Advantages of custom softwareEven if you never really thought about getting a custom software yet, our company has a few reasons for you to do so. Trust our experience — any company can benefit from masterfully crafted application, whether it be a custom cashier system or a payment scheme. There are many more other benefits of bespoke software solutions that are not so obvious.
Integration with your data and other services
One of the most popular reasons why our clients ask for a custom software development is that they want all their information to be in one large ecosystem (or a cloud, or a server), from where all this data can be reached easily. This is indeed very convenient — your workers can edit documents or create reports remotely or participate in company’s life even when they’re on vacation or cannot be at the office.
At the same time, you get the complete and thorough analysis of every aspect of your company’s workflow. Control over every task and manager may seem a bit ominous, but in the end, it increases the productivity of your staff excessively.
Unique featuresLet’s presume that you own a delivery company that has around 1000 trucks. You may not be the leader in this industry, but you still get good profit from this business. But will “from-the-box” software cover your needs? Highly unlikely. Maybe you need tools to calculate a useful space in containers or a tracking system that will redirect your carriers according to the traffic? We don’t know yet what you might need, but as soon as you tell us what company you own and what are the main problems you encounter, our team will surely come up with a solution.
Aside from rare functions that you may require, our software development company can provide improvements in any area of your firm’s life, such as accounting, archiving and task management. If you need any specific requirement for any business process that you find troubling to perform, just tell us — our agency is made to ease your life!
Types of appsThe user-oriented software divides into two large groups: mobile and desktop. And if everything is somewhat clear with desktop, the world of mobile programs turns out to be terra incognita for most of the people. To cut out all the misunderstandings, our team has prepared a little guide through the types and kinds of non-desktop applications.
Native appsThis type of mobile software belongs to one and only platform (operating system), such as the iOS, Android or Windows 10 Mobile. In case we’re talking about iOS, native apps are designed for a determined pack of devices, such as iPhone or iPad, which provides developers access to the power of these devices and gives the restrictions to the whole development process. But when we talk about Android operating system, it’s evident that this may backfire at some applications. Just imagine millions and millions of smartphones run by the same OS, but having the completely different hardware. Eventually, this will cause a conflict between the machine and software, where first won’t be able to provide enough resources to the second. On the other hand, Android offers a larger amount of potential users since it is installed on around 85% of devices in the world.
Hybrid appsAvailable at several platforms at the same time, these programs can provide users with the same experience on different devices. But you should always remember that they are much more expensive and resource-demanding. They’re also often unstable due to their cross-platform nature. But if ubiquity is paramount for your business, you can also think about the development of two different programs for different operating systems.
Web applicationsMost of the websites today are considered to be web applications that communicate with user and server simultaneously rather than just display information from a server. This type of apps is universal but sometimes impossible to display at mobile devices. Keeping this in mind, you should meticulously think of your plans. Do you want your app to be portable? Go for the mobile apps! Aiming for internet users? Web applications would be a better idea!
