Why mobile apps?
Smart phones change the way we work, play and live. Let’s set some trends With a greater prevalence of I.O.T (‘Internet of Things’) technologies, we build apps with the belief that smart phones will become ever more integrated into our daily lives. These technologies are a great push-off point for Cyber Byte. We’ve become an industry trend-setter in I.O.T. Tech and will continue to place ourselves at the leading edge of this technology in future. When we’re asked about how we see ourselves by our clients, the answer is simply: We see ourselves as purveyors of apps everyone else thinks are impossible to build because the solutions haven’t been thought of yet! We want to set the trend in how apps communicate – not only with each other and the app’s primary users – but with the world around us.
How do we do it?
Modular and Agile all the way Building apps is our passion but we also know our clients want to be kept in the loop. How things work is as important to them as it is to us. This is one of the primary factors we consider when building apps for clients. Right from the outset, we involve our clients in every part of the development process – from design, to demonstrating app integration, on towards how the app will become part of their service offering.
We encourage and welcome client involvement, inviting them to throw their own thoughts and ideas in when interacting with our team. From these sessions we gain valuable inter-operational data. This allows the team to create the best screen designs and data workflows for the end user. With all this in place, we move onto planning and execution of a robust project plan. Our approach to app development is a modular system wit the aim of delivering a working app to our clients as fast as possible. This approach consists of three core phases. The three-phase approach Phase One: Build out the entire design – every screen and all static details the app will have. This is a ‘dummy’ version of the app, with usable ‘mimic’ data.
Our clients then test and ‘play’ with the app to challenge the project team’s assumptions regarding work-flows, and how they think the app will work. Phase Two: Once the dummy version is refined, the real, back-end data is inserted, and integration into the client’s systems and services begins.
Each new feature gets brought online as a new release, giving our clients the opportunity to test and play with each new section and feature as it becomes available. During this phase, clients have the opportunity to change or alter their own workflow or internal processes to better provide the service or feature.
Phase Three: The final phase is full-scale deployment. We list the app on the client’s behalf and navigate the store deployment process with them to get them up and running.
Post-launch Phase Once the initial release is made, we encourage our clients to continue app update releases by deploying new features, enhancing or refining existing ones. This keeps the app relevant, up-to-date and provides a better user experience ongoing.
End-user feedback is considered and applied to assist with the adoption of the app by a growing user base.
