Mobile Scanning Software

Asset Tracking Mobility Solution

CATS Mobility can help asset-intensive enterprises address the unique challenges in maintaining visibility, insight, and control of their mission critical assets.  These assets are typically distributed across geographies, and often located in remote areas.  The people who service and operate those assets are often distributed, mobile, and work every possible environment across the back office, warehouse, and field.

You can integrate CATS Mobility to any OSS, BSS, or ERP System, providing a critical IoT gateway to the expensive systems you already invested in. 

This highly configurable mobile solution works on any major scanner or smartphone scanning platform, so people can bring their own device, or use one given to them by a company.   Most solutions are supplier centric, in that one size fits all, unless there is an expensive change request.  The fulcrum solution is customer centric, and can be easily adapted to how you work, where you work. 

CATS has over 50 mobility routine templates that can be used 'as is' or easily configured and customized for specific job functions and roles.  We can also create customized routines from scratch that can turn your device into a powerful, intelligent, and flexible field tool that supports your unique business and process workflows.

CATS has an intuitive template which can e used to easily create new custom routines - and any of the new routines can collect required (and optional) data based on the user's role, their job function, and permissions.

There are four ways to capture data with CATS Mobility computing.  Users can type in the input, perform a search, scan an item, or select from a pre-defined list.

There are additional controls available with the tap of a button - such as accessing profiles, routines, inventory, validation files and more.  And enterprise grade security keeps your data locked down from end-to-end.  This includes secure log-on, user limited permissions, and encrypted password protection.  You can connect in real-time through a secure transport layer behind your own firewall.

We also know you wont always be connected, so we give you the option of working online or offline.  For offline users, we collect the information in batch files and upload the information when you connect next. 

Find out how you can use CATS Mobility solutions to get visibility, gain insight, and take control of your assets from end-to-end.

Secure Mobile Phone Scanning Software

When choosing a mobile solution front end to track and manage your critical assets, infrastructure, and equipment, you need to consider a few “must-have” features.  

First, you should have a mobility solution that can be configured to let any worker in any environment scan 1D, 2D, or Micro PDF barcodes.  You also want that mobile software to work on any major scanner or smartphone scanning platform, so you have flexibility, choices, and known interfaces.  Whether your people are in the field, the warehouse, or back office, they will need a reliable, consistent method of capturing ALL transactional data to feed your fixed asset database.  From an ergonomic perspective, you want that worker to perform asset scans with the least amount of attempts required, capturing asset data as it flows organically throughout its lifecycle.

And every role throughout the supply chain workflow is unique, with a unique set of needed functionality.  Because of this, you want a solution that has multiple-step processes which can be configured for different types of users. 

When tracking assets to the tops of snowy mountains and into rattlesnake infested cell sites in the desert, we have learned a valuable lesson; you also never know when you’re going to be connected, so your solution needs to work perfectly online, and can perfectly collect data in a ‘batch mode’ when offline. 

Lastly, in this era where intellectual property as a competitive advantage in the enterprise, having enterprise-grade security from end-to-end for your mobile solution is invaluable.   This level of security ensures your collected proprietary data remains uncompromised.  It requires having a secure log-on, user limited permissions, and encrypted password protection.  It should also allow you to connect in real-time and through a secure transport layer behind your own firewall.

These are all best practices that we’ve implemented in major Communication Service Providers in North America and abroad.  If you want to talk with one of our consultants on how to perfect your enterprise mobile scanning, email INFO@Fulcrum.net.  We would love to help.
