Mobile Apps and Software Development

Mobile apps are programs designed to operate on a mobile device like a smartphone, tablet or watch. Software development is the process of (1) conceiving, (2) specifying (3) designing, (4) programming, (5) documenting, (6) testing, and (7) bug fixing necessary in creating and maintaining applications and other software. Mobile applications are in contrast to desktop applications which operate on a desktop computer or with web applications which operate in mobile web browsers instead of directly on a mobile device. The term “app” is short for “software application”. For 1CS, mobile apps and software development go hand in hand because it takes software development to create mobile apps. Due to the support involved, we recommend this services as part of managed services package. 
 

Benefits of Mobile Apps and Software Development

Many organizations are choosing to have their own mobile app or proprietary software program. The app or software program is designed to carry out a specific set of functions. A function could be processing information such as customer or payment information. Traditionally paper was the form of business information. The employee or contractor would fill out customer and payment information on 3 colour carbon copy paper so that all parties could have their own copy. This system works but apps or programs make the process quicker, more efficient and often come with a cost savings. Staff may receive or access app information immediately and there is less duplication when it comes to entering and managing business information. Thus there is no delay of business information.
