Unilever launches innovative corporate app for investors

01/12/2011 - Unilever unveiled today a breakthrough corporate app for investors, at its annual Investor Relations seminar, in Turkey. The app, developed by The App Business, is the first of its kind to offer investors live access to split-screen live results videos and presentations, interactive share price charts and a customisable investor dashboard.

James Allison, Head of Unilever Investor Relations and Head of M&A, comments: "This app is a great way for investors and analysts to get hold of key information, especially when on the move. It allows us to convey a huge amount of complex data in a very clear and accessible way. And it’s leading the way – this is the first IR app on the market to offer live video streaming."

The multi-touch powered interactive charts allow for detailed share price comparisons and analyses, with an option to capture screen shots and forward on to contacts. The PDF reader is fast, intuitive and packed with essential business features, including offline document viewing and quick sharing of individual pages or entire documents.

"The Unilever app not only offers financial information; it also includes updates on Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan as well as the latest news about the company, giving investors a comprehensive overview of the company’s performance, as we aim to double size of our business whilst reducing our environmental footprint," concludes Allison.

Other features include financial highlights, annual reports and company press releases.
