How We Describe the V Engagement Server

The V Engagement Server is the first enterprise software platform built especially for companies that create and deploy customer engagement apps. These apps are the state of the art way that branding companies like PepsiCo, Kellogg, Unilever, Mars, and Nestle connect with their target markets. In 2014, PepsiCo alone launched more than 200 apps in support of its global marketing campaigns. Should these apps fail to deliver an excellent end-user experience, it upsets users and their negative experiences damage the brands involved. VOTSH saves money and reduces risk. The V Server supports global customer engagement across products, brands, geographies, and languages.

The V Server supports global customer engagement across products, brands, geographies, and languages. Its reusable software modules reduce development cost and deployment risk. It provides unified data collection and storage. And it runs on major cloud platforms. The V Server uses our patent-pending technology to automatically deploy apps across a variety of Web, mobile, and Internet Of Things platforms. The V Server is commercial grade enterprise software that speeds development, increases creativity and saves money, all while reducing risk.

The Vision Behind VOTSH

Frank Cohen, CEO and Founder

Frank Cohen, CEO and Founder

Frank Cohen, veteran Silicon Valley technologist and serial entrepreneur, created VOTSH to improve how customers and brands interact online and at in-person events. Companies are using branded apps, content, contests and other media to connect their brand identities with customers, seeking to create a deep relationship with the brand.

Some companies stand-up hundreds of branded applications for Web, iOS and Android each year, yet each functions by itself and has a lifespan independent of the others. Many engagement campaigns suffer from poor app performance and security, limiting the effectiveness and occasionally damaging brand reputation.

While working to solve security and scalability issues, Frank noticed that engagement apps, such as PepsiCo’s Every2Minutes campaign, which implemented an incredible mini-eBay auction system, often lived and died alone. They were developed for a single run and then torn down, wasting valuable resources and stifling creative reuse and later redeployment.

Frank realized that software could be deployed onto popular cloud services as a development and deployment platform for engagement applications, whether deployed as online apps or for in-person events.

Thus, the V Engagement Server was born, giving developers reusable engagement modules, shared campaign data, security and performance assurance. The V server makes engagement campaigns faster to develop and deploy, less risky, less expensive, easier to reuse globally and more effective.
