February 18, 2021 | Sakshi Sharma

The mobile app market is expanding drastically throughout the world. By 2023 mobile apps are expected to generate more than 935 billion dollars, mostly via paid downloads and advertising. More and more businesses are finding out that apps are useful tools to market their business and make more money.

Let’s go through some of the benefits a mobile app can have on your business.

Value to the customer

A customer can always interact with your business irrespective of the time of day. This creates loyalty and helps you retain customers. You can always create an app with a loyalty program to make more customers interact with your business and products even more.

Less waiting time

Mobile apps are quick and can be launched easily. Since there is no waiting time, it is easy to attract customers. If you decide to include a customer service feature in the app it improves customer satisfaction.

Promotion and Accessibility

The ability to communicate both in and out of the workplace makes mobile apps a valuable tool in today’s competitive business world. Developing a mobile app with great deals and offers is a great way to attract a lot of customers. Responding to customer queries and resolving issues will become much easier as well if you have a mobile app to do it.

Visibility of the brand

The awareness of your brand will increase considerably if you build a mobile app. It can be shared on social sites, and as people spend a lot of time on social media, your product and services would have a higher chance of being seen and talked about.

Finding the best mobile app development company

Once you have taken the important decision of developing a mobile app, you need to hire a mobile app developer who can provide value to the product. This is the tricky part, as there are several companies claiming to develop great apps.

There are few basic steps that can help you identify who the best mobile app developers are.

1. Portfolio

Checking the developer’s portfolio will give you valuable information about the organization’s capabilities. It helps to know the years of experience and the different types of apps they have created. You can always check the mobile apps built by the organization to analyze their domain skill and UI/UX expertise. Their work will show their experience and knowledge.

Companies like SDI who have more than two decades of experience developing varied types of mobile apps are the ones you want to focus on.

2. Checking feedbacks and reviews

Premier development companies will readily extend the details of their previous clients. You can get real feedback by checking on them. Asking for some client testimonials is easy and a reputable company will have no problem doing it. Checking social media is another way of getting information.

3. Should be interested in your business

A good company will be interested not only in the development of your app but also in your business. They will be able to give you creative input based on their previous experience. They will be able to guide you on what works and what doesn’t on the app store.

4. Relationship

You should choose an app development company with which you can build a relationship. App development is not a one-time activity. Apps usually go through many evolutions based on user feedback. The developer should stick with you for the entire lifecycle of the product.

For instance, more than 80% of our business orders from existing clients. This shows the bond SDI shares with its clients.

5. Expertise in the operating system

Whatever platform you choose, make sure that your developer is proficient in it, be it iOS or Android. Make sure that they adhere to the best coding practices. A good team will be able to tell you what will work best for your market.

6. Make design a top priority

How an app look is very important. It’s all about the user journey. How will your customers complete each activity within the app? What are your customers looking for specifically? These are things that should be talked about during design. Companies who understand this will be able to create the right design for their brand. Also, choose a company that has both designers and coders, both should go hand in hand.

7. Confidentiality and data security

Always choose a developer who introduces an NDA at the beginning. Never choose one which is hesitant to sign one. NDA’s are essential to prevent the misuse of your idea.

Also, convince yourself of the steps taken by the developer to protect your data. Security measures should be taken during the design stage itself to avoid issues later on. The code should be secure and data properly encrypted among other security practices that should be followed.

8. Costs

Be wary of companies that offer prices that sound too good to be true. They may be overpromising to get your business and will not be able to provide a customized product. The cheapest is not always the best nor is the most expensive one. Professional developers will run you through the various processes involved and go over the cost of developing an app. On average the cost would be around $8,000 to $12,000 to build a custom app but the exact price will be based on the various features the app will have.

Developing a mobile app is a very important investment for your business. Choosing an app development company like SDI will ensure that this pays off immensely. We provide all the information at the beginning so that you are clear and there are no hidden costs later.

We discuss the proposal only after an NDA has signed so you can be confident that your idea is safe. Our coders are the best in the industry and our clients vouch for them. We are obsessed with encryption and data security so you don’t have to worry about it.
