CHIL.APP allows for the generation of mobile applications for IOS and Android with strong interactive features and Mobile Enterprise 3.0 features. On the server side, it relies on the CHIL platform, already widespread and proven. The solution is both a product (applications) and a PaaS service (the platform). The system is based on a UPM software registration that has been licensed to a spin-off.

More than 10 applications have been sold until December 2016 to clients such as MAGRAMA, Spanish Ministry of Economy, agri-food cooperatives, trade unions, etc. For 2017 a great expansion of sales and projection is foreseen.
