Paylocity's Mobile Employee Self-Service is featured in product launch for the new Telerik Platform
It was clear when Todd Anglin, EVP, Cross Platform Tools & Services at Telerik, first introduced KendoUI in 2011, and Telerik quitely hosted a new web site at www.kendoui.com which initially didn't even reference Telerik or their heritage, that this was the genesis of their strategy to expand their target market of developers beyond Microsoft technologies. Of course that made complete sense since developers using other technology stacks should have the same access to the best UI components that up to that time only Microsoft developers could use. Over the past 3 years they have been building out that platform, and extending it by providing AppBuilder as a hosted IDE that bundles in all of the necessary SDKs for mobile development and can debug with an attached device, and hosting back-end services to make it easier for developers to deliver their product to market. Their latest addition to the developer's arsenal of tools is the ability to build native mobile applications which represents the culmination of their long-term goals to create a platform that can be used by any web development platform to create the best product for any purpose on any device whether it be a browser on a desktop, a tablet, a SmartPhone, and any other form factor.
So naturally we were honored when Steve Forte, Telerik's Chief Strategy Officer, saw the Telerik AppBuilder Case Study on Paylocity Mobile ESS and he asked if Paylocity would be part of their Telerik Online Keynote Address on February 12th since we fully appreciate the magnitude of this new product launch and the impact it will have on all web developers regardless of their programming language.
