With technology continuing to disrupt the traditional flow of business, it’s more important than ever to understand the role of mobile. How can you use mobile and apps in your business? How is mobile being used across the world? What would a world without mobile look like?
This week in Xero Gravity, hosts Gene Marks and Elizabeth Ü dive deep into the world of mobile applications and the opportunities they present for your business. Joined by Guide Kick’s Mark Paddon and Ice House’s Redmer Schukken, Gene and Elizabeth ask some of the tough questions about developing and using apps, security online, and streamlining business operations.
“In the US and Europe, everybody has a desktop and now has a smartphone as well,” Redmer tells Gene and Elizabeth. “But in Southeast Asia, the whole desktop is being skipped, so people go directly to mobile phones.”
“One of the biggest pieces of advice I would have for developing a mobile app is to get something functional. You’re going to learn so much more than what you probably assumed ahead of time,” says Mark.
Find out more about what these experts have to say when it comes to proper timing and practicality for mobile app development for small businesses.
