We help businesses use the Connected Revolution to their advantage.
When Applico was founded in a dorm room in 2009, our goal was simple – build the best apps possible on the market. Since then, our business expanded to include everything our clients need to successfully dominate in this age of the Connected Revolution.
Under one roof we offer all of the services necessary for building, implementing and evolving solutions that disrupt markets and invigorate internal cultural shifts. Strategy, design, development, analytics and consulting are all leveraged as needed by our clients to competitively thrive in the Connected Revolution. And as a mobile industry visionary and thought leader, we help position our clients to compete in where the market is going – not just where it is today.
Applico is paving the way for a new type of mobile services company.
