Making recurring revenue easily 

JimJim is an experienced Alpha Anywhere developer who works with construction companies and has several web applications in production. With TransForm, Jim saw an opportunity to immediately go back to those same clients and quickly build site inspection apps that work on smartphones and digitize what was once a cumbersome paper process. Jim has now built a suite of construction related apps and is reaching out to existing and new construction clients and showing them how quickly he can produce results for them.  Generating new IT Consulting, Systems Integration, and TransForm revenues in the process.

CarrieCarrie has long had success using Alpha Anywhere to build database applications for her manufacturing clients. Her clients have discussed being able to better record safety incidents on the factory floor, so she saw an opportunity to use TransForm to build new safety incident apps that work offline on smartphones.  She prototyped her first app in minutes with TransForm, impressed her first customer and now is seeing  an incremental revenue stream developing from all of her customers plus additional projects integrating that data with back-end systems of record and workflows.

MarkMark’s oil and gas clients clients have used custom Alpha Anywhere apps built by Mark to collect and view the data that powers their systems. Now they're using their new TransForm apps built by Mark's company to commission new equipment and perform periodic “checklist” based inspections in order to ensure problems are identified and resolved in a timely way. In the past Mark's company only got paid for the consulting hours they spent building highly customized systems but now he is excited by the increase in project throughput his development team has achieved using TransForm,  an increase in higher margin app and data integration business, and licensing revenue from the use of TransForm (which is based on the number of users of apps built in TransForm)

alpha_transform_TMThese are just a few of the success stories we've heard as we've rolled out TransForm to early adaptor Alpha Partners.

If you're an Alpha Anywhere developer,  we encourage you to take a look at TransForm, think about how it can help increasing your revenue from existing client, quickly demonstrate value to potential new potential clients, and help you grow your business!
