Update: Kony Ranked Among Top Mobile Banking Technology Vendors by Tower Group

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - Kony, the leading mobile application platform provider, today announced the company has been named a top mobile banking vendor in Tower Group's "Review of North American Consumer Mobile Banking Technology Vendors: Chasing A Moving Target" report.

According to the report, "Kony Solutions' highly customizable Mobile Banking Application has attracted the attention of several tier 1 FSIs as well as financial institutions using the solution for non-mobile banking deployments (e.g., insurance, investments). Kony led the vendors reviewed in feature/function score as well as solution customization score. Kony's solution is primarily designed for institutions that want the ultimate flexibility and control over their mobile deployments. However, only top-tier and large midtier institutions will likely have the resources or internal support for the development platform approach. The solution can be installed in turnkey fashion using Kony's professional services to deliver the application according to client specifications."
