PRLog - Jan. 9, 2012 - SUNSHINE COAST, Australia -- If there was one thing to learn from the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, it was that companies, institutions, businesses and entire industries could no longer afford to simply push products.

Following the cataclysmic proliferation of the iPad into our daily lives, leading banking and financial service providers were quick to join the trend of using the iPad as a way to foster deep and longstanding relationships with customers.
Both internally and externally—mobile applications are at the forefront of the customer service revolution in banking and financial services.
iApps Pty Ltd, Australia’s leading mobile application developer, has commenced work on a high-profile development for one of the nations largest financial institutions, constructing an exclusive iPad application that will position the provider as being Australia’s market leader in financial services.

iApps Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Andrew Longhorn—combines over 25 years of experience developing for blue-chip companies such as British Aerospace, Accenture, EMC and Rio Tinto.
“In my career, i’ve worked with the department of defence, private security firms, as well as other government agencies, so unlike our competitors, we’re able to build mature relationships with our clients without compromising the integrity of their data, or the credibility of their service.
“There’s an interesting shift facing the financial services and banking industry at the moment. Financial services in Australia are becoming less stoic, increasingly transparent, intimate, mobile and more customer-focused.
"The GFC has tightened all our belts, reinvigorated our resourcefulness—
