Global tire manufacturer drives forward with mobile applications for AS/400

The world’s leading manufacturer of off-highway tires wanted its engineers to be able to access product information as they walk around the factory floor, away from their computers. The problem? The data was locked in its AS/400 applications, and in separate PDF files on the company’s network. This setup required the engineers to go back and forth between multiple screens on the AS/400, and the PDF files, in order to view all the relevant information for the products they were examining – and they had to be at their desks, working on their desktop computers.
