Dave Koziol and Keith Bourne, two of the most active people in mobile in southeast Michigan, are joining forces to deliver a new level of mobile strategy through Arbormoon Software, Inc. Arbormoon, already known for years of delivering some of the most successful mobile projects in the mobile field, can now provide a full service mobile solution for clients. With the addition of Keith Bourne, Arbormoon is starting a mobile strategy division, focused on helping clients reach their full potential with their mobile efforts.
The combination of these two industry veterans certainly indicates a bright future for Arbormoon and their clients. Given the complex world of mobile, it is very easy for a well intentioned mobile project to go awry, becoming a drain on financial resources, rather than a boon to operational efficiencies and increasing the bottom line. Arbormoon has the expertise to wade through these waters and deliver on the high potential mobile offers. Keep an eye out for Arbormoon as it continues its rise to the top tier of mobile development firms in the U.S. We expect our joint efforts to have a major impact on the local mobile scene in southeast Michigan as we expand not just the services of Arbormoon, but as we collaborate on a variety of activities to support the local mobile community through Mobile Monday, Cocoaheads, and new projects that are in the works.
