Most companies have started opting for enterprise apps as a way to develop and provide their customers with more robust and quicker solutions ‘on the go.' It is also seen to increase the productivity of the employees by more than 34% and gained the company an extra 240 work hours per worker each year, reports.
How do Enterprise Apps help Organizations?
Apart from increasing productivity, most companies have opted for the BYOD fix or the 'bring your own device' concept which they can use to develop customer related solutions, respond to queries in real time and thereby able to work irrespective of their current location.
With these enterprise apps, which incidentally is slated to see a forty percent jump this year, companies are able to perform better and deliver solutions for their clients with an extremely quick turnaround.
Enterprise apps also allow companies to monitor all mobile related activities thereby enabling them to exercise greater control over how their employees use their mobile phones. Apart from this, enterprise apps allow for greater cross-platform collaboration and provide for better customer service with the ‘anytime, anywhere’ approach.
To develop a high-quality enterprise app in less time, Xamarin is proving to be a worthy accomplice. The platform has already built a community consisting of 700,000 developers and is used by 20% of Fortune 500 companies across 120 countrie . If you are looking to develop an enterprise app, you need to find Xamarin developers who fit the bill!
Advantages of Xamarin Development
Cross Platform Usability
When it comes to enterprise mobile apps, companies have to develop apps within a very short space of time if they are to maintain their edge and more importantly, come up with apps that work on cross platforms. Xamarin is able to do just that as a cross-platform mobile development language.
It is one that works on multiple platforms from Android to Windows to iOS, and it certainly offers a very robust platform for companies to use and develop custom based enterprise mobile solutions. The codes can be used across various platforms, and you can reuse about 75% of the original code.
When it comes to using Xamarin, there’s less development cycle time. So apart from keeping development costs down, companies can now use Xamarin to come out with enterprise mobility solutions at a faster rate.
As a result, they are able to develop enterprise mobility solutions with less development cost and can use the additional funds to market their products better, thereby inherently increasing their competitive edge.
This is one of the primary reasons why developers prefer Xamarin to others for the simple fact that with it, they are able to develop rich and detailed apps, with less downtime, less development cost, one that works on multiple platforms. With Xamarin and a better profit margin, companies can now market themselves better and even increase their growth.
Quicker Release Cycles
It goes without saying that the longer it takes for you to come out with your product, your competition is going to steal a march on you. When it comes to delivering mobility solutions, the time it takes to develop matters.
Apart from having shorter development cycles, the companies must ensure that their products are without flaws and test it for the same. But they still need to keep the development cycle to a minimum so that they can come out with a quicker release time.
Xamarin takes less development time to create enterprise solutions on it, utilizes fewer resources, allows for its codes to be reused by others and enables those well versed Java (Android), C# (Windows), and Objective-C and Swift (iOS) to work on it quite easily.
One of the most common complaints when it comes to mobile apps is that these apps often cause the devices to crash. It’s the same with enterprise mobility as well, but Xamarin comes packed with its ‘Insights’ which enables it to proactively monitor all the apps and crashes in real time.
The Insights feature will track all issues related to the app in question, report it, and even offer solutions for managed and unmanaged crashes. It also tracks patterns enabling it to identify and handle issues even before they crop up. With Xamarin, users should be able to monitor all events located with the issue in real time.
Xamarin makes it easy for developers to test their mobile UI in real time. The Xamarin test cloud provides developers for an easy way to check their enterprise apps, which uses less resource and is less time-consuming. This is yet another reason why Xamarin is the preferred option when it comes to testing mobile solutions. It also enables recording of user interaction on Android and iOS with the test cloud creating further scripts which can be further tested for compatibility with the app in question.
These are some of the reasons why Xamarin is fast gaining more support when it comes to developing enterprise mobile solutions. It has recently summed up an investment of $ 54 million (reported by Forbes) and more improvements and innovations are on their way!
