Siemens Announcement

 

Mercury Digital are delighted to announce that we have become the official mobile partner for Siemens offering consulting and development services to further focus their mobile enabled and smartphone products.

Mercury Digitals’ specific expertise in HTML5 and Native app consuting, development and design have been called upon to initially work on the Siemens SPC Anywhere security system.

Users of intruder detection installations based on the versatile Security Products from Siemens SPC product range can now monitor and control their systems from almost anywhere, using a new free iOS application (app) available on the App Store.

With SPCanywhere, users can monitor multiple SPC installations via an attractive and intuitive graphical user interface. SPCanywhere provides an overview of the system area status, as well as the status of all the zones and door controls. For each installation, users can select a map view, which provides an instant overview with icons that clearly show positioning of the detectors and verification cameras. Tapping on an icon allows the user to control doors, areas and zones, or to display real time images live on the iPhone or iPad.

Mercury are working closely with Siemens Swiss and Irish offices to bring the existing SPC technology to Android and Windows mobile smartphones and tablets.

This is a huge step for Mercury and to get the validation from such a large global client that HTML5 development and deployment are bankable for the future is the best endorsement of our business.

Tim Duggan – CEO of Mercury is delighted with this new deal and excited for the future for his clients
“We have been working in mobile native development and design since 2008 and even in those early days we saw that native coding for smartphone was a one trick pony, kind of like a wrist watch – its a limited use utility in a way, there is no flexibility or scalability in a native source code base.

So when we started working with HTML5 and cross deployment frameworks like phonegap, Titanium and others, we started to see a more streamlined way of working with 80% of our clients applications.
We didnt see there been a point in releasing a new ‘phonegap’ platform but we did see the value in becoming expert consultants and developers in this rapidly changing area, and to wait and see how the market took and still is taking to HTML5 while departing from native builds. While we we still also work on native development, we are finding more and more of our clients are waking up to the fact that cross platform is the way to go. There are obvious advantages to using native development in gaming and very high graphic and render load applications, HTML5 is constantly catching up with these.
We have recently engaged with new enterprise clients who have very solid IT teams, but until now, they have been locked into different technologies for delivering their solutionsWith Adobes purchase of Phone Gap and the ongoing wind-down of Flash, its clear that Adobe are investing in a HTML5 future, in not only mobile but also across their entire web product range.

The work we recently did on an interactive kids book in developing a platform, was really pushing the boundries of what we could do with HTML5 and the broswer hardware acceleration. I think this was something that really impressed Siemens in demonstrating what we can do. We had been talking with the head of Google Android in the UK and the Head of Chrome and they were very impressed with how much we had pushed the performance. So much so that we were in open water with regards to how much the Google developer teams could advise on what more could be done.
Sean, our top HTML5 dev really added IP and value to steamline the performance of the application and this is really our sweet spot as a company in pushing performance and code to offer the best experience possible.”

The new contract with Siemens means a stronger future for Mercury Digital, but by no means does it mean that we are limited in new work bandwidth. If anything, we are looking forward to taking on new SME and enterprise level clients and we always enjoy working with Startups that have a technical build and consulting requirement.
