Energy/Utilities

Whether monitoring tick data, predicting trends, launching new smart-devices, or providing fast on-site field service, leveraging mobile is just table stakes. Sophisticated apps with in-context information are driving new levels of productivity and rapid ROI for Energy & Utility businesses with 24x7 operations.

The use cases are too numerous to list. Here are just a few:

  • Remote asset monitoring, tracking, and management
  • Fleet routing and scheduling
  • Environment, health, and safety monitoring
  • Timely information capture (pictures, voice annotations, etc.)
  • Employee and contract time management
  • Knowledge in context
  • Customer engagement with mobile payments, smart metering, and remote control

With so many consumer and commercial uses, the economics of supporting one-off mobile apps will break the bank: hundreds of apps, no reusable components, inconsistent brand and user experiences, 9 month development cycles, security concerns, and more. What’s needed is an enterprise mobility backend as a service.

“Product innovation and a consistent customer experience are important to us, and harnessing the power of mobile gives us a competitive advantage,” said Ken Carroll, Vice President software platforms, Schneider Electric. “Kinvey makes it simple with no IT overhead. Decoupling the user interface from the backend allows our developers to focus on our products and not worry about building or maintaining the backend platform.”

Empower your lines of business to deliver apps for any B2B, B2C, and B2E use case they need to fuel their business.

Enterprise IT

Streamlining IT operations is an imperative no matter what industry - but you can’t do it at the cost of the customer experience. Expectations have been set by consumer apps and anything less than 5-stars falls short, even for IT customer support apps.

  • Engage your customers where and how they want.
  • Provide the information (e.g. license keys, users/permissions, alerts) and tools they need to do their job in today’s 24x7 world.
  • Build community and loyalty with online forums.
  • Enable your team to rapidly respond to support issues anywhere, anytime.

Mobilizing your IT customer support app makes tons of sense. Learn how VMware IT is leveraging Kinvey to engage their customers with the “My VMware” app.

Financial Services

Mobile is the fastest growing channel for the financial services industry, both consumer and commercial. But with expectations being set by consumer apps and the rapidly evolving standards for security and compliance, it’s hard to be responsive and agile while still maintaining trust.

Media/Entertainment

Enterprises are not just B2B focused. Many target the consumer market as their mainstay. Media and Entertainment companies rely on having engaged, happy users to make their applications successful and profitable.

Typically, entertainment-focused companies do not specialize in maintenance of applications. The product lifecycle in this industry is project-based, and the overhead of maintaining servers for older products is a drain on valuable resources.

Kinvey takes the pain out of the process, providing a managed solution. We do the monitoring so that you can make a beautiful application that users love. Even better, we provide the largest breadth of front end frameworks in the market so you can offer your application across any device you want to target.
