Solstice Cited as a Strong Performer by Independent Research Firm in B2C Mobile Services Providers Report

CHICAGO, October 27, 2016 -- Solstice, an award-winning emerging technology and innovation firm that serves Fortune 500 clients, is honored to be recognized by Forrester as among “top B2C mobile services providers.”

Solstice was among only 13 enterprise service providers selected to participate in “The Forrester Wave™: B2C Mobile Services Providers, Q4 2016.” Forrester's comprehensive 20-criteria evaluation examined how each provider measures up and helps application development and delivery professionals make the right choice. In this evaluation, Solstice was cited as a Strong Performer.

Solstice was one of only three firms to receive the highest marks for employee retention and was recognized for its best-in-class mobile UX design and Customer Experience Driven Development (CXDD™) development process. “As technology becomes outdated and less effective, mobile moment design and user experience (UX) skills, employee retention, and a robust partner ecosystem will dictate which providers stand out from the pack.”

“I believe that this recognition is a reaffirmation of what we set out to do over 15 years ago,” said Solstice Founder and CEO, J Schwan. “To leverage the latest technology to help our clients create unparalleled customer experiences.”

According to the Forrester Research report authored by VP, Principal Analysts Liz Herbert and Jeffrey S. Hammond, “Solstice is best suited to clients looking for a mobile app development partner that wants to move quickly and to clients that need a full-stack technology provider that can also handle back-end integrations.”

While staying grounded in its mobile foundation, Solstice is helping its clients embrace emerging technology. The Forrester report goes on to say that while Solstice was originally founded as a mobile specialist, they are “rapidly evolving into a digital specialist by steadily branching out to other devices and channels, including engineering and connecting to IoT devices, Amazon Alexa integrations, and chatbots.”
