Develop your own App Store with Enable

Build It BetterAugust 20, 2011

With the continuously growing need to access applications and data on the move, consumer products such as iPhone and Android powered devices are increasingly being used to meet business requirements.

The benefits of consumer apps apply to the business world. Benefits such as being able to optimise the user experience for the device screen size and being able to work with intermittent Internet connectivity.

One of the major challenges is deciding which devices to support. Do you support Android, Blackberry, iOS, or a combination of those? Perhaps you need to support all three, which involves a rewrite of the application. Also, if you are developing a business app it is surely important to be able to access it on a desktop computer and/or web browser? If you do develop multiple versions of your app then you will need to integrate with each of the App Stores.

There is another approach to this challenge, using Enable. We can provide you with your own company App Store, and develop applications once that work across Android, Blackberry and iOS as well as desktop computers and web browsers without having to be written multiple times.

This is achieved by delivering each application over the web but using the latest technology to cache important information locally on the device, therefore allowing you to work with intermittent connectivity to the Internet. The applications look and feel like locally installed applications.

Build It BetterJune 21, 2011

Enable has delivered an iPhone application to allow merchandising teams to capture real-time data during site visits.

With annual sales in excess of £130 million, DCS is one of Europe’s largest distributors of health and beauty products. Under the direction of founder Denys Shortt, the company has witnessed unprecedented growth over a period of seventeen years since it was established in 1994.

DCS supplies over 30,000 retailers and 500 wholesalers in the United Kingdom and exports to 70 countries worldwide. In addition to handling the distribution into selected markets of brands such as Gillette, Colgate, P&G, Unilever, L’Oreal and Cussons, the company has launched its own Enliven range of budget-priced toiletries.

The importance of accurate customer compliance data

Providing accurate, up-to-date data to their renowned range of suppliers is vital to DCS. Deals that are agreed between suppliers and customers determine which products are to be displayed by the customer, at specific prices and positions. Short-term promotional deals are offered and core range products are identified.
