Do you think mobile app development is confined to Silicon Valley? Think again.
It’s 2019. Mobile devices are a regular part of our lives, with capabilities beyond playing Snake and making phone calls. Smartphones are called “smart” for a reason—the most recent iPhone iterations feature 4GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has up to 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage.
With advances in technology, mobile devices are capable of running real, productivity-boosting applications that are equally as robust as their desktop counterparts are. This rise of mobile productivity is driving the remote workforce in the U.S. According to FlexJobs, 3.9 million U.S. employees worked from home at least half of the time in 2018, which is a 115% increase since 2005. Mobile apps help on-the-go employees stay productive, give in-office employees additional tools to succeed, and support customers with additional tools.
The sky’s the limit with custom mobile apps. Businesses have their own websites and IT infrastructure—custom mobile apps are a logical next step for growing companies. We know that with today’s rapidly expanding market, developing a mobile app strategy can be intimidating. We’re here to help you figure out how your business can benefit from user-friendly, scalable applications.
Give your business the tools to get the job done anytime, anywhere. Not every employee will be tied to a desk all day. In many professions, being tied to a desk doesn’t make sense, especially if employees travel often, spend a lot of time in meetings, or are out in the field. In addition, mobile applications can facilitate more effective employee/customer interaction with document sharing portals and in-app messaging.
Support and Education
How easy is it for your customers to access your business’s resources? What about frequently asked questions? The same questions apply to employees. Can they access educational information about your business while they’re on the go, or are they restricted to paper documentation?
Businesses can improve customer support and employee education by combining tools and resources into an easy-to-access mobile app. An educational app can function as a standalone tool or companion application to help employees and customers with training and resources. In addition, mobile applications are a great tool for remote employees who regularly require access to how-to instructions, training videos, or customer information, without having to spend too much time searching the internet or shuffling though paper documentation.
Information and Research
With the right mobile application, employees can collect and record data in real time. When capturing data at the source, there’s a reduced risk of introducing human error, and you can ensure data collected by employees properly aligns with business requirements. Likewise, mobile applications can take advantage of advanced recording features, like cameras and audio, which enhance the quality of collected data.
Does your business rely on a custom-built legacy software application? A mobile app could be the missing link your business needs to better serve its employees and customers. Oftentimes, custom software solutions need a few tweaks during their lifetime to stay relevant. Modernizing existing custom-built software application to support mobile tools or converting legacy systems to mobile apps can help your business make the transition to a modern technology solution.
