Newest release of iApp software platform, Cobalt, is packed with new tools for building, deploying and managing scalable RFID, GPS and IoT (Internet of Things) applications for the enterprise.
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — InSync Software, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise IoT and RFID software, today announced the availability of its iApp application platform, Cobalt Release 5. InSync’s award-winning iApp platform powers Fortune 500 companies’ RFID, GPS and sensor-driven asset tracking and management applications, helping these businesses locate and track mission-critical assets and improve efficiency in operations.
Central to the iApp Cobalt release, is the introduction of two modules – Vista(TM), a revolutionary customizable dashboard and report builder module, and ActionView(TM), an intelligent drag-and-drop form builder that can also subscribe to real world events generated by any RFID or IoT device. The Cobalt release of the iApp platform also features an assortment of added and enhanced functionalities around building enterprise IoT applications and accessing iApp services from any mobile device.
iApp Cobalt now provides native support for building HTML5 applications. Using the HTML5 UI widgets, partners and customers can quickly build cross-browser applications that can be accessed from mobile devices like iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Windows surface and others. As RFID deployments go beyond pilots to the entire enterprise, Cobalt’s high availability features are especially suited with its ability to either scale horizontally or vertically based on the application need.
Cobalt’s iApp form builder, ActionView(TM), is completely flexible and allows the user to set-up custom fields which are relevant to a customer’s specific business process in order to easily manage and make sense of the RFID and sensor information. Each of these fields can be configured to process sensor data, making RFID and sensor information meaningful for the application.
The iApp Vista(TM) report builder allows the user to create one or many data sources from any data stored in the iApp repository. After configuring the data sources, users can build single or multi-panel UIs with a just a few clicks, and make these accessible in the iApp application. iApp Vista(TM) supports the creation of smart grids, charts, graphs and images, all in a single canvas. Now users can configure an RFID device, collect the data and immediately visualize the data through a set of dashboards and reports.
“The iApp Cobalt release is positioned to address the needs of our customers and partners as they move beyond preliminary and simple applications to multi-modal enterprise-wide deployments.” says Ravi Panja, CEO and Co-founder of InSync. “In addition, using our cloud-based offering, customers and partners can build Enterprise IoT and RFID applications using Cobalt’s rich API’s and configuration tools”.
