Portals and mobile apps, for example for monitoring, driving and maintenance

The Portal & App factory of Sioux specialises in the development of portals and mobile apps for high-tech companies. In addition to functionality and user experience, the connectivity with devices and data visualisation are leading themes. We know the business cases, knowledge domains and business processes of our clients and think in total solutions to improve their results.

More and more high-tech companies use portals and mobile apps, as a functional component of products, to improve processes, and to intensify customer relationships. Sioux supports them in part-time projects or by taking full project responsibility. We create added value as a multidisciplinary development partner, but also by looking beyond technology.

Mobile apps can make or break your product. ‘Mobile apps can make or break your product. ’

Bas van Loon, project manager at Sioux

Sioux has a broad experience in developing and building portals and mobile apps without compromising to functionality. This requires specific knowledge about cloud and web services, data mining and platform independent software development, visualisation and intuitive use. Next to this, we combine various competencies, such as linking devices and back-end systems, mathematical algorithms for fast data processing and wireless communication technology. After all, high end portals and apps are never stand-alone solutions.
