Mobile apps aren’t just for the consumer market and there’s powerful reasons why this is true:
- Smartphones are in the pockets of your customers and employees.
- Improved mobile data coupled with WiFi means that it’s possible to be almost always connected.
- Business apps can be tools to access key areas of your business.
- Convenience is king in the modern word, making it easier to do something means that your customers will interact with your business more and your employees can be more productive—it’s only one tap away.
When apps were first introduced, mobile data connectivity was poor and connection speeds were slow. The majority of apps were offline only, a single download and then you accessed the features that they were downloaded with. Today, most apps have some form of connectivity, in the consumer space this can be connections with social media and sharing content but for business this can be a very powerful tool.
For logistic apps this means that deliveries can be tracked using GPS in real-time from depot-to-door with key stages marked with a single tap to indicate each step in the delivery process.
“There should be no such thing as a complicated app, their purpose is to be lightweight, intuitive and require no training whatsoever. In the consumer space poorly designed apps don’t succeed, in business we need to ensure that we stick to the same principles on behalf of our clients.”—MJM
What can we do
We have the ability to develop pretty much anything you can dream up. We use Xamarin (a Microsoft Tool) to deliver both iOS and Android phone and tablet apps and deploy them simultaneously at the end of a development cycle thanks to its cross-platform capabilities. We can also deliver Microsoft Windows 10 apps for phone and desktop if required.
We have experience in the consumer space delivering productivity tools and an internet radio streaming app. However, our focus is on working with businesses to deliver powerful solutions that enhance their business productivity and client interaction. Examples include:
- Employee and customer engagement apps that feature corporate directories, news articles, blogs, image banks, technical papers events.
- Learning and assessment apps with applied game theory to make learning incentivised and fun.
- Operations apps for engineers in the field who need to send and receive information in near real-time to the back-office team.
- Customer care apps to enable clients to place orders, report issues and track the status of orders and issues.
