@NimanthaD, I think the influx of apps is a double-edged sword. On the one hand there are lots of choices, and on the other hand there is the potential for a lot of confusion.  Also, there will be a bunch of folks who invest in products and services that disappear when the market shakeout happens. Being an early adopter has benefits but it's a big gamble too.

@Hailey: Don't you think it's a good opportunity to have so many apps in the market ? It provides the comparing facility and the users have the bargaining right in a much more higher manner.

Distribution and warehouse folks have been using handheld mobile computers (along with RFID tags, bar-codes and the like) for a long time with great success. What do you think the lessons can be learned for more general supply chain applications?

Supply chain apps aimed at the large enterprise are getting more and more plentiful. The big challenge is that it is still early days so knowing which apps to use remains difficult.

Yes these days there are so many apps that can be freely download on Andriod. Its a boon for supply chain business as it always is based on networking.
