How are you different?
In conjunction with the European Space Agency, (ESA) we have developed technology platforms that allows apps to be developed at a fraction of the cost of mobile service providers. To date we have been 70% cheaper than competitive offerings and we can deliver a prototype literally in a matter of hours, with a fully functional app for the app stores in a number of days.
We also have technology instruments for the marketplace that can guarantee up to 30,000 downloads in a matter of weeks. These downloads are then available for the customer to target for marketing.
Added to the technology platforms we have, we also provide marketing solutions to our customers. We work with our customer to ensure that the app gets maximum exposure in the marketplace and our marketing solution is concentrated on getting more business for our own customers.

Why will the company / product do well?
The technology on offer delivers deployed apps directly to the customer’s phone in a matter of hours. On review the customer can then make changes before loading the app to the stores.
Technology in real time is an essential feature of the digital transformation of a business. For instance, if a small fashion house builds an app for its spring collection, the app will have to be updated for its summer collection. Market charges for this activity are at least 30% of the original cost with a timeline of at least 10 days. With the appthat2, the delivery is most likely the same day with a fixed charge for the update.
What have been your biggest wins to date?
The biggest win to date has been the project won with the European Space Agency. This was a milestone in the company’s development. Other notable wins were supply of the adapted technology to a major financial services business in Dublin and an ‘internet of things’ project with the European Commission.
