Is mobile learning important? According to a 2017 report by Statista, global mobile data traffic is expected to increase nearly sevenfold between 2016 and 2021. As of February 2017, mobile devices accounted for 49.74 % of web page views worldwide.
An even more remarkable report by ComScore indicates that users spend on average 69% of their media time on smartphones and 80% of social media time is spent on a mobile device. In fact, average smartphone conversion rates are up 64% compared to the average desktop conversion rates. Surprised?
You shouldn’t be. With the overwhelming growth in smartphone and tablet computer adoption over the past several years, users are becoming increasingly comfortable with and reliant upon mobile devices for everything from email to financial calculators. Mobile learning is a natural application for this powerful new technology.
When your learners demand On the Go access, will your organization be prepared to give them what they need?
Today, training needs to be available at the point of need. Performance support provides just-in-time access to what your users need to know, when they need to know it. Digitec has worked with organizations to create both native apps for Apple and Android devices, as well as mobile web applications to solve real problems in real-time.
Technician performance support
Imagine you have technicians doing hardware and software upgrades across hundreds of retail locations. Each location might have a unique combination of equipment. If your technicians order the wrong equipment, the costs and scheduled labor impacts are staggering. That’s just what one of our clients faced.
Digitec created a performance support mobile app that walked technicians through an equipment scoping process. Using photos, the techs could easily identify the existing equipment. The algorithms in the app then automatically filtered the controllers to match that equipment, cutting down on errors. At the end of the process, the app submitted a completed order form to headquarters, saving our client tens of thousands of dollars and completing their installs on-schedule.
Sales performance support
Today, an increasingly technical sales process means that your sales team needs access to the right data to make the right decisions, quickly. That’s when the right sales tool can make all the difference in your sales performance.
Digitec has created mobile apps for the hospitality industry, allowing sales teams as well as consumers, to walk through complex sales, using data-driven algorithms to recommend just the right solutions.
Digitec’s developers use web application technology, including PHP, Java, Objective C, ColdFusion, as well as integration with Oracle, SQL, MySQL. Digitec has designed sales performance support for CA, Symantec, Dell, Disney, Hilton, Starwood and many others.
Digitec designs and develops mobile apps for training your mobile sales force, your management team and your customers.
As of 2014, access to the internet through mobile devices has overtaken access from desktop computers. Already, 60% of all internet searches occur through a mobile device.
How can you make sure that you’re capturing an increasingly mobile population?
Digitec develops mobile applications in native iOS for the iPhone and iPad, as well as in Eclipse for Android-compatible devices. Digitec also develops in HTML 5 for other mobile devices.
Digitec follows a modified waterfall model for application design and development.
The creation of a mobile app begins with a design document to outline the business objectives, target audience, supported handsets/operating systems and a proposed application flow. During this early design phase, our staff collaborates with the project team to recommend the best solutions. We combine creative design with experienced application developers to make sure that the application achieves the business objectives and your technical requirements.
Whether you need a learning app, sales tool or a creative way to reach the growing number of mobile users, Digitec provides mobile app development from design to implementation.
