Mutual Mobile Announces Strong Q3, Adds Fortune 500 Brands to Client Roster

Mutual Mobile today announced the demand for post-PC era mobile business solutions continued to skyrocket in Q3, resulting in 85 percent revenue growth over the same quarter a year ago. This is the company’s fourth consecutive quarter of growth supported by ongoing success across the Fortune 500, where its custom software solutions are transforming the way organizations do business, from the back office to the point of sale, across iOS, Android, Windows 8 and the Web.

“Mobile isn’t just a platform, it’s fundamentally changing the way business is conducted -- and over the past few quarters, we’ve seen brands truly recognize the impact it can have on their bottom line,” said John Arrow, CEO of Mutual Mobile. “Whether it’s employees realizing new levels of productivity, brands engaging consumers via mobile commerce, or educators increasing literacy rates, Mutual Mobile is changing the way people live, work and play.”

As part of today’s news, Mutual Mobile also announced a new presence in San Francisco and the hiring of Dan McCall as general manager. McCall joins Mutual Mobile from Taptera, where he was co-founder and chief product officer. Prior to Taptera, McCall spent time at Genentech, where he was program manager in charge of the company’s enterprise mobility strategy and execution.

Mutual Mobile now has more than 300 employees worldwide, making it one of the largest employers of iOS experts in the industry.

Additional Q3 highlights include:

  • Strong Sales. Mutual Mobile saw significant growth in sales across new business and existing clients in retail, manufacturing, technology and transportation segments, adding AutoTrader.com and Jaguar Land Rover to its growing list of prestigious clients.
  • Platform Innovation. Mutual Mobile introduced its Mobile Sales Enablement solution, a customized framework that helps companies win more deals, increase productivity, and make better business decisions. The solution is already driving significant results for customers such as Audi, CoStar and J.Hilburn, and continues to see strong demand. The company also expanded its support to include iPhone 5, iOS 6, and newly-launched Windows 8 and Android devices.
  • Marketing Innovation. Mutual Mobile launched a new fully-responsive corporate website which is accessible on any device. Visits to the site have since increased by 60 percent, total page views have increased by 73 percent and average time spent on the site has increased by one minute. Visits from mobile devices also increased, with iPad and iPhone visits nearly doubling and tripling, respectively.
  • Industry Accolades. Mutual Mobile was named an honoree on the 2012 Empact100 list for being one of the “Top 100 Companies Started by Young Entrepreneurs” age 30 and under. In 2012, the companies on the Empact Showcase contributed more than 8,000 jobs to the economy, and controlled $1 billion in revenue. Additionally, CEO John Arrow spoke to attendees at TeXchange and the Association for Corporate Growth, and was quoted in Forbes, Could Mobile Animated GIF Apps Be The Next Instagram?
