An organisation has decided it wants to invest in a mobile app for its employees – so what next? This decision is becoming increasingly common in the modern business landscape, as mobility continues to drive productivity, efficiency, and cost savings.
With a growing global workforce of ‘deskless’ employees, apps are actually fast-becoming more of a necessity than something businesses can choose to have or not have. With up to 37% of office-based workers now spending an average of eight working days in a typical month away from their desks, that additional rising demand will also be pushing businesses to invest in mobile.
So, the next decision the business will typically look to make is how to deliver the app it wants. However, there are a number of crucial factors which must be carefully considered, and fully understood, before investing in a technology solution to build an enterprise mobile app. When it comes to Salesforce, these considerations are even more important, thanks to the vast number of partner technologies and platform capabilities within the ecosystem.
Unfortunately, many businesses launch into their efforts to mobilise internal systems without taking the necessary steps in determining the class of technology solution their apps will require – a mistake which inevitably results in the app failing in some capacity.
