BACKMobile Application Development in the UK
Published on Thursday, March 29, 2012 Comment(s): 0
This article is about UK mobile application development and why mobile applications are not a ‘fad’.
Mobile phones used to purely be for talking and the occasional text message. Now mobile phones are all about ‘connectivity’ and applications. What a modern mobile phone can do, is nothing short of remarkable and for businesses, this is an opportunity for engagement.
Let us give you two examples how connectivity can help businesses.
If you sell plumbing parts, you should seek to help plumbers source parts from you, without needing to visit your premises to see if you have a part, else need to phone you within working hours asking if you have a specific part. Instead enable the plumbers to see available parts with a photo at any time or day via mobile! If you are a florist, you should enable customers to order flowers at 10pm that night from a train station via their phone, because they just remembered it is their anniversary tomorrow.
Open new doors with a mobile application.
Mobile applications give businesses whether small, medium or large an opportunity to seek new sales funnels, in a manner that is flexible, as well as helping your business reduce costs, whilst looking to increase margins. Mobile applications are not a fad, and with mobile technology improving year on year, people are looking to mobile phones for more than a telephone call.
How about creating an offline mobile application?
Not all mobile applications need connectivity, to provide a useful function. For example an offline application that can help your technical support teams troubleshoot your software, regardless of whether they have mobile network coverage. Perhaps a bespoke sales calculator to help your sales teams roughly work out budgets on the spot, without requiring additional meetings to provide a quote.Mobile applications can help you speed up processes, without needing network coverage, laptops or carrying around paperwork.
