The McCombs School of Business of The University of Texas at Austin Development Program Unveils Research for Local App Development Firm, Appilicious(December 24, 2013)
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 24, 2013
The graduate students from McCombs School of Business development program showcased their findings in a conference this month. The information was gathered during a semester long research program. The sole focus of these 4 students was finding out how the companys day planner app Plan4Life could be expanded to target upper level professionals. Moreover what aspects of the digital planner were of use and what overall was needed to effectively help increase fast time management.
When Appilicious was chosen by the University of Texas to be apart of this educative program they felt honored because of schools reputation. Bloomberg Business week wrote, McCombs is an engaged and purposeful community of faculty, staff, students and alumni, where great minds come together to inspire innovation and change the world. During the milestone meetings Appilicious was readying their technical matrix for the results. The company trusted the program and felt that whatever their findings, they would have to be ready to move quickly on them to benefit fully.
The final presentation educated the development team on what over 200 interviewed professionals were looking for in a digital day planner solution. The research was impressive and thorough. What stood out was the overwhelming wish of these professionals that their planner could share with others. Participants of the survey wanted to see immediately their connected person's availability and make arrangements within seconds. Appilicious believes that their conclusions are exactly on trend and when implemented will be a major component to the future of Plan4Lifes success in the iTunes app store.
The research done by the graduate students at the University of Texas has given our choice to implement shared calendaring strong backing and we are excited to bring this to market in such a unique way, John Koncurat, Founder.
With the New Year around the corner the company hopes to launch the 2014 digital planner with this sharing component in place. Appilicious is working to inspire people to want to plan and believes adding sharing will set a high standard for competitors.
Appilicious also received valuable insight as to whom will be their target audience. The students found that the desired demographic is male and female with higher educational backgrounds, and professionals between the ages of 22-58 years of age. Also, that 95% of people surveyed used a digital planner. Appilicious believes this makes the choice to focus on sharing a top priority. The holiday season will increase the number of people with iPhones and iPads creating a larger market for the firm. The app firm believes with this strong market they can stand out with their intuitive functionality to entice these new customers.
Plan4Life Daily Planner is now available for $7.99 in the USA and is priced accordingly in other regions. The app is available for download to your Apple iPad or iPhone with O.S 6.1 and above.
