In the coming months and years, mobile applications and outreach strategies built around mobile engagement will assume an increasingly vital role in the long-term growth of unions and labor organizations. More unions will turn to mobile applications and mobile-driven strategies to engage directly with their members and to provide them with critical news, information, and actionable items, putting the power of the organization into the palm of every member's hand. At Velocity, we work with our clients to create mobile application strategies that will engage and grow membership involvement.
Velocity has become the go-to company for enterprise-level mobile application development by unions and labor organizations. Our mobile apps integrate membership, campaigns, and messaging for both iOS and Android mobile applications. Our strong technical competency, responsive design style, and well-defined methodology has helped us provide mobile applications that offer information, aid membership mobilization, accelerate membership responsiveness, and bring a critical competitive and innovative edge to our clients.
Yellowstone is a mobile application management system similar to a website's CMS. Through it, Velocity is able give our clients the tools they need to directly administer nearly all aspects of their mobile applications from simple content updates to action-based, time-sensitive push notifications, and even activating or deactivating entire modules within their application. We are also able to customize Yellowstone for our clients so that they get exactly what they need from their mobile applications.
Automation is a critical, time-saving aspect of the mobile applications we build. With some simple set-up in Yellowstone, our clients' apps are able to pull in feeds for news, blogs, photos, videos, and social media, keeping your members up-to-date without extra management.
We can provide the tools for you to create, query, and track push notifications, messages, and alerts for one or multiple applications. Send a push notification to one app or to all of your applications on both iOS and Android simply and easily.
Conventions are big events for our union clients, so we provide a full-featured Conventions tool that gives our clients the ability to manage schedules, maps, speaker bios, and informational items instantaneously without having to push an update to an app store.
More than just pulling in content from a variety of social media platforms, we build mobile applications that can share in-app content, as well as the app itself, on platforms like Facebook and Twitter giving users the ability to easily share content.
Yellowstone can easily manage versions of the same application across multiple mobile operating systems, keeping content and information across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in sync.
Have a new Salsa Action for your members? Great! With Yellowstone's Salsa Integration our mobile applications can automatically display all of your Actions as soon as they're live in Salsa. Yellowstone also syncs membership information with Salsa.
