Challenges of Mobilizing SAP MM with Xamarin - Introduction


Introduction

Information Technology is constantly changing and evolving. In this rapid world of change, we can not afford to be idle, and wait for miracles. We must learn and be up-to-date in Information Technologies, and we must keep up-to-date our IT infrastructures as well. What we find effective and modern today, can be obsolete tomorrow, which may lead to miss future opportunities!

For example in the early days, "Warehouse Management" happened in simple checked notebooks, after the Industrial Revolution, storekeepers used check out systems with punch cards to keep up the pace with their competitors, followed by, they started using bar-coding and inventory management systems to make their tasks easier, precise and efficient, today, we use modern ERP systems to automatize and integrate everything with everything, besides this we use RFID to keep track and find our goods in our warehouses.

Moving Forward

To keep up the pace with you competitors, you must move forward and break away from your computers. If you like it or not, mobile apps are integral part of business by now. Today, many companies already use business apps in Field Service, Human Resource, Inventory, IT, and Customer Relationship Management.

Using business mobile apps, we are able to make our processes more transparent, and get real-time feedback from our colleagues that accelerates and improves our processes, and eliminates human errors.
