APPCELERATOR LAUNCHES THE ONLY ENTERPRISE SaaS PLATFORM BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP FOR MOBILE
Enterprises Can Create, Deliver and Analyze Apps Across Mobile Devices with the Appcelerator Platform
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – May 21, 2013 – Appcelerator® today launched the Appcelerator Platform, a comprehensive mobile enterprise platform that enables businesses to create, deliver and analyze their entire mobile application portfolio. The Appcelerator Platform empowers enterprises to accelerate their time to market, deliver superior mobile experiences, reduce costs, and manage risk.
One example of a leading company that is driving greater business efficiencies through mobile with the Appcelerator Platform is Safeguard Properties. Launched in mid-2012, Safeguard’s INSPI Mobile app takes property inspections fully mobile. Using INSPI Mobile, property inspectors receive orders, complete surveys and upload photos within the app, in the field, rather than collating notes and pictures at the end of the day in an administrative office using a PC. By leveraging the Appcelerator Platform to build the app for both the Android and iOS platforms, inspections are now submitted more timely and what used to take inspectors up to 10 to 20 minutes with multiple people involved in the process, now takes less than five minutes per inspection.
“Safeguard has a never-ending goal of finding innovative ways to leverage technology to drive improvements in quality, customer service levels and business efficiencies,” states George Mehok, CIO of Safeguard Properties. “Re-engineering critical business processes through a mobile lens is a key differentiator for Safeguard as we strive to better serve our clients. To deliver the highest quality mobile applications, we develop all of Safeguard’s mobile initiatives on the Appcelerator Platform.”
Another leading company that is advancing its mobility strategy with the Appcelerator Platform is Bracket, a Specialty Services provider dedicated to helping pharmaceutical sponsors and contract research organizations achieve greater certainty and accurate outcomes in their clinical trials by seamlessly leveraging science, technology and operational excellence. “Product innovation has always been a competitive differentiator for us,” said Rusty Bealer, executive director of product innovation at Bracket. “The Appcelerator Platform will arm us with the visibility and agility to build, deliver and manage business critical mobile apps that improve communication for investigators and sponsors during clinical trials.”
“Mobile offers businesses massive opportunities to transform customer relationships and gain competitive advantage,” states Jeff Haynie, Appcelerator CEO. “Appcelerator solutions provide a safe, proven choice for enterprises trusted by thousands of companies and over 450,000 mobile developers. The Appcelerator Platform was built from the ground-up for the needs of the new mobile world to enable businesses to create, deliver, and analyze exceptional mobile experiences across their entire mobile portfolio.”
The Appcelerator Platform leverages a large ecosystem of over 450,000 mobile developers, ISVs and SIs, which extend the power of the platform with services, modules and integrations including Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM) and other functionality.
