Using the aXes Mobile app, applications running on an IBM i server can deliver business information and transactions direct to mobile devices such as Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
Adding the capability for a 5250 application to display information on, and receive information from mobile devices expands the application's data gathering capabilities by scanning barcodes, obtaining location co-ordinates, taking photos or videos, and/or storing data in a local database. This allows applications to capture multiple types of data, simplify the data capture process and improve data quality.
Access your existing applications, start/stop jobs, read spooled file output, and query databases – all from your mobile device.
Mobilizing IBM i applications expands their capabilities beyond the information displayable on a screen. With access to mobile device features including the camera, geo-location services, IBM i programs can capture, manage and display not only screens but also photos, documents, maps, and mobile device geo-location information.
