Automated App Production and Release Pipeline

Relution is the easy-to-use and time-saving solution for mobile app lifecycle management for enterprises and small teams. Have an app inventory, control versions of all your apps, manage permissions and create approval workflows. Afterwards distribute your apps through the Enterprise App Store or Mobile Device Management (MDM).

App distribution through your own App Store

Use your own Enterprise App Store so that employees, customers and partners have access to your latest apps at all times and receive update notifications. The familiar app store concept integrates smoothly with the daily workflow. App owners and app store managers control everything via the Relution portal or the Relution apps. Employees use the app store comfortably from within the Relution app (available on Google Play or the Apple App Store). Learn more

Central App Inventory

The administrator easily manages all enterprise apps through a single management console in the browser. All types of apps can be added and managed:

  • - Native Apps for iOS and Android (.ipa, .apk)
  • - Apps from public app stores like Google Play and Apple App Store
  • - Links to internal or external URLs

Permissions and Access

With the right apps for the right people, you can achieve higher productivity and prevent damage from unintended app access. Different versions of an app can be made available to different user groups. The history of each app is automatically documented.

App quality through Staging & Release Management

Each app version has its own status, such as productive, review or development. Additionally Relution contains a customizable, granular app approval process and provides a complete audit trail—all relevant data in one place. The steps, conditions and assignees to final approval can be modified according to your company’s needs. The final Go-Live-Date can be agreed on wihtin the team.

Manage Meta Data

Comprehensive meta information such as descriptive texts, changelogs or screenshots are available for each app. Relution also automatically syncs the metadata of apps from public stores for publicly available apps.

ROI thanks to app management

Since staff won’t lose time looking for an app or its most up-to-date version by asking colleagues, skimming through their email, the company intranet or by troubling the IT department, overall productivity is increased. The cost of integrating Relution in your enterprise will be recouped quickly and a positive return on investment can be achieved.

Save time and reduce stress on support

Make things easier for your help desk and support team by providing FAQ and other support information inside the Relution app. You can do this easily using the administration portal. By indicating, for instance, the solutions to the most frequently asked questions right in the FAQ section of the app, your help desk will be able to concentrate on the more intricate problems and provide stellar customer support!

Crash Reporting

Relution integrates crash reporting features of established players like HockeyApp and Apteligent. As long as the app is managed through Relution all data about app crashes and bugs are collected and displayed in the app section of Relution. Since every crash is listed on the crash reporting page, it becomes easy to scan the issues in order to prioritize them and then rework the app.

Development Hub: on-board developers & vendors

Ensure a consistent app supply through a central point of app development. Different app suppliers, whether internal or external, supply apps and code through different channels. This results in a higher-than-necessary need for coordination and to secure intellectual property. By implementing a central provision of development environments for all developers and app suppliers both can be achieved. With one click you can provide a Git repository in GitLab or AWS CodeCommit and a build job in Nevercode, GitLab CI or Jenkins for your developers. Support for other Git providers and continuous integration tools on request. Contact us!

Fully automated app re-signing without developer tools

The signing process of apps, especially for iOS is error prone and inefficient. With the Relution App Re-Signing Service your IT and app owners can sign or re-sign apps with the correct certificate without giving out the credentials to every developer. The ease with which resigning occurs through Relution greatly reduces the risk of broken apps due to expired licences. You can even fully automate the re-signing process for every new app version uploaded to Relution. Spend your time more effectively by automating signing processes.

Integrate CI, CD, Git and your own tools

Plugins and interfaces for important app development tools are available to ensure optimal integration into the app development process:

  • - The Relution Publisher is a plugin for the Continuous Integration (CI) tool Jenkins and supports automatic uploads to Relution
  • - Nevercode is one of the best continuous integration platforms for mobile pros and publishes apps directly and automatically to Relution
  • - The Relution platform is fully RESTified, which enables every software out there to use every Relution feature available in the Relution portal. Contact us for more information.

Automatic app publishing to MobileIron and AirWatch/Worspace One

Relution enables organizations to fully automate their app production pipeline. In a scenario where you use Relution for your full app lifecycle management and a different Mobile Device Management like MobileIron you can define automatic release steps and go-live dates for apps after which the approved app is automatically deployed to MobileIron including your MobileIron labels.
