Apperian to Manage Deployment of Forte Mobile Application for Clients Worldwide

LOS ANGELES – January 14, 2014 – Apperian®, Inc., the leading platform for securing and managing enterprise mobile apps, today announced that Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), a single source of leadership and talent consulting services, has selected Apperian to deploy Forte, its mobile app for career development, using ApperianONE™.  Based on Apperian’s award-winning mobile app management platform, ApperianONE is a first-of-its-kind program that provides a fast and free way for customers, such as Korn Ferry, to get an app securely into the hands of end-users with a consumer-like mobile experience that drives adoption. This particular deployment will assist Korn Ferry with internal testing as well as controlled external pre-customer trials of its Forte app. Unlike traditional device-centric methods, which require intrusive and cumbersome technology that hampers user adoption rates, Apperian’s technology provides a seamless approach to security and app management that drives the highest possible levels of app adoption and does not require use of an SDK or code modifications.  This leads to fast, secure and successful deployments. “Leveraging the ApperianONE platform to manage the deployment and management of our Forte app is allowing us to focus on our core app functionality and to get it into the hands of our internal and external testers as quickly as possible,” said Andy Simmons, Senior Director of Product Development, Korn Ferry.  “When considering how to drive the adoption of a mobile app, ease of use is crucial. Korn Ferry has many mobile applications in our portfolio and a program like this allows us to obtain a firm grasp on what mobility management for testing should be, and how it can add value to our customers and employees.” As a part of the ApperianONE program, any commercial company can use Apperian’s cloud-based platform at no cost, to distribute and manage from a private and branded app store, one custom-built mobile app as well as an unlimited set of company-recommended public apps.  This allows enterprises, such as Korn Ferry, to experience a quick and easy way to deploy critical mobile apps to the users who need them most. “When we first announced ApperianONE, our mission was to provide a fast and risk-free way for enterprises to experience a new and effective approach to getting enterprise apps into the hands of users who need them,” said Mark Lorion, Chief Marketing Officer, Apperian. “We’re excited to be working with such a prestigious firm like Korn Ferry and empowering them to reap real business benefits of mobility in the workplace.” ApperianONE customers that wish to deploy more than one custom app or would like to leverage Apperian’s full set of premium features may seamlessly upgrade to the Apperian Enterprise edition.
