We offer our services in unique, bite-sized engagements called Kickstarts—specifically designed to solve these situations and help get your initiatives off the ground—quickly, easily and without risk.
We offer 6 different Mobile Enterprise Kickstarts, each one focused on helping clients get up to speed at: building an Enterprise Mobile Roadmap, App Scoping & Prototype, Mobile UI/UX Design, Field Services Modernization, IT Strategy for Mobile, Mobile Center of Excellence planning and creation, and Emerging Technologies.
Additionally, we provide soup to nuts app development, testing and support, helping clients with app architecture and development, MCOE management, mobile app testing, and mobile app tier 2 & 3 support.
Large companies often feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of mobile app possibilities and have trouble knowing where to start when it comes to identifying the most significant game-changing features.
Our proven ideation process aligns expectations with business value and drivers, defines the metrics for success, and prioritizes scenarios and app concepts based on projected ROI and technology constraints to separate real business and customer value from minutia and noise.
The Enterprise Mobile Roadmap Kickstart takes you from ideation to action-plan in as little as two weeks. Our strategists will flesh-out and prioritize innovative app ideas based on revenue creation, profitability, customer engagement and brand enhancement. We measure perceived app value against infrastructure, risk, and cost to produce a tactical App Roadmap fine-tuned for business benefit and user adoption.
You’ll take away a realistic and tactical roadmap and timeline that provides business and IT with an action plan to accelerate the realization of your mobile app strategy.
Mobile app prototypes are an invaluable tool for validating a direction before spending big on developing the real-deal app. Our prototypes provide a gorgeous, pixel-perfect experience that follows a few key “happy-path” stories. How we get there is no accident.
Prototyping is particularly valuable in the case of enterprise apps, since these typically require multiple integrations to corporate data sources and platforms. Understanding early-on how the user interactions are going to work, and what data is needed (and when) saves a ton of time and effort when developing/adapting the APIs, web services or point-to-point integrations that will make the app work. In many cases, the development of such integrations can be more costly (both in terms of resources and time) than the development of the app itself.
From back-of-the-napkin to smartphone screen. This Kickstart provides a well-defined plan that combines business-need with a comprehensive implementation approach, identifying potential issues early-on to ensure a successful app strategy. Get your app off to a great start, with a functional prototype that can be instantly deployed on mobile devices. You’ve got a killer app idea. Now it’s time to make it fly.
How old is your organization's app? How many OS updates have occurred since it was first released? Are you confident its performance is still on par with newly-released competitor apps that take advantage of the latest mobile technologies? Our App Refresh Kickstart assesses your app’s performance, architecture and UX, prioritizes top functionality uses cases and enhancements, and brings them all to life in a working prototype. All in just a few weeks.

Creating an Enterprise Mobile Strategy is difficult. Creating a successful Enterprise Mobile Strategy without a Mobile Center of Excellence is almost impossible. A well-structured MCOE is the cornerstone of any enterprise mobile strategy and the only way to finally achieve a holistic approach to mobility.
A Mobile Center of Excellence is more than just the standardization of processes and tools—it’s a centralized body that ensures all mobile initiatives are in-keeping with the business’s larger objectives. Not an “ivory tower” but a hard-working team coordinating efforts to bring about change.
Avoid fragmented and redundant mobile projects, save time and effort, mitigate risk, and achieve greater consistency throughout the enterprise.
A Mobile Center of Excellence (MCOE) helps organizations avoid fragmented mobile projects and rogue apps. With an MCOE in place, your organization can embrace mobile holistically, mitigate risk, ensure regulatory compliance, and meet cross-organizational goals. This Kickstart identifies the charter, scope, reach, and structure of your MCOE. This includes the development of standards and governance along with a framework for championing your mobile solutions.
Creating great business apps means combining stunning user-centric design with the discipline of enterprise considerations. The app must offer focused, intuitive, contextual functionality while following the latest best practices in architecture, data integration and security.
Our team has over two decades of experience with the technologies and tool sets required to successfully integrate mobile applications with your existing corporate data and ecosystem.
This phase of the process includes an objective mobile technology vendor-assessment followed by our recommendations (MDAP, MBaaS, MDM, MAM, etc.). Additionally, we take into account all enterprise architecture considerations, data integration, and security.
Development occurs in iterative app release sprints and includes support processes for development, test and production environments.
Anexinet offers SLA- based app development and deployment.
We follow a continuous-development methodology and handle all aspect of app development, including device and carrier testing.
As with mobile testing, support for mobile applications carries its own unique challenges. But fear not. We’d never leave you hanging following your company’s app-release. We provide robust support, tackling all the possible failure points, nuances, and complexities involved with supporting mobile apps. And naturally, we’re happy to take-on any requests for enhancement.
The fact is, mobile possesses considerably more failure-points than typical enterprise web applications, including connectivity considerations, device and OS-specific issues.
App behavior can be impacted by something as seemingly innocuous as user-settings and preferences or by external forces such as MDM/MAM policy revisions or by the expiration of an app certificate. Further, each app acts as a stand-alone installation and users may install updates inconsistently. To complicate matters, administrators can’t simply remote into user devices to view a problem. And while individual apps may crash, outages—caused by a failure of either integration-services or host-systems—will impact the entire user base.
To face these many and complex challenges, Anexinet offers enhancement tracking and prioritization along with proactive monitoring and validation of app-store comments, plus in-app feedback management and bug triage tiered for increased efficiency.
SLA Based Platform Support:
· Tier 2 and Tier 3 support
· 7x24x365 coverage available
· Remote application upgrade / patch deployment
· MDM / MAM administration
It’s a true Service Desk at the pace of mobile.
