ibbit does that: Metro style web apps for your business software, today
Today we're excited to announce a product we've been secretly working on for a while: ibbit.
ibbit is a server and application framework, built on Microsoft technologies, that makes it easy to get amazing business software for a fraction of the price and in the shortest time possible.
If you're familiar with (and perhaps have even installed and are running) Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you know about the tremendous usability and design improvements that have been made by Microsoft with Metro style apps. Some of these improvements have bridged the gap to the Windows 8 desktop, but only in minor ways.
After having used Windows Phone for over a year, we're very familiar with what makes the platform a joy to use every day. We've also run Windows 8, in various capacities, on our personal computers since the beta was made available last fall.
We love Windows Phone and the promise of Windows 8. We also love the web. And we adore Metro.
ibbit combines our affections for all of these things into an incredible, affordable solution for next-generation business software.
Forget being tied to ancient technologies and ugly software interfaces: With ibbit, we've created a framework through which we can quickly build and deploy business software that is highly usable, beautifully designed and most importantly, works as good as it looks.
Pre-built ibbit components currently include forms, dashboards, maps, workflows and reports, all of which can be customized to your unique business needs. Apps created with ibbit will also run in any modern web browser and operating system, including Windows and Mac OS X.
We've made it extremely easy for ibbit to be hosted on your own internal network server, with your own data. We then provide our application framework; setup, training and management services included.
Finally, ibbit includes a powerful dashboard interface that allows you to manage users, publish new apps and combine all of your data, from across different ibbit apps, into a single, cohesive stream of updates and activity.
We're tired of seeing people suffer with lousy software.
So we did something about it.
And that something is ibbit.
