We are proud to announce that we’re extending the UBIK® ecosystem to the iOS platform soon. While most of our regular users still require rugged devices for their daily work, which has always excluded iOS as a valid operating system (no, we still don’t believe in casings, sorry), there is a growing number of UBIK®-users that work within a limited, but interesting scope.
The maintenance manager, who wants to get a quick overview on the status of work during a meeting with the production manager, is certainly one of them. The operator in the control room, external staff in non-hazardous areas during commissioning, or workers in facility management scenarios are other examples, and there are many more.
But it won’t just be yet another UBIK® client. It will leverage the full capabilities of our well-proven UWP-client under the hood, while still being native to iOS for full performance. And we even made our XAML-templating technology available there. This will enable our customers to leverage the full power of Apple Hard- and Software, tailor data models perfectly to their needs (as usual in UBIK®) and also shape the User Interface of the App to maximize user-acceptance.
This is yet another important step in making UBIK® truly ubiquitous. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you want to join our Early-Access-Program for UBIK® on iOS already today, at iOS@augmensys.com!
