Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) January 17, 2015
ViziApps®, Inc., the industry’s leading platform for visual creation of business mobile apps, today launched ViziApps Instant Publisher(TM), a breakthrough for enterprises and smaller organizations that need to get custom mobile apps quickly into the hands of end-users. The ViziApps online development platform for mobile apps has, for several years, been one of the fastest ways to create custom mobile apps without the expert coding skills required to build native and hybrid mobile apps. Now the entire lifecycle of a custom mobile app, from concept through design, build, test, publishing, distribution, and updates, can be done quickly by citizen developers as well as software professionals.
ViziApps Instant Publisher Solves Key Business Needs
Publishing a mobile app through public app stores can often be an uncomfortable fit, especially for B2B and B2E mobile apps. It can be challenging and costly, and increase project risk and schedule delays. ViziApps Instant Publisher greatly simplifies the publishing process, and lowers the cost and risk, for these key needs:
● The intended app user population is limited or restricted
● The app is only to be used by company insiders and partners
● Distribution must be immediate, even to support an emergency
● The app will have a very short lifetime, such as support for a conference
● The app contains sensitive intellectual property that shouldn’t be broadly exposed
● The developer is conducting a beta test or pilot program
Winter Promotion – First App Free
Now through March 31, publish a mobile app using ViziApps Instant Publisher™, and that app will be free for life. Your app can be published for both Apple iOS and Google Android devices. See our description of ViziApps Instant Publisher for details (http://www.viziapps.com/viziapps-instant-publisher).
Easy Process for App Creators and App Users
For the mobile app designer, ViziApps Instant Publisher is easy to use; just specify an app name, version number, and launch icon, then click the “Publish” button. The app designer will then be presented with a short URL and an “App Card” containing the short URL and a QR code. These can be distributed to end users in any way, such as email, tweet, or blog post, or even in hard copy form on a poster, business card, or kiosk display. The end-user will be brought to an App Installation Page with easy two-step instructions for installing the app with its custom-branded app icon on their iOS or Android device home screen.

“There is no one size fits all with regards how a company should publish its mobile applications. The respective app stores of the major mobile OS providers are often not appropriate for privacy reasons, and a MAM solution may, for some use cases, be over-the-top and for smaller organizations in particular may be unnecessarily complex.” said Chris Marsh, principal analyst, Enterprise Mobile App Strategies, 451 Research. “ViziApps’ Instant Publisher looks to address the gap in between these other solutions giving developers, particularly citizen developers, or app owners a way to quickly and cheaply distribute internal apps which maybe have a shorter lifespan for which the other solutions may be less cost effective.”
Addressing the Enterprise Mobility Backlog
One of the most acute problems in IT today is the need to transform existing software applications and business processes to take strategic advantage of a mobile workforce. The extreme speed that mobility is transforming enterprises and smaller organizations, combined with the highly specialized skills required to build well-integrated business apps for mobile devices, has created a backlog of demand from nearly all departments. George Adams, ViziApps’ CEO, said “We had created the fastest way to build business mobile apps with backend data, but publishing remained a stubborn bottleneck. Now with ViziApps Instant Publisher, our customers can go from concept to delivered app literally in hours, and create and deliver live updates to their app users in minutes.”
A Tool for Citizen Developers
Creating a custom mobile app with ViziApps is a visual design process of laying out fields, such as buttons, text labels, and tables, onto a series of pages. The app designer then arranges the app’s workflow through events such as a button tap or table selection. Mobile device features are easily incorporated as fields or events, including GPS, camera, audio recording, and sending email or text messages. ViziApps also extends these mobile features to include QR and barcode scanning, signature capture, popup web pages, and more. App testing is immediate, using an App Preview mode right in the browser, as well as the free ViziApps test app available from Google Play and the Apple App Store. Now, apps can also be published in minutes with ViziApps Instant Publisher.
Easily Connect Backend Data Sources - without Coding
An app designer can connect fields to live data sources as needed, using a no-coding interface that provides select, insert, update, and delete operations. ViziApps fully integrates Google Drive Spreadsheets, Salesforce.com, Intuit QuickBase, Intuit QuickBooks, and nearly any SQL/ODBC-compliant database. Multiple data sources can be used within the same app. ViziApps is unique in providing fully transparent and automatic data synchronization and offline operation, currently available for QuickBase and soon to be available for other data sources.
Faster App Development for Software Professionals
ViziApps is an industry-leading online service for businesses to visually create mobile apps that can use backend data and device native resources. If you can build PowerPoint slides and Excel Spreadsheets, you can use ViziApps to put your company’s data and cloud-based data in the hands of your mobile employees, partners, and customers. The whole process can take just days instead of months to create and publish robust custom mobile apps. For more information, visit: http://www.viziapps.com
