FAQs

Q?

Why does my business need a mobile app?

A.

One great benefit of having a mobile app tailored to your business is that the information you’d like to provide to your customers, including sales and promotions, is right at their fingertips all the time. When you include the additional benefit of push notifications, you’re even closer to instantaneous interaction whenever it makes sense. You can also use digitalised loyalty programs, book appointments, place orders and standout from your competition offering numerous solutions.

When you realise how much time adults are now spending on smartphone apps (33 hours in Australia and 42 hours in America each month) you can see how much potential an app offers your business as these numbers grow.
