Who We Are
Our vision is to see apps in the hands of every mobile worker, and our mission is to continue leading the market in rugged modernization. With hundreds on staff across the country, we are devoted to delivering mission-critical enterprise mobile line-of-business solutions that drive maximum return-on-investment.
With the iFactr platform, we’ve deployed some of the most sophisticated mobile enterprise applications in the world driving billions of dollars in revenue for our customers, powering some of the largest enterprise mobile deployments in production today.
Many of our customers are leaders in their respective industries, including 3M, Accenture, Air Products, Allianz, Ameriprise, Best Buy, Boston Scientific, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cardinal Health, CHS, Ecolab, Fastenal, FedEx, General Mills, Hallmark, Honeywell, Kohl’s, Motorola, Medtronic, Microsoft, Quest Diagnostics, St. Jude Medical, Target, Thomson Reuters, UnitedHealth Group, and Wells Fargo.
Our leadership team has been in the enterprise mobile software for over 15 years since Windows CE 1.0 in the late 90s. As we worked with customers helping them take advantage of the mobile revolution, their investments in mobile solutions continued to add up, with tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars invested. There wasn’t any problem with that when the industry was standardized on Windows, but when the wave of consumerization swept through the enterprise, catalyzed by the iPhone and the iPad, many organizations found themselves forced to support new platforms from Apple and Google.
And when Microsoft’s own response to consumerization left the rugged handheld market without a roadmap, we created iFactr to solve the problems that our customers faced. We offer a migration path for legacy applications that leverage existing IT investments, future-proofing their solutions, and dramatically reducing the long-term total cost of ownership of their mobile solutions, no matter what the future holds as the dramatic transformation of the rugged handheld market continues to unfold.
Written by our CTO, Nathan Clevenger, this book outlines the head-on collision of consumerization with traditional enterprise mobility, and provides a guide for how business and IT can collaborate to develop a mobile strategy to properly take advantage of this transformative technology.
“Nathan Clevenger gets it. Read this book, or risk getting left behind.”
“This book is a valuable read for any enterprise CIO and IT leader.”
