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, anywhere, anytime.

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.

“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.”

The KonyOne Platform leverages Kony's proven technology for designing, developing, deploying and managing mobile applications that run on more than 10,000 mobile devices and seven operating systems. In addition, Kony future-proofs mobile investments by offering a Service Level Agreement (SLA) to support new versions of an existing platform SDK within 30 days of release. Further, Kony’s platform is backward compatible, ensuring that all applications are fully functional and take advantage of new OS features, regardless of whether customers upgrade their devices.
