opening in London and several European customer wins including MoneYou,

Belgium. In conjunction with Mobile
World Congress, Kony also unveiled enhancements to its Mobile CRM
product offering, citing the importance of empowering sales teams with
fast, secure access to customer information on any mobile device,
With today’s on-the-go workforce increasingly demanding anytime access
to their enterprise systems, Kony Mobile CRM allows organizations to put
account, lead, opportunity and customer information right into their
sales teams’ hands. As these organizations grapple with employee
requests to use a variety of devices, Mobile CRM enables a complete BYOD
strategy across HTML5, mobile web, hybrids, wrappers and native apps.
Taking the guess work out of app development, Kony’s Mobile CRM delivers
a stunning user experience with robust reporting, charting and data
visualization, and is fully configurable and extensible with universal
connectivity to leading CRM systems including SAP and Oracle.
“Sales teams are always on the go, and the ability to access customer
information quickly and easily is a critical aspect of the job,” said
Adam Enterkin, VP of Sales, EMEA, Kony. “With Kony Mobile CRM, we aim to
provide best of breed functionality that meets every organization’s
distinct needs, from the sales teams in the field to sales managers and
IT admins. Leveraging the KonyOne Platform for fast mobile app rollout
and scalability across multiple teams, on-the-go CRM management is now a
reality for every enterprise.”
In addition, as part of its Business-to-Consumer practice, Kony has also
announced MoneYou as a customer. An online savings bank known for
providing customers with simple, efficient ways to maximize their
savings accounts, MoneYou has tapped Kony to help the company adapt to
rapid advancements in mobile and growing customer demand for enhanced
app features and functionality. In an effort to make banking more
personal, MoneYou’s updated savings app will launch early in 2013,
allowing users to take control of their finances by specifying specific
savings goals, along with the ability to upload an image of their chosen
savings target (i.e. a car or vacation). Working closely with Kony and
Mirabeau, a Netherlands based web agency, MoneYou aims to make savings
via mobile an integral part of customers’ everyday lives, offering a
consistent user experience regardless of device or channel. In addition
to its work with Kony, MoneYou turned to Mirabeau for the design and
development of its website and mobile apps to seamlessly integrate
mobile as a part of its overall online strategy.
“As an online bank, getting closer to our customers is our number one
priority, regardless of what mobile device they use,” said Erik Idzenga,
Online Channel Manager, MoneYou. “Through Kony’s multi-channel
advantage, we will be able to continually improve the user experience of
our apps, on any device, in order to exceed customer expectations.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
