There is a mobile revolution under way, and many businesses are taking advantage of the technological advances, including mobile web development with HTML5, that enable communication and access using today's Smartphones, Tablets and other mobile devices.
It was predicted in the early part of this century that mobile phone users will spend more time on the wireless Internet than making wireless phone calls by the end of 2010. This has proven to be true!
HTML5 based and/or native Apps built for Apple iOS, Google Android, BlackBerry, now enable you to conduct secure transactions from practically anywhere. Mobile apps can also significantly enhance the productivity of your mobile employees.
Whitecap has been working in the area of mobile and wireless application development for more than ten years, and has developed significant expertise in this area. Our very first mobile application was written as a native Java application for the BlackBerry back in 1999. It was a pilot project for doctors and physicians in Ontario to test electronic script writing that would replace handwritten scripts.
In 2005, Whitecap was selected by Woodbine Entertainment Group to design and develop Canada's first and only Government approved wireless wagering system, for horse racing in Canada. Highly integrated with WEG's various mainframe systems, the system was designed both for Pocket PC's, as well as most WAP-based cell phones. As you might imagine a system of this nature must be optimized for speed and performance in order to perform these transactions in "near real-time". More importantly, Internet security must be of the highest order and of the highest priority. All of these requirements were achieved regardless of the fact that the technology and wireless infrastructure available at that time was still very rudimentary compared to the kind of smartphone applications we are developing for our customers today.
Compared to even a few years ago, Wireless technology and infrastructure has finally arrived and today would very much be considered mainstream versus those pioneer apps of yesteryear! More and more of our customers are looking to Whitecap to assist them to achieve higher levels of productivity and create whole new efficiencies by migrating applications that lend themselves well to the newest smartphone technologies from companies such as Apple, RIM and Google.
Whitecap truly understands what it takes to design, develop as well as host and manage your wireless Internet-based applications on an ongoing basis. With our experience and expertise, we can help your company apply wireless technology where it makes sense for you.
