussing how we can implement an app that suits your needs and objectives, fly me an email
