Until now, a solution hasn’t existed that moves applications adapted for mobile in a way that’s true to the mobile experience. Users with tablets and laptops still find themselves tethered to their desktops. IT can create native applications over several months or years, but this is costly, time-consuming and typically only moves one to two apps to mobile each year. PowWow now puts more control and power in the hands of IT and users at a fraction of the cost, and faster than any other option.

“Today companies are stymied by the inability to quickly take rich desktop application experiences and optimize them for mobile,” said Andrew Cohen, Founder and CEO of PowWow. “When just a few native applications are being ported to mobile each year, users don’t realize the true benefits of mobile. As a matter of fact many companies report that their employees develop ‘mobile apathy’ because what they’re able to do with their mobile devices doesn’t live up to their expectations. With PowWow, IT and expert users can move thousands of their most important applications to mobile—and it isn’t just a cut and paste—these applications are now customized for tablets and laptops and allow people to jointly collaborate on any document. We’re empowering mobile to finally deliver on everyone’s high expectations.”

PowWow runs Windows and Web applications on any mobile device in minutes, optimizing them with a unique adaptive user interface technology. The PowWow Architecture, which is based on a patent-pending software layer, allows each application to have custom gestures, keyboard and UI to be configured by device with no coding. Collaboration has also been built into the PowWow protocol. PowWow makes any single user application multi-user. For the first time mobile users--when given control by a document’s owner--can jointly edit and co-author in real time. This fulfills a key need to fully collaborate as people leave their desks with their mobile device of choice. PowWow can optimize thousands of applications in hours while maintaining the control and security IT needs to protect users and assets. It can be deployed in on-premise, via the cloud and in hybrid environments and seamlessly integrates within any back-end hardware and software platform.

Several large and small companies are using PowWow, including a top five bank, a top three pharmaceutical company, a Fortune one hundred insurance company, and a Fortune 10 conglomerate. PowWow is productively used across many enterprises every day.

The company also announced that it has secured a $1.1 million seed round from industry heavyweights Dave Schwab, managing director of Sierra Ventures; Mark Angel, Nuance and Kana Software; Kumar Mallavali, founder of Brocade; and Prabhu Goel, founder Gateway Design Automation (Cadence).

“Deploying windows apps to the tablet has been a poor imitation of the desktop experience,” said Prabhu Goel, Managing Director, Green Span Ventures. “All that changes with PowWow. PowWow transforms enterprise apps into mobile apps that take advantage of everything everyone wants from mobile—the easy to use gestures, access to important data, and the ability to do anything you could do at your desk, anywhere in the world. Companies are seeing PowWow as a necessary supplement to their VDI, MEAPS and DaaS solutions. With PowWow, mobile devices will finally have the impact on enterprise productivity that they have already had on consumption.”

PowWow is available immediately and is priced at $25/month per user. A free trial is available for use with a company’s own applications for select enterprises.
