Mobile App Considerations
If you are thinking of mobility as a strategic opportunity to rethink your business processes, here are a few things to consider:
Can mobile applications help track your mobile workforce?

AT&T offers many mobile resource management applications. One is Xora GPS Locator from AT&T, a powerful, more affordable web-based solution for real-time visibility into mobile workers' locations and activities. It's easy to deploy and requires no additional software on the handset. Employees simply carry a GPS (or non-GPS) smartphone supported by AT&T, and office staff can see where they are using virtually any PC connected to the Internet. When you turn on the phone, Xora GPS Locator starts tracking it.
Can mobile applications integrate easily with your present systems?
The simple answer is yes. Mobile applications from AT&T, whether packaged or developed on the AT&T MEAP solution, conform to new design principles. They are built to be device-agnostic and make use of cross-platform tools to help speed deployment, ease management and minimize costs.
MEAP also streamlines integration with back-end systems, such as Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) or SAP supply chain applications, as well as other applications and databases.
Will your mobile applications be secure?

AT&T offers comprehensive management and security. Powerful authentication protocols help you set the appropriate level of security at the network, application, server and device level.
Can AT&T host and manage your mobile applications?
It's your choice. AT&T can provide hosting services on AT&T dual redundant data centers, or you may opt to host and manage the applications yourself. AT&T has 12 years of hosting and application management experience, and maintains 38 worldwide data centers to host data for companies around the world.
