Tell us about your biggest achievement in the industry
Our team delivered multiple banking systems, providing a full range of services for individuals and businesses. Also, we developed several applications for the police departments that helped with different form processing and image recognition, including instant drug type recognition. Our biggest achievements are yet to come.
How do you schedule the development phases of the apps to promise the timeline to your clients?
It depends on the types of apps that should be developed. If we’re talking about an AI application, with a clear understanding of what functionality it should possess, we start with the R&D phase and after that move to building algorithms and neural networks. After that we develop and train the neural networks and models in an effort to improve their quality and accuracy. Once the training is done, our team proceeds with performance optimization to provide the best user experience and effective resource utilization.
How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
Again it depends on the client’s request. If the goal is to develop an application that needs to work directly with hardware or we’re expecting heavy loads on the app, or the client wants a good-looking app, we’d go with native platforms such as Swift and Java for Android.
Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you to make this choice?
We typically suggest going with native apps because it allows using much more integration and SDK options available. It also empowers an app to grow faster in App Store and Google Play.
How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Our team utilizes times and material pricing model. With that, we use different rates for engineers in the team and also provide estimates – a preliminary budget to clients so they can have a full overview of the project.
How helpful are the mobile apps developed by your team, for enhancing your clients’ business?
We love to see our applications in use while making not only our clients happy but their customers as well. It is the greatest pleasure.
What according to you are the best practices to attain client satisfaction?
Two things: accountability and clear communication.
How do you update your business system to be in pace with the technological advancements?
It’s not only about new technologies. You should definitely use the latest version of software, frameworks etc, as well as making sure your business obtains the highest level of security. But also you need to understand when a certain update is needed since it only makes sense when it brings real value to your business.
What are your thoughts about AR, VR and Internet of Things (IoT)?
I do believe that AR and VR will be more introduced to gadgets in the future. With IoT, I think it will gain more popularity and will become a part of our everyday life.
What do you think will be the future of Mobile technology?
It will be much easier to develop various types of applications and hopefully, we will have more low-code or no-code solutions that will allow more companies to obtain mobile apps. I believe we will have seamless usage of applications, same as Google was possessing a few years ago with their hybrid model
