How can we employ custom mobile development to improve client experience, productivity and business results?
Australia’s companies are under pressure to work faster, smarter and more efficient. Accessing core data securely from mobile devices is key to reach those goals. Mobile solutions that enable business units and employees to perform and compete more effectively are equally important. For “strategically important,” mission critical opportunities and applications with unique requirements,custom mobile solutions offer significant advantages for companies.
Often the most complex requirement in deploying mobile cloud solutions for companies is integrating with back-end systems and databases. Naturally, custom mobile solutions can be tightly coupled with enterprise systems while off-the-shelf apps may require either middle ware or custom installations to make them work. Companies developing applications that require tight integration with back-end systems will generally find that custom mobile solutions are best fit.

Companies and personal mobile devices for work-related purposes
Interestingly, in many cases employees are taking it upon themselves to find, download and use mobile apps for work-related purposes, often on their own personal mobile devices. A risky approach and should be controlled by a mobile device management software which allows distribution of applications, data and configuration settings. However, mobile solutions are too important for companies to rely on a fragmented, ad hoc process and hope for the best. Relying on a systematic process, leading companies are identifying and building custom mobile solutions and gaining competitive advantage and positioning.

Most companies are not aware of that company data may is hosted in a none compliant environment being at risk.

Agile flexible development to the heart of mobile development
Building mobile solutions involves Concept – Design – Develop – Deploy – Support and a mobile development partner should have perspectives on mobile strategy, suggesting creative solutions and alternative approaches. Accurately projecting cost, timing, ROI and other implications of options for custom mobile solutions. For mobile application development, teams like agile software development, which offers tremendous opportunities and value to build applications in short cycles.
The major advantage of this method is that developers are able to respond to changes in requirements as they arise. Clients have the opportunity to request modifications even at the later stages of development, which is very important to meet the market challenges and enjoy a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Design at the heart of mobile development
Design at the heart of mobile development, from feature to functionality and look and feel visible to users. Good designs allow users to accomplish tasks from screen to screen with ease and efficiently. Flaws in design can be damaging, resulting in solutions that are not practical, difficult to use and abandoned by users. The quality of design often determines whether users are satisfied with mobile solutions or frustrated to use. A great design removes barriers to could give clients a truly helpful experience. As with mobile websites, mobile apps design help users complete their tasks and make it easy to navigate.
Accessing back-end databases and applications
Unfortunately, mobile integration is no easy task. The ever-present urge to add new functionality to existing software packages has caused some software spillover in business applications. In order to support common business processes and mobile data sharing across applications, these applications need to be integrated. In some cases, mobile solutions involve users accessing multiple applications running on multiple platforms in different locations.
Helping clients design and implement integration solutions, we repeatedly came across that business users have to access more than one system to answer a specific question or to perform a single business function. Integration can become a challenge when exchanging highly sensitive data. Poor software implementation means not compliant and can render the most secure solutions vulnerable. Our dedicated team works hand in hand with clients and their requirements for delivering best solutions in a collaborative style.
Deploying Cloud-Based Custom Mobile Development Solutions
Once a solution is ready for release, proper training, and technical support is paramount. The goal is to ensure that the solution gets adopted and fully utilised with minimal disruption to business, end-users and clients. It is critical to monitor performance on key metrics and confirm users’ experience matches expectations.
