What you need to know about the mobile revolution and its impacts on your business.
In today’s modern society, mobile is no longer a nice-to-have feature for small and medium businesses. Now, it’s a business imperative. Both consumers and employees expect a mobile experience with nearly everything they do, whether it’s banking, shopping, or checking in at work. With mobile apps becoming increasingly important touchpoints for customers and effective tools for workers, it’s safe to say that we’re in the middle of a mobile revolution. If your business is yet to join the bandwagon, here’s what you need to know.
Select the right app. There’s plenty out there, but where do you begin? First, assess your needs. If you have field workers, an office team, vendors, and more, you’ll want something outside of the realms of a basic app. If you are an enterprise looking to automate your enterprise business process, you need more than just “an app” – you then need an enterprise-strength mobile suite.
Plan into the platform. Mobile apps need to be adaptive based on which device someone is using. While the experience should be consistent throughout each, there should be adaptations for the device the user is operating.
Open the drawbridge. Apps are most useful for professional environments when employees can easily communicate and update data. Consider ditching the read-only approach, and give employees more power to access data and update if necessary.
Move to mobile-first. As the world becomes increasingly mobile, the mobile channel continues to rise in importance for businesses of any size. Moving to a mobile-first platform may seem daunting and entirely unnecessary, but it is becoming a natural progression for businesses who want to better meet the needs of their customers. With a well-planned mobile strategy, business apps can help small businesses grow larger.
