Flexus Browser for mobile SAP Apps
With the development of the Flexus Mobile Browser the Flexus AG could develop a further innovative Add-On for SAP Fiori Clients. The trend-setting solution allows especially for logistics interesting, extended application areas.
The increasing digitalization is a constant process in which old technologies are replaced by new ones. For example, the end of support for the Windows systems Windows CE, Embedded and Mobile was announced for January 2020. Many devices of older years of construction, which are used in logistics, use this system, which is in use since the 1990s - with the new Flexus Mobile Browser a trend-setting solution for logistics is now available.
The new Flexus Mobile Browser is the industry browser which is suitable especially for application scenarios in logistics, field service and production. Developed for Android devices (Android 4.1.1) it is applicable on devices with and without touch. Furthermore, it is ideally designed for the use of Android devices (handhelds and tablets) in combination with SAP® and SAP Fiori Apps, but also ITSmobile.
Integration of the hardware functions: Camera function, signature function and light/sound control.
Direct start of the Flexus Mobile Browser at start-up of the device (handheld, terminal, Smartphone, ...)..
Automatic display of the correct keyboard, such as a numeric or alphanumeric keyboard.
Hide common start and navigation bars. More space for the actual application.
Use of SAP Fiori and ITSMobile on all Android devices possible.
Contactless registration of employees in the system. Time efficient and intuitive operation.
Several hardware functions, which are not possible in normal use via a browser, can be used. So by our Flexus solution now among other things the camera of the device z-B- fpr scanning processes can be used. Thus a reservation can be made directly at the place of the event. Also features like Text-2-Speech and signature function can be used with the Flexus Browser now.
Since the devices are often used by several different employees in logistics and similar scenarios, the so-called kiosk mode was integrated. This offers a crucial advantage: The selection of the apps to be seen from start is manually limitable or makes a direct start of the Flexus Mobile Browser possible.
With the application of the Flexus solution the whole device screen can be used additionally, because the status and navigation bars usual for Android can be hidden by the innovative browser from now on. For the employees the automatic selection of the keyboards is particularly comfortable. According to the input field the suitable keyboard is faded in, so that for example with fields, which require only numerical values, also only a numerical keyboard is faded in.
Because SAP® has already announced to handle applications more and more device-independently over the web browser system, the Flexus Mobile Browser offers the ideal technology which is already successfully used by our customers. The Flexus Mobile Browser supports and optimizes the internal process flows along the complete supply chain.
Experience of a Flexus consultant: "The Flexus Mobile Browser combines newest web technologies (e.g. SAP-Fiori) with an intuitive and optimized operation. Our customers use the camera function, the Text-2-Speech function as well as the optimized touch functions of the Flexus Mobile Browser, in order to relieve the own employees and to arrange processes e.g. with the picking, smarter".
