Recent years have seen a remarkable integration of leading-edge technologies, such as cloud-computing and mobile agent technology, with the traditional information system. This integration improves the employee performance and facilitates authorized access to information and data at anytime and anywhere through familiar environments such as Android-enabled mobile devices, for example giving orders in real time to employees equipped with smart mobile terminals can raise working efficiency. This paper presents a new distributed, autonomous and intelligent architecture based on multi-agent systems (MAS) allowing authorized ubiquitous access to company information system and synchronizing data between mobile device (MD) and Information System (IS), in real time and without human intervention. The proposed architecture was validated by the implementation of an intelligent data synchronization platform able to manage efficiently the work orders (WO) of a company of management and distribution of water and electricity. The platform ensures the WO exchange in real time between the IS of the company IS and MD of field operators. This feature draws upon on Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) mechanism that allows for more efficient power management leading to increased battery life. This platform can also display a map that can assist field operators in finding the shortest route to the location that will be addressed through the Google Maps APIs. The user and WO position are determined using android location based services.
