AppBuddy was founded by a group of technologists who wholeheartedly believe in the power of data to help people see the truth about their organizations and to do the right things at the right time. Through years of building cloud enterprise applications, we discovered how to solve common issues users have executing their business processes and getting data into their systems of record.
Leveraging this experience, we decided and put our minds and hearts to the task of making any enterprise user experience one where users can instantly derive insight into what’s going on and quickly move things along. Above all, we believe in promoting organizational happiness, and contribute to this through designing solutions with a “human first” approach in mind.
It all started with the vision to build configurable cloud applications that change how organizations connect with their data to gain deeper insights and connect business processes. AppBuddy was founded in 2009, and since has become a leader in business process integration. Today we continue our mission to deliver innovative applications that work the way users work and reach across business silos to provide exceptional customer experiences and business process efficiency.
