Direct revenue from mobile applications will triple in 2011 to reach more than 15 billion dollars, according to a Gartner study issued earlier this year. At Open Web Technology, we are convinced that the potential of mobile applications goes far beyond monetizing an app on an online store:
- Mobile applications have become an essential part of a multi-channel strategy, from marketing and sales to customer-care. Today, organizations must follow the trend and engage with their audience in an interactive and relevant manner through well-designed apps.
- Mobile applications have opened the door to Enterprise mobility. People have instant access to information through enterprise apps anywhere, anytime, which fundamentally changes the way they used to work. Improved productivity, better reactivity are among the immediate benefits.

With a common code base, we can deploy applications for the main mobile operating systems including iOS, Android, Windows mobile and Blackberry on different screen formats (smartphones, tablets). Our specialists will guide you through the complex world of mobile technologies and define the best platforms and mobile application types (web, hybrid, native) to suit your needs.

Information architecture traditionally refers to a website’s structure: hierarchy and navigation. At Open Web Technology, we believe that Information architecture encompasses all aspect related to interacting with people online. This includes interactions on the web site itself, and also interactions in social network, and other channels such as mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and set top boxes.
Yet organizing functionality and content across multiple channels into a structure that people are able to navigate intuitively doesn’t happen by chance. Our specialists will first understand your business strategy and user needs, feel the style of communication that your brand wants to push define the high level content structure across your channels and finally detail the structure for each channel and the content relationships that best address user and search engine behaviors.
Still, Information architecture is more experience than science; therefore it shall continuously be improved according to customer feedback, analytics and A/B testing. Our specialists guide you through this continuous improvement process and inform you about the new trends in Search Engine Optimization, social networks and new enabling technologies.
Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
Collaboration is key to company growth. Enterprise Content Management is about enhancing a company’s efficiency around knowledge, each company actor becoming a knowledge worker. Location and agenda incompatibilities among workers are no more an issue. The company becomes greener thanks to the papers saved by document dematerialization.
Generalizing the usage of an Enterprise content management across the company is challenging, each department usually having its own way of managing content, however the benefit of sharing information beneath a single and closed group is significant (traditional work-silos are removed). Our experts will help you defining your content lifecycle, from its initial transformation into digital content (either natively or through dematerialization), through its exchange, collaboration, versioning, unicity and publication and finally, to its archiving, retention and disposal.
Open Web Technology is your partner to deliver not only strategies and processes to leverage knowledge within your company, but also the state of the art solutions and technologies to support them.
Web Content management (WCM)
In the past, when we wanted to change a page or add content on a website, the only way was by understanding HTML or having someone with technical skills to write it.
To resolve this issue, Web Content Management systems have been developed to enable people without technical skills to manage their basic pages. This is a collaborative process where all the staff can manage the creation of structured web pages together.
Nowadays with social media, forums, comments and blogs companies are interacting with their consumers. A website is no longer a static information page with a one-way communication, it is a connection between a company and its customers. This way, content, community and commerce are closely linked. Our goal at Open Web Technology is to identify the best platform of content management which matches with your company size, services and products. We have had the opportunity to implement a number of Web Content Management solutions (incl. Wordpress, Drupal and others) for several companies.
In addition, no matter how well-designed a website is, it remains ineffective if your customers cannot find it. That’s why we also improve your text (SEO, SEM) develop your e-reputation and place your website based on specific keywords in search engines.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
The success of a company is closely related to how it knows and interacts with its customers. Customer relationship management (CRM) is about maintaining customer data and leveraging that data to enhance company processes and customer interaction. Company departments can share customer data in order to provide an enhanced quality of service to customers. Company processes will vary from support to purchasing, through communications and invoicing.
