Korn Ferry Selects Apperian for Mobile Application Management
Apperian to Manage Deployment of Forte Mobile Application for Clients
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Apperian(R), Inc.,
the leading platform for securing and managing enterprise mobile
apps, today announced that Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY), a single source of
leadership and talent consulting services, has selected Apperian to
deploy Forte, its mobile app for career development, using
ApperianONE(TM). Based on Apperian's award-winning mobile app
management platform, ApperianONE is a first-of-its-kind program that
provides a fast and free way for customers, such as Korn Ferry, to
get an app securely into the hands of end-users with a consumer-like
mobile experience that drives adoption.
This particular deployment will assist Korn Ferry with internal
testing as well as controlled external pre-customer trials of its
Forte app. Unlike traditional device-centric methods, which require
intrusive and cumbersome technology that hampers user adoption rates,
Apperian's technology provides a seamless approach to security and
app management that drives the highest possible levels of app
adoption and does not require use of an SDK or code modifications.
This leads to fast, secure and successful deployments.
"Leveraging the ApperianONE platform to manage the deployment and
management of our Forte app is allowing us to focus on our core app
functionality and to get it into the hands of our internal and
external testers as quickly as possible," said Andy Simmons, Senior
Director of Product Development, Korn Ferry. "When considering how to
drive the adoption of a mobile app, ease of use is crucial. Korn
Ferry has many mobile applications in our portfolio and a program
like this allows us to obtain a firm grasp on what mobility
management for testing should be, and how it can add value to our
customers and employees."
As a part of the ApperianONE program, any commercial company can use
Apperian's cloud-based platform at no cost, to distribute and manage
from a private and branded app store, one custom-built mobile app as
well as an unlimited set of company-recommended public apps. This
allows enterprises, such as Korn Ferry, to experience a quick and
easy way to deploy critical mobile apps to the users who need them
"When we first announced ApperianONE, our mission was to provide a
fast and risk-free way for enterprises to experience a new and
effective approach to getting enterprise apps into the hands of users
who need them," said Mark Lorion, Chief Marketing Officer, Apperian.
"We're excited to be working with such a prestigious firm like Korn
Ferry and empowering them to reap real business benefits of mobility
in the workplace."
