ServeU Launches Two B2B Mobile Applications For Corporate Clients

ServeU, one of the UAE’s leading facilities management (FM) solutions provider and a subsidiary of Union Properties, has launched two B2B mobile applications for clients with residential and commercial properties. This move comes in line with the company’s digitalisation strategy, which is aimed at enhancing customer interaction and satisfaction, primarily during emergency situations.

With the rapid technological advancements and introduction of innovative mobile applications in the industry, the FM sector is also facing a transformational phase. ServeU has launched the first of its kind B2B mobile applications for the FM sector that facilitates seamless interactions with the corporates directly and allows them to log in service requests in a minute. The apps enable rescheduling of planned maintenance as per client’s convenience, which is directly reflected in the ServeU technician app.

These apps have been specifically designed and developed on Microsoft’s backend system in Dynamic 365 Field Service to provide visibility of asset history, lifecycle, and planned maintenance, as well as tracking the breakdown of each asset.

Gary Reader, General Manager of ServeU, said: “The journey and progress of the facilities management industry in the past few years has been incredible. As the years go by, the boundaries of the FM sector have been expanding, and companies are constantly adapting to new and innovative technological advancements, meeting market expectations and revamping working practices to address future challenges. It has been crucial to adopt mobile and flexible methods to keep up the pace with the rapid technological developments in the industry.”

He added, “Our vision in the present digitalised FM ecosystem is to maintain our momentum and methods to address emergencies and problems faced by our clients. We are always exploring various avenues to upgrade and develop our solutions and services. This is the first time a B2B facilities management app has been introduced in the Middle East region and we are aiming at positioning this as a trendsetter. We are proud of achieving another notable milestone in our journey.”

Previously, ServeU had developed and released the ‘ServeU Essentials’, a B2C mobile application available on iOS and Android, which enabled customers to make online bookings, process cashless payments, and manage subscriptions virtually.

ServeU has been developing and innovating its services to provide customers with effective, efficient, and round-the-clock FM services, allowing the company to match the speed of the ever-evolving FM market.

Govt launches Indian Sign Language mobile app ‘Sign Learn’ with 1,000 words

The Centre on Friday launched an Indian Sign Language (ISL) dictionary mobile application called ‘Sign Learn’ containing 10,000 words.

The app was launched by Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Pratima Bhoumik.

Sign Learn is based on the Indian sign language dictionary of the Indian Sign Language Research And Training Centre (ISLRTC) which contains 10,000 words.

The app is available in Android as well as iOS versions, and all the words in the ISL dictionary can be searched through Hindi or English medium, officials said.

The sign videos of the app can also be shared on social media.

“The app has been developed to make the ISL dictionary easily available and to make it more accessible for the public at large,” a senior official said.

Notably, ISLRTC had recently signed an MoU with the Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) on October 6, 2020 for converting NCERT textbooks from classes 1 to 12 into the Indian Sign Language (digital format) to make the textbooks accessible to children with hearing disabilities.

This year, ISL e-content of NCERT textbooks of class 6 was launched, the official added.

Under Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Centre had launched ISL versions of selected books of Book Trust’s ‘Veergatha’ series.

With the joint effort of ISLRTC and NCERT, 500 academic words in Indian Sign Language were launched. These academic words are used at the secondary level which are often used in history, science, political science and mathematics, the official added.

Socket Mobile Launches SM Keyboard Application on iOS with SocketCam C820 Support

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), a leading provider of data capture and delivery solutions designed to enhance workplace productivity, is excited to launch its SM Keyboard application that includes support for free camera-based scanning with SocketCam C820.

Socket Mobile provides a set of utility applications to reduce the complexity of data capture integration and to help enhance productivity. Specifically, the SM Keyboard is designed to address the challenges users face when using their Socket Mobile barcode scanners with multiple apps running in different modes. Typically, the Socket Mobile barcode scanner is fully controlled by an application that has integrated Socket’s CaptureSDK to maximize the utility and end-user productivity, which requires the scanner to be in App mode. However, Socket Mobile has found that an increasing number of end-users also want to use the scanner with non-scanner-aware applications such as a web browser, Excel, or Word. This requires the end-user to use the scanner in a basic mode, which emulates a keyboard. Switching modes is a time-consuming and complicated process, so to eliminate this tedious step, Socket Mobile is launching the SM keyboard to enable the end-user to use the device with both scanner-enabled and non-scanner-enabled apps on the same device without switching modes.

The SM Keyboard provides an excellent user interface and experience, including support for the SocketCam C820. SocketCam was launched earlier this year by Socket Mobile and turns the camera on any smartphone or tablet into a free, high-performance barcode scanner. The combination of SocketCam and the SM Keyboard allows users to utilize their smart device camera for scanning data into any application of their choice without worrying about whether the application supports an additional hardware scanner or SDK. Users can even scan data into an application they control themselves, enabling full control of the data capture experience for the user.

Using a smartphone or tablet camera for data capture provides a new level of flexibility, speed, and simplicity to daily scanning activities. The SocketCam C820 enables users free, user-friendly barcode and QR code scanning capabilities without having to purchase any additional hardware. This allows end-users to experience the capabilities and benefits of barcode scanning without requiring a large initial investment into physical barcode scanners. This is an ideal option for users who are new to scanning, have low scanning volume, or simply need to test out their daily scanning needs.

The SM Keyboard provides a data capture solution that is exceedingly faster, more reliable, and less error-prone than manually inputting data into an application. It gives new users a unique opportunity to try out barcode scanning for free while also maximizing the usage for those already utilizing a Socket Mobile barcode scanner. In addition, the enhanced SM Keyboard guides users through the process of enabling, selecting, and launching the keyboard for use. It provides full support for the user throughout the setup experience and provides users with intuitive directions to follow to get the keyboard up and running.

The SM Keyboard with SocketCam C820 is free for download from the Apple App Store. For users who need additional performance or have enhanced scanning needs, there will be future installments of SocketCam that will be subscription-based and have more advanced scanning capabilities. Users can also upgrade to a Socket Mobile hardware scanner should they find that their needs are expanding.

Socket Mobile is dedicated to providing the tools and support for its users to maximize productivity throughout the data capture journey. Whether you are a new user to barcode scanning or are already utilizing Socket Mobile’s hardware scanners, the SM Keyboard App provides another enhancement to ensure the best possible data capture experience.
