Mobilizing consumer and employee apps in the enterprise can be a lot more complicated and time-consuming than originally envisioned. It takes time to develop a business case, plan a technical solution and implement it. Worse, IT will likely discover that the applications to be mobilized have no documented APIs, so the applications have to be rewritten. As a result, mobile-enabling enterprise Web applications often takes two or three years and costs millions of dollars, resulting in critical loss in customer expectations and employee efficiency. Kapow Software helps customers get to market faster and cheaper than they ever thought possible, without the need to change a single line of code in their applications. Often, projects are completed in a matter of weeks.
“Kapow Software’s approach is truly revolutionary,” said Stefan Andreasen, CTO of Kapow Software. “There’s no need to rewrite these applications and no dependency on external application owners to provide APIs. Customers can now wrap their applications in Kapow to rapidly enable them for delivery to iPhones, iPads, Androids and other mobile devices without rewriting code.”
Kapow pioneered browser-based data integration for rapid mobile-enablement of any application to any device, which radically improves the ROI of projects involving enterprise, Web and cloud applications. The patented Kapow Extraction Browser is purpose-built to automatically and precisely extract, transform, integrate and deliver data from virtually any source on the Web, in the cloud, or across the enterprise, faster, cheaper and more accurately than any other method—all without requiring existing APIs.
“Kapow Katalyst sets new industry standards for time-to-market on complex data integration, application and mobile-enablement projects,” said Andreasen. “Our success with companies like Audi and Commerzbank makes it clear that our innovative mobile-enablement solution resonates with IT executives looking for efficient ways to meet customer’s impatient demands to rapidly extend their business to mobile.”
Rather than spending months or years trying to provide mobile access to legacy B2C and B2E applications, Audi was able to mobile-enable four line-of-business applications in one week, one of which was an assembly-line application. Before the application was mobilized, the assembly-line manager had to monitor cars in production on a computer in his office, which took him away from the assembly line. With Kapow, Audi was able to mobile-enable the application in less than eight hours, enabling the employee to access the application from his smartphone without leaving the assembly line.
