The company works with new trends in the tech industry such as Crypto and Blockchain, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), Fintech, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. “We serve consumers and businesses. We have helped individuals and companies to launch their coin or to implement DLT to their mobile app,” adds Klaus.

For the last two years, one of the company’s biggest projects has been the reporting system for crimes. By quoting, “it entails gamification and cryptocurrency” Klaus implies that the more one uses the app, the more crypto rewards one receives; the user can store the tokens in a virtual wallet later redeem or use it. “We had to think outside of the box and implement the right technology to entice users to keep using the app that also has Chat Bot technology,” he adds. Moreover, its self-motivated team works towards the same goal of working with emerging technologies and trends such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Chat Bot, and app development.

Field Service Management Apps are growing

Field service apps are a large part of many companies these days and they have been incorporating mobility solutions more and more over the past few years. Now field service based mobile apps are replacing all the old school paperwork that needs to be filed and reviewed. However the biggest benefit to using these types of apps is that all the information is securely accessible and stored in the cloud, so that it can be accessed almost immediately from the head office or collaborated on with other workers.

Field Service Apps Are Growing Industries

Over 80% of our workforce does not have a typical desk job and that number is growing by the year as more and more companies adjust to the new economic climate and try to be more agile to meet the demands of modern business. With the advent of mobile apps for field service and management based solutions, clearly this is not a trend that is going to slow down anytime soon.

Research (IDC) shows that the world’s growing mobile workforce is expected to grow to 1.3 billion before the year is out. In North America (United States, Canada, and Latin America) alone we have seen the growth of these mobile workers grow near 30 million over the past 5 years to a new high of nearly 210 million workers to date.

The mobile workforce differs from those traditional desk jobs and their needs must also be met utilizing newer and modern technologies such as field service apps that support them and their roles. Studies (Gartner) predict that by 2020, more than 30 billion (Yes, BILLION!) devices will be active, which will support and enable over $2 trillion worth of business transactions worldwide.

Service Leaders Depend On Mobile Solutions

Over 39% of companies have already implemented a field service solution in one form or another, which means the other 61% of companies are falling behind the competition. By the chart below you can see that 58% of established companies already schedule field techs in real time and only 45% of newer companies, clearly there is a solid demand across the board to provide field service techs and support and a system to manage those effectively.

5 Leading Reasons Why Companies Have Adopted Field Service Apps

#1. Staying connected was the number one reason for companies! Workers that spend a large portion of their time in the field have a plethora of paperwork and prep work to complete even before starting a call, and equally as much when they complete a job. By adopting mobile field service apps, companies are able to keep these workers efficient and organized which is a major factor in maintaining profitability. And keeping them connected allows the office to stream line the process and provide faster and better customer service.

#2. Mobile is a standard in most industries these days, and your customers demand faster reaction time and more detailed information on the go. Traditional method are not able to keep up with the needs of your customer, let alone your field works that are trying their best to satisfy your customers with the tools at their disposal.

#3. New technologies adoption are being developed every day and are expanding opportunities of your business…and your competitors on a daily basis. You must adopt these new mobile app solutions and tools in order to stay current and improve how efficient you are.

Now developing Apps for Apple TV / TVos

It has arrived! Our very own Apple TV (gen4) Developer kit has come in and we are excited to see what we can build for it. While the Apple fan boys will obsess over the new remote and the smooth interface, we are excited about what is happening behind the scenes.

While there is more programming languages to learn, new things to understand, and more hurdles for us developers to overcome, I really think there is some exciting benefits for end consumers. From business solutions, to games, to just having a new channel to reach out and connect with users.

Real World Solutions

Fitness / Health – I envision a explosion of exercise and fitness related options in 2016. Because a large portion of people that exercise at home already use DVD’s and videos to motivate themselves. But by using TVos, they can not have on-demand fitness content and videos, which will really change the way users consume health content.

Music / Entertainment – While Apple will always want to control music & concerts, I think the TVos is really going to break that construct and blow up. Through iTunes Apple has always had a tight control over music, because its really just been a simplistic media player. But with TVos, I see the social portion of Music really pushing the limits in how users interact with fresh music and even live concerts and shows.

Children / Games – While I don’t advocate TV as a way to babysit your kids, I think the Apple TV platform can definitely open the world to children and really bring social interaction back into their lives. Too many parents rely on iPads and Tablets to distract their children, but I image a world where the iPad is just a input device or controller, while the child can have live video calls with other families and children. Just image children having live webchat sessions, talking and laughing with other kids while they play word games or memory games face-to-face with other!

I am excited to see what sort of exciting apps and projects we get to work on in the coming year.
