APP DEVELOPMENT

SHARE IDEAS AND GET RESULTS

FAISAL MAHMUD, Dhaka
SHARE IDEAS AND GET RESULTS

No one in their right mind would find any similarities between the MobioApp office and the huge premises of tech-giant Google. After all, the former is located in Dhaka, a city known for its huge population and lack of space.

But this “space crunch” makes MobioApp the “Google” of Dhaka. When software companies are renting pigeon’s holes to accommodate programmers and business anal

1. Improving internal communication:
Mobile app development can be used to strengthen internal communication. Apps can connect remote workers to your internal network to facilitate document sharing, they can encourage data-sharing and note-taking among employees, and they can even connect people to business meetings through video chatting.

2. Managing online reviews:
To see how you’re faring as a company and how you’re perceived in the eyes of customers, you need to remain on top of customer reviews. Reading customer reviews will allow you to personally respond to feedback, whilst gaining a deeper understanding of the ways your business is failing to meet customer demand.

3. Improving customer service:
There are a lot of ways apps can improve customer service. You can manage social media and emails more effectively, allowing you to respond quickly to customer inquiries. You can connect with customers from wherever they are and provide them with push notifications or updates about your business.

4. Remembering critical tasks
and meetings:
With all that employees have going every day, they’re bound to miss an important meeting or a deadline. Apps can be used to improve task management and time management, thus minimising wasted time or skipped meetings.
 
5. Working on the go:
With so many businesses requiring travel for work, many are encountering issues with working while on the go. There are a variety of ways your company can leverage mobile app development to ease the process of mobile working. Use cloud-based apps to store business data and files, so data can be accessed from any device. Create communication apps that will keep all employees up-to-date about the company, no matter where they are throughout the day.

MobioApps actually has pigeons nurtured and taken care of on its office premises spanning over five bighas of land at one of the premium locations of the capital.

“And we have other birds, including two big turkeys”, said Jamil Rahman, an intern working at the company.

“In MobioApp, we don’t have the usual Sunday morning blues. We love to be here!” he added.

The office premise consists of six one-storey buildings amid the greeneries. It looks more like a country house rather than an office. To think that it is located on Airport Road, right after the Farmgate overbridge!

“Programming is not an easy task. After writing all those code and debugging, a breath of fresh air is something that we all need. Mobioapp gives us just that,” said Fida Muntasir, a programmer working there.

On top of the greenery in and around the office, MobioApp has recently launched a programme called ‘Fresh air’ to take employee satisfaction to new level.

What is 'Fresh air'?

'Fresh air' is a consultation programme of MobioApp, said Asraf-ul-Jubair, a senior business analyst at the company.

“MobioApp is a sister concern of Datasoft Ltd, the largest software house of the country, and solely focuses on the development of mobile apps. Mobile apps are the future. People want new apps daily. Keeping that in mind, Mobioapps has decided to include common people and try to get an insight from them about what sort of apps they want”, explained Jubair.

Lashkar Palash, the managing director of MobioApp, said: “I believe it’s a groundbreaking attempt because no one has thought of doing such things yet.”

“Programmers are relentlessly developing mobile apps to make things easier for people. Our company is a frontrunner in doing so in Bangladesh. This fresh air programme is taking it to a new level,” he added.

The first consultation

The company recently launched its first 'Fresh air' programme on the office premises. People from different backgrounds and professions gathered in its offices to share their ideas about new apps.

Mahadi Abdur Rauf, a doctor by profession, came to the open consultation session to share his idea of an app. “I want to open a night-time pizza delivery restaurant. For that, I need an app. People can place the order of their customised pizza in their app through an interactive process. They should be able to track their delivery man in real time like the famous ‘Uber’ app. I have come here to know how and for what price such apps could be developed,” he said.

Nihad Ferdous, a banker came to the consultation to provide the idea for developing an app working as the personal financial assistant. “We have now a lot of online marketplaces. I want to have an app which would suggest me one particular best offer on one category by analysing the offers under similar categories in all marketplaces,” he explained.  

Assalutazzaman, a senior business analyst with another software firm, came to the consultation session to share the idea for a large enterprise-level RMG management app.

Many others have also come up with ideas for different games and connectivity apps.

It’s all about ideas

Palash said that the first consultation was very successful. “We wanted to have that interaction with others. We wanted that because to develop apps that would actually help people to do things,” he added.

He also said that the people did not always use their smartphones to the fullest in daily life. “Smartphones are not there just for providing communication and browsing experience. It's there to do the business as well as office work for you. It's also there to be your personal health assistant. You just need to have apps for doing those things,” he explained.

He said the consultation session help MobioApp to form ideas about the apps that people actually wanted. “Our developers will develop these apps. We just need to get ideas,” he added.

Jubair said that MobioApp would continue to arrange such consultation sessions. “Keep an eye on our website or facebook page to see when the next consultation session happens,” he added.
