Companies like Palam Solutions now offer a new generation of mobile application development. Based on the experience of several mobile application developments for certain industries, such as insurance companies, retailers or utilities, these companies offer “off-the-shelf” solutions that meet the high standards and meet the necessary functionalities according to specific industry standards for specific workflows.
The benefits of such solutions are accessible:
- minimizing the risks to decision-makers in the enterprise, and
- the mobile solution is much faster to deploy.
They are easy to integrate into existing back-ends and can be customized. These new Enterprise Mobility Toolkit solutions are also easy to use, which is reflected in an application-friendly user interface.
6 Reasons for “Ready-to-Use” Enterprise Mobility Solutions
1. The development time is dramatically reduced –
Instead of the average 18-week development time for a mobile app, the implementation of a configurable, ready-to-use app is possible within two days.
2. The cost is significantly lower –
The mobilization budget is usually set at 250,000-500,000 US dollars. “Ready-to-use” solutions are significantly more cost-effective.
3. Later entry of developers or system administrators –
Developers or system integrators only enter the development cycle at a later stage and are supported by a professional partner.
4. Eliminate cost-intensive coding, design and testing –
Developers can focus on how to determine what processes are to be mobilized and how users should use them. Cost-intensive coding, expensive design work and tests are no longer required.
5. Individual adjustment –
You select these functions, which are relevant to your customer, based on industry standards. Further adjustment is also possible, e.g. the connection to back-ends.
6. Focus on User experience –
Mobile “off-the-shelf” solutions focus on the user experience as they have been developed with a longer-term and broader approach. The positive user experience is again a critical factor for the success of an enterprise mobility app.
5 Rules for Implementing Enterprise Mobility Apps
#1: The main note must be placed on the user of the app.
Practical usability, consistency, and legibility determine their success or failure.
#2: Drive the Mobile First Approach
The mobile workflow differs significantly from the workflow on the desktop in all sectors, which must also be reflected in the mobile application.
#3: Prefer native web-based mobile apps
Due to their extensive graphical functions and easy integration, these provide the better utilization experience.
#4: Measure the success of a mobile B2E application using performance characteristics.
KPIs help measure the efficiency of an app and point out possible difficulties. Here, for example, the transaction rate is: How many transactions were made by the user via an app? If, for example, the user increases earlier, this indicates a deficit in user friendliness.
#5: Allow the user interface to be the core value of an Enterprise Mobility application.
It decides on the quality of the implementation of mobile workflows and contributes significantly to the success of the mobile solution. Not for nothing does the user interface require 40 percent of the total development effort, as well as 47-66 percent of the total code. On the other hand, IT decision-makers still tend to evaluate compatibility with business processes or back-end security when it comes to the implementation of mobile business processes.
