Lack of Solution Reliability and Robustness

When working remotely from the office or in the field, it is crucial for a mobile platform to be fully functional regardless of mobile coverage. Losing coverage during an essential portion of the job process can create costly delays. HTML5 is great for some things but is not the universal answer to wireless apps, especially in industrial field service environments where coverage isn't guaranteed.
