Lumavate Expands Platform Capabilities and Secures $3M in Funding

CARMEL, Ind. – June 12, 2019 – Lumavate, the leading platform for delivering Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), announced the introduction of new functionality that will accelerate an enterprise organization’s ability to deliver PWAs at scale.

This new functionality is the latest addition to the Lumavate platform which provides both marketers and developers with the tools they need to rapidly build, test, and deliver PWAs. Marketers can easily build apps start-to-finish using the Lumavate Library while development teams can write their own widgets, microservices, and components in their favorite programming language extending the platform in both function and integration.

The new features include:

  • Launch of Starter Kits to enable users to quickly deliver mobile apps for pre-determined use cases such as events, image recognition, internal communications, product registration and onboarding, and more.
  • Expansion of the Lumavate Library to include additional widgets, microservices, and components that are made available directly within the platform.
  • Streamlined version management through the Command Center that provides the ability to easily manage multiple versions of widgets, microservices, and components across multiple Lumavate Studios.
  • Option to preview across desktop, tablet, and mobile in the Lumavate Studio to ensure the PWA looks great across all devices along with the ability to set your preview preference for each app.

“Enterprise organizations continue to balance the needs of the business with their limited technical resources and desire for digital transformation. Our platform accelerates delivery by making it possible for IT to have control over their cloud-based app architecture while empowering business users with the ability to build and modify apps themselves. The new features in this release continue to accelerate this process for our customers and help drive results for their business even faster,” said Mark Hill, Lumavate’s CEO and Chairman.

In addition to this new functionality, Lumavate also announced a raise of more than $3 million in funding. The round included participation from BioCrossroads, Elevate Ventures, Collina Ventures, and 4G Ventures. This funding will allow Lumavate to continue to expand its product offering and grow its product, sales, and marketing teams.

“We think Lumavate promises to be an important part of our dynamic life sciences ecosystem and our investment portfolio. The proven track record of Lumavate’s leadership team combined with the platform’s applicability to life science and healthcare companies made it an attractive opportunity for our fund,” said Nora Doherty, Interim President of BioCrossroads. “We’re excited about the life sciences and healthcare companies Lumavate is already working with today and the potential it has to drive results for other organizations in these industries.”
