Happy 2012..

Appian recently released our biggest update yet to the Google Android platform. We have seen interest in Android surge from our clients and we are happy to announce that our Android mobile client is now at parity with our Apple iOS mobile offering.

For clients who use Appian's Android version, you will notice that the interface is different from the Apple release and optimized to be friendly and familiar for Android users. In addition, Appian Forms support has been updated on Android to support all the great features Apple users have enjoyed, such as intelligent pickers and rich media capture from the mobile camera and mic.

Appian Android Mobile BPMAppian has seen interest in Mobile BPM continue to surge with a growing list of expanded use cases and potential for process optimization. Some Mobile BPM examples we are currently implementing include: field engineering support, break-fix, field inspections, at home healthcare and nurse management, and mobile spend requests and approvals.

Demand for mobile access to critical business processes will grow for many more years as we all come to depend upon our mobile devices to perform more and more tasks previously only possible on our desktop/laptop computers.

For Appian customers, you can download and start using the latest version of the Appian Android mobile client from the Google Android Market. For just the curious, try signing up for a free Appian trial and explore the Appian BPM Suite as well as this Android mobile client update.
