JDH Corrosion Consultants Case Study
JDH Corrosion Consultants is an engineering company specializing in providing consulting services to clients in the fields of water and wastewater treatment and transmission: mining and minerals; aerospace; marine facilities; petroleum refining and distribution; electric power generation; transportation; state and federal government agencies.
JDH Corrosion Consultants, Inc. provides an excellent example of how the new Chatty Apps helped them speed up mobile app development. According to Mr. Mohammad Ali, Vice President and Principal, “Chatty Solutions developed an app that provides mobile user interface for 10 commonly used engineering calculations performed in Google spreadsheet. We are impressed with the speed with which the app was developed without any programming/scripting, the ease with which it can be changed, and the fact that we could use Google spreadsheet sitting in the cloud to do the calculations without having to share the spreadsheet with anyone else.”
In this typical implementation Chatty Apps asks the user for inputs for a complex calculation, uploads the inputs into the Google spreadsheet via Web Services, the spreadsheet does a recalculation, and Chatty Apps downloads the results and presents them in the mobile device. If user has to change a calculation, they can simply change the formulas in the spreadsheet. This is the future of mobile apps which will leverage thousands of existing and proven back office applications residing behind the firewall and part of the existing IT ecosystem that has evolved over the past few decades. Chatty Apps simply extends the user interface of the apps over a secure network to all types of mobile devices.

Sanofi-Aventis Case Study
Sanofi, a diversified global healthcare leader, discovers, develops, and distributes therapeutic solutions to improve the lives of everyone. They work to prevent and treat the diseases that we know of today, as well as those we may face tomorrow. With more than 100,000 dedicated professionals in more than 100 countries, Sanofi is dedicated to advancing healthcare around the world.
Sanofi-Aventis wanted to come up with a mobile solution to increase productivity and operational efficiency. In the pharmaceutical business, time is money. In order to have the desired impact on existing customers, and to attract new customers, Sanofi-Aventis had to innovate quickly. They also needed something that could integrate with their existing software, namely the Intuit Health Portal and SAP. The CIO was looking for something that could be powerful, cost-effective, and rapidly developed.
Chatty Apps was the perfect solution to help Sanofi achieve its goals. Businesses can easily integrate legacy software with Chatty Applications to provide a seamless mobile front-end. Integrating with Intuit Health Portal was no problem; this solution was quickly deployed within a few weeks to run three different Chatty Applications, each with access to the Intuit Health Portal. For SAP, Chatty was competing with SAP-Sybase/Mobility, SAP’s in-house mobile solution. In the end, the CIO chose Chatty over SAP-Sybase due to our superior value proposition and competitive pricing. Because Chatty Studio requires no programming or scripting, they were impressed with the speed, power and reliability delivered. In addition, Chatty Apps were automatically cross-platform, which allowed them them to deploy on the diverse types of employee devices. Sanofi also chose to purchase an on-premise hosting server, which is an option in Chatty services. After a few months, there was a demonstrable increase in employee productivity and the testimonials were positive. Chatty Apps broke the metaphoric chain that tied users to their desks, and allowed them to easily accomplish typically frustrating business processes on the move. Best of all, Chatty was the most cost-effective solution at less than $100 a month.
Sanofi began with 3 Chatty Applications. Now, due to their satisfaction, they plan on deploying 25 Chatty Applications to mobilize even more processes.
Sanofi-Aventis’s success can easily be replicated in other companies with a high number of users. Below is statistical evidence demonstrating how a mobile strategy increases businesses productivity, operational efficiency, and even employee satisfaction.
Global Bank of Panama Case Study
Global Bank started operations in 1994. It was originally conceived as a purely corporate bank, however, due to the considerable growth of the early years and the vision of being a major player in Panama’s financial sector, in 1999 they acquired 100% equity interest of Colabanco, becoming the first banking group that started the bank mergers and acquisitions in Panama.
At present, with only 18 years of operation, they are the second largest Panamanian private bank in capital asset size and branch network.
The Global Bank of Panama hoped to create a car loan process application for their customers. The bank planned a country-wide rollout of their loan process application across Blackberry, Android, iPhone and mobile web devices.
The solutions had to incorporate key features of the existing loan process system without disruption of service and unreasonable costs. As a global bank, changes to the internal infrastructure required innovative solution and integration tests.
Especially in finance, security is key. So the solution they were looking for had to place security as one of its top priorities.
Chatty Apps proved it’s possible to have a global mobile application up and running quickly without sacrificing performance. ‘Chatty Studio’ allowed the Global Bank’s engineers to quickly build the loan process application with no programming through a drag and drop UI and intuitive flow diagram for app logic. They built once, and deployed across multiple devices. This allowed the Global Bank of Panama to spend less time and fewer resources to develop a rich application.
In this case, the Global Bank of Panama was able to quickly and affordably build their loan process application. Today, hundreds of their customers are using the loan process Chatty App to submit loan applications and to receive updates from the bank.
The new solution achieved crucial integration of web-based services to mobilize core-banking services for the bank’s customers. Plus, Chatt Solutions is an extremely secure platform, so the Global Bank did not have to worry about exposing sensitive financial data.
