SME Mobile (TechPortal)

Access through a web browser so your techs have more flexibility in accessing their open orders. Access through a web browser on your Windows or Apple laptop, from your iPhone, Android phone, Windows Phone, Apple Mac, or Blackberry.
Comparison of SME Mobile (TechPortal) versus SME Mobile on Android
The key differences between these two solutions is that the TechPortal version is accessible by any browser system such as any touch Laptop, Smartphone, PC, Tablets, iPhones, etc while the Android version is a native Android application so only works on Android devices, both smartphones and tablets. In addition, the TechPortal tends to be a bit ahead for new features from customer requests.
The advantage of SME Mobile on Android is that it continues to operate in a disconnected state, i.e. with no internet connection, while TechPortal requires internet connection like any web page. Another advantage of the SME Mobile on Android is that it's very focused for handling service orders for technicians so it's easier to train techs on the usage.
