BBVA Compass to Use Kony’s Platform for Design, Deployment of Several Mobile Banking Apps

ORLANDO, Fla. – March 23, 2015 – Kony, Inc., the leading enterprise mobility company, today announced that BBVA Compass will use Kony’s application development platform to design and deploy some mobile banking applications across several operating systems and platforms.

BBVA Compass, a leading U.S. banking franchise based in the Sunbelt region, chose Kony’s cloud-based application development platform for its integrated set of products and services that spans the full software development lifecycle.
