Founded in 2009, BestFit began revolutionizing mobile strategies for some of the world’s largest retail businesses and enterprises. A little over a year later, BestFit began research and development with what is today one of the hottest buzzwords in Location Based Services news: Low Energy Bluetooth (BLE) technology. BestFit’s approach involves a comprehensive evaluation of existing infrastructure, commerce tools, customer loyalty programs, advertising programs, social strategies and customer demographics. We then create a platform to combine these into a single, interactive channel powering connections between businesses and mobile users.  In retail, these connections improve brand loyalty, increase customer spending, lower the cost of acquiring new customers and differentiate our clients from their competitors. In business, they improve employee satisfaction, productivity, and efficiency to levels that produce enormous reductions in cost and create new opportunities for rapid growth and profitability.  When you are looking for Android, iPad and iPhone app developers, or to amplify the functionality of an existing app with BLE for use with iBeacon, choose a partner with world class experience and proven ability to deliver success.


Starting in the late 1970s, the Austin Opry House, later known as the Austin Opera Hall, and Arlyn Studios served as the venue and recording studios for some of the most prolific and abundantly creative musicians who defined a generation. Until the early 90′s, artists including the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, U2, REM, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Stevie Ray Vaughan and scores of others helped to create indelible memories for their adoring fans, right here on our property. Now that is pretty cool.

Home to Creativity for 40 Years

Even though the walls today hold white boards in place of the ring of a Stratocaster, the creativity still pumps through the entire place. The vibe once tapped into by so many of the greatest musicians of all time is now channeled through our mobile app strategists, developers and marketers. Tap our creative well and let us develop your mobile strategy today.


BestFit Mobile houses the most talented group of mobile strategists, user interface & experience designers, iOS developers, Android developers, QA experts and project managers to help your mobile strategy to succeed.  Our mobile development teams are made up of unique, talented folks of all disciplines who deliver exceptional results for our clients.

Harness the power of Low Energy Bluetooth for use withiBeacon to combat showrooming, and captivate your audience with personalized rewards. 


What We Can Do






Bluetooth Smart technology  is primed to overcome NFC: More devices on the market today have Bluetooth 4.0 capability than they do NFC chips.   


Mobile App Development Process


Phase One: Blueprint

We start with a blueprint. This is where we lay it all out. We look at your audience, your needs, your budget and what  you hope to accomplish with your finished product. This is the foundation, where we dream big and then hone in on the vision you have for your product. We want to develop something that is beyond what you thought was possible and this is where it all starts.


Phase Two: Strategy

The second thing we do is come up with a game plan. We have our vision and our groundwork laid out. Now we have to come up with a strategy to make your vision for your product a reality. There is where we build a team that will make it happen and build a timeline to make sure it happens by the targeted date and figure out what it will take to make your product the best it can be.  

Phase Three: Development

Now that we know what we need to accomplish, we move on to the development phase and our team hits the ground running. We start building the wireframes so you can see the layout and get a feel of the flow and how it will work, we skin it and make sure it’s not just working how you like it to, but it looks good too with a solid design behind it and then we bring the two together and make your product functional.


Phase Four: Testing/QA

Now it’s play time. You get a build of your product and start actually working with it, making sure it looks and feels right. At this stage our team looks closely for bugs, errors and those typos that manage to slip in and make sure you got a solid product that at a place where you are happy and we are happy with a product ready for launch.


Phase Five: Release

Last is the release. We pull it all together and prepare it for the approval process. Once the build is sent off, it’s just a matter of waiting for it to be approved for whatever online marketplace or store your product will be available in. Then it’s time to get reactions from your employees or consumers that will be using your product and keep dreaming about what you can do to make it even better.


BestFit's ProxDK Solution makes BLE a highly effective marketing tool, right now. 205 million iOS devices already in the hands of your customers have the capacity to be configured to become an iBeacon receiver or transmitter.
