So You Want to Build a Mobile App? Have You Considered All the Success Factors?
Moving to a mobile app is not just a matter of making sure that information can be accessed on a smart phone. When your company decides to build a mobile app, it must acknowledge that launching this app will be a game changer!
Let’s say, for example, that your company is a regional business offering truck repair services to large cross-country freight haulers. Your senior management team decides that it would be great to undertake mobile app development and launch a mobile app for its customer base. The idea is simple! Truck drivers would load the app on their smart phone or tablet and, if they need to schedule a repair on the road, or if they need to contact you to arrange for a tow, they can do so through the app. That service will give you a competitive advantage and allow truck drivers to log in with a user ID that authorizes them to access services, make appointments and charge repairs all without calling or sending an email and waiting for an answer.
Your traditional business model has now been turned upside down. This will definitely change your competitive advantage, and your customer outreach. But, it also means you will need a different mix of enterprise systems, you will need to scale to accommodate additional users who will access the system, look at calendars an locations, make choices, perhaps need online assistance while they navigate the app, AND they will need a simplified interface that will not require training!
Your in-house IT staff may very well need assistance because they probably don’t have the domain or technology knowledge of a mobile app designer or a mobile application developer. When you engage the services of a mobile app development company, you get the cutting-edge skills, knowledge of the domain and a cross platform mobile application developer who can assess the requirements. Experts can ensure that your mobile app, and the supporting infrastructure can satisfy the needs of the new model and is equipped to provide support for growth and application and user management.
