Putting User at the Center, Capriza’s Approach Helps Businesses Finally Realize Investments in Tablets

By putting the user at the center, we’re making these monolithic business applications personalized, contextual, and mobile-enabled.

Capriza, a disruptive SaaS-based enterprise mobility platform vendor, announced that it has broadened its mobile platform capabilities to support tablet devices. Since 2012 and through 2017, tablets within the enterprise will grow by approximately 50% year-over-year, according to Research and Markets’ enterprise tablet forecast report. Extending its proven speed and simplicity, Capriza’s release helps companies finally extract value beyond simple email, calendar and web surfing by giving employees access to business applications, which have traditionally been accessible only on PCs.

Capriza removes the traditional barriers of going mobile. The traditional approach requires retooling existing infrastructure and recoding business applications, straining already limited development resources. Capriza is the first and only platform that can take business applications in their current state and mobilize them — with no APIs, no coding, and no integration. With an average of 700+ software applications in most enterprises, the required timeline and cost make it almost impossible to mobilize. A single enterprise app takes an average of 6-9 months to mobilize with an average cost of $250K. Using Capriza, a company can create dozens of Zapps in the same time it takes to develop a single mobile app but at a fraction of the cost.

With Capriza, forward-thinking organizations and IT departments can achieve quick wins with mobile apps by targeting critical, widely-used employee workflows. Capriza’s release provides a completely different approach to building enterprise software, which designs software by putting the user at the center rather than the app.

“Capriza approaches the problem in a fundamentally different way by working backwards from the user instead of forward from the app. By putting the user at the center, we’re making these monolithic business applications personalized, contextual, and mobile-enabled,” said Mayank Mehta, Capriza’s Vice President of Product. “Without question, Capriza is the first to enable enterprises to mobilize their business applications rapidly without APIs, coding or upgrades. Many others might make the same claim, but we’re the only company that can truly deliver on it -- on any device.”

Key features of Capriza’s new extended tablet offering include:

  • Unmatched Simplicity: By focusing on the workflow of the user and what they need to do their job, Zapps can be handcrafted rapidly, using one environment to create modern user experiences that run responsively across both smartphones and tablets. Simplified management reduces maintenance to just one Zapp that runs fluidly across all platforms and devices.
  • Unparalleled Speed: Capriza enables the creation of personalized apps on any platform and any device, delivering native-like experiences, within just 1 week.
  • Powerful Drag & Drop UI/UX Editor: Bypass the need for in-house CSS experts using the simple yet powerful layout engine. The drag-and-drop editor drives responsive design, rendering a pixel perfect UX, with zero coding, zero APIs, and zero integration needed.
  • Brand New Capriza App: The complete solution provides a way for customers to deploy these Zapps with the Capriza App or via an existing MDM solution. The new app can be customized with icons and colors, enabling full control of one’s brand.

According to Gartner, enterprise apps available for desktop and mobile usage will jump to 90% by 2017. However, today mobile apps account for about 8% in the enterprise, largely because they aren’t personalized to support how users really work.

Stated Yuval Scarlat, Capriza’s co-founder and CEO, “Integral to our philosophy is putting the user at the center – not the app. Increasingly, today’s workers want mobile business apps that simplify their mobile experience, deliver contextual information, and improve how they work. We’re thrilled that Capriza is the first to introduce a new face to enterprise mobile apps. With our approach, we’ve improved the cost equation around mobility by 80 percent and collapsed the development timeline to mere days.”
