IBM i (AS/400) mobile applications
Is that normal that in 2023 your IBM i programs will only be available online?
PHL Mobile makes connections a thing of the past!
Access business applications at any time and from any terminal (PC, tablet, smartphone).
Whether in stand-alone or connected mode, PHL Mobile creates secure applications: identified users, predefined queries, data compression, while integrating the terminal’s native functions (photo, signature, geolocation, PDF display).
To take full advantage of all the functions offered by the terminals (Apple, Android or Windows), the programs are generated in HTML.

PHL Portail: the complete runtime environment supplied with all PHL products. It's a high-performance graphics solution that incorporates all the advances of the web and modern workstations.
The PHL Portal lets you set up programs, create users or groups of users, and assign them the necessary rights according to their responsibilities. It is secured by profile or by user group.
Just like a Windows application, the PHL Soft toolbar can be customized to include the most frequently used applications and utilities. All PHL Soft programs run in the PHL portal.
Frequently asked questions
Does this apply to all types of AS/400?
PHL Soft solutions run on IBMi machines equipped with at least release V7R1 (the oldest release still supported by IBM).
Which web browsers are compatible with PHL Soft?
For developers, iE 11 is required.
On the user side, Chrome, Firefox and Edge can be used (with a few security-related restrictions).
How are PHL Soft solutions installed?
Each customer receives the complete PHL Soft solution kit. Depending on the solutions purchased (PHL Web, PHL XML, PHL Query, PHL Print or PHL Mobile), activation keys are issued to start working.
Why choose PHL Soft solutions rather than rewriting applications?
Rewriting a business application means running the risk of losing all the company's business knowledge, as these applications are generally quite old and often have little or no documentation.
How long will it take to get the new programs into production?
New programs can be implemented very quickly if you work in phases. In the first phase, the application is taken over as is thanks to a rapid one-shot conversion, identical to the 5250. In a second phase, it can be improved over time.
How much does a new program with PHL Soft cost?
The cost of a program generated by a PHL Soft solution is de facto much lower than when applications are redeveloped (it is generally considered that it takes as much time to redevelop an application as to write the initial program).
PHL Soft solutions dispense with the analysis of the existing system as a reengineering phase (unlike program rewriting): the process is therefore far less time-consuming and therefore far less costly than new development.
How are users of the generated programs managed?
The PHL Portal module enables developers and administrators to create users and manage their rights.
