Last week here at Podium Apps we published our 100th app. It was a proud moment for Ross & I, as it has only been 18 months since we soft launched, and a little over one year since we both jumped in full time.

Since we started, we have tried to ensure that our apps platform was suitable for all types of small business, groups & individuals. We have deployed apps for charities, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, cafes, sports franchises, hair salons, barbers, artisan food suppliers, takeaways, and celebrities to name a few. We now have apps live in Canada, US, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, England, Australia & New Zealand.

We’ve got a great group of passionate Business Development Managers spread throughout the world, who all see how apps are transforming the small business landscape. We expect to welcome another 25 BDM’s to our team over the next 12 months.

It is incredibly satisfying to see the positive reception our apps are having, and the difference they are making in our customers businesses. It won’t be long until we’re announcing our 200th app, as we’ve another 35 apps to publish in the next month alone.

It’s been a fantastic journey so far, and we’re just getting started. Thank you for your early support of Podium Apps, we couldn’t do it without you.

If you’ve just found us and are interested in discussing an app of your own, don’t hesitate to drop us a line here.

Kieran here – 6 months since the last update on our blog! We’ve been flat out here at Podium, and now we’re ready to start talking about it.

We have had a great first half of 2016. Since the start of the year a lot has changed at Podium – we’ve gone from a team of 6 to a team of 23, and we’re firmly focussed on growth throughout the rest of 2016 and beyond. From the beginning, Ross & I set out to create a worldwide brand, and so with that in mind I left Northern Ireland at the end of January to begin a 6 month nomadic journey to build the team which has taken me from New Zealand, to Australia, to Malaysia, to Thailand, and right now I am in Hong Kong. Tomorrow I travel to the Philippines to extend the network further.

We’ve welcomed on board 74 new customers from all over the world. We have built apps for businesses in Northern Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States. We’re working with some hugely exciting brands, businesses and organisations, and are very proud to say that we have just passed the 100,000 download mark for apps that we have built.

As we’ve grown so to has the demand for new types of functionality, and over the coming months we will be releasing some hugely innovative apps for our customers. As we deploy new features we’ll blog about them, and show you some real world case studies as to exactly how our clients are benefiting.

As always, if you have an idea for an app that you’d like some feedback on, a brainstorming session or even a quote don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. You can find the contact details for your closest representative on our contact page.
