MOBI Touts Growth, New Partnerships

Posted: Updated:

Indianapolis-based mobility management software and services company MOBI says 2015 was a year of major growth. Among other accomplishments, the company hired 90 new employees and is continuing the expansion of its operations center.

MOBI says it is also doubling the size of its logistics center due to growing demand for specialized device deployments. The fourth phase of the company's facilities expansion is expected to be complete in early 2017.

MOBI CEO Scott Kraege said he is "incredibly excited" about the company's momentum coming out of 2015. MOBI saw recurring revenue from its software-as-a-service model increase 67.8 percent compared to 2014.

"We saw a significant surge in demand for our solution last year, fueled by the escalating complexities of mobile device environments within the enterprise," said Kraege. "We believe two key drivers helped us capitalize on that increase in demand. The first is our continued progress in integrating the MOBI platform with third-party software applications that touch enterprise mobility programs. These integrations allow us to centralize a broad range of mobility-related data sets, and ultimately empower administrators with actionable business intelligence, as they manage their overall mobile device strategy. We completed 27 of these new third-party integrations in 2015, demonstrating our resolve. This will continue to be a critical component in the future of managing mobile environments. The second positive trend supporting our growth has been both the volume and quality of talent we’ve been able to attract and retain. Indianapolis continues to be an extraordinary market for growing technology companies.”

The company is also celebrating the establishment of several key partnerships, including Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility Group. MOBI also reached global reseller agreements with IBM, HP Enterprise and three more partners, which will be announced in second quarter 2016.
