Android, iPhone, Blackberry application are ubiquitous in the marketing mix. In developing countries and rural areas it can be the only means of Internet communication. OXIL can develop mobile applications and connect them to your core internet services, therefore, the same information that is available on your website can be published to a mobile phone.  At OXIL, we support the paradigm of ‘write once, use many’. That means that you, the service provider or retailer, can create a single article, product listing, news item, advertising campaign, and the same content will then automatically appear on any number of channels: your website; your RSS feed; on an e-bulletin; your social media sites; and any number of mobile applications.

Great value and fair licensing

OXIL offers competitive pricing and discounts on Enterprise support and Rolling development contracts. We are happy to negotiate Royalty Free Licensing terms for you to use your software without necessarily purchasing our Support, ie. no "software lock-in".  OXIL makes every effort to save you money, not to reinvent the wheel, and to advise you if we believe there are better competitive products available on the market. Our objective is to concentrate your resources on the unique elements of your business system or workflow. We are big fans of Google Apps web services for things like: calendars, email, contact sharing, and Xero for online finances and accounts management. We have the skills to utilize Google, Xero, and other public APIs (such as Facebook), to link your software with other applications and centralise your workflow. We also have a large stock of pre-written software components (libraries), robust pre-tested building blocks that are working hard in other mission-critical systems. To save you time and development costs we typically offer to use these software components as the basis for your software development project and then offer them to you on a Perpetual Royalty Free basis. Thereby, reducing your upfront development costs and improving stability.
