ROCHESTER- It’s estimated that more than 90 percent of all Americans own a smartphone, a massive consumption that has created a strong demand for mobile technology, and it’s easy to see why. Mobile apps offer businesses an advantage in a variety of ways, ranging from analytics to customer-relations management, and even easing collaboration and human resource services. Gartner Inc., a leading technology and advising company, predicts by late 2015, there will be 4.9 billion devices connected to the Internet, an increase of 30 percent from 2014.

New Hampshire entrepreneur Alex Bakman started up his company SnAPPii in 2011 to bring Android and Apple iOS apps to the local business level and help smaller businesses compete in the 21st century.

“My motivation was to solve some of the problems of mobile app development,” Bakman says. “I realize that people need about a gazillion apps because, as the Apple commercial goes, ‘there is an app for that.’ We now live in a world where there is a growing sense that each of us does indeed need an app for everything. Businesses that can meet this demand are finding handsome rewards in profits.”
