With the team in place, transcosmos will provide end-to-end services for clients to let them succeed in their apps marketing initiatives. More specifically, transcosmos will help clients rapidly implement "Yappli," an app platform that empowers over 400 companies, reduce app management workloads, run marketing promotions to drive user traffic to apps, execute initiatives using both apps and their owned media, integrate the apps with various other solutions, and more.
At the same time, transcosmos aims to develop 20 Yappli certified members by the end of the fiscal year 2020, to let the company's "Yappli" experts, who know its functions and distinctive features inside out, present proposals and deliver "Yappli" development and management services to many more clients.
