ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kony Solutions, the leading mobile application development platform (MADP) provider, announced today that it has been selected by Aetna as the technology platform for its newly updated Aetna Mobile health application (“app”).
Initially launched in 2010, the Aetna Mobile app is an easy-to-use resource that helps Aetna members access a number of valuable services, including claims status, prescription drug pricing and electronic ID cards. By migrating the Aetna Mobile app to the KonyOne Platform, Aetna was able to add numerous new features such as an urgent care finder and information access for non-members. The Aetna app is available for iPhone and Android devices.
“As part of our commitment to creating a health care system that is more convenient, connected and cost-effective, it’s important for us to provide members with the information and services they need, when and where they need them,” said Dan Brostek, head of Member and Consumer Engagement, Aetna. “Kony’s platform has allowed us to provide our members with additional resources that improve access and convenience.”
“It’s important for companies to consider their mobile offerings as part of a long-‐term customer engagement strategy, and we’re pleased to work with a company as forward thinking as Aetna,” said Aaron Kaufman, general manager of Healthcare & Life Sciences for Kony. “With its enhanced mobile application, Aetna is offering its members innovative services at their fingertips at the moment it matters most.”
Kony’s flagship product is its KonyOne mobile application development platform. Kony’s “Write Once, Run Everywhere” technology enables developers to deploy their apps across more than 10,000 mobile smartphones/tablets/kiosks and operating systems from a single code base. Changes and upgrades can then be handled rapidly, without the need for rebuilding or republishing the mobile apps. All Kony applications can be delivered in native and mobile web (HTML5 and non-HTML5), across every mobile channel.
