CUSTOM MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
During 2012 alone, consumers around the world purchased a staggering 821 million smartphones and tablets, and that number increased to more than one billion for 2013. Furthermore, they are using them to access websites in increasing numbers. A comparison of website traffic during the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2013 showed that the use of traditional PCs declined from 81.6 percent to 73.2 percent, while the use of tablets rose from 9.6 to 14.6 percent and the use of smartphones increased from 8.8 to 12.2 percent.
The prevalence of mobile devices means that enterprises looking to improve efficiency are starting to depend on custom mobile apps to put company resources right in the palm of their customers’ hands. Mobile apps for business are a great way for enterprises to stay in tune with customer needs and save money on marketing tools. It also benefits company-client relationships, as clients will have support whenever and wherever they are.
Although much custom mobile application development focuses on improving the customer experience, mobile apps for business do far more than make it easier for customers to complete purchases. They also help your company operate more efficiently, thus reducing costs, and allow you to collect vast amounts of data that can be analyzed to target future strategies or marketing campaigns. Custom mobile application development can also encompass solutions for field services and retail execution management.
FIELD SERVICES MANAGEMENT APPS
Personnel in the field, such as technicians, can provide better customer service and optimize their schedules if they have access to the information they need. A field services management app allows technicians to check on parts, track their time, receives critical changes to work orders in a timely manner, issue invoices and much more. It also allows office personnel to send new work orders as they arrive, and keeps them informed of the tech's current location.
Field services management encompasses the need to schedule, optimize and dispatch technicians or other personnel who perform their duties in the field, such as at clients' locations. Providing outstanding customer service is a crucial part of field services management. Technicians who arrive late or without the necessary equipment, sales representatives who cannot commit to a delivery time or drivers who attempt to make deliveries after hours can create a negative perception in the minds of your customers.
Managing field services can be quite challenging. Here are some of the most common issues faced:
Rising fuel costs
Lack of real-time, two-way communication
High customer expectations
Prioritizing tickets to minimize related costs
Lost information needed to invoice customer correctly
Lack of data that could benefit analytics
Field service management software is designed to meet the major challenges that businesses face. A well-conceived, properly implemented field service management app can help managers as well as field personnel by providing the solutions to the most critical needs, which are:
Dispatching personnel in a timely manner with tickets worked in such a way as to reduce time and fuel costs between jobs
Management of parts and inventory to include quantities on-hand, in-process or back-ordered
Integration with mobile devices to allow office personnel to push work orders or other communications to personnel, allow personnel to access data needed, use web maps to locate service addresses or digitally record customer's signature
Real-time notification to field personnel of work order changes or appointment cancellations
One or more calendars to make scheduling more efficient, faster and more easily managed
Customer-facing portal offering clients the ability to request a specific day or time, track the status of their work order or access their account information
Link technicians' billable work or travel time to individual tickets

RETAIL EXECUTION MANAGEMENT APPS
Manufacturers often have no way of knowing what happens to their products between the times the retailer accepts delivery and the customer makes a purchase. Many have little or no control over how a retailer executes a promotion, such as product displays. Mobile apps for retail execution management make it easier to collect data in retail locations, allowing problems -- such as a store that has no product on hand for a promotion that is about to launch -- to be corrected in a timely manner.
Retail execution management software is not just for wholesalers and manufacturers who furnish retailers with their products. Retail operations can use it to monitor the performance of each location individually. Retail execution management software can streamline the process of managing field personnel while improving productivity and efficiency.
RE management applications have numerous advantages for businesses ranging from the smallest manufacturer to the largest retail chain. Some of the most important highlights are
Offline mobile data collection allows field personnel to do their jobs even if cellular coverage is unavailable or lost
Real-time data analytics of high-quality information is possible. Data collected can be quickly reviewed so that issues requiring immediate attention can be prioritized. Analytics offer detailed insights into product, retailer, broker or channel trends.
Business processes can be streamlined. Detailed, real-time information about store conditions can be accessed. Automatic reports can be used to monitor how effectively plans were executed and to analyze methods of improving future executions.
Although it is critical for each store to implement a promotion properly, retail execution management involves multiple issues before, during and after the planned execution. Retailers must have the supplies they need to execute a promotion, such as banners, racks or flyers. They must plan their staffing needs to accommodate the plan. If the retailer needs to be resupplied during the promotion, field personnel must be able to respond quickly. The streamlined communications provided by the software allow for not only real-time reports, but also bi-directional feedback.
The collection of data is important to plan future promotions. Even if they are offline, field personnel can make notes, such as how quickly the retailer sold out of a particular item or size, that can prove beneficial. Analyzing key performance indicators help determine the performance of each store before corrections are too late to help.
If you are interested in using retail execution management tools to become more proactive, contact Ricksun today. Our teams have the skills and expertise to help you find the best solution for your issues.
WHY CHOOSE RICKSUN FOR YOUR CUSTOM MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
Our team is committed to providing our clients with the best product possible for each customer's specific needs, and we take the time to determine exactly what those needs are. We help streamline your business processes by extending your company’s mobile employees to access data on their mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad or any Android devices. Our Agile-based project management methodology is a catalyst for our rapid application development cycles, which greatly reduce the time-to-market of your custom mobile apps. Custom mobile apps must be accessible via any operating system or device that users might choose for their mobile communications. People tend to become very frustrated when they find that their favorite device cannot manage a particular app, and they will fix the blame on whoever provided the app (meaning you). The same thing goes for apps that do not recognize the need to create displays that are easy for mobile-device users to read and navigate. In other words, a good mobile app is not just a scaled-down version of your website. At Ricksun, we ensure that your custom app will incorporate all of the functionality and features that you need.
Modernization represents the changes that every organization must face as the generations of technology, skills and expectations are inevitably replaced by the next ones. Migrating a legacy app to the cloud will completely rejuvenate your business.
The basic idea of cloud computing can be traced as far back as the 1950s and the use of static terminals to access software residing on a server. However, it was not until the dawn of the 21st century, when the web became more dynamic and less focused on documents, that cloud computing made its first appearance
The traditional model involves physically installing software on a server or desktop, complete with the purchase of licenses for every user to be granted access to the software. When new versions or patches are released, the process must be repeated. As a company adds employees or needs additional functionality, new licenses or software must be purchased and installed.
Cloud software eliminates these steps. The software does not reside on the users' machines. Instead, users access the software through the Internet, or in some cases, an intranet. In addition to the basic software, applications can be created for a fully customized experience.
Cloud software is completely scalable
Because it resides in the cloud, software is not taking up room on your physical machine
Updates can be pushed automatically to all users at the same time
Software and data residing in the cloud are accessible from any device that can connect to the Internet
Cloud solutions typically require less up-front expense and less maintenance
Resources are shared and allocated according to demand
Moving to the cloud is an effective way to modernize your IT quickly. Deployment can be almost instantaneous as there is no need to physically receive or install a cloud app or software. Since software-as-a-service, commonly known as SaaS, is priced on a subscription fee or usage rate, it is normally more economical than purchasing a "lifetime" license for a product to be physically installed on the user's computer.
Ricksun has the expertise to help you with your next project, whether you are moving to the cloud for the first time, already use SaaS, need a specific cloud app developed or are interested in a complete mobilization solution. We offer a variety of solutions for your IT needs and concept-to-implementation of SaaS application developments.
