MobiWork has announced a strategic partnership with South Africa’s fastest growing cloud ERP solutions providers, One Channel, to bring its leading mobile workforce management solutions to the African market.
MobiWork is a complete Mobile Workforce Solution (MWS) that deploys in minutes, empowers the workforce and dramatically improves productivity, information exchange and customer satisfaction.
Hervé Rivère, founder and CEO of MobiWork, is excited to partner with such an innovative and forward thinking company like One Channel. “We have seen a huge adoption of smartphones, SaaS and cloud-based solutions over the past year.”
“We believe that One Channel is the perfect fit, they have the right structure, expertise, dedication and agility of execution in ERP and mobile workforce to help us quickly establish a significant footprint in the African market,” he adds.
Solutions such as MobiWork are true Mobile Workforce Apps and integrate to one’s existing accounting, CRM or ERP solutions. This integration is critical at certain points such as synchronising customer, supplier and inventory lists, invoicing to accounts receivable, costs to general ledger and de-stocking of inventory control systems.
One Channel director Clive Kangisser says thousands of organisations are moving to true cloud ERP and mobile workforce solutions. “PwC has projected that the growth of SaaS will more than double to $78-billion by 2016 while investment in traditional ERP will decline by over 30% to less than $15-billion.”
The benefits of deploying a good mobile workforce application include increased productivity, realtime data updates, productivity and location tracking as well as the elimination of cumbersome paper-based systems. This translates into immediate revenue gains, cost savings and better decision making accompanied by improved customer service.
“In the current economic climate, businesses are looking for solutions to improve their productivity and reduce costs. By using MobiWork smartphone and cloud-based solutions to manage their mobile workforce, they can achieve a real competitive advantage as well as significant savings on their IT expenditures,” he concludes.
