It took the full effort of both teams to quickly pull off these fully secure native mobile apps. The whiteboards, conference calls, web conferences at all hours, testing, beta testing, GUI refinement, feature additions and deletions, flights, patient families, cool heads, and cool coding culminated to these events.

A kiosk, now in your hand

Although our President and COO Wayne McHugh can actually move a kiosk, he has to use both hands, and it won’t fit in his pocket. Now, with the Money Earned app, anyone can get a Money Earned anytime and anywhere. Money Earned is set up with our authorized agent’s reloadable debit card. Wayne appreciates this app as it’s much more flexible to demonstrate. Our customers will like using it.

Simple to get Money Earned Apps

Once a company gets Money Earned, free, the employee downloads the app.

They’ll add their phone number and then get a temporary PIN. From there on, if they’ve earned their income they can get it before pay day, sending a Money Earned to a reloadable debit card via the ME apps.  Here are the screen shots that show the process through to confirmation.

Advanced Terminal Remote Management

While we’ve been scaling up the TaaS platforms deployment, our team has been working in parallel on several remote service features.

At Ganart, we believe in standardizing repeatable processes and develop frameworks to support the automation of them. It has enabled us:

  • To focus on new initiatives and keep support calls down to the minimum.
  • Automation processes also have become very handy for our technicians.
  • A great timesaver to control and assist kiosks out in the field while techs are on call.

One such automated framework developed as part of our Terminal Management Network (TMN) is called MeCocoon. It lets us monitor, manage, control, and remotely configure endpoints as well as support escalation. We recently beta tested the framework on some of the Ganart kiosk endpoints. The results met our expectations.

MeCocoon is now being actively being used by Ganart’s customer support and production support. Some of the features include, maintain network heartbeats, get remote diagnostic information about the kiosk and the ability to remotely recycle the kiosk. With a RESTful architecture, many more features are being designed and some are in implementation phase to the TMN.

The main design parameters for MeCocoon were to maintain a simple client interface (easy adoption), highly asynchronous mode of functionality and great security. The features are assignable, subject to personnel job description, or client’s needs. The MeCocoon services work on mobile platforms too. We actively use MeCocoon this way on Android and iPhone.

Mobile marketing – Who is making profit?

Mobile marketing has been growing worldwide and will reach $20.6 billion by 2015. I have seen several ad campaigns by companies and there is a huge rush for companies to make it out there. But who is making the profit so far? Wireless companies, technology providers, few ad networks, publishers and consumers.

Advertisers are the ones who are spending all the money and they are making none or less profit. Why is this happening? They should be the ones who must be getting the most profit. I guess, they don’t realize what they are paying for. Well in that case mobile marketing is not going to reach its potential.

May be these could help?

  •  gathering statistics, which will give in-depth visibility about the ongoing campaigns which can help future campaigns.
  •  Try out precision marketing based on real time data analysis which are captured.
  •  Find out the effective market segment to drive the campaigns.
  •  Most importantly find out for every dollar spend how can companies maximies the returns.

Once advertisers can fully optimize their campaigns and once inventories have been set free to enable unlimited open trading, the actualization of mobile’s full potential will be possible.
