Mobile apps can benefit a business in many different ways. For example, a mobile app for retail stores keeps customers involved even when they are not in store, and through the use of push notifications and special offers only available over the counter can bring them back.
Large businesses can use a mobile app to get away from email drowning, by providing a convenient way for executives and staff to interact (see the below examples for GrainCorp and NRMA). These act like mini communities within the organisation.
An online store can benefit from tight smartphone integration using their own app, rather than a mobile optimised version. It’s quicker for the user to find the store, as an app icon on their phone.
Ask yourself the following questions
- Does your audience (customers or staff) use a smartphone phone?
- Do they socialise and so business on a phone?
- Do they already consume your content on their smartphone?
It’s all about engagement in a convenient location (smartphone), and turning that engagement into your end goal.

Features – mobile apps for business
Easy to build and maintain
Setup can take as little as 7 days, building your own app through the easy to use web admin area. You can login and change content whenever you want, or you can hook up your app to pull content from existing websites or intranet feeds. We have an extensive video help library available for you to learn how to build your app, or we can do it for you!
Engage with Articles & News
Import your posts, news, or brand information seamlessly via our plugins for WordPress, Drupal, and Ning. We can also pull in your content via RSS from your website, categorise it, and lay it out nicely in the app. You can create mobile only content for that special draw to your business app.
Videos, Photos & Podcasts
Put up your marketing or informational videos and recordings to drive ongoing use of the app. Screencasts, interviews, presentations, round tables and group discussions can be pulled in from YouTube, Flickr, Picasa, Vimeo. We will pull these in through integration or via RSS from your website and intranet.
People, Maps and Directions
Build out rich profiles of your personnel with links to their website pages, and social media, link events to places so your out of town attendees can find the after party. Get voting and comments on articles, to gather valuable feedback for speakers and organisers.
Community & Social Networking
Connect attendees through your own in-app community. Status updates, photo sharing and more allow for maximum user engagement. Apps are integrated with Facebook, Twitter, Ning and Foursquare to provide seamless authentication and sharing for your users. Pull in your Twitter feed, Instagram feed and more.
Use features such as our full coupon management system to provide advertisers business opportunity that is tied back to your brand. Use push notifications to update during and after the event of interesting or important information.
