Verizon Releases Field Force Manager App for Android

While the Android operating system has gained tremendous popularity among consumers since its release, it has not been a key focus for business use, until recently.

Verizon recently released a new version of it’s Field Force Manager application allowing businesses to easily locate, monitor, and communicate to workers outside of the office.

The new Andriod app offers a rich user interface especially for touch screens, barcode scanning, and powerful search options. There are even two different versions of the app—Limited and Basic, so businesses can choose the version that best fits their needs.

Since Verizon has an extensive offering of Android smartphones, it makes sense that their Field Force Manager is being offered, with the following enhanced features:

  • New User Interface
  • Powerful Search
  • Easy Touch Screen Access
  • Built-In Barcode Scanning

While the Field Force Manager App on an Android device seems like a great idea for businesses, I wonder how it will compare to a traditional EDA. What about the infamous battery life of the Android? Will it be able to keep up with today’s challenging business needs? What do you think? Let us know by commenting here, or on our Facebook or Twitter pages.
