Phunware, Inc. — mobile software that exhibits game-like mechanics and behavior to engage customers and drive digital transformation

Every business aims to increase its audience base, brand popularity, sales, and revenue generation. A mobile application is capable of doing all these and helps businesses find multiple growth opportunities and generate hefty revenues.

Today, smartphone users are growing by leaps and bounds. It is believed that approximately 80% of the world’s population of late uses mobile phones. And they use their mobile devices to accomplish their day-to-day needs, be it taxi booking, shopping, online ticket purchasing, or anything.

In this age of mobility, it is not only challenging but also impossible to live without our smartphones. The reason behind this dependability is the mobile apps that have made human life so simple. These apps are changing the way we live our everyday lives. And to get things done, we need lots of mobile applications.

Times have certainly changed. Not long ago, mobile applications were associated with only large corporations and businesses. But that part of the story is in the past now. Today, the majority of smaller corporations make use of the benefits of mobile apps to serve their clients in a better way and see a higher ROI.

The business world is no more about printing advertisements, handling pamphlets, hanging billboards, and your technical people answering every customer query. The world has gone mobile, and you should too!

Phunware, Inc., is one of the best companies in the market providing mobile application development services. Phunware is the pioneer of Multiscreen as a Service (MaaS) – the only fully integrated services platform that enables brands to engage, manage and monetize their anytime, anywhere users. Phunware has introduced category-defining experiences that challenge the outer limits of the most advanced multiscreen devices for the world’s most respected brands.

The story of Phunware

In early 2009, every large enterprise business was starting a digital transformation. Computing was transitioning to the cloud, application consumption was transitioning to mobile, and software and data were transitioning to Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models.

On February 23, 2009, Alan Knitowski, Luan Dang, and Alan Kane founded Phunware to focus on one of the most significant and strategic opportunities in all of the information technology — the opportunity to provide businesses with a software platform that could help engage, manage and monetize customer experience journeys over mobile devices, directly impacting and improving brand interactions, business results, and revenue.

The sudden shift to mobile made Phunware’s founders consider — What would happen if they could use their software platform within the application portfolios of the world’s largest corporations and brands to create a massive database of proprietary Phunware IDs for every device touching networks globally to then reach everyone, everywhere, in real-time, on a 1:1 basis?

By relentlessly addressing the needs of Fortune 5000 customers to create and manage category-defining mobile experiences for their application users, they have successfully expanded Phunware offerings to provide everything brands need to create “sticky” experiences throughout the mobile application lifecycle — from application strategy and creation to application discovery and user acquisition to data-science-based application user monetization and engagement.

Since 2009, Phunware has been helping Fortune 5000 brands engage, manage, and monetize their mobile audiences.
