The decades long journey in integrating legacy applications and systems on mainframes and minis paved the road for some challenging projects on hand-held terminals and early smartphones like Nokia Communicator, Compaq Hand-held devices testing our resilience and ingenuity while giving us the choice to stay relevant or stay in our comfort zone. We chose the former that led us to create Solutions 4 Mobility, S4M. The idea of being part of this rapid transformation fueled by digital technology & mobile apps making the lives of consumers easy and efficient, excited our young and energetic team, kick-started with some award winning apps, which set a new precedence.
S4M was founded in 2011 while still being known to many as Farabi Technology Middle East. Since we had the good fortune of serving some large strategic clients in the Banking, Automotive & Governments on the EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) and BPI (Business Process Integration) services for more than 20 years, excellent trust levels and goodwill were established. Some of the earliest mobile apps earned our team & our clients’ awards & recognition fuelling our motivation to a different level.

Our creative UI designs have been optimized for viewing on devices with touch screens and smartphones. Keeping in mind that there are a large number of devices with different screen sizes and resolution from Smartphones to Tablets, we make sure that every application is tailored to each individual handset. We maintain a consistent and authentic brand presence, and through creative implementation of ideas, content and concepts from existing advertising materials across our solutions comes alive in a clear and targeted manner, by working always under strict compliance with the corporate design specifications.

We craft beautiful and engaging designs, matched only by the innovative and intuitive user interfaces that those designs are based on.
As Farabi Technology we pioneered the integration business by integrating Microsoft-based business solutions and unlocking IBM legacy assets for the Web and Windows platform. We spent decades in the integration of such enterprise legacy systems & applications for Banks, Governments & Automotive to expose their services to be consumed on the web. We led the EAI and BPI projects by creating our own IP, which eventually got acquired by a blue chip IT organization.
Farabi’s proven expertise & know-how in legacy integration and impressive accomplishments in high-transaction environments continued with S4M’s creation and became a bedrock in all our Mobility and Digitalization projects. Every successful mobility or digitalization project has to have a secure & solid integration layer to expose the back-end services, which S4M has become synonymous with.
Design According to Guidelines UI/UX
In our applications we know exactly how to draw the user journey between NUI (Natural User interface) and GUI (Graphical User interface), and the power of implementing each interface to enrich the experience of the users. So, you will be controlling everything on your Smartphone or tablet with a tap, a click, or a pinch with your fingers, beside the GUI, which includes designing Gestural Interfaces, interactive visual composition, buttons, and dynamic visual representations like 2D or 3D animations. For the process that helps us deliver the most relevant information at the right time, through well-engineered workflows and appealing graphics, we ensure that the design makes the user experience as convenient, as logical, and as intuitive as possible.
Motions Graphics Video
If a picture says thousand words, then how many words should a video say? One of the most fundamental ways to increase the download volume of any mobile application is to offer your prospective customers the means to see it in action. Motion graphics is a niche specialty of our designers, extending beyond the most commonly used methods of frame-by-frame footage and animation. S4M’s talented team can create high quality motion graphic videos for your mobile applications to highlight your product’s most exceptional or attractive features, uses, and functionality. Simultaneously, our team will draft an appealing script, integrate professional quality narration, and deliver the outcome of the video to you in high definition format specifications.
