Off-the-shelf or custom?

Posted Aug 19, 2014 12:20:39 PM by DecisionPoint Team & filed under

With the 100’s of thousands of mobile applications available for download one would think that finding a mobile business application is a simple search away. However, the reality is that the majority of these applications for download are consumer and or entertainment in origin. The mobile business application market is still a niche, vertically oriented marketplace and as such, the number of applications available for any particular industry varies greatly. For example, if you are a plumber looking for a field service application you will have many off-the-shelf applications to choose from. However, if you are in the sign installation business your options are more limited.

Custom developed mobile applications fill to voids. First, they provide solutions for those industries that have few current options available to them. Second, they provide solutions for those companies that have options but do not want to conform to the business rules, user interface or support platforms that the available application provide. Whether you select off-the-shelf or custom, the good news is that every company can leverage the business advantages provided by mobile computing solutions.
