What's your Mobile strategy? We hear that question often at mobile conferences. A better question is: What's your mobile opportunity?
What’s your Mobile strategy? We hear that question often at mobile conferences. A better question is: What‘s your mobile opportunity?
Have you thought about the possibilities? Use QR codes to track your inventory, automate your production, control your video experience. What about emulating a touch screen kiosk with a traditional HDTV, QR codes and mobile (may I add, at a fraction of the cost)? What about using OCR (character recognition)? Scan your receipts, then generate and submit your expense report. Scan, report, get paid all in your app. Who needs a keyboard anyway?
Mobile provides a superior (UX) user experience than the desktop. Really? Yes, really. Mobile is more than just a small screen with a popup keyboard. So much more.
Less is more; Easier is better: Mobile concentrates on the most critical functionality and content. The most frequented features are within a couple of taps or swipes. Why type, when you can scan, locate, concatenate?
Mobile as a co-device: Mobile is now part of the in-store, in-restaurant experience. Mobile integrates with your video experience.
Mobile plays well with others: Create on our desktop, modify on your tablet (we refer to it as the coach computer), and locate on the go with your smart phone — or the other way around. It remembers when your “available everywhere” 3G or 4G connection is not (available).
Mobile adapts dynamically (Responsive Design). Using technologies such as CSS, Android Fragments or IOS XIB files, Mobile can adapt it’s layout and functionality based on form factor decreasing your development costs.
AAND Tech has Industrial Strength Experience with Mobile. Look at our portfolio of our recent projects and you’ll agree.
Web Services/the Cloud
The Cloud offloads the work of managing servers and data; you concentrate on your core business.
Web Services enable your current web application for Mobile, simplifying your architecture, saving money.
Web Services enable communication. Think of web services as web pages with only the information. Web Services are actionable. Web Services not only deal with data storage, but notification, coordination, calculation, aggregation and determination.
Tap into web services from Google, Facebook, Twitter, Twillio, Amazon, Best Buy and others for maps, email, social networking, text, and retail.
The Cloud offloads the work of managing servers and data; you concentrate on your core business. As one person put it, “I don’t have to wear a pager”. Cloud providers are experts in availability, security and scalability. The biggest draw is the Cloud saves money. Only in cases where your service and data is really big or very specialized does it make sense to not use the Cloud
AAND Tech has the track record of providing, consuming and combining Web Services to realize your innovative ideas.
