Now that implementation of the Mifos web application front-end is underway, I’ve been concentrating on Mifos mobile. We want to make the mobile interface very similar, but optimized for the mobile screen sizes (Android phone shown here.) It’s also important to consider the use cases for mobile – most likely a phone or tablet would be used by a loan officer in the field, therefore the back office tasks such as accounting, administration, and reporting are much less important on the mobile platform.
To start, I am concentrating on the Loan Officer’s tasks in the field which would be:
- attending meetings (To-Do List)
- entering collections
- updating or creating new clients and/or loans.
