Como, which recently rebranded from its former name, Conduit Mobile, has been in the app business since 2010. It was actually established in 2005, eventually becoming the biggest provider of browser toolbars on the Internet. Last year, Conduit spun off its toolbar business to another Israeli company, Perion. What remained was the mobile division, and in May 2013 it renamed itself Como.
As part of its relaunch, Como introduced the Como Console, a redesigned interface specifically geared to small- and medium-sized businesses, providing them with an all-in-one solution for creating, promoting, and managing apps for all major mobile devices, with no coding required. The Como Console’s expanded suite of features and services gives businesses everything they need to become an integral part of their customers’ mobile lifestyle and to thrive in today’s digital world
The Como Console provides app builders with themes, icons, layouts, style, and backgrounds, along with in-app payment options for both digital and brick-and-mortar goods and services — such as customer reservations and orders, deliveries, coupons, loyalty cards, in-app sales, and other promotions.
In addition, the Console keeps track of app activities: It provides businesses with information about how the app is being used, such as which offers the customers are taking advantage of and their favorite feature of the app.
Anyone can download the apps in Como’s Gallery, and for free. Although it doesn’t cost anything to actually create an app, the free service is limited to just five downloads a month. For not too steep a price, though ($33 a month), businesses can have their app placed in the iOS App Store or in the Google Play download center, keep track of downloads and statistics, take advantage of Como promotion services, send push notifications to get users’ attention, etc.
The apps are actually universal: Como’s platform creates them in HTML5, a programming language supported by most smartphones.
