• Apple and IBM Release 10 Additional MobileFirst Enterprise Apps



    Apple and IBM recently announced 10 new MobileFirst enterprise apps raising the total to 32 released apps while focusing on several new areas including business travel, shift management and field operations. As usual, the business apps cover a variety of different categories.

    The travel apps released by the partnership include Travel Plan, which offers trip recommendations and itineraries on an iPhone and Travel Track, which provides information on an iPhone or Apple Watch while a trip is in progress, with an emphasis on linking up business colleagues.

    The shift management tools with this set of releases includes Shift Sync for the iPhone and Apple Watch and Shift Track for the iPad. Together the apps let workers submit time-off requests and accept or decline shifts, while allowing managers to authorize and track coverage changes. Several field work apps were also released including Expert Resolve, Asset Inspect, Field Connect and Safe Site. Most of the MobileFirst apps support just one or two Apple devices but the Field Connect app even includes support for the Apple Watch.

    Last but not least, the partnership also yielded two apps for mortgage loan officers including the iPhone-only Loan Track and the iPad-based Loan Advise.

    For those of you who didn’t know, Apple and IBM announced their MobileFirst partnership over a year ago. Since then, the companies have grown much closer and worked together in new ventures into the education and healthcare industries.

    We’ll have to wait and see what else the two release together.
