BMC Makes Life Easier for Field Personnel with Apperian’s Mobile Application Management Platform
Apperian to Help BMC Transform Both Sales and Operations Business Processes through Complete iOS App Management
BOSTON, April 24, 2012 – Apperian (www.apperian.com) today announced that BMC, one of the nation’s leading providers of building materials and construction services, has chosen its Enterprise App Services Environment (EASE®) as its iOS app management platform to deploy and manage mobile applications for its nationwide network of sales and operations personnel. BMC is developing and rolling out a suite of enterprise mobile apps, “BMC 2 Go,” that will transform sales and operations business processes –making employees more mobile, productive and effective through high-value Apple iPhone and iPad applications. “BMC 2 Go will empower our people in the field,” said Malini Balakrishnan, BMC Chief Information Officer and Vice President, process optimization. “As employees visit job sites, they will be able to access data and documents -- on demand -- that live behind our firewall. This will allow them to share valuable, proprietary content like videos and PDFs of different styles and brands of building products, which will enable customers to make important buying decisions in real-time. BMC 2 Go is easy-to-use and will provide builders and their buyers with access to content that will allow them to visualize the finished project even as it’s under construction. Our groundbreaking interactive tool is an industry first, and further distinguishes BMC’s products and services on the competitive landscape by making the buying process that much more seamless for our customers.” After deciding to base BMC’s mobile apps on the Apple iOS platform, Ms. Balakrishnan and her team conducted a thorough review of iOS app management vendors before selecting Apperian. “In EASE, Apperian has a best-in-class platform,” she said. “Apperian’s background in the iOS space uniquely enables them to advise us as we create apps in that environment, and their professional services team works seamlessly with us to develop and test our mobile apps. We have a true partnership with Apperian.” The EASE platform is used by businesses of all sizes, including Fortune Global 500 firms in the pharmaceutical, retail and consumer goods industries, to deploy and manage the full lifecycle of mobile applications. With the rise of BYOD policies in companies, Apperian business customers are empowering workers and improving employee satisfaction by allowing them to use their own mobile devices, without fear of their private data being seen or deleted by the employer.
