When you need to "go mobile", First Line Software can take you there, whether your goal is a mobile application as a consumer product, or mobility for the enterprise.
Robust Engaging Mobile Apps for Consumers and the Enterprise
When it comes to mobile app development, many service providers emphasize technology. At First Line Software, expertise with the major mobile platforms, and with cutting edge frameworks, tools, libraries is simply a "given": it's just the starting point in our mobile development partnership.
User Experience: Mobile App “Make or Break”
Today’s savvy mobile users expect applications to be highly engaging and fast. Mobile apps that don’t offer a satisfying user experience simply don't get any traction in the consumer marketplace, and they lower the productivity and morale of enterprise users.
At First Line Software, we are passionate about world class mobile development that delights users. That's why our team will work closely with yours to envision, design and implement mobile solutions that are intuitive, straightforward and enjoyable - mobile apps that people will actually use, on the platform(s) they prefer.
Main Mobile Development Areas
Most mobile app projects will fall into one of these 2 areas:
- Mobile Application Products
- Enterprise Mobility
Mobile Product Development
First Line Software has a proven track record of working with product companies. We have helped dozens of customers get their products to market, often supporting them the entire way from the initial concept through technology research, implementation and testing to final delivery.
Our analysts and consultants work closely with your teams to help translate their product vision into a coherent roadmap and a manageable product “backlog” of specific features and functionality. We then help estimate the backlog in terms of time and cost, and prioritize the feature list, thus accelerating the process of getting to a “minimum viable product” (MVP).
Once the original idea has taken such a concrete form, it becomes much easier to quantify the required investment and the timeframe in which the product can hit the marketplace.
Our approach includes not only the business and technology issues around mobile product development. As mentioned above, User Experience (UX) is extremely important to the success of any mobile app.
Mobile in the enterprise introduces a wide range of questions that must be considered in addition to those around the mobile technologies employed. For example:
- What is the potential for impact on your business processes?
- What changes in your infrastructure may be needed with mobile?
- How will you control and protect your data when Mobile is introduced into the mix?
- What is your need now, and how is that likely to grow?
In addition to helping to address such technical issues as…
- What middleware approach makes most sense for your current and future set of mobile applications?
- Which mobile client architecture suits your needs best: native, web, or hybrid?
- What existing assets can be leveraged, and how?
...our Enterprise Mobility experts will work with you to help answer these and many other questions to arrive at the optimal solution for your mobile needs. We help guide your teams through the entire lifecycle: from strategy and architecture to device management, application development, testing and support. We work in partnership with our clients to deliver effective end-to-end solutions on time and on budget.
