Event Details

Do your employees in the field rely on a paper-based process to do their jobs? Are they tied to a single mobile platform and device to perform their tasks? While in the field are they able to access the most recent data and content they need?

By enabling your field staff with a native mobile application optimized for their mobile devices, with content and data storage in the Cloud, you can free them from duplicate data entry, and give them secure access to the most current business data they need to do their jobs.

Join Microsoft, BlueMetal, Apprenda and Xamarin for a half-day in-person event to see how you can enable your field agents, radically improving their processes and customer response time while efficiently managing your infrastructure and sharing your application code across platforms.

 You will learn:
 - the enablement opportunities provided by mobility and the cloud
 - latest capabilities you could be tapping into
 - pitfalls to avoid
 - how to expand your reach across devices and platforms

The event is scheduled from 1-5 pm with a cocktail reception immediately following.
