DronaHQ announced the release of offline capabilities for all applications built and being built on the no-code platform. Offline capability is going to allow transactional business apps to function effectively at all times even while they are disconnected from a network.
“Many businesses are turning to no-code solutions when developing applications, particularly mobile apps. This new feature is going to be empowering especially for all the remote field force to get more work done while on the job by taking away repeating data-entry tasks," says Divyesh Kharade CTO at DronaHQ.
A classic example where the offline capability will come in handy is a scenario where construction company field force is working at remote locations with little to no connectivity with the back-office. For instances like an on-sea project or far-off site construction project, a lot of crucial business information such as GPS location, resources consumption, progress reports, on-site manager approvals, capturing of images, signatures and more needs to be recorded frequently. Typically these tasks are paper or excel-based, requiring employees to re-enter information to their internal enterprise systems. Now, with offline capability, field staff can use smartphones, tablets, laptops or rugged devices to directly capture information on the apps that syncs to the database as soon as network connectivity is achieved.
"Offline capability in apps is a must and it was always our plan to introduce it on our platforms for the customers. Keeping the field force motivated to perform their duties actively, making the most of their time with an effortless solution was something we could sense our customers need and it pushed up to take this feature as a priority to launch," says Jinen Dedhia, MD at DronaHQ.
Offline capability is now generally available to all customers building their apps on the no-code platform DronaHQ. All apps built previously on the platform can leverage this feature.
Forrester Research had identified this capability as “often the most important and difficult mobile feature” for business and “a consideration for nearly every future modern application” in its September 2014 report, The Offline Mobile Challenge. “It is a great milestone achieved in the no-code space, taking us one step further to make DronaHQ robust and let our customers work without any limits. We look forward to seeing how applications will keep on transforming business with offline capability provided to app users,” says Jinen.
