28 May Sofbang Launches Mobile Showcase Applications For Oracle Public Sector SOFBANG LAUNCHES MOBILE SHOWCASE APPLICATIONS FOR ORACLE PUBLIC SECTOR Sofbang Mobile Showcase Applications for Oracle Public Sector shows the value of utilizing mobility in government, healthcare and higher education organizations. Chicago, IL May 28, 2015 –Sofbang, a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) announces the launch of Sofbang’s Mobile Showcase Applications for Oracle Public Sector now available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. For many years, organizations viewed the desktop as the only way to deliver information from their enterprise applications. However, with the growth in mobile computing, organizations across all industries are looking for robust and powerful applications that are tailored to mobile devices and can provide people with access to information anywhere, anytime. Developed by Sofbang, its Mobile Showcase Applications for Oracle Public Sector demonstrate the power of the Oracle Mobile Application Framework (Oracle MAF) development environment. Oracle Mobile Application Framework (Oracle MAF) is a hybrid mobile framework that enables developers to rapidly develop single-source applications. Oracle MAF provides a visual and declarative development experience and maximizes code reuse resulting in faster development of mobile applications. “Building a mobile app is not a mobile strategy. To Sofbang, a mobile strategy is much more. It is about simplifying your end-user experience, extending backend applications and integrating them with vital business processes across your various lines of businesses and applications. It is about discovering new opportunities for engagement, growth and productivity, while incorporating a sound BYOD strategy and secure, scalable integration practices,” says Danny Asnani, Principal at Sofbang. The following are some examples of Sofbang’s Mobile Showcase Applications for Oracle Public Sector: Streamlined Applications: Metro Schools The Metro Schools Mobile App is a student registration app that enables parents and guardians to enroll their students’ right from their mobile phone. This helps reduce paper processing and the tedious process of filling out paper forms. Parents can receive reminder notifications, access immunization records, and attach required documentation (i.e. birth certificates, proof of address, etc.), without a trip to the school, doctor’s office or post office. Developed for iOS and Android devices using Oracle MAF, this app showcases the benefits of extending a business process to citizens using mobile devices; and it connects to multiple backend data sources including CRMs, SIS and ERP applications, leveraging the REST API’s and open standards found in Oracle’s enterprise products. Citizen Engagement: Metro 311 Metro 311 allows citizens to take an active role in the care of their community by easily submitting non-emergency service requests from their mobile device. The application includes GPS location and photo upload options for all issues including potholes, graffiti, broken water mains and more. By including this additional information directly from the device, responders can quickly locate and identify service issues and respond in a timely manner and the citizen can track the progress of the request. Metro 311 mobile application also allows citizens to receive daily alerts on street closures, view live traffic cams and access services such as trash pickup schedules, routes and much more.
