We help customers devise a comprehensive mobile strategy across the enterprise consistent with the Federal Mobility Strategy and the Digital Government Strategy guidelines. Subsequently, we design, develop, and deploy custom Mobile Apps extending the enterprise applications to iOS, Android, and Windows devices.
We apply lean mobile principles to mobile apps development, flawlessly blending with enterprise systems and processes.
We focus on:
• Prioritization of mobile needs within the organization
• Putting out a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to test initial assumptions
• Creating a modern and visually appealing User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design
• Agile, iterative development with “sprint” review sessions
• Full transparency of the development process to stakeholders
We undertake all proceedings from obtaining app approvals from the app store to final release of the app, enhancements, and ongoing maintenance.
Our Solution Highlights
Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
We believe in rapid prototyping and the MVP approach, to deliver just the right amount of mobile app functionality within a short time frame. Our objective is to be more effective in achieving the end goal of discovering features that meet user needs by spending least amount of money. Our fast-paced product development cycle involves our customers, empowering them to provide the important feedback required to drive successful future iterations and development and quickly move forward with final product design and development.
Cross Platform Development
Have you wondered if it’s possible to write code once and compile it on multiple mobile platforms? Yes, it is—and we excel at doing so. We have extensive experience developing mobile apps using Microsoft Xamarin Studio. Xamarin enables us to write code in C# and facilitates easy integration with existing enterprise applications. Apart from the native UI, app logic is shared across iOS, Android and Windows, significantly reducing development and maintenance costs.
Native App Development
The native mobile apps we develop are for use on specific devices or platform and take maximum advantage of target platforms and their operating systems. As we develop native apps in .NET C#, Objective-C, and Java, we focus on more than just core device capabilities. The native apps we design and develop adhere to each platform’s design patterns and standards. These go beyond a left-aligned header on Android versus a center-aligned header on iOS. In fact, there are hundreds of small differences in the design of user interactions on each platform, which we address. Taking these variations into account means the apps we design are intuitive to use and play well with each platform’s ecosystem.
Hybrid App Development
Automating App Testing Across Multiple Devices and Configurations? We’ve Got You Covered.
Mobile users are perhaps among the most demanding consumers of software today. They expect mobile apps to be responsive, bug free, and low cost. Apps that don’t meet these expectations will be promptly uninstalled and given very low ratings. Furthermore, with a constantly evolving landscape of devices and operating system (OS) upgrades, there are more device types and phone configurations today than ever before, making it increasingly difficult to test mobile apps across various device types and platforms.
We use Xamarin Test Cloud, a cloud-based solution for automating UI acceptance testing of the mobile apps we develop. Test Cloud enables us to simultaneously test our apps across hundreds of different devices and form factors. We can test everything users can do, from pinching and swiping to double tapping and scrolling. We take care of UX and UI automation testing complexity, freeing you to focus on your mission.
