Caprabo is a large Spanish supermarket company with 320 supermarkets in Catalonia and Navarra. Caprabo is an IBM i shop using SAP for enterprise management. It also has several proprietary RPG applications and uses ASNA's Visual RPG for its Website.
While Caprabo has a good online presence and even mobile apps for its customers, its back-office applications were still centralized applications with some workflows dependent on Excel. Caprabo wanted to supplement its back-office application with focused mobile replacements.
Caprabo chose ASNA's Mobile RPG to create IBM i smartphone and tablet apps to solve its mobile dilemma. To help get the projects done quickly, Caprabo employed ASNA's Services Team to help build the mobile user interfaces and provide general mobile development knowledge.
The mobile application development efforts at Caprabo have produced much better product loss management, better real-time management data, and improved productivity in general. This new generation of IBM i applications push information and answers to Caprabo users in the field, in real-time. They are no longer tethered to desktop browsers or 5250 emulators to get the answers they need.
