There are thousands of iPhone Apps, iPad Apps, and Android Apps that have been developed to
perform a myriad of tasks and processes. Initially, most of these applications were games intended to
be played on mobile devices. The popularity of these applications led businesses to ponder whether
some of their business process applications that run on desktop platforms and the Web could be
redesigned to run on mobile devices. The answer was a resounding yes!
For example, Nationwide developed the Nationwide® Mobile, a free iPhone App that allows its
insurance policyholders to file a claim on the spot when an accident occurs. The application can snap
pictures of the accident and attach them to the claim data and upload the claim information to a
server. This reduces the length of time to process a claim filed this way. Nationwide competitors have
followed suit and developed iPhone, iPad, and Android applications of their own. Policyholders can
receive messages via Facebook or Twitter.
Other business processes that have been reengineered as a result of mobile computing include Quick
Response (QR) codes which have replaced onedimensional bar codes. They are read using mobile
devices, accepting credit card payments from an iPhone, iPad or Android device, depositing checks
using an iPhone without visiting a bank, and many more.
