Military App

The clear leader when it comes to connecting, engaging and supporting a military community.

Offering competitive subscription costs within the market and, uniquely, including a fully-managed, service delivery model - there is simply no comparison when it comes to value for money.

The centralised investment and "give back" ensures that the Military App is aligned to its members for the long term.


A CRM is a useful tool for managing membership data and basic outbound communications.

It is not a platform to actively connect and support your members.

Some CRMs can be delivered at very low cost (some free) but they are only providing a small piece of the solution that is required.

Community Platform

Generic community platforms can be developed into an engaging and supportive environment, but this takes significant time and resource.

The platforms service many different communities – and, critically, are not designed as bespoke models for the Military.

The costs can be significant, particularly when you consider the increased resource cost to manage the community.
A strategic approach to drive positive, human connection and support across the entire military and veteran community.
Working with Military Units & Associations as well as acting as a strategic connective tissue across the wider veteran & serving community means that the Military App model is scalable and sustainable.

Transforming the way Regiments and Military Units connect and support their entire family.
