By Staff Writer


 

Following weeks of adjudicators sifting through contending apps, MTN Business announced the top six winners of the fourth annual MTN Business App of the Year challenge at the awards ceremony that took place in Johannesburg last night.

The MTN App of the Year challenge seeks to unearth innovative and customised apps that will create a distinct customer experience.

WumDrop was selected the winner in the Best Enterprise category and overall winner for their courier and fleet management application that allows users to pick up or deliver anything, anywhere and anytime in real-time.

Developed by Benjamin Claassen and Muneeb Samuels, the WumDrop app is available to business clients and can be incorporated in their e-commerce offering.

Other winners include DStv Now in the Best Consumer App 2015 category, Vula Mobile scooped the Most Innovative App 2015 category, CPUT Mobile walked away with the Best Enterprise  Development App 2015 category, EskomSePush won the Best Breakthrough Developer App 2015 category, while M4JAM was conferred the Best Wild Card App 2015 category.

“We are encouraged by the level of innovation and creativity that were showcased at the 2015 MTN Business App of the Year Awards. We wish to

congratulate our overall winner and runner-ups for investing their time and energy to bring solutions to everyday challenges facing the enterprise sector. We are also reinvigorated by the active participation of the developers in this competition as it complement our strategic intent of driving sustainable growth and developing new opportunities to ensure the delivery of a bold new digital world,” said Alpheus Mangale, Chief Enterprise Officer for MTN Business South Africa.

“The key to this year’s challenge was not to simply add another new App to the current line-up, but to look for an innovative idea that is set to add value and change the way business is conducted. It is for this very reason that MTN Business uses technology as a catalyst to enable and inspire its customers’ sustainable growth and development – not only in South Africa but throughout the continent.”

The annual MTN Business App of the Year Awards has grown exponentially since its inauguration in 2012. Today, MTN Business App of the Year Awards is the premiere app awards event in South Africa.

Through initiatives such as the annual App of the Year Awards, MTN will continue to refine its traditional product offering, as well as actively develop new opportunities to ensure the delivery of a bold new Digital World to its customers.  This encompasses the company’s efforts to develop participation in the enterprise sector, adjacent sectors (such as financial services) and media and entertainment.

Since MTN Business started on this journey in 2012, the intention has always been to create an enabling environment for South African developers and provide them with opportunities to compete in the global market. This has resulted in some of the previous winners going on to top the international and local app download charts.
