Hyland Launches New OnBase Mobile Briefcase Capabilities to Empower Global Mobile Workforce
According to a report by Strategy Analytics, the global mobile workforce is set to increase to 1.75 billion in 2020. To support these mobile knowledge workers, Hyland is launching new OnBase mobile briefcase capabilities, providing secure access to traveling employees and those in the field — from sales forces to HR recruiters to visiting nurses — and drive business processes using handheld tablet devices without an internet connection.
Hyland has been developing the OnBase Mobile apps since 2009 and was among the first in its industry to natively develop a mobile app for content management with remote access to documents, forms and processes. In an effort to continue to improve the mobile working experience of the global workforce, Hyland has added offline access to the breadth of its mobile functionality.
While connected through the OnBase Mobile 16 for iPad or Windows apps, users can save copies of documents, forms and images to a mobile briefcase within the app for secure offline access. While offline, users can reference documents, add, modify and delete notes and annotations, add photos and images, and complete and edit forms. Once an internet connection is re-established, the app synchronizes all changes, modifications and additions within OnBase.
'We are consistently advancing our technology to ensure all of our end users have immediate access to the information they need, especially when network connectivity is sparse or nonexistent,' said Brenda Kirk, senior vice president of corporate strategy and product. 'New mobile briefcase functionality jump‐starts processes that depend on offsite data collection, driving out delays that result from duplicate data entry or missed paperwork, effectively increasing performance and productivity — even when workers are on the go.'
In addition to helping eliminate stalled business processes, mobile briefcase features reduce printing costs and resource drains by using electronic copies and creating electronic forms. Organizations may also uphold tight audit control by tracking disconnected document changes and posting to document history upon sync. Moreover, once documents are ported to the mobile briefcase, users must still log in to the OnBase Mobile app for access ensuring security of important documents, even if the device is lost or stolen.
