Logic Solutions triples mobile app workforce and is still looking to hire

By Ben Freed

Ann Arbor technology services company Logic Solutions has expanded their mobile app department from six to 25 employees and expect to add up to 10 more employees before the end of 2012.

Logic Solutions, headquartered on Plymouth Road in Ann Arbor, is part of a growing trend of technology companies that are focusing more and more attention on mobile applications.

Director of marketing Angela Kujava said that’s because a lot of companies have become more app savvy.

“A year ago it was still a lot of educating people as to why even having a mobile presence was important,” she said.

“Now, that’s gone away almost completely. We no longer have to educate and they’re coming to us with more concrete ideas. At first what we heard in requests was ‘I’ve got a great idea,’ or ‘we want an app,’ but they don’t know what they wanted the app to do. Now they know what they want and how they want it to function.”

While Logic Solutions primarily focuses on apps that are used internally by companies, they have also developed consumer apps. The android development of Omaha Steaks' "Steak Time" app was done by the company because the first company hired by the steak company only developed apps for iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.

“We have worked on a wide array of app functionality, but our specialty is creating B2B apps and apps that are used internally by companies—ones that require sophisticated integration with existing backend systems,” Bruce Richardson, president of Logic Solutions, said in a press release.

“We have built our reputation programming complex systems. Developing apps to interact with them is a natural extension of our domain expertise.”

Positions hired by the company to expand there mobile operations have included programmers, graphic designers, user interface experts, and QA engineers.

Logic also created its own app in 2011, designed to help companies execute sales across mobile platforms. The app, Showcase, is a template companies can use to manage a catalogue, inventory, and order entries among other functions.
