GBS Mobile enables the sales force of a Leading Global Microscope and Imaging Systems Company
GBS (GROUP Business Software), a global software and services company specializing in enabling organizations with IBM Notes and Domino environments reduce costs and increase returns, announced that it has mobile enabled a mission critical IBM Notes-based sales solution for a leading manufacturer of Scientific Equipment. The Company is a global leader in industrial, medical and consumer markets, specializing in optics, electronics and precision engineering.
GBS enabled the company’s users to access critical functionality and information on their mobile devices (iPads and iPhones) in record time by delivering mobile capability via an XPages-based component. The new Mobile CRM component provides their sales personnel with near real-time forecasting, opportunity management and contact management capabilities on their Apple mobile phones and tablets. In addition, they rely on GBS IntelliPRINT Dashboards, which provides users with advanced, interactive and user-driven reporting and analysis capabilities, also accessible via mobile devices.
With the company investigating ways to mobile enable their Notes applications, it became quickly apparent that GBS’ mobility solution would ensure lower risk and lower total cost of ownership when compared with other options, including migrating business processes to a different platform.
“In order to stay competitive in today’s market our customers need to quickly embrace mobile technologies,” Constanze Zarth, COO of GBS. “IBM’s XPages technology combined with GBS’ mobility expertise has enabled us to provide customers with the desired enhancements to their critical applications and access via any mobile device in a way that minimizes business risk and cost, while delivering rapid results.”
