Having dedicated apps is probably something that many organizations definitely need to think about. They could have special, customized apps that suit their operations that can be used by employees and clients to communicate and coordinate their works. Immediately after they are developed, employees and customers should find it easy to use the app. Increases in work load are bound to happen, so it is important for companies to create tools that can help them improve productivity. If we are planning to create an app for our business or organization, here are things we should consider:
- Keep It Simple: First of all, we start with something simple and easy. We should be able to find dozens of tasks in our companies that can become more efficient with the help of dedicated apps. We could begin with a couple of straightforward apps that allow us to work and deal with day-to-day responsibilities. After we have the opportunity to learn more about them, we could create improved versions of these apps that can integrate with one another. This will eventually modularize our mobile apps infrastructure and it would be very easy to find glitches and bugs associated with specific functionality. Many companies simply construct a gigantic, monolith of mobile apps that are excessively complex and very difficult to fix and expand.
- Create easy to use interface: One of our main goals should be to design apps with ease of use as the primary characteristic. Some developers may create apps that are very difficult for others to comprehend. This would cause consumers to feel reluctant to try them. As a result, they are unable to access specific information in our catalogue and this would result in much reduced sales. Consequently, we should try to make things much simpler and we shouldn’t be concerned about any expensive customizations. Things could become a real waste of money if we can’t sympathize with future users.
- Personalize the experience: Each individual is very unique and we can’t expect to make an app that will fit others’ requirements. So, we should be able to add things that can be personalized by users. We can start by adding the personalization menu in the app and this simple step would provide employees and consumers with much more satisfying experience. The app should also be able to remember unique user configurations that can help them save time. Eventually more and more employees will show their interest with the app and this could enhance the overall productivity within the company. Overall, personalization is an effective way to make people more comfortable with something and we have seen evidences of that with many social media websites adding their special customizations areas and features in their platforms.
- Assign beta testers: Beta testers should be people who will use the app for quite some time. They could find any possible faults and irregularities that can be fixed easily by the development team. Without the help of beta tester would eventually spend time and money fixing glitches and even making major changes due to the structural mistakes.
