One of Richmond's Fastest Growing and Leading Mobile App Development Firm Continues Growth as Enterprise App Development Demand Heats up in 2016

“Over the years we’ve learned that Enterprise level IT and software solutions just aren’t pleasant for anyone to use the way Instagram, Uber or any consumer-level app is.” Says Alex Otañez, COO. "So we decided to change that.”

Shockoe Enterprise Mobile Solutions, LLC., a leading mobile app development, mobile strategy, and mobile design announced today that three new UI/UX designers joined the company. Shockoe Enterprise Mobile Solutions is expanding its design team in response to the rapid demand of Enterprise App Development in 2016.

‘What are you feeling right now?’ is a question one might expect from a marriage counselor or therapist. Not necessarily from a technology company.

But that is exactly the type of question Sam Carbonell, Nikki Ziegler, and Jamie Young - the new Experience Design team at, a Richmond-based mobile app development company - are asking. Young says, “Our marriage to our mobile devices - tablets, smartphones, Internet of Things devices - is a lot like any marriage. When things are good, life couldn’t be better. When they're not, tears and curses aren't uncommon.”

Minimizing that toll is where Shockoe’s new design team goes to work.

“Over the years we’ve learned that Enterprise level IT and software solutions just aren’t pleasant for anyone to use the way Instagram, Uber or any consumer-level app is,” says Alex Otañez, COO. “And when someone is spending half of their workday using that software, it translates into a lot of unhappy employees. So we decided to change that.”

The addition of an Experience Design team is a natural next step for Shockoe, who has been quietly building a world class client list - Capital One, Philips, GE, Winn Dixie, T-Mobile, for example - out of their office in Richmond, VA's historic Shockoe Bottom.

The team is supported by Andrew LeVasseur, also head of VCU Brandcenter’s Experience Design track. “Shockoe has a team of talented designers asking ‘how can we make this experience better’ and a talented team of developers with the ability to bring new platforms and applications to life in both form and function. The combination of dreamers and doers on one team is a powerful competitive advantage.”
