Benefits of Mobile App Development

For businesses across a wide range of industries, adding a mobile app into the customer journey can help maintain a competitive advantage and boost revenue. Take retail for example: In 2020, consumers spent 82 billion hours on mobile shopping apps, marking a 30% increase from 2019. By embracing the rise of mobile, your business can achieve:

  • Improved customer engagement: When customers are able to easily access your business’ products and services via their mobile device, they’re more likely to engage with your brand, purchase more products, reach out for support, and so on. 
  • Amplified marketing capabilities: You can attract more consumers to your brand, as well as encourage larger purchases, by turning your app into an additional marketing tool. For example, many businesses use push notifications to alert customers about special deals and promotions, resulting in increased customer engagement, conversions, and sales. 
  • An elevated digital presence: Building a mobile app gives you the chance to reach new audiences and present your business offerings in a fresh and innovative way. 
  • A competitive advantage: Do the other businesses in your surrounding market have mobile apps? If so, it’s time to catch up. If not, use this as an opportunity to stand out among the competition.
  • Data analytics: By collecting data from your business’ mobile app, you can learn more about your customers, optimize internal workflows, and develop stronger sales and marketing strategies.
