Volume, a leading global provider of digital content, technology and innovation and Pocket App, the UK’s largest independent app developer, are delighted to announce a new partnership which will see the two organisations co-developing mobile applications for enterprises.

The two companies will collaborate to design and enhance new and existing applications for global clients looking for closer integration of mobile applications with their business applications.

As more organisations migrate to the Cloud, this is heralding an unprecedented shift in how businesses consume and utilise technology. Moving all or a significant part of the IT infrastructure either to a public, private or hybrid cloud delivers significant cost and operational benefits and many businesses are now looking to take advantage of this. A cloud-based infrastructure however, will not directly impact end-users – employees, partners and customers. The user experience, interface and preference of device is equally important in the consumerisation of ‘software’.

Chris Sykes, Founder and Chief Executive of Volume comments, “For most people, the device of choice is a mobile one and the applications we use for work, leisure and social engagement should deliver the same experience. This development partnership with Pocket App brings together a unique blend of skills into a single capability set. Digital natives and new user generation mobile users live in a ‘pull’ world where they control and subscribe to the content they want to consume. ‘Push’ content models are a thing of the past and therefore you need a front-to-back approach to mobile app and software development. Volume and Pocket App are certainly ahead of that curve.”

Andrew Hull, Strategy Director at Pocket App comments, “We have built a great team and portfolio of mobile apps for many well-known brands. A natural next step in our evolution is to take these apps to the enterprise and with Volume’s impressive business application eco-system integrated across global organisations, we see our collective strengths positively disrupting the market.”

The partnership will also see the companies sharing London offices in the Farringdon area to service clients based in the City and to attract further talent, as both entities continue to grow.
