Apple and IBM have added 8 new enterprise apps designed exclusively for iPhone and iPad users. The new apps have been developed as part of the partnership between the two companies and are targeting healthcare and industrial products.

With this 8 new apps, the total of MobileFirst for iOS apps has now reached 22. These new apps join the three IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps that launched during Mobile World Congress and the first set of enterprise apps unveiled at the end of 2014. Here are the description of all the new apps:

  • The Hospital RN app for iPhone frees staff nurses from multiple pagers and phones, and gives them the ability to access any patient’s records from anywhere in the hospital. With iBeacon technology, Hospital RN accurately identifies patients by location so nurses can easily access their records and provide appropriate care.
  • The Hospital Lead app for iPad has all the information charge nurses need right at their fingertips. Push notifications deliver escalated tasks efficiently, so they can be assigned to a staff member with a tap. Prioritized task lists allow issues to be reported, delayed, delegated, or marked complete.
  • The Hospital Tech app for iPhone keeps nurse technicians closely connected to their care teams, so patient tasks are handled quickly and safely — and help is always a swipe away.
  • Home RN for iPhone helps nurses deliver great quality of care outside the hospital. iPhone and iOS make it easy for nurses to add photos, videos, text, and audio notes to the patient’s record. Push notifications to the patient’s care team make sharing progress simple and fast.
  • The Rapid Handover app for iPad makes it easy and intuitive for an industrial-products foreperson to document and share information with incoming shift members. Critical data including production goals, equipment maintenance, and crew lists are available at a glance in the moment of engagement. The photo and dictation capabilities on iPad capture issues like broken equipment and safety hazards.
  • With the Ancillary Sale app for iPhone, flight attendants now have the power to take in‑flight service to a whole new level. Flight attendants can sell seat upgrades, food and beverages, and duty-free merchandise — all while in the air. And passengers can conveniently complete the transaction with Apple Pay or the swipe of a credit card via in-flight point-of-sale systems.
  • With the Order Commit app on iPad, planning for the perfect product assortment just got easier. Merchants can access important metrics on financial targets and sell-through while in the office or on market trips.
  • Risk Inspect makes insurance inspections more accurate and reduces the need for costly repeat inspections. With the camera on iPad, inspectors can capture photo and video of any site while on the job.
