Coming to the enterprise world, mobile field personnel are lost when they are out in the field for getting a real-time notification about the inventory or even get an idea about a sales visit address. Sales orders are usually done manually and then entered in the system and updated after they are back in their office. The manual input of data is done in the company ERP database. This is absolute wastage of resource time and even the sales order updates are not of real-time nature. Sometimes sales personnel realize that they are short on inventory but are unable to deliver. This creates problems for the sales personnel since they do not have immediate updates. They might even lose the customer’s location and address.

Mobile field service apps are created as Android apps and are usually integrated with ERP solutions so that there is information sync between sales personnel and the database with real-time updates on both sides.

Kongregate Arcade Review (Android Apps)

There, I said it, openly for the whole Internet to notice. I. Am. A. Big. Kid.

Naturally, the initial thing I do when I obtain a phone is to see what games are on it as well as what games I can acquire for it. Around a year ago, I by chance discovered an awesome Flash games site called Kongregate. The games were ALL free of charge and they had a lot of games I loved the first time I played them. Fast forward a year toward these days and I’m still an passionate fan. Kongregate became so prevalent that they were actually bought out last summer by GameStop as a way for them to get into online gaming.

Then the next big bad-ass event happened.

They made an Android App. And got it right. I resisted the alluring drag it had on my hand every time I switched on my cellular phone. I resisted until a few days ago when I had a flash of frailty and I downloaded the app and my first two games, Without Charge, which is the way I roll.

3 days later, I am still playing a game called ‘Zilch,’ which could very well be the second-most addicting game I’ve ever downloaded into my HTC Incredible. (The original was Angry Birds, naturally!) In the same way as the regular Kongregate site, the games are hit-or-miss. Zilch is brilliantly prepared as are a few of the other games that released mobile versions. A few of them still need work; although, that’s no different from their online site. Seeing that the app and the games are roughly all free you have persons of all knowledge levels attempting to develop games, frequently with startlingly high-quality results. I’ve played a lot of games at the site that are comparable with releases from major studios from back in the day.

All in all, this app is without doubt worth checking out. (Just do not download Zilch unless you have 2-3 days to kill!)
