Founded by Apple Vets, Apperian Gets Down to Business with the iPhone
The Apple iPhone is perhaps the most powerful mobile phone ever built, so it’s no surprise that big enterprises want to use it, both to make their mobile workforces more efficient and to help customers access their products and services in new ways. But Apple, for a variety of reasons, isn’t interested in catering directly to businesses with the features and software they’d like. So enterprise adoption of the iPhone has been ginger and gradual; you’re far more likely to see sales reps, insurance adjusters, or delivery van drivers carrying Windows Mobile or Blackberry devices than iPhones.
To fill the void left by Apple, and to show how businesses can take advantage of the device’s capabilities, a team of former Apple executives and developers has split off from the company to form Apperian, a Boston-based, iPhone-centric software consultancy that opened its doors in January.
