How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
One of the biggest determining factors when it comes to selecting mobile platform is app’s target audience.
First of all, we do research. We try to find what platform is mostly used in a given region where our client’s app will be distributed.
We help our clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for the app development after determining the client’s following requirements,
Who are the Targeted Audiences for their app?
What Return on Investment clients are expecting from the app?
Which level of Privacy they are expecting for the app?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 want to make scalable, quick-to-market products and when we need to choose between native or hybrid app development, native app development is our priority. Native apps show outstanding performance as they are built with platform specific approaches. Apps that maintain a large amount of functionality or process a lot of information (games, social networks, geo-location services, photos exchange services, etc.) should be and must be native.How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Generally we offer three basic price models:
After receiving a request from the client, we start finding out the details, in case there is no option to extract the scope of work and write down detailed functional and technical requirements. We assign developers to a project and charge clients a set price per hour of work.
This model is useful when clients sign a contract. We fix a team, let’s say 5 people, and there is a set price for their full-time workload.
The third “fixed price” model is built upon estimation. To define the total development cost, we write project requirements and create UX/UI design which helps us figure out the amount of hours needed to implement all features. According to this estimation, we tell our clients how much the development will cost. Any change in the requests assigned to the team by the client or improvements estimated by the team and approved by the client will require additional charge.How helpful are the mobile apps developed by your team, for enhancing your clients’ business?
Mobile apps that are developed by our team help our clients to enhance their business and stand out from the competition and build a brand and recognition. The apps also create a direct marketing channel and it is visible to our client’s customers at all times. So, the apps developed by our team have really enhanced our client’s business.What according to you are the best practices to attain client satisfaction?
I think the best way to attain client satisfaction is to understand what each client wants and translate it into a feasible solution. Clients praise us for our good communication skills, quick delivery, and being flexible to changes.How do you update your business system to be in pace with the technological advancements?
We regularly conduct hackathons and meet-ups within the company and outside of it. From time to time, we gather our team leads to discuss new technologies and updates and how important they are for our company. We then choose those things we are going to implement. After that, the team leads hold meet-ups and share their practical knowledge and use cases with their departments regarding the innovations in our company.What are your thoughts about AR, VR and Internet of Things (IoT)?
As far as app development, I think AR and VR will go beyond entertainment and gaming. Both AR and VR possess huge potential when it comes to transforming a diverse range of industry sectors such as travel, medicine, real estate and more.
The number of things connected to the Internet already exceeds our population. IoT has the potential to encompass and instrument an enormous range of connected devices—including home appliances and utilities, wearables, homes and corporate buildings, industrial processes, medical devices, law-enforcement devices, military equipment, and other connected applications that today might be barely imaginable.
What do you think will be the future of Mobile technology?
Developers and app owners will build apps with greater security in mind as more industries go mobile and require high data protection standards. Apps will become more intelligent than now and interactive with the help of machine learning and AI. Building apps for wearable will be main stream in the future, too.
Since the world is going mobile, governments will employ strict regulations for mobile apps to ensure user privacy and rights.
