Kony, Inc., the leading enterprise mobility company, today announced that BBVA Compass will use Kony's application development platform to design and deploy some mobile banking applications across several operating systems and platforms.
BBVA Compass, a leading U.S. banking franchise based in the Sunbelt region, chose Kony’s cloud-based application development platform for its integrated set of products and services that spans the full software development lifecycle. The bank expects the platform to help it continue to create cutting-edge apps and stay up-to-date on new mobile form factors, operating systems and platforms.
“We want to give our clients access to banking services anywhere, any time, and on the device of their choice,” said BBVA Compass Chief Digital Banking Officer Jeff Dennes. “We anticipate that Kony’s mobile application solution will help us do this by streamlining workflows, accelerating development timeframes and lowering total costs of ownership, ultimately giving our clients more access and control over their financial lives.”
The bank also expects Kony’s app development platform — which allows a single design to be deployed across multiple operating systems and platforms — to enable rapid mobile application development, streamline integration with back-end systems, and simplify the app maintenance and management process. This is particularly important when keeping apps current with the latest versions of mobile devices, operating systems and platforms.

We are excited to partner with BBVA Compass as they quickly respond to market needs and increase business efficiency through mobility.”
