Roamler Launches Roamler for Android
Android essential to enter new countries.
10 JUNE 2013, AMSTERDAM
SummaryFor its second birthday, Roamler launches 'Roamler for Android'. Providing a platform for Android users is a necessary step to realize the ambition to be the number one global player for fact based insights.
As of today, Roamler for Android is available in the Google Play store. With this step Roamler meets the wish of many Roamlers who switched to Android since Roamler started. The company has grown significantly since the start almost two years ago. In addition to the Netherlands, the originating country, Roamler has been launched in the UK and Sweden and more countries are lined up to start later this year. Expanding to other mobile platforms is necessary in order to accommodate this growth.
Roamler has been developing the Android version since late 2012. Since then, the Android app has been used by Intersport, which armed its staff with Roamler to monitor their in-store activation in over 30 countries. This new Roamler concept is called Dedicated Roamler and empowers companies to use their own staff to gather unified information, in real time. In order to support this concept, an Android version was also a necessity.
Roamler for Android is available for smart phones with Android 4.0.0 or higher. It has all the features of the iPhone application, except for the activity stream. The activity stream feature will be released in the near future.
Since Roamler started two years ago, Roamlers have completed over 350.000 tasks and there are over 10.000 active Roamlers performing tasks across the Netherlands, UK and Sweden.
"You can never have a perfect app in the first release. We have learned a great deal on how to make a stable and reliable app the past 2 years. This needs a flexible approach on updating and adjusting the app. Maintaining 2 builds from the start would make us too inflexible. Now that we know what we want, we are ready for multiple platforms. " Wiggert de Haan - Founder
"We have seen a growing demand for a solution like Dedicated Roamler. Our clients start to understand the concept of location based data collection and want to use it for themselves as well. Imagine, an staff ideabox on steroids. The possibilities are endless!" Martijn Nijhuis - Founder
