Mobile Solutions For Software Providers

Whether you’re a Web 2.0 startup or enterprise software vendor, you’ve built a business of helping customers get stuff done using your software. No doubt you have some users asking for a mobile edition, but lots of users ask for lots of things.

All hype aside, extending your web app to mobile is best viewed as a business opportunity, which you can evaluate with the right questions:

  • What mobile functions would be most valuable to your existing customers?
  • How can you increase the average revenue per user by offering a mobile edition?
  • How would offering a mobile edition increase loyalty and recurring revenue?
  • Could you attract new customers and grow revenue by entering mobile channels like Apple’s App Store?
  • Do you have any mobile-only competitors who may be gaining ground?

If going mobile is the right business decision, the next question is how to get it done. No doubt you have strong technology expertise, but you may find it surprising how much time and energy your team could spend in becoming strong at mobile development and integration.

MindSea offers an alternative model for qualifying software companies:

  • We bring expertise in mobile development and integration.
  • You bring the vision of how to extend your software to serve mobile users.
  • We jointly plan out a mobile application or web interface, including support for iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry platforms.
  • We deliver the mobile components, working as an extension of your team.
  • We can also provide training and ramp-up to help your team become proficient in mobile development for ongoing releases.

Through this approach our customers are able to rapidly deliver mobile editions of their existing software, without the long ramp-up period of starting a mobile development practice internally.
