Apps are everywhere and with good reason: they’re convenient and easy to control. This is especially true with enterprise mobile and will directly affect the productivity, and eventually cooperation, of your employees. No one wants to go from the convenience of using apps to just step back two years technologically when it comes to the work place. This may seem a little dramatic but the truth is, people like apps and if you don’t provide them with a great enterprise app, they will resort to shadow IT and store your sensitive corporate data on a public server.
This statement is a bit of a cliché, but the future is now: there is no better time to put some serious thought into the future of your company and what mobile will mean to it. The workplace is changing and people are on the move. With lots of companies taking advantage of this new mobile lifestyle, your employees will expect you to make the move there as well. Even if you’re just in the planning stages, they need to know that it’s coming. The last thing you want is your employees becoming unhappy while looking longingly over at other companies who are embracing mobile.
So what makes enterprise apps so important? Not only is it convenient for the end-users, but it provides you with the control to implement the security that you need. The bottom line is; your employees are going to use apps whether you authorize them or not, so it’s best to make them your apps.
Enterprise mobile app development is not something to cut corners on when it comes to you IT budget. You need an app that’s user-friendly and secure. Like any other service, you get what you pay for so going with the cheapest solution will end badly if you’re picking it for budget reasons alone. There is nothing worse than a poorly made app which makes it entirely necessary to hire a tested developer with a great track record with enterprise apps like the one you’re trying to build, or to purchase an App development platform your IT department is comfortable with and has produced some great apps. This is no time to hire your basement dwelling nephew who “knows a little about coding”; apps are a serious business in the enterprise and need to be treated as such.
If you haven’t already considered enterprise mobile apps, you’re already behind the curve and will soon be left in the dust as your more mobile-savvy competitors leave you in the dust.
