What are mobile apps?
A mobile app is a software application that runs on a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet. The latest generation of mobile devices are powerful enough now to rival the capabilities of PCs from a few years ago. In addition, they have additional sensors like GPS, accelerometers, and barometers to name a few. Almost all modern mobile devices also have at least one microphone and camera. Access to Wi-Fi and cellular networks means that mobile apps can send and receive data. Consequently, a worker using mobile apps can be as productive as a desk-bound worker, sometimes more so.
Developers of mobile apps are continually coming up with innovative new ways to use the many combinations of sensors and connectivity options available on mobile devices. Success in some business situations depends on being at the right place, at the right time, with the right tools. The capabilities of today’s mobile apps allow you to do so. Mobile app development costs are declining as better development tools are created.

How can mobile apps help me?
How mobile applications will benefit your business depends on how and where you plan on using them. Customer facing apps are used to delight existing customers, win over new ones, and build your brand. Mobile apps that will be used by your employees or other businesses are usually emphasizing a design that makes it easier to complete tasks, reduce the time it takes to perform tasks and lower the task completion costs.

- Build a stronger brand and extend the visibility of your brand
- Boost profits while reducing customer support costs.
Apps for mobile workers
As new generations enter the workforce, they bring with them new expectations for how, why, and where they work. They seek a sense of belonging, which they look for in physical and digital workspaces that are open, inclusive, and sharing. They want integrated tools that simplify collaboration and help them quickly connect with their coworkers—without sacrificing security.
The creativity of mobile workers can be unlocked in an environment where people can express themselves and are inspired
