Cubic, Inc. is offering chambers (and other membership driven organizations) the opportunity to use their latest technology tool called FireApp™ Mobile Connect – an iPhone App specifically built for membership-based organizations.
Why an iPhone app for a chamber?
The iPhone has changed the way people do business. Chambers must stay ahead of the curve if they want to retain members and quickly grow their membership base. We have estimated one new chamber a week will soon be launching an iPhone app to help stay competitive. It’s not a matter of deciding why, it’s a matter of when.
