Going beyond an app’s original features, SmartUX Studio lets users add commonly used mobile tools such as alerts and notifications, camera functionality, maps, fingerprint security, and near-field communications capabilities. It also offers what it calls “smart roaming,” or the ability for app users to access the same session of a mobile app from different devices.
Using SmartUX, any enterprise app can be transformed for mobile in 10 days or less, the company says. Multiple existing apps can also be combined into one.
PowWow’s SmartUX is compatible with any iOS, Android or HTML5-compatible device. It is deployed in the data center or cloud, while the resulting apps can be deployed via a mobile device management product or app store, with automatic updating. Now in beta, the platform will be available next month.
Also on Wednesday, PowWow announced $4.25 million in funding and several new executive hires, including former BMC Software CTO Kia Behnia as CEO.
