When a lot of businesses think about getting their own mobile app, they often consider this a means of customer engagement. Yes, an app can be a very effective marketing tool, but have you considered creating an app for internal use?
Developing an app for your business can bring a range of benefits including:
Improving productivity: an app can be created to simplify a task or reduce paperwork, giving users more time to concentrate on other jobs
Increased efficiency: users can load information straight into your system, rather than having to update later
Enhanced visibility: access your systems from anywhere - customer appointments, home, etc
Improved engagement: post internal comms messages once and track who has accessed them

Bring your idea to life
If you have an idea for an app, or a process within your business that you are looking to simplify and think an app may be able to help. Some examples of apps we’ve created for our customers are:
Delivery management and tracking – the app enables deliveries to be assigned to drivers, managers or support staff can then open the app to track the status of the deliveries. This creates complete visibility of the delivery process and allows for improved customer service as the location of a delivery can be accessed at any time.
Digitised workflow process – we created an app which allowed surveyors to input data while out on-site visits, previously they would fill out paper forms and then type results up on their return to the office. The app has improved the speed of the process and accessibility of data, other departments can access the data without having to wait.
Intelligent time management – the app allows time sheets to be uploaded, analysis can be performed, and reports can be produced from the data.
Maintenance procedure – the app allows for tasks to be allocated to team members, who can then note the progress or completion of the job. The app has improved the visibility of the jobs and improved the efficiency of work being completed.
Health and Safety procedures - the app holds all relevant health and safety info required on site, which can be accessed through the app
Chances are that your employees already have company mobile phones, so why not utilise them to do more? Apps are revolutionising many business processes by maximising the value of mobile devices in the work environment by streamlining processes.
