Myron is a bargain shopper at heart, who has never believed that the asking price (of anything) was the final price.

Myron recently completed the Founder Institute startup incubator program and is devoting all of his efforts to growing PriceHub. Myron previously worked at ZipRealty as the VP of Innovation and has also held marketing and business development roles at QuinStreet, IBM and Andersen Consulting. Myron holds a BS from the University of California, Davis and an MBA from the University of Southern California.

Product Desc:

Mobile enterprise apps are supposed to provide employes the needed information at anytime and any place, however todays mobile apps are system centric, that means each mobile app provides information from a single system, may it be an ERP, CRM or any other system. Trying to juggle information between multiple apps on an iPhone is an impossible task and completely defeats the purpose of productivity improvement apps on mobile devices.

Appzen has developed a solution for composite enterprise apps, mobile apps that seamlessly combine transaction capability and information from multiple backend systems like Salesforce.com, Oracle EBS, Microsoft Sharepoint, Box.net and enabled sharing this information through enterprise social networks like Chatter and Yammer. Our solution handles everything from security, authentication, audit, integration and enterprise distribution. We have developed a composite enterprise app for the sales process, and that provides everything that a sales person on a field requires, from marketing material, pricing, product availability, contacts and much more.
