this funding to invest in product development, sales growth,

Drawing on their collective experience developing technology
solutions while at Siebel Systems, Oracle, and SAP, the
AnyPresence team has launched a mobile platform-as-a-service
that helps businesses overcome the hurdles of building,
deploying, and maintaining mobile apps. The AnyPresence
solution includes a Web-based designer for cross-platform
app development and a mobile "backend-as-a-service," with
the ability to connect to a variety of data sources within
the enterprise. The run-time components can be compiled and
deployed instantly to scalable cloud infrastructure. All
source code generated by AnyPresence is 100% native and
available to customers should they require further
customization or on-premise hosting options, with absolutely
no platform "lock-in."
AnyPresence is currently working with customers in the
healthcare, communications, and services sectors to
accelerate their mobile initiatives by using the AnyPresence
mobile platform-as-a-service. The solution also includes
pre-built mobile app templates to further accelerate mobile
projects for consumer or employee-facing needs.
"Kinetic is excited to provide continued support for
AnyPresence as they execute on their vision," said Jake
Tarr, Managing Director at Kinetic Ventures. "As the
frenzied pace of mobile device and app adoption continues,
solutions like AnyPresence will help business scale
efficiently to meet the demand."
AnyPresence is a mobile platform-as-a-service that
dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of
mobile-enabling business processes across multiple devices.

size the ability to assemble and deploy HTML5, native iOS
and Android apps powered by a robust mobile
back-end-as-a-service, without having to install any
software. AnyPresence also provides pre-assembled mobile app
templates, interactive SMS, data source integration, and
other capabilities to further accelerate time-to-market. The
platform is easy to use, yet flexible enough to enable
