Updated on April 27, 2022

Design and build model-based mobile solutions that exceed the scope and functionality of browser-based enterprise applications, function on a range of mobile devices, and meet all your business needs.

Whether you are a professional or a citizen developer, you can take advantage of the Pega Platform low-code environment to develop robust, secure, and customized mobile apps with modern user interfaces, and then distribute these apps to your users. The low-code model empowers all participants in your business process to have an active role in taking your content mobile, which ultimately frees up development resources.

Every Pega application as a mobile app

With a top-class, powerful model that leverages case management, Pega Mobile puts an emphasis on handling and getting the work done, anywhere and anytime. Take your existing Pega application and seamlessly bring your Microjourneys to mobile devices without additional development work or disruptions to the user experience.

Depending on your business needs, you can deploy a Pega application as a stand-alone mobile app, embed the application into existing apps or websites, or access the application from a mobile browser.

Low-code mobile authoring experience

The out-of-the-box mobile channel enables you to quickly deploy your application to mobile devices. The mobile channel embodies the low-code approach and rapid mobile app development by ensuring that you can configure and customize the content of the app directly in the model and without coding. Simply leverage your existing cases to effectively design vital user experience components, such as navigation or search, and efficiently tailor the styling of your app to match your company's guidelines. When you are ready to take your content to users, you can build your app in one click or use the Pega Mobile Preview app to examine the outcome.

Native app experience

Stay in the model and let Pega Platform do all the heavy lifting to enable you to focus on what work you want to get done on mobile devices. You never have to worry about operating system dependencies or complicated update procedures. Pega uses a cloud service to build responsive apps that leverage device capabilities, native transitions, and mobile features, such as push notifications or barcode scanning. The mobile client exemplifies a hybrid approach that guarantees security and flexibility to provide the outcome and experience that your users deserve.

Offline support

Pega Mobile supports the way mobile users work by ensuring that they can access their content at all times, regardless of network connection status. With an app that works with limited or no connectivity, you maintain work continuity for field employees and extend the use of your application. As a citizen developer, you can quickly configure offline support for your application in the low-code model of the mobile channel.
