Scottrade selects Kony for mobile app development and deployment


Kony Solutions announced it has been selected by online
investing firm Scottrade to develop and deploy its mobile application, now
available on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry devices.


Leveraging the Kony Platform, Scottrade worked with Kony
to create mobile stock market research and trading application. The free app
offers more real-time research, news and analyst views than any other
direct-competitor apps on the market.


In choosing Kony,
Scottrade understood that the Kony Platform generates each client specific
application, optimized for that channel and format. This is accomplished using
Kony’s ‘Write Once, Run Everywhere’ single application definition rather than
solely mobile web solutions or multiple code bases like other options on the


Kony’s ability to create applications for more than 9,000
devices, seven operating systems and 15 browsers without compromising native
features and functionality enables brands like Scottrade to offer robust mobile
experiences to consumers.


Scottrade Mobile, developed on the Kony Platform, offers
a robust mobile application experience, empowering investors with a better way
to stay up-to-the-second with the information they need to react to changes in
the market, including streaming quotes, news and charting.


Kony provides an SLA that states support of new versions
of an existing platform SDK within 30 days of its release to the developer
community and an SLA of 90 days for completely new device and operating system


In addition to providing financial companies with our
best-in-class mobile platform, we also offer a customizable vertical
application built on best practices, specifically for mobile financial
services, providing off-the-shelf functionality that lets companies reach their
customers and employees on any device, operating system or browser without
compromises,” said Raj Koneru, CEO, Kony.


Kony Solutions recently announced that Hong Leong Bank
(HLB), a local bank in Malaysia, has deployed
a transactional mobile banking app on three smartphone platforms namely Apple
iPhone’s iOS, Google’s Android OS and the RIM BlackBerry OS.


Hong Leong Bank  partnered with Kony  to create
the new Hong Leong Connect Mobile Banking App, which offers customers access to
banking accounts on-the-move, to perform instant fund transfer via their mobile
phone, to locate Hong Leong Bank’s points of services, and more.
