There's an (Industrial) App for That

Keywords: Manufacturing App, Industrial App, Smart Mobile Devices.

We are in the midst of an explosion of smart mobile IT devices. These range from recently introduced, wrist-mounted "smart watches" to "phablets" that combine features and functions of both smartphones and tablet computers, and other smart mobile devices. In parallel, developers are introducing thousands of new software applications every week designed to run on these very cool mobile devices.

Most people are familiar with mobile, lifestyle-focused applications through their Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone, or other mobile devices. More and more people are using these mobile "apps" in their day-to-day lives for banking, shopping, reading books, watching movies, getting directions, checking e-mail, and monitoring social media. Increasingly, people are also using mobile devices "on the job" for work functions.

While this trend started in office and commercial environments, it has rapidly migrated to the industrial sector, for which automation and other solution providers have rolled out a slew of new industrial apps designed to increase productivity and keep mobile workers better connected and better informed.

Interestingly, many of today's new software solutions feature "app-like" functionality and user interfaces, whether or not intended for use by mobile workers. These app-like solutions are ideal for companies that only want to employ or purchase specific functionality.
