Need support for a Mobile App Project? Contact us today at

The MWS group provides campus researchers with a data driven mobile app platform.  This research app platform is called the Zenith App Platform or (ZAP) and has been a Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS) model in the 'AWS' Cloud for several years.  Our entire backend is cloud-based.  We have taken tools we built for research and scaled them out for broader campus use.
