The app development journey is far from over after launching in the marketplace. The challenge now turns to user acquisition and retention. In a highly competitive market, positive user experience is what separates the successful apps from the forgettable ones.
Apps are now an integral part of digital strategy, with well over 1 million apps in both the Itunes App Store and Google Play. As a result, the market has become increasingly competitive and app discovery poses one of the biggest challenges for businesses.
With the rapid growth of digitisation and smartphone usage, and the ever-changing consumer behaviour, businesses need to invest in mobile strategy. Mobile apps provide businesses with the opportunity to engage their customers, grow revenue and build assets.
Mobile strategy is crucial for future growth in any business. When it comes to building apps, many companies are unsure whether to take a custom or platform development approach. Although the idea of building a custom app from scratch may be appealing, it is important to recognise the hidden costs associated with it.
Healthcare providers are now recognising patients as customers, tailoring their services to meet specific needs at each stage of the patient journey. mHealth apps are fast becoming one of the best tools for this type of personalised patient-centered care, empowering patients through providing relevant and easily accessible information.
As the healthcare industry continues to digitally transform, providers are focused on adopting new strategies to enhance workflows and boost patient engagement. In particular, mobile health (mHealth) has introduced new and innovative approaches in healthcare that support patient engagement and value-based care models.
Digitisation is occurring at a rapid rate, and businesses are scrambling to adapt. The focus of corporate strategy should now be shifted to implementing new digital initiatives aimed at increasing the efficiency of business.
Apps are continuing to dominate the mobile ecosystem, with the consumption and usage of mobile devices rapidly increasing. Herein lies the importance of implementing native apps as strategy for improving user engagement.
The integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), strategy and brand identity has become an integral part of business. Organisations are now leveraging technologies, and digital strategy, to tackle the bigger issues surrounding CSR.
