Satellites cover the sky; antennae cover the mountaintops; wireless broadcasting abounds. Everyone is plugged in, and almost every business depends on around-the-clock mobile accessibility to stay up to the minute with employees, customers, and suppliers.

When employees are on the go and need to stay productive, they would benefit from an offline mobile solution. Native mobile applications act as an interface between a user and their files and data.

When the device is connected to the network, this locally stored data is synced with the main database on a remote server.
