How can I make use of Resco as a platform for mobile app development? How will it benefit my business?
Simple: Create a fully customized mobile solution using Resco’s mobile technology, either to integrate with another backend than Dynamics 365/CRM and Salesforce (e.g. Dynamics AX, NAV, Oracle, SAP, or any other business system) or to create a vertical solution for a specific industry.
Many companies see the implementation of mobile solutions as a necessary step towards successful digital transformation and mobility has become a standard nowadays. With this new technological challenge, system integrators are expected to provide expertise also on the integration of mobility and develop specialist know-how to meet the changing needs of IT departments and organizations.
Therefore, adding support for business mobile solutions and related services to the portfolio has become essential. System integrators need to deploy a mobile strategy that will allow them to implement mobile business applications, and create customized apps – and that’s where Resco platform comes in. On top of Resco’s platform you can build your own solution. It enables you to reduce the costs per solution and at the same time free up resources for other, new projects. Furthermore, specialization boosts growth – you can attract customers by focusing on differentiation and demonstrating that you have the right resources and capabilities for implementing mobile solutions to help with specific customer business challenges.

Where do I get the latest release information on Resco Mobile CRM?
You can find a complete overview of new features and capabilities from each major Resco Mobile CRM update (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) in a press release published in the Newsroom section of our website at the time of the new version’s release.
And to be always one step ahead, you can also become a member of our Beta testing program. Resco partners and customers who express their interest in testing the new version of the application before it goes live will automatically receive a Resco Mobile CRM beta ahead of every new release. It’s not really testing in the traditional sense (for that, we have our own testing department), but rather testing of very specific set of actions relevant for your business scenario so we can avoid any potential troubles a new update might cause to you. This is particularly beneficial for those who have a very heavy customization in place or peculiar settings on the server-side. Simply put, the testing program will help you identify a problem before it becomes one.
