PDA web forms
With the advent of the PDA having mobile internet access comes a whole host of possibilities for exploitation. Internet Explorer
running under Windows CE is a much "slimmer" version of the software you may be used to on your PC. For example, the way it renders
some HTML tags differs slightly on a screen this small. The use of style sheets, font sizes and screen layout is a new challenge
with it being a portrait rather then landscape shape screen.
For Jays Foods we exploited the power of the PDA for their sales reps to go out and do all their clients orders on a PDA thus cutting
down turn-around time and the quality of the orders. Sales have gone up considerably with the sales reps not having to return to the
warehouse out all!
The web form is generated using their web toolkit and downloaded onto a main PC in their office. To help keep down the cost of
data transfer the web form is syncronised onto the PDA hence it not having to be downloaded everytime it needs to be used. The order
is sent and the server replies with a simple confirmation order number. The order is then instantly available to the warehouse
staff for printing off.
