13. Please describe the operational structure of your company- from the moment a client walks in, to the product deployment.
Once the client gets in touch with our team, we guide them by contemplating their needs. The project manager takes responsibility for the client as well as coordinating with the teams. We follow an agile methodology where the project managers and project coordinators take on the regular scrum meetings. The managers ensure the proper delegation of tasks and responsibilities within the team and regularly coordinate to ensure the greatest levels of productivity. Once the product is developed the testing and quality assurance team digs in to find the loopholes. And, after the successful product deployment, the support team ensures all the post support and maintenance services to the client.
14. After service is a necessary part of development. How do you provide customer support to your client?
Of course, after-service is a vital part of development. Once we successfully deliver the project to the clients, we provide support and maintenance services to our clients. This includes - on-call support, system upgrades, regular checks, and more.
15. Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
Well, it’s a hard choice! Android or iOS are both different platforms with different integrations. The native apps are designed specifically for each smart form platform. In this case, you need to create two duplicate versions of the app written in two different programming languages. The hybrid apps, however, need a single common database that can run on both iOS and Android. So, the choice of platforms completely depends on the project’s scope and clients’ expectations. Once we analyze the details, one can move on to find the right platform.
