bigtincan Showcases Strong Growth Heading Into 2013

Subscription Bookings Grew by More Than 1,000 Percent in 2012 as Market for Enterprise Grade Mobile Content Management Technology Explodes

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- bigtincan, the enterprise content and productivity hub for mobile devices, announced today that the company has seen an impressive 1,026 percent subscription bookings growth over the past 12 months. The company's success stems directly from the growing adoption of bigtincan hub, the company's flagship solution that's significantly improving the productivity and efficiency of mobile workforce.

bigtincan hub offers employees on the road immediate access to all their business content from anywhere -- intelligently prioritized and with the unique ability to easily edit, share and collaborate directly on the iPad without having to switch applications. In 2012 alone, bigtincan saw a 10x increase its customer base, added four new offices around the world and saw particular traction in several industries including healthcare, automotive and telecommunications.

"With more than 100 customers conducting business across six continents, our secure, intelligent and social mobile solution is driving BYOD adoption and improving enterprises' efficiency around the globe," said David Keane, CEO/managing director of bigtincan. "Thousands of users rely on bigtincan hub every day in order to close deals and drive business and we're consistently developing new, innovative ways to improve their experience and productivity."

bigtincan's ahead-of-the-curve technology is significantly improving employees' workflow with context-aware capabilities that drive productivity for mobile workers. And according to Gartner's recent report, Effects of Mobility on Information Management(1), "The future of mobile computing will be context-aware computing with mobile applications adjusting to the user's location, identity and past behaviors. Contextual mobile applications will lead to new user experiences that will be simple, visually attractive, compelling and interactive."

bigtincan also strengthened its grip on the market in 2012 by developing several partnerships with key mobility and telecom players such as Apperian, AT&T and Singapore Telecom Group. The company expanded its global footprint with offices in Boston, Paris, Singapore and Tokyo, and was also selected by a variety of enterprises that include networking giant Cisco, health-focused organizations such as Hologic and Merck, and most recently, the award-winning auto dealership Jones Junction.

"Car sales people are not techies by any means," said Bryan Kilby at Jones Junction. "bigtincan hub's easy-to-use interface allowed our sales team to access, edit and share every type of file out there. Even better, it gave us the power to push the most valuable, up-to-date content to their iPad instantly. No need to fumble through and search for the right document in front of the customer. Everything is front-and-center on the iPad, ranked in order of value or priority."

Additionally, bigtincan made several noteworthy strategic hires in 2012 including:

  • Patrick Welch as President and Chief Operating Officer -- seasoned mobile and B2B technology executive
  • Barry Bycoff as Chairman of the Board -- award-winning entrepreneur and investor with decades of experience and industry expertise

"2012 was a fantastic year for bigtincan and we're off to an incredibly impressive start in 2013," added Keane. "bigtincan hub is the central nervous system of enterprise mobility strategy and we're excited about the potential we have this year as mobile platforms like the iPad continue to gain speed in the enterprise and become more of the standard."

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
