Enterprise Mobility

Think about how far mobility has come since initially being introduced to the enterprise as an email and information sharing device. Today, mobile technology has untethered organizations from operating solely within their four walls and instead has enabled them to do business wherever it happens.

The next generation of enterprise mobility will be about driving a seamless, integrated mobile experience – giving employees, customers, and partners the ability to pick up any device and have instant access to all of the data, tools, interfaces, and controls they want. But they need to be able to do this without compromising data security and integrity.

Case Study: Stanley Steemer Mobile Solution

For more than 60 years, Stanley Steemer has been the leading residential and commercial cleaning organization in the nation with more than 1,500 yellow vans, 300 locations, and coverage in 48 states.

An early adopter of mobile solutions in the field, Stanley Steemer’s mobile applications and technologies were quickly becoming outdated. When leadership recognized that the legacy technology needed a modern refresh to handle the expected growth and product line expansions in the years to come, they worked with Merit Solutions on a new cross-platform, easy-to-use, and scalable mobile solution.

AGILE DEVELOPMENT

Our proven end-to-end methodology includes working with clients throughout the entire process, from developing mobility strategies and technology plans through to the design and adoption of enterprise mobile applications. This Agile software development approach is:

  • User story driven and focuses on the needs of end users, keeping solutions lean. Every feature needs to incrementally add value to users or customers.
  • Transparent and collaborative, keeping clients informed and engaged. We encourage clients to be involved every step of the way, including prioritizing features, sprint planning, and review sessions.
  • Iterative and incremental, keeping predictable, time-bound Sprints. New solution features can be delivered and implemented quickly and frequently.
  • Flexible, keeping all options open. There is always the opportunity to reprioritize or add new features to the backlog to be included in the next Sprint.
  • Designed to increase quality, keeping value high. We continuously monitor every feature delivered, finding issues earlier and resolving them before they get bigger.

Merit Solutions provides tailored services and solutions that focus on reducing the risks associated with enterprise mobility projects while driving maximum value for clients.

Native vs HTML5 vs Hybrid: What Mobile Solution is Best?

Your entire value stream – from customers to business users – expect information to be instantly accessible and presented in a way that makes the most of their device’s capabilities and form factor. Apps that fail to meet these demands are abandoned.

Performance, reliability, design, and usability are the main factors that determine user engagement. With respect to these factors, a fully native app has conclusive advantages over non-native or partially native alternatives.
