Grafton Group have been short-listed for the Innovation in Mobile category of the 9th Real IT Awards
Grafton Group have been short-listed for the Innovation in Mobile category of the 9th Real IT Awards to be held in London on the 18th June. The nomination is for Grafton’s new mobile application “Plumb Centre” which is available for iPhone and Android phones. This new application allows Grafton’s customers to remotely access plumbing and heating product information in any of their stores throughout Ireland. Customers can search for specific products or spare parts and locate the stores nearest to their location. Using InterSystems Caché database technology, Grapevine developed a suite of secure interfaces that search a central Caché database for the information required and return the information in JSONP format directly to the mobile application, all over a secure SSL connection between the phone and database server.
