Capriza: Empowering Enterprise Apps with Mobility

CIO Vendor Every day people are empowered to be more efficient through the use of mobile applications. However, the mobile revolution has yet to completely penetrate the enterprise. Most existing business applications were not built with mobility in mind and cannot be accessed from a mobile device, leaving employees chained to their desktops. With no clarity in the market on the best strategy for developing mobile apps for these systems (e.g. CRM, ERP, portals, custom applications, etc.), companies are considering traditional development, which, according to Forrester, may cost up to $250,000 per native app and 6-9 months of work. The high cost of development reinforces the chasm between the mobile-savvy worker and the desktop-only business applications. Even after an enterprise mobile has been developed, there are still technological and cost barriers associated with the deployment, security and distribution of an app.

Capriza’s Outlook

Palo Alto-based Capriza solves this problem. Founded in 2011 by ex-Mercury Interactive executives and founders, Yuval Scarlat, CEO, Oren Ariel, CTO, Ronnen Armon, the VP of R&D and Amnon Landan, the Chairman of the company, Capriza provides a disruptive approach to mobility that starkly contrasts the costly and lengthy processes inherent to traditional mobile app development. Capriza’s solution removes the technical obstacles of development and significantly reducing the cost and time it required to take a business mobile.

The Capriza Advantage

Capriza enables IT to extend business workflows to any mobile device with zero coding, zero APIs and zero integrations.
The Capriza Designer provides the ability to create 'lite mobile apps' that meet specific business needs while also removing the technical burden of a conventional 'one size fits all' native app strategy. This means that IT can create, deploy and iterate on a suite of mobile apps in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of in-house native app development.

Capriza apps, called "zapps", are HTML5 and therefore, run on all modern mobile devices and are accessible from anywhere. IT can deploy zapps to the workforce in minutes through email, SMS or by integrating with a corporate MDM solution or app store. Zapps can be hosted exclusively by Capriza or entirely on client infrastructure, keeping the data safe and secure. Additionally, Capriza provides custom dashboards to IT for receiving and responding to feedback, managing usage, and tracking deployment and uptake statistics for its internal user base.

Capriza's solution substantially increases the return on a company's existing investment by instantly providing mobile access to its business application (and in very cost effective way). With Capriza, mobilizing businesses is now feasible at a large scale and an order of magnitude faster and cheaper.

Looking Ahead

The company has grown exponentially since its inception in 2011 into a 40+ member company with offices in Palo Alto and Tel Aviv. In an environment where companies are searching frantically for solutions to overcome its ever-increasing app creation obstacles, Capriza is a breath of fresh air. Capriza's one-of-a-kind approach and state of the art technology is creating waves around the world amongst IT executives. Judging by the success of this company in such a short span of time, it is only fair to say that the future of Capriza looks bright and the current players in the enterprise mobility space had better keep an eye out.
