LAS VEGAS and PHOENIX, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobelisk, a pioneer in modular and programmable Smartcases to meet highly-customized mobile enterprise workforce needs, today announced its partnership with Rapid Applications Group (Rapid Apps), the leading provider of software and GPS telematics solutions for the Concrete Pumping industry to introduce the Rapid Go! Tab. Utilizing Mobelisk's Chimera Smartcase, Rapid Apps was able to create a tablet solution for the field that is as rugged as it is functional, making full use of the Chimera Smartcase's extended battery life, vehicle mounts, programmable buttons, and Software Development Kit (SDK) to enhance the mobility and overall usability of its market leading applications. Together, the companies will showcase the integrated Rapid GO! tab solution in the Rapid Apps booth #C6343 at the World of Concrete 2017 event taking place January 17 - 20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The Mobelisk Chimera Smartcase offers a flexible, modular, and durable solution that can be custom-tailored for companies seeking to deploy tablets to their field forces, at scale and on budget. Chimera transforms affordable off-the-shelf hardware into highly durable, enterprise solutions that meet the specific needs of any workforce. More than just a durable case, Chimera can be fully integrated with proprietary applications with the aid of the Mobelisk SDK - complete with easily programmable LED buttons to help streamline application usage by employees in the field. Modules range from barcode scanners, magnetic card readers, RFID scanners, secondary long-life rechargeable battery, quick-connect vehicle mounts, and more.
"A disconnected mobile workforce can be costly and inefficient, and with the Rapid GO! Tab built on Mobelisk Chimera, Rapid Apps is now able to offer an innovative solution that meets the rugged demands of construction workers to significantly improve the management of human capital in the field," said Matthew Bullis, Managing Member of Rapid Applications Group. "Rapid Apps has partnered with other industry leaders to provide meaningful integrated solutions, but adding such important always-connected hardware to our ERP system is a first, and would not have been possible without Mobelisk."
Mobelisk is Rapid Apps' exclusive hardware manufacturer of the Rapid GO! Tab. The tablet is the only rugged hardware solution specially designed for the demands of the concrete pumping industry.

Tab, based on the Mobelisk Chimera integrated enterprise platform, is the first solution to deliver always-connected mobile workforce management to the concrete pumping industry - supporting immediate, secure access to information on the go, for improved business process management.
"This is the first real integrated deployment of Chimera to take full advantage of our solution in a very specific industry," said Dennis Hamann, Founder and CEO of Mobelisk. "We facilitated this optimized hardware and software appliance to give Rapid Apps a competitive edge, while simplifying the user interface to achieve both practicality and efficiency -- which is the essence of the platform. Rapid Apps is a great partner to make the first big splash with our platform, which is just scratching the service on the broad applications of Chimera across industries."
