Our enterprise app
development lifecycle

1
Preparing and designing
  • We study the client’s needs and business goals, collect requirements from all stakeholders, decompose tasks into features, estimate workload and costs, and identify eventual risks.
  • We form and onboard the team.
  • We do research to study the audience and build a Customer Journey Map to cover all user scenarios including negative ones.
  • We detect eventual bottlenecks, barriers and issues and find the ways to avoid them.
  • Based on the insights, we create prototypes.
2
Developing
  • We develop native applications with Swift and Kotlin, or a cross platform application with Flutter.
  • We set up an interaction with the back end. We write middleware to ensure that the app properly communicates with the back end and receives the data promptly.
  • We perform all required integrations with internal and third-party systems.
  • We set up user analytics.
3
Testing
  • We use both manual testing and automated tests. Every new feature undergoes component tests. For regression testing, we apply scenario tests.
  • We set up a testing environment and integrate the automated tests with the Continuous Integration (CI) environment.
4
Release and maintenance
  • We speed up releases to 90% due to DevOps.
  • We document thoroughly all project  approaches and data and transfer the updated documents to the in-house team.
  • We continue to support the project under SLA, or assist in finding and training the team, if required.

FAQ

How do enterprise mobile applications improve organizational performance?
  • They help reduce time and resources for solving business problems. They allow automated workflow and converting document flow to digital format. You can digitize operating processes, or integrate internal and third-party services into a single IT system.
  • They contribute to improving the quality of execution and monitoring operational tasks. You can achieve this with online reports and checklists and real time analysis and prompt decision-making in real time. You can automate planning, set up a regular collection of KPI statistics. The apps help track compliance with rules and procedures for both individual employees and divisions of the company.
  • They allow enhancing the communication within the company. You can create internal messengers, information portals, internal social networks, or knowledge bases. Or convey online surveys to collect employees’ feedback.
  • They help to develop the company’s HR brand. The apps can include internal loyalty systems with leaderboards or internal stores where employees can use points they get for the achievements. They present convenient tools for solving practical HR tasks or gamified training.
Why is it worth choosing a custom enterprise app?
  • Focus on the needs of your business: we adjust and adapt an app to your processes and goals, and not vice versa. You are not limited in choosing the necessary features, design, and technologies.
  • Foundation for future growth: we lay down opportunities for further development of the app from the very beginning. We choose architectural solutions and the technology stack to ensure higher scalability. And provide for better integration with third-party systems.
  • Competitive advantage: we create an effective tool for you, tailored to your goals and KPIs. Such a tool is not available for your competitors.
What are some of the challenges of custom enterprise application development?
  • Custom application development will cost more than the out-of-the-box solutions on the market.
  • Creating an application from scratch will need more time than integrating ready-made solutions.

We recommend cross-platform development with Flutter as a solution. It is a cross platform framework developed by Google.

Flutter provides high performance and native look and feel for all platforms. And it allows reducing the time and cost of development by up to 40%. This is possible because apps for several platforms (Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, Linux) use a single code base.

How much does it cost to develop an enterprise app?

Cost of an app development will vary for every project depending on scale and requirements. Here are three factors that have impact upon costs

  • set of functions,
  • number and complexity of integrations, and
  • works required for the backend part.
