Cinematronix Deploys Field Service Management Solution from Flowfinity

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a proven provider of enterprise mobile applications, today released a new case study that describes how Cinematronix successfully implemented Flowfinity software to streamline its workforce management. Working at the cutting edge of new cinema technology, they needed a more efficient way to manage, invoice, and track the activities of field technicians across the country for their existing and expanding business volumes.

Cinematronix is the largest provider of cinema equipment and services in Canada. The company used Flowfinity to replace their paper-based system for work orders, dispatch, and billing with an electronic workflow system. Field technicians can now use their smartphones, tablets or a web portal to report on their time, activities, equipment and materials used on jobs.

The software has enabled Cinematronix to eliminate paperwork, reduce the administrative effort required for each job, and achieve better consistency and quicker turnaround on billing. Flowfinity was selected over other solutions for its flexibility to adapt to the company's existing business processes, and the ability to easily integrate with existing back-end systems such as billing and payroll.

"The Flowfinity system represented a shift in approach for both our technical and office teams, with our field service personnel making important changes to how they tracked and reported their work," says Kevin Eagle, Principal, Cinematronix. "We've seen a distinct improvement in productivity with the technicians entering their activities "on-the-go" as the work happens. As a result we have achieved speedier processing and tracking of our past, present and future projects and technicians' activities."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
