Campaign Highlights

Revolution in the mobile apps world
 

In 2008, the DIY web site creation revolution started and enabled anyone to build a professional web site easily, quickly and without prior knowledge. Now, geekApps is leading revolution for DIY business app creation. Its all-in-one DIY platform allows anyone to build a mobile app for managing small and medium-sized businesses, also without any prior app building knowledge.

Join leading investors of the high-tech world

Among the company's major investors is Amir Shaul, EMEA Treasury Director at Intel Corporation; entrepreneur Moshe Noor, founder of nurstar Media; and yellowHEAD, one of the largest performance marketing company, with which geekApps has a strategic partnership agreement. One of the first investors in the company was Assi Israeloff from the "Ma Kashur" trio, which is also leading the company's media exposure.

Global activity with hundreds of paying customers and millions of users

geekApps is growing exponentially. Since the launch of its product, the company has registered  hundreds of paying customers from 22 countries and hundreds thousands of users, all within a short period of time and without any marketing activity (organic growth).

Pitch

The idea

The world has gone mobile - everyone has a smart phone with which they constantly communicate, shop, make appointments and find services. Our smartphones are with us all day and almost everything is done through it.

 

The Need

Today’s businesses need online visibility to stay relevant in their targeted markets. In business, staying relevant is the name of the game and being present for your customers is critical.

However, today most service providers and SMBs still rely solely on websites, as opposed to mobile applications, to promote and advertise their business. Unlike building an attractive website, which today can be done easily through DIY web creation sites, building a mobile app remains a complex matter that requires prior knowledge, and the existing app building sites do not provide an adequate solution.

 

The Solution

geekApps one stop shop for DIY platforms enables all types of SMBs and service providers to simply create their own high quality business apps, raise their online exposure and increase their business activity.

 

geekApps is undercutting the superiority of larger companies in today's online and mobile marketplaces and ensuring the ongoing relevancy of SMBs and SPs in today's "mobile first" economies.

geekApps is transitioning and positioning SMBs into the mobile sphere, giving them critical omni-channel and digital presence.

 

The Technology

The premise behind geekApps products is the establishment of a fixed infrastructure with sophisticated algorithms that enable easy creation of a dedicated native application for businesses in a few simple steps of data entry; the selection of designs, fonts and other visual features. Once completed the application is automatically and quickly uploaded to iOS and Android app stores - method is described below.

SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE

 

MS SQL – the company’s database is stored here

Web Admin Panel – web based administrative interface for business owners to manage their designated app.

iOS admin panel app  – app based administrative interface for business owners to manage their designated app.

Android admin panel app  – app based administrative interface for business owners to manage their designated app.

Support Admin – management interface, support and control for geekApps support centre.

 

geekApps TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

 

geekApps platform allows anyone to set up an application automatically and have it in the app stores within a few days (in the Android app store setup time is reduced to approximately one hour after finishing building the application). geekApps has attentively priced the service at a low cost making it affordable for a broad client base. Our products and interfaces are visually pleasing, have simple to follow instructions for the app build with “help me” film clips to also assist. Users can choose to add in-app shops and/or smart diary management modules.

The company's key breakthrough technology is the API developed between the company's Admin Panel and the iOS and Android APIs.

This innovative API enables any application created using geekApps platform to be in the App Store within only 3-5 days and in most cases Play Market within an hour!

 

System advantages

 

  • Simplicity: We have created a simple, short, step by step process, with “how to” video clips all the way through the process, so that anyone can simply build the best type of app for their business. 
  • Affordability: We have completely slashed both time and financial cost of creating an app. Users are encouraged to incorporate their own personal brand and feel into the app and free responsive website.
  • Small Business Growth: We have loaded our apps with simple to implement and use business growth tools. To make sure that managing the business online is simple and time saving, we have made many important functions with a single click, including:
    • Posting feeds/videos/pictures to social platforms.
    • Notifying clients of important events or just saying ‘hello’.
    • Multiple drag and drop for pictures into the gallery and shop.
    • Simple chat facilities that mirror the capabilities of the popular chat apps.
    • Changing the website skin to suit the user’s mood or specific activities such as festivals, sales and special occasions.
    • Changing the skin back to the user’s default “look”.
    • Growing customer base - advertising your business – sending push notifications to potential clients.

  • Quality: Continuous development of new tools and features that incorporate the latest market/mobile trends into every facet of our apps.
  • Easy process for uploading apps to android and iOS shops. 
  • Our apps are fully native apps giving end-users the very best User Experience.
  • Our apps are android and iOS compatible.
