The great philosopher, Heraclitus, once said “The only thing that is constant is change.” This is a universal truth and strikingly applicable to the major changes and advancements we’ve seen in recent years. Technological advances have thrust mankind ahead, in socializing, business and various aspects of life. From international markets to personal relationships, the technology boom has affected all our lives in an incredible way with lasting impacts. Although many other revolutions have changed the world in the past, few were rapid enough to change and grow during the process, making even greater strides and immediate changes. Foreseeing, investing in and making the best out of these situations is crucial for new-age business people to find success.
For the last half of the decade, one revolution that’s brought on enormous change has been Mobile Apps. Time spent in using mobile gadgets has tremendously increased while the average time spent using apps has gone up to nearly 87% against that of websites and browsers.
We are all aware of the advances in mobile technology that have fueled the mobile app industry. OS based devices and hardware advances has ruled out many big players in mobile industry and we can now see an iOS and Android duopoly on the scene. These advances have been supported by the growth of mobile app technology. Thanks to the scaling requirements for mobile apps, the incremental mobile innovation is still occurring.

Various business processes have been simplified, accelerated and enriched with the inclusion of mobile apps in the resource set. Let’s consider the majority of them and analyze how mobile apps play a pivotal role in the new age business schema. These are some of the main benefits of mobile app development:
Branding and Advertisements
Brand visibility is ensured as it is just a swipe away from your customer. Everyday, potential customers come across your brand name and logo making them think of your services. Branding has never been easier and quicker than this and even advertising has new rule books with the introduction of mobile apps.
Many amenities business or service websites cannot offer are covered in mobile apps instead. This can be in the form of real-time support, CTA buttons, easy payment services, secure transactions, fast response times, service confirmation and personalized or localized services to ensure greater customer satisfaction.
Hardware resources can be heavily utilized to provide better services like navigation, biometric security and many more. While your customers can access your services any time they want and while on the fly, you can get valuable information and feedback about consumer behavior using mobile apps as well.
Mobile apps can double as a valuable marketing tool also. It can be easily integrated with Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. This means, with a single tap, customers can share your app with their own network, talk about their experience with your company, which can then offer you free publicity. Plus, using push notifications, you can quickly send upcoming promotions or special events to your customers and prospects. Apps provide a channel to constantly give updates regarding your services and new offers to your customers.
Potential Source of Income
Besides the websites and physical stores, mobile apps can also be another revenue channel for your business. For example, by providing functionality to make restaurant reservations, book concert tickets, or buy goods and services, you are making revenue generation possible within a few taps of a finger. Furthermore, you can also earn money by charging app users when they upgrade, or by offering in-app advertisements. You can also include mobile app-exclusive discounts or specials to make sure customers check the app often.
There are many potential benefits of mobile applications in terms of boosting productivity, efficiency, competitive edge and user experience. But that’s not all. Apps are really a great tool to easily experiment new business models also. You are able to get results much faster without having to spend a fortune on resources and analytics than the conventional methods. This can work for any free online service that wants to implement paid-business services, like online stores, is an example. Instagram and Facebook stores are easily implemented and can be introduced as a new model of online business.
“Go-mobile” is really a big, and to make sure that you have the best among your competitors, you may have to seek professional expertise and advice. An engaging product always helps, but to have your customers within reach is vital. You cannot settle for simplicity as customers are constantly moving and always appreciate better services.
