Why Progress Kinvey?

Unlike traditional low-code solutions, Kinvey is architected for engaging multichannel experiences running on a modern serverless cloud platform.

Truly Native Digital Experiences

Traditional low-code vendors have a limited focus on web and mobile and they rely on aging hybrid mobile technology. Kinvey is truly native, interacting directly with mobile APIs using JavaScript—no native code required. Kinvey uses a shared model to support PWAs with built-in support for chatbots.

Low-Code Loved by Developers

Traditional low-code vendors force you to adopt a proprietary development approach that requires retraining and doesn’t fit well with existing tools and dev practices. Progress takes your existing web developers and turns them into multichannel experts without expensive retraining or re-staffing.

Low-Code Meets Serverless

Traditional low-code solutions have monolithic architectures that rely on a complex mix of technologies that will lead directly to modernization issues. The Kinvey platform is a patented serverless architecture that makes it easy to go serverless without the pain and complexity of building from scratch.

We evaluated several chatbot technologies and selected Progress Kinvey Chat because of the CognitiveFlow technology enabling the bot to hold human-like discussions. We were able to build our proof of concept digital chatbot in just weeks. Given this early success, and our focus on technology that transforms the way we do business, we’ll be looking at Kinvey Chat as the potential platform for our new robo-agent service.

Harry SinghGlobal Vice President, Experian

We did a lot of research around different solutions - we looked at building it ourselves and that looked like a 6-8 month, several hundred thousand dollar solution. We researched mobile backend as a service providers and actually went with Kinvey because it seemed like the best solution to help us get our proof of concept and get to market.

Sean Gunderson Co-Founder & CEO, iTether

We were able to start development in June and have our MVP in October and started putting it in for our initial alpha test at two different sites by the end of October.

We needed an enterprise class infrastructure for our mobile applications just like we have for all our other business critical solutions. With Kinvey on vCloud Air, we gained the benefits of a cost effective enterprise class mobile infrastructure with a fully managed service and can focus on supporting our customers.

Joel Soppet IT senior director, VMware

Product innovation is important to us, and harnessing the power of mobile gives us a competitive advantage. Kinvey makes it simple with no IT overhead. Decoupling the user interface from the backend allows our developers to focus on product innovation instead of building or maintaining the backend platform.

Ken Carrol Vice President Software Platforms, Schneider Electric

By leveraging Kinvey’s ready-to-use frontend and backend services, as well as an extremely responsive team that resolves issues within hours, we were freed from having to use our resources to build in-house expertise in these areas
