Mipela GeoSolutions has launched X-Info WebConnect – a business tool that allows users to search, explore, modify and analyse data from multiple business systems anywhere that an internet connection is available, using a modern desktop or touch-based hand-held device.
Mipela GeoSolutions managing director, Hayden McDonald, said the company was embracing the shift toward web-based application delivery in response to the growing trend in mobile workforces and flexible workplace arrangements.
“Across numerous industries, people are no longer sitting at desktops in centralised offices five days a week; they’re on the road, on site or in remote offices – and they don’t only work nine to five,” Hayden said.
“We developed X-Info WebConnect so that today’s mobile workers can analyse data within and beyond the confines of the office network, and make business decisions on-the-go,” he said.
“In the same way that they can currently access email, calendars and the internet, mobile or remote workers can quickly and conveniently navigate company databases – that were designed for the desktop – using screens the size of their smartphone or tablet.
“They can also access critical business information 24/7 from a desktop in their home or clients’ offices – any place at all where they can connect to the internet.”
According to Mipela GeoSolutions business development manager, Mikko Salonen, the beauty of X-Info Connect is its adaptability and flexibility.
“X-Info WebConnect adapts its interface to suit any device, regardless of operating system or browser,” Mikko said.
“It’s also fully customisable and suits any sized business across a range of industry sectors: simply define the corporate database connections required and it will tailor its interface to each individual business and the needs of their users,” he said.
“X-Info WebConnect will adapt to all major database applications including Oracle and Microsoft SQL, but also has its own database capacity and can import business information from any source including Microsoft Access or Excel into the server version,” he said.
“WebConnect allows businesses to have role-based access by defining user groups and security levels, thus simplifying the task of locating data by showing only those fields that are relevant to particular user groups.
“Plus, it has a very logical interface that makes complex business information simple to navigate, even for inexperienced users.”
As expected, WebConnect links in with the full X-Info suite of products including X-Info Maps, so users can navigate map databases out in the field.
