OUR STORY

Mobility delivers results, agility,
and innovation

JourneyApps delivers great mobile solutions, quickly. The JourneyApps Platform and battle-tested implementation approach enables the building and delivering of complete mobile solutions. Businesses get results, agility, and innovation without the typical setbacks, spiralling costs and disappointments normally associated with app development.

Each company’s business processes are unique, which is why we offer a flexible solution that quickly adapts to your business processes, instead of trying to force your business to adapt your processes to fit an “off the shelf” solution.

JourneyApps is a global company based in Colorado and South Africa and enjoys the backing of prestigious Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

Emerging markets have always been a hotbed of innovation. Businesses in Africa have been quick to leverage enterprise mobility, often leapfrogging their industrialized counterparts not only in mobile adoption and consumer mobility, but also in enterprise mobility. For years, since the emergence of smartphones as critical business tools, JourneyApps has worked with leading, innovative companies to build mobile enterprise solutions, using mobile as a tool to drive rapid growth, efficiency, and innovation.

Since then JourneyApps has scaled rapidly and today its customers make use of the JourneyApps Platform on six continents.
