Martin Bertrand from MSB Solutions adopted LiveCode for FM to allow him to deploy his solution into the field where a variety of devices were in use. The users and potential users of Martin’s solution require both iOS and Android support and LiveCode for FM is the answer to delivering this.
The initial client for the MSB solution is a large logistics and distribution company in Ontario Canada, MiniMax Express. They have multiple smaller contracts with companies like UPS and FedEx to deliver items in the region between Montreal and Toronto.
The drivers need to be able to use Android devices, hence the need for LCFM. Another crucial feature offered by LiveCode for FM is the ability to support online and offline syncing, as the the drivers using the MSB app may not always have a connection, but still need to collect and sync data with the system accurately.
Martin was a very early adopter of the LiveCode for FM tool as he realised this would be crucial to the success of the MSB solution. Our team worked closely with Martin to ensure the features he needed were added to LiveCode for FM to faithfully compile his solution on Android with online / offline synchronisation.
Martin used the LCFM native platform to deploy prototypes along the way to pitch to what was initially his potential client. Having won that client with the help of the early prototypes, Martin continued using the tool and testing thoroughly in the field.
As Martin adopted LiveCode for FM early when feature support was not where it is today, we would regularly jump on calls with Martin and address any issues he was finding, both strengthening his solution and the feature coverage in the LiveCode for FM tool.
