With the use of a Smartphone on the rise it is worthwhile to consider a mobile version of your website, responsive web design or even a mobile application.
What is a mobile application?
An application is a mini program that is downloaded and installed on a Smartphone or tablet.
It can be found in the Apple iStore and Google Play and one can download the application for free or for a set price.
An app can interact with data from your website and can be updated each time you are connected via your mobile internet capabilities or via WiFi.
Applications can be used without having to be connected to the internet which makes this ideal for sales reps or engineers out in the field.
There will be ongoing fees you’ll want to consider when building an application. As Apple and Google continue to make changes you’ll need to update your app on a regular basis.
A mobile application would be a great extension of your website if you have the audience for it. Some companies in the industrial marketplace have used an app for the following:
Sales presentations, catalogs and files for the external sales team.
Pricing and initial quoting for offsite sales – tradeshows, customer visits, cold calling.
Educating and keeping distributors up to date on product information.
Search functionality, calculators, configurators for an end user to solve every day project needs.
