At the beginning of 2012, many companies set out to produce mobile apps for their business. A year later, and many apps are still under development and over budget. We believe 2012 was the year of “costly mobile experimentation.“

In today’s ever-changing world you need a comprehensive mobile marketing strategy. One that focuses on building holistic relationships with customers.
