Oh, How to Choose? Native Apps vs. Cross-Platform Hybrid Apps!
I attended a conference where my colleagues were arguing over the benefits of hybrid, cross-platform mobile applications vs. true native mobile applications. For my part, I stayed silent and just listened. In my mind, there is no one right answer. The choice really depends on what you want to do and PLAN to do in the future, and on your performance requirements. Like many technology topics, there are way too many factors to consider for a short blog post like this one but a few things do come to mind.
The enterprise is a large manufacturer of CPVC pipes and fittings with factories located across India. The client serves millions of residents and contractors, providing quality plumbing products and services with production facilities across India, supplying plumbing systems, drainage systems, agricultural plumbing products and industrial and electrical conduit pipe products. The client needed an application to track security guards employed at various facilities, and to mitigate ongoing theft issues experienced at these facilities. Every security guard is assigned a specific route and route frequency to ensure that all key security points are covered during the shift.
Elegant MicroWeb designed and developed a BLE-based beacon security monitoring solution with an easy to use interface to configure routes and frequencies for each guard. The beacons register guards passing by and confirm guards positioned and passing by at certain checkpoints and this data is submitted to the central server to produce standard and exception reports for management review. This project resulted in improved security, and productivity, reduced theft, and a seamless checkpoint and guard tracking process.
