The mobile application provides a mobile extension to the corporate systems allowing the Field Workers to work with data remotely. It is specifically designed to work in an occasionally connected mode allowing for imperfections in the mobile networks. The mobile application communicates with the Mobile Application Server using the Retriever synchronisation protocol. Mobile applications are not limited by device and can operate on Windows, iOS and Android.
Retriever’s security module ensures that only authorised users have access to the Mobile Application Server. HTTPS is used to ensure security of data transfer.
The K9 runtime handles:
- executing the compiled business logic
- the data persistence to the offline database
- reliable and secure background synchronisation
