Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for enhancing connectivity are discussed. An illustrative aspect of the invention includes a method for enhancing connectivity. The method includes scheduling an order to be performed by a worker into a schedule, accessing the schedule by a mobile device via a server on the Internet, and substituting the schedule by a proxy to allow an application on the mobile device to interact with the proxy when the mobile device is temporarily disconnected from the schedule.
