Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
After making its mark on the Kansas City landscape with the news that it would be one of the firms to beta test Google Inc.’s groundbreaking technology – Google Glass – in 2013, Engage Mobile Solutions continues to develop solutions for clients that transform their businesses and industries.
In addition to being involved in one of the most dynamic industries in the world right now –Engage Mobile is rapidly growing its revenue and number of employees as well as winning multiple awards and accolades in the past year. The company’s success is simply remarkable.
When it comes to the bottom line, the numbers speak for themselves. Engage Mobile quadrupled its revenue in 2013, says president Matthew Barksdale. He expects revenue will more than double in 2014.
Add to that the honors the company has received in the last year, and it’s hard not to take notice. Among the firm’s recent accomplishments:
Selected as one of the 20 “Most Promising Enterprise Mobility Companies in the U.S.”
Named one of Kansas City’s top companies with fewer than 25 employees
Chosen as a top-three finalist for the 2014 Appy Awards for its Vs. Football app in the category of Games: Action/Arcade/Sports
On top of company achievements, both of Engage Mobile’s top leaders – CEO Darrin Clawson and president Matthew Barksdale – have been recognized in the Kansas City community in recent months for their innovative ideas and unique business strategy.
Engage Mobile founder and CEO Clawson was chosen for Kansas City’s elite Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program. HEMP is comprised of some of the Midwest’s top forward-thinking business leaders.
As president, Barksdale was recently selected as part of the KC Chamber’s Access for Entrepreneurs program, which touts its members as “Kansas City’s most dynamic entrepreneurs.” The group strives to capture the energy and innovation behind local businesses while encouraging civic leadership.
Beneath it all, Engage continues quietly adding clients and securing some of the top mobile strategy and development talent in the country.
“We have assembled a team of some of the best mobile minds in the country,” Clawson says. “Creating one of the top teams in the country allows us to develop complex solutions that significantly drive the success of our clients. We are not just about building mobile apps – we are about helping our clients transform their business through the adoption of mobile technology.”
In addition to building mobile apps for clients, Engage Mobile took the helm and launched its own cutting-edge gaming app, Vs. Football, just in time for gridiron season last fall.
The freemium app, which had over 1 million plays called in its first 9 months, features old-school, smash mouth-strategy football. Users play against their friends and are able to act as the coach and call plays from their own digital playbook. In the game, Engage Mobile developers introduced a revolutionary technology called the “outcome decision engine” which instantly analyzes the particular offensive/defensive play combination players have selected and determines the most likely outcomes based on complex algorithms developed by high school and college football coaches.
This innovative gaming app got Engage Mobile its finalist nomination for the 2014 Appy Awards, which acknowledge creativity and excellence in app design.
And the Google Glass testing that helped put Engage Mobile on the map last year? It’s gotten faster and more innovative. In the past year, Engage Mobile has used Google Glass to capture first-hand views of playful penguins at the Kansas City Zoo, put race car fans in the driver’s seat on a test run at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and immersed classical music lovers in melodic interludes as part of the orchestra at the Kansas City Symphony.
Engage Mobile stands poised to continue its remarkable growth.
“We are just getting started,” says vice president Steve Timperley. “In the second half of 2014 we will be launching enterprise mobile apps for several major public and private companies that will impact industries ranging from health to retail. Our experience is rapidly compounding – innovation leads to more innovation, success leads to more success. It is a very exciting time.”
