Custom mobile apps

Extending your business systems onto mobile devices to empower your workforce has never been more relevant. A connected mobile application for your business can help to build significant competitive advantage, changing customer perceptions, enhancing team efficiency and increasing engagement.

Mobile technology offers so many possibilities and often costs less to implement than you might expect. Imagine announcements popping up on your teams’ smartphones to relay key messages or changes to their schedules, gathering vital data and images straight from the field, directly into your database, or allowing your customers to receive individually customised offers and pricing.

Our team has the business experience to help you formulate a vision for your connected business, the front-end technical skills to deliver native mobile apps on iOS (Apple) and Android, along with the back-end skills to build or integrate with your back-office database.

We will be happy to advise on the different options for connecting with your mobile users and we will always seek pragmatic integration solutions, whatever the current situation. We can build you a new end-to-end solution or facilitate a bridge to your existing systems.

Our approach

KLOC understands the concerns of businesses as they choose a partner to build a bespoke solution for them, and we aim to eliminate risks and build confidence right through the process. We involve you in all phases of the project and sign off each stage to make sure that you are completely happy with the final outcome. We follow six steps on all our bespoke projects to ensure we deliver what is needed and that budgets and timescales are met.

1Discover

We start by working closely with customers on a discovery exercise to understand all aspects of their requirements. This ensures we both know exactly what is needed and when it has to be delivered. During this process we will document use cases and user stories and produce workflow diagrams.

2Plan

Once we have the requirements in sufficient detail, we design an optimal solution that will satisfy this and deliver the most value for the business. During this phase we will produce screen maps, wireframes and other diagrams that that will help you to understand how the solution will look and behave. The designs give us the detail we need to define the effort and costs to build the solution.

3Create

Once the costs and delivery plan are agreed, we commence the build phase with a series of sprints, each of which delivers some aspect of the solution. We schedule weekly progress meetings and make the new software available to view throughout the development so that you can see it grow. Once the solution has been completed and signed off, we go through full acceptance testing procedures with the client.

4Launch

We understand that going live with a new solution can be stressful and nerve-wracking. We always work closely with our customers to launch the solution together, with our full support through the transition to ensure it happens as smoothly as possible.

5Support

The KLOC experience doesn’t end when the software goes live, we offer on-going support and maintenance to ensure continued satisfaction. We provide maintenance contracts with SLA’s for response time and prioritisation of issues or we can work from task to task as needed.

6Evolve

We know that business needs change over time, so we remain on hand to help with the evolution of the software we develop. If new features or capabilities are needed, KLOC will be there to assist.

We have accumulated huge experience in developing business systems, with the technical capability to build integrated mobile solutions that really deliver.
