We propelled into the healthcare industry in January of 2016. Although it appears that we are fairly new to the market, we possess a great deal of experience in terms of healthcare business processes, domain knowledge and industry trends. Our technologists hold 11+ years of experience in implementing various mobile and portal solutions with our executive leadership team having 20+ years in the healthcare and insurance industries. We pride ourselves on our commitment to honesty and integrity as it pertains to our relationships with our business partners. Our offices include our corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and our offshore development teams located in Hyderabad, India.
With the rise in popularity of mobile devices and the ability for consumers to instantly access many forms of information from their smartphone or tablet, we set our initial focus on developing a healthcare mobile product. Leveraging our flexible and easily configurable mobile framework, we developed a mobile application for payers to distribute to their members as an additional tool to manage their health plan. Using our mobile framework, our healthcare partners are able to increase member engagement, provide new self-service tools to members and develop multiple applications using the same framework without sacrificing time as it relates to speed-to-market.
Our next focus will be on business intelligence. Our goal is to proactively offer solutions and products that are focused on solving specific business problems, thus eliminating the need for our partners to be reactive in determining how to utilize our products.
