Acision, a global leader in secure, mobile engagement services and an industry innovator in WebRTC technology, Tuesday announced the launch of its first online event - "forgeathon" - a Richer Communications App Challenge intended for developers, students and entrepreneurs worldwide. Acision is partnering with BeMyApp to spotlight how developers can easily integrate the latest and most advanced communication features into new or existing Android, iOS and Web apps using the forge SDK. The challenge will run from 6th of January for six weeks until the 19th February and winners will be announced on the 23rd February, said Acision. Registration for the challenge can be made at

Acision said that using its forge by Acision SDK toolkit, entrants are invited to either create a new Android, iOS or web app or service, or enhance an existing one* by taking advantage of one of the richest, next-generation communication capabilities in the market today.

The competition will see the first prize winner receiving an all expenses paid trip to showcase their app or service in person during the Mobile World Congress 2015 and SXSW Interactive 2015 in March - providing a platform to publicize the app to leading influencers and audiences globally.

Eric Bilange, Head of Rich Engagement Services at Acision
The rich communication capabilities and WebRTC technology offered via the forge SDK, offers seamless, secure, low-latency services that can be used for apps dealing with customer relations, call centres, education, training, healthcare, banking, finance, travel and entertainment. By leveraging Acision's rich communication toolkit, developers can really bring their application ideas to life. Our aim with forgeathon is to spread the word about the possibilities with WebRTC technology, and build a community of developers that continually create WebRTC based apps.
