The Need for Speed: 5 Ways to Get Mobile Apps in the Workplace Faster
Oct 26, 2016
Rapid mobile app development (RMAD) has recently come to the forefront of the enterprise IT world. Whether you have technicians, inspectors, consultants or sales reps in the field, empowering your mobile workforce can completely transform your business into a highly-productive, efficient and well-oiled machine.
But with little time and limited company resources, it's challenging to find a mobile solution you trust that's powerful and flexible enough to get you up and running quickly. You need to build enterprise mobile apps now, and you need to implement them fast.
To help you speed up the development cycle and get mobile apps in place faster, here's a list of 5 features to look for:
1. Point-and-click app building
Save time and quickly build forms and workflows by easily choosing from a list of programmed fields. These can include audio recording, digital signature capture, GPS tagging, photos, and more. You can even discover new ways to further enhance data capture and improve your field-based business processes.
2. Cross-platform app updates
With choices of devices and the growing popularity of bring your own device (BYOD) in the mobile workforce, employees are using smartphones they are well-accustomed to. A mobile solution that delivers no code app updates across different platforms enables quick adoption by users and drives employee engagement.
3. Instant, one-click publishing
Avoid delays and publish mobile forms directly to your mobile devices as soon as they're required in the field. This instant approach is not only helpful for new apps during the initial development stage, but crucial for ongoing management when business processes change and app updates are urgent.
4. Deep links integration
Look for a solution that supports deep links for code-free integration between third-party apps already in use by your organization. This means teams in the field can easily switch between the apps needed to efficiently perform related tasks at hand.
5. Cloud deployment options
Some situations require on-premises deployment, but multi-tenant and private cloud deployments are faster options. They both offer quick, cost-effective set-ups and don't require you to install software or involve the IT department. All business data is stored in a secure, central database and regularly backed up for safekeeping.
