As sharing and disseminating sensitive information of data with users has become simpler, there is progressive expansion of mobility services across all areas in the organizational structure.

Contributing significantly to this digital revolution is Proxym Group, a company that acts as a global IT player in enabling digital transformation capitalizing on IBM technologies. “Our agility and growing expertise on IBM MobileFirst combined with the IBM Bluemix cloud platform that accelerate innovation tools and integration application lifecycle management is of great help to our customers,” elucidates Wassel Berrayana, Founder and CEO, Proxym Group.

Adoption of mobililty enables organizations and processes to generate efficiency, better collaboration and streamlined interaction with customers. Often mobility projects evolve into more important initiatives of digital transformation. “For instance, in banking, we evolved our M-Banking solution into digital omnichannel banking to engage with customers through various channels,” explains Berrayana. The company blends the benefits of IBM MobileFirst with IBM Bluemix and IBM Watson to take advantage of cognitive and big data potentials. On the basis of such coalition, Berrayana says, “Our success in delivering high quality applications utilizing IBM technology has repeated several times.”

Proxym group also has a strong participation in companies working on areas of dematerialization, retail execution, mobile sales, fleet management, home automation, digital education, web marketing, and healthcare. This has allowed the company to serve a number of clients with its wide array of solutions from various verticals including healthcare, retail, distribution, banking and telecommunication. One example is an oil and gas leader in the Middle East having a strategic objective to integrate mobile capabilities for its products distribution to increase its market reach and maximize the efficiency. Two mobile applications have been built one for consumers ordering gas products and one for gas stations. Analytics has been built to monitor distribution, optimize delivery time, detect bottlenecks and provide overall customer satisfaction.
