Happy new year to all our clients and prospective clients!
2018 is set to be the year of the mobile app.
During the holiday we received so many quote requests for mobile apps. Normally things go quiet during the holiday but not this year. It is clear that the clever entrepreneurs out there are seeing opportunities in the world of mobile apps. This special group of people do not keep normal office hours when they want to investigate their new idea’s possibility of becoming a reality.
We welcome this thought process and we enjoy engaging with these clients that often bring something so exciting to the table.
Some of the exciting apps we see being developed this year in South Africa include:
The app user receives a daily reward from participating stores at a low monthly fee.
The app user no longer has to carry a “Clicks Clubcard”, they just carry their phone and receive loyalty points when paying their bill.
These apps are like the Yellow Pages but more specialised so they provide specific results to the app user instantly. The most successful example of this locally is an app called Factory Shops. App user can instantly find their nearest factory shops for items they need to purchase. This free app helps people save money and helps factory shop owners get more feet through the door.
On demand service apps
The development of apps like Uber is becoming more affordable. People are enjoying the fact that they can request a service to be delivered to their current location and payment takes place effortlessly.
