This is part 2 of the article, Do Small Businesses Need Custom App Development? You can read it here.
The first section of this blog post discussed how running a small business doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you take advantage of the latest technology trends you can find simple and cost-effective ways to operate your company and stay ahead of the competition. Below are some additional challenges and solutions we work with on a regular basis…
Document storage isn’t the only major headache for those who work in very specialized industries. For instance, financial companies also have stringent reporting requirements and confidentiality guidelines they have to follow.
When we work with these types of companies, we develop custom software that meets these challenges and presents them with all-in-one solutions. That way they can meet their needs for security and oversight, and do so without having to learn or maintain several different apps.
Advanced E-commerce Tools
Do you sell products or services online? If so then you already know how difficult it can be to find apps that tie together inventory, marketing, and fulfillment. Add in the tools you might need for your specific business (like a real-time currency converter or shipping tracker) and just managing your software can become overwhelming.
We know that our e-commerce clients need to keep their focus on other areas, which is why we develop inclusive apps that combine all these different features into a single affordable solution. That lets a retailer keep growing without spending more than they should on software.
Employee Scheduling and Training
Even in our digital age, managing employees is often the hardest part of running any business. However, that challenge can get a lot easier when you have the right tools for the job.
With custom software that is designed specifically for your company, you can manage things like schedules, payrolls, and even training modules, or benefits. And, with web-enabled apps, you and your team can manage the details from anywhere. That’s a great way to save time and money while keeping your employees on track and working productively.
Custom Mobile Apps
There are literally hundreds of ways a small business might make good use of custom mobile apps. They can enhance communication, offer a dedicated customer interface, or even just plug into the kinds of software we have already outlined.
Business owners are often surprised at how easy and affordable it is to develop a custom mobile app that works on a number of devices and platforms. You probably can’t spend your day fixed to one spot, so why should your software?
Custom Programming Starts With Your Needs
It’s possible that you see one or more possibilities for your small business on the short list of uses for custom software development we have outlined here. Or, it might be that what you really need to help your business move forward is something altogether different. Either way, what’s important to know about our work is that it’s driven by your goals and challenges. Everything we do starts with the discovery process that focuses on what you’re facing and the specific outcomes you hope to achieve.
