Intervate, a T-Systems business unit in South Africa and the country’s foremost provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions, has reinforced its position in the market as a mobile app developer by obtaining Gold Microsoft Applications Development Competency, and through the company’s latest community and business apps, designed to improve citizen service delivery and boost businesses’ efficiencies.
The company has successfully created and completed a number of community and business apps for a diverse range of industries and clients. Some of these apps include: the Fix My City app, Meter Reading app, Citizen Scientist app, and the Telkom Knockout app.
These apps are testament to the level of skills and expertise required to achieve Gold Microsoft Application Development Competency status. The competency recognises Intervate as a trusted expert in application development for commercial, business and custom-developed solutions.
“With the rapid growth in demand for mobile apps companies often rush into application development for the sake of getting to market quickly. This can result in poor applications and can prove costly in the long run,” said T-Systems’ Intervate Managing Director, Lionel Moyal.
“At Intervate we recognise the importance of thorough planning in the application development process. We want to build applications that truly improve people’s lives and add real value to businesses, and that remain relevant and functional for as long as possible, reducing the need for and cost of later updates.”
Mobile applications offer excellent opportunities for cost savings and increased business efficiency, in both the private and public sectors. They also make managing the ever-increasing quantities of data individuals and businesses have to contend with, easier.
“Our collaborative mobile applications merge social features and Enterprise Information Management. This allows for improved service delivery and greater business efficiency. Having a robust, comprehensive mobile strategy in place is key to any large company’s success. At Intervate, we have the skills and people necessary for achieving that success,” concluded Moyal.
