Mobile Enterprise Strategy

“We need an app.”  That’s a statement we hear quite often and are always happy to help.  Before jumping in however, it’s important to understand how mobile applications and supporting devices will fit into your organization’s business strategy and operations.  Some questions that need to be pondered upfront include:

  • Do I really need an app? Can a mobile-friendly site accomplish the same thing?
  • Which platforms / devices should be supported by my app?
  • How will my internal IT team be involved? Will they be able to support it?
  • How will our app integrate with our systems?
  • What are the security considerations for app distribution and usage?
  • Will my employees actually use the app? What’s in it for them?
  • How much should I invest to see a worthwhile ROI?

Our experienced strategists will work with you to answer these (any many other) questions and subsequently develop a Road Map that will guide your organization’s mobile business strategy.

User Experience Design

Designing a solution with the user in mind is critical to the success of any IT solution.  Yet, it’s amazing to see how often the the experience can be forgotten amongst all the other elements of app development.

Creating an experience that is intuitive and delightful is an art form that requires balancing the needs of the user with the the business objectives and technical constraints. Traditional design elements including layout, navigation, colour, typography and imagery must be considered to create a positive user experience. We must also consider, concepts such as navigation, login, offline functionality, device sizes and mobile operating systems. With all of these variables it is important to understand your target market and concentrate on refining the experience on those essential devices.

Our team is staffed with highly talented and creative user experience and user interface experts that are passionate about championing the needs of the people who use our applications.  We’ll use a number of proven research design methods to define the user experience – including focus groups, interviews, surveys, observed behaviour, task analysis, statistics analysis, and scenario/persona exercises.

Mobile Application Engineering

Our engineering team is made up of business analysts, UX/UI design specialists, technical architects, developers, project managers and quality assurance specialists.  When creating an app, team members from each of these disciplines works as an integrated “pod” to create and deliver the solution.

We are focused on building top quality, high-performance mobile solutions. Our technical experts use best practices and are well-versed in the most current mobile technologies, including: Java, Swift, Objective C, Xamarin, React Native Apache Cordova and Adobe PhoneGap.

Our Team has had great success using the Scrum methodology during the development stages of the project.  This approach is supplemented by a collection of our own best practices and experiences to address key elements of a project – including change management, business process re-engineering, training, roll-out and cut-over.

Systems Integration

Developing a mobile solution for an organization’s specific needs almost always includes a requirement to tie into existing sources of information contained in systems such as ERP, CRM, and various point-solutions that keep your business running.

Our integration team is dedicated to solving the complexities of tying systems together so that information can be efficiently and securely accessed, managed and used with your mobile solution.
