We present the four big categories, universal we could say, in which we will frame the development of a mobile application. But also some integration with databases.
Considering all the functions related to a device / smartphone, the development technologies include a smaller or greater part of these functions, this being essentially the first very important criterion of technological differentiation.
In fact, we do not create a mobile application itself, but we make sure that the website you already have or that we can build from 0 if it does not exist, will be able to be viewed in optimal conditions and from most devices- of mobile phones of today. This means in short, that every time someone enters the browser, on your website, on your mobile phone, the window sizes will be adjusted / updated in real time, depending on the device on which the browser was opened, for an optimum user experience, on a small size display, such as a smartphone.
PWAs are a technology that allows the construction of a mobile application “over” an existing website and offers a fairly good first set of access features to the phone resources, but quite limited compared to hybrid and native applications. PWAs work with a set of APIs (Application Programming Interface) that connects to the website, through which it implements a number of phone-specific functions within the website (such as card payments, camera startup, microphone startup , etc.), in the end the user practically navigates to your company’s website in the browser (Google Chrome), but can activate directly from the site and features such as camera, video camera or GPS.
Native apps allow the development of any functionality stated by a particular user, regardless of the complexity of the request and allow almost complete access to absolutely all the hardware functions of the device on which they will be installed. In fact, native applications can access all the hardware resources of the device if there is no restriction imposed by the trade or related to technological patents or intellectual property rights. At the same time, native applications, precisely because they have direct access to the functions of the device, are even faster or much faster in some cases, the user experience being very good. Native graphics can often be exceptional
There are a variety of software solutions for integrating a business through databases, below we present the spectrum that we are covering.
Customer relationship management (CRM) is an approach to manage a company's interaction with current and potential customers. It uses data analysis about customers' history with a company to improve business relationships with customers, specifically focusing on customer retention and ultimately driving sales growth. One important aspect of the CRM approach is the systems of CRM that compile data from a range of different communication channels, including a company's website, telephone, email, live chat, marketing materials and more recently, social media. Through the CRM approach and the systems used to facilitate it, businesses learn more about their target audiences and how to best cater to their needs.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is the integrated management of main business processes, often in real-time and mediated by software and technology. ERP is usually referred to as a category of business management software — typically a suite of integrated applications—that an organization can use to collect, store, manage, and interpret data from these many business activities. ERP provides an integrated and continuously updated view of core business processes using common databases maintained by a database management system. ERP systems track business resources—cash, raw materials, production capacity—and the status of business commitments: orders, purchase orders, and payroll. The applications that make up the system share data across various departments (manufacturing, purchasing, sales, accounting, etc.) that provide the data. ERP facilitates information flow between all business functions and manages connections to outside stakeholders.
The point of sale (POS) or point of purchase (POP) is the time and place where a retail transaction is completed. At the point of sale, the merchant calculates the amount owed by the customer, indicates that amount, may prepare an invoice for the customer (which may be a cash register printout), and indicates the options for the customer to make payment. It is also the point at which a customer makes a payment to the merchant in exchange for goods or after provision of a service. After receiving payment, the merchant may issue a receipt for the transaction, which is usually printed but can also be dispensed with or sent electronically.
