  • Quickmobile raises $2.3 Million from Angel Investors for the Development of event Applications

    August 18th, 2011 2 comments

    QuickMobile, the US company which specializes in developing mobile solution in order to provide the necessary applications for meetings and events industries, has recently announced the end of a first round of funding which has brought the company a total of $2.3 million. The money has been obtained from different angel investors, both as equity and as debt.

    Over the years, QuickMobile has become known on the market due to the mobile solutions the company has developed for major tech and film events such as Dreamforce 2010, Tribeca Film Festival or Sundance Film Festival.

    The company focuses on providing elaborated applications based on the needs of the client. Some of the features which can be implemented by QuickMobile in its mobile applications and sites refer to media tools, social media tools, real-time content updating, rich media, personal scheduling and others, so that to suit the desires of each of its particular clients. The company believes that each application has to have an individual touch which will make it more appealing and which will generate the satisfaction of the clients.

    Up to this moment, QuickMobile has developed Android, BlackBerry and iPhone applications for its clients including support for collaboration app Salesforce Chatter. For Sundance, they have also created an iPhone application. When it comes to Tribecam they have created both an iPhone application and a HTML5 mobile website which have all had a complete festival guide and extra content.

    Patrick Payne, the CEO of QuickMobile, stated the following: “As evidenced by our growth, both conference organizers and meeting attendees are looking for more efficient tools and environmentally friendly solutions to their static event program guides. Our apps are much more than simple replacements for the paperbound agenda, providing an unprecedented level of interactivity, connectivity and engagement while also dramatically reducing paper and printing.”

    The company intends to provide a suitable solution for each of those companies which organize events and conferences because this market is gigantic and only a personal and custom made application can make you stand up from the crowd. The company announces that 205 million people attend 1.8 million meetings every year only in the US. They have also added that it is only about 10% of the companies which organize these events that offer an interactive, attracting mobile app. Based on these figures, Payne expects that the pace of growth of his company will be that of 500 percent.

    Here are the names of some companies for which QuickMobile has designed individualised mobile applications: Accenture, Cisco, Dell, Disney, World Economic Forum, Global Business Travel Association, Google, Hilton Worldwide, Intel, Microsoft, PhocusWright and SAP.

    The company stated that this amount of money is going to be used in order to sustain the development of new products and in order to allow the company to expand at an international level.

  • Nice weblog here! Also your site lots up fast! What web host are you the usage of? Can I am getting your affiliate link to your host? I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  • You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something that I think I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look forward for your subsequent submit, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!
