“A best practice is a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives because it produces results that are superior to those achieved by other means or because it has become a standard way of doing things, e.g., a standard way of complying with legal or ethical requirements.”


It is common knowledge that mobile apps that are made with industry-best design and development practices in mind ensure that the business works in the most optimized ways possible. However, a key feature that is missed in the melee is that mobile apps themselves help businesses help design better workflow practices.

This article takes a look at how custom mobile apps can redesign business workflows to deliver enhanced products and services to their clients, and how the business environment can be bolstered so that employee deliveries at optimal.

Here are the ways in which custom mobile application development can redesign your business workflows:

Enterprise Mobility

If one looks at the term online, enterprise mobility speaks more on security and terms like Mobile Device Management (MDM) and such. However, a birds-eye view tells us that enterprise mobility is the presence of expansion of the business to its customer, business partners and employees.

Customers: The power of mobility via mobile apps that work on iOS, Android and the web, make sure that customers have 24/7 access to your products/services, customer services and content (information/images/videos/review and ratings etc.).

Business Partners: The business doesn’t stop working at 5 pm. Whether your employee is on leave or such, your business partners are connected to you from anytime-anywhere.

Employees: Suppose a customer relations manager logs out at 5 pm and a client has some important questions regarding a delivery. He/she can connect immediately via the app, get notifications via email and SMS. Moreover, Enterprise Mobility provides a huge boost, especially for field service employees. It doesn’t matter if your employee is at home or at the gym, connectivity is a given.

Enterprise Administration Backend

A custom mobile app development platform builds all-encompassing enterprise mobility solutions, where all solutions built AUTOMATICALLY have a mobile view and a web backend. This enterprise administration backend enables the in-house teams to manage and administer the business solution and includes a granular reporting engine and dashboards, fully configurable and customizable user administration for any organizational hierarchy.

With real-time analysis, managers and CXOs can make decisions based on data compiled from app usage across multiple smart devices and desktops. This helps them identify bottlenecks in the workflows and make changes accordingly. This helps bring in best practices to help employees perform better in an environment geared for optimal delivery.

Data Sharing

With the digitization of processes, critical and non-critical documents are shared through access to secure servers. This eliminates the need for paperwork and storage of the same. Moreover, employees can access documents immediately with advanced search options and don’t have to manually search for files.

Enterprise Mobility makes sure that all employees have access to data from anytime-anywhere. Also, customization allows each employee access to be defined by their specific roles. For field service employees, the immediate access to critical access like repair history, manuals and such can make a huge difference to their productivity, thus, smoothening the process.

Final Thoughts

Armed with custom mobile application development, an enterprise can take risks based on credible data and experiment with workflows and strategies to find the most optimal solutions. The simplicity that enterprise mobility provides through custom mobile app development is incomparable to any other technology-driven solution that can be found in the market today.

Custom mobile apps can drive workflows that will help create the best-practices suited to your unique organizational architecture while integrating best practices shared by the industry.
