theflex. mobile browser for SAP

theflex. is the industrial browser that is especially suitable for application scenarios in logistics, field service and production. Developed for Android devices (Android 4.1.1), it can be used both on devices with and without touch. It is also ideal for using Android devices (handhelds and tablets) in combination with SAP and SAP Fiori apps , but also ITSmobile.

The browser for your future – your advantages at a glance

Increasing digitalisation is a constant process in which old technologies are replaced by new ones. For example, the end of support for the Windows CE, Embedded and Mobile systems has been announced for January 2020.

The sustainable solution for your logistics

Since SAP has already announced that it will increasingly process applications via the web browser system independently of the device, theflex. offers the ideal technology, which is already being used successfully by our customers. The mobile browser supports and optimises the internal process flows along your entire supply chain.

Experience of a Flexus consultant: “theflex.combines the latest web technologies (e.g. SAP-Fiori) with intuitive and optimised operation. Our customers use the camera function, the text-to-speech function and the optimised touch functions to relieve their own employees and make processes smarter, e.g. in order picking.”

Take the next step with the innovative theflex.mobile browser for SAP!

Design your work processes efficiently

Use the entire device screen, as the status and navigation bars usual for Android can now be hidden by the innovative browser.

Another particularly convenient feature for your staff is the automatic selection of keyboards. The appropriate keyboard is displayed according to the input field, so that, for example, only a numeric keyboard is displayed for fields that only require numeric values.

Use the full potential of your hardware

Several hardware functions that are not possible in normal use via a browser become usable.

Among other things, you can use the device’s camera for scanning processes, for example. This means that a booking can be made directly on the spot. Features such as text-to-speech and the signature function can now also be used with theflex.

Make your daily work easier – through small but fine features

By using acoustic signals via the text-to-speech plug-in, you are informed of errors immediately. Error management can thus be optimised and errors avoided in advance.

In addition, the URL to the SAP Fiori Launchpad or ITSmobile service is automatically loaded after one-time installation as soon as you start the app. Access can also be secured by code. Authentication via fingerprint or Face ID is also supported.

All data on processes, messages, errors and technical connection data are automatically stored by theflex.

The advantage for you? This data can be sent automatically to a previously defined group of recipients or accessed at any time via the Flexus Cockpit.

This data can be visualised, selected and evaluated via corresponding Fiori apps or SAP GUI dialogues. In combination with Power-BI or Tableau, errors can be analysed in detail and processes optimised.

You want to log in and out of your development, quality and production systems quickly and conveniently? The multi-SAP login function makes exactly that possible!

All functions can be parameterised directly on the terminal or by rolling out and distributing the settings centrally via the SAP system. This facilitates the work of your in-house IT and supports employees in their daily work.

An optimal connection plays a decisive role for functioning processes. Therefore, it is advisable to carry out regular network checks. As a special extension, theflex. brings this function with it.

The network (time, duration, SSID, BSSID, position, URL, error messages) is automatically monitored during operation. With the scanning of storage locations or machines, the current position is also determined and saved directly in SAP. In combination with the logging function, you can read out this data at any time.

In combination with the Flexus Route Optimiser and the 2D plant overview, you get the data displayed strikingly on your plant map. Alternatively, you can also use the SAP GUI transactions.

Software installation with update management and authorisation checks is an important issue for your IT? Therefore, we provide you with theflex. in a variety of installation and update paths. You choose the right way yourself:

  • External device management system, e.g. SOTI: roll-out with parameterisation
  • Provision via iTunes App Store or Google Playstore worldwide or in defined countries as well as to closed user groups (external & internal) .
  • Provision of the installation files and distribution by your IT

With the additional Plug&Play function for mobile back of the hand scanners, theflex. offers another decisive advantage. Wearables from ProGlove and NIMMSTA can be integrated quickly and easily.

Your advantage – this solution optimises hands-free barcode scanning. Your employees do not need MDEs or smartphones; they are only used in exceptional cases such as error processing.
