WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today SourcingLine published an extension to its market leading research on mobile app developers. Prospective buyers of mobile application services can now identify leading firms by areas of focus. The Consumer Mobile Application Developers research identifies leading firms that focus on consumer apps such as mobile games, personal productivity and education. The Enterprise Mobile Application Developers research lists top firms that focus on corporate applications such as sales enablement, field operations and business intelligence. SourcingLine also published companion directories of Consumer App Developers and Enterprise App Developers, which provide buyers with filtering tools to help identify developers that best meet their needs.
The research focuses on firms with a proven track record of delivering high-quality applications for clients ranging from promising startups to leading global brands. The top developers were selected based on over a dozen quantitative and qualitative factors including marketing presence, company experience, clients, industry recognition, reference feedback and focus on either consumer or enterprise apps.
The leaders in developing consumer applications are as follows: Sourcebits, WillowTree Apps, Y Media Labs, OpenXcell, Fuzz Productions, Stanfy, Mubaloo, APPEK, Savvy Apps, Raizlabs, Lemberg Solutions, Ebbex, Halcyon Mobile, SoftFacade, and Oxagile.
The leaders in developing enterprise applications are as follows: Leewayhertz, Mubaloo, WillowTree Apps, Sourcebits, DevelopmentNow, Mobisoft Infotech, Softweb Solutions, Hathway, Savvy Apps, Raizlabs, Lemberg Solutions, Ebbex, Fuzz Productions, SoftFacade, and MentorMate.
"There are a number of core skills and capabilities that cut across both consumer and enterprise applications. But at the same time, there are nuances to each market," stated Tim Clarke, Senior Analyst at SourcingLine. "Consequently, you will see a mix of firms in each piece of research."
SourcingLine's effort to identify top mobile developers will be ongoing. Upcoming publications will highlight firms in UX/UI, gaming, sales enablement, and educational mobile apps.
