Your users have all become increasingly mobile, so your applications have to follow. Few applications today are successful without providing interfaces accessible from any device, anywhere. However, with the variety of devices available today, having the right mobile development strategy and a team to execute it are critical to sustainability and scalability.
Today’s highly competitive talent market makes it hard to find good mobile developers. It’s even harder to find developers that work to truly understand your business and have the ability to also develop your back-end systems and seamlessly integrate the two together into a cohesive end-user experience. Our mobile engineering teams bring extensive front-end and back-end development experience across a wide-array of development platforms to support you in making the right technology choices and bring your application to life.
We listen actively to truly understand your business and identify your mobile technology requirements.
We work with you to design and engage a tailored team with experience in the mobile technologies you need.
We build great software together, with our team seamlessly integrated into your development process.
As more and more users are interacting with systems from their mobile devices, it has become increasingly important for user interfaces to adapt to these smaller screens without losing their effectiveness or diminishing the user experience. Our front-end developers work closely with you to identify what elements of your application are critical for each device experience, and then build elegant designs to deliver a seamless user experience across the full range of mobile device form factors.
The technologies and options for building and deploying apps are rapidly growing and maturing as the mobile market continues to expand. Responsive web applications can work almost anywhere now, but there are many times your business needs to deliver a native app experience. However, building separate apps on every mobile platform you support can be cost prohibitive and time consuming.
Using a hybrid app development platform like PhoneGap or Cordova allows you to manage a single codebase and still deploy your app across all major device platforms with ease. Developing a hybrid app also allows you to prove your concept quickly in the market, before you make a bigger investment in native app development. Our team of mobile experts can help you determine when to use a hybrid approach over native app development, and then work with you to design, develop, and deploy an app that delivers an easy-to-use, native-like experience to your customers, regardless of the device they are using.
If your business applications are already built on the Microsoft® technology stack, building mobile apps in native or hybrid platforms introduces additional complexities and costs, since you have to add skills and technologies in order to support and maintain them. The Xamarin platform allows you to build cross-platform mobile apps using the same familiar Microsoft® languages, tools, and infrastructure you have already invested in.
Our Xamarin experts can help you design and build native-like mobile experiences to run on iOS, Android, and Windows phones and integrate them into the rest of your application landscape. You can keep your development and support costs down without jeopardizing your ability to reach your end-users on their device of choice.
We didn’t know how to even approach building our system with its two mobile apps. Covalience quickly grasped what we wanted to do and helped us figure out what was needed to get it done. Throughout the project they communicated clearly in ways we could understand, without a lot of “tech talk”, making the process accessible for us.Tom Moucka
While hybrid development can be used to build almost any app today, sometimes you still need to develop native iOS apps. You may not be able to access the iOS device functionality you need through the hybrid platform or you need the optimized performance of running native. When you need to develop native, you want a team that is current on the latest developments and capabilities within the iOS eco-system.
At Covalience, our mobile engineers are constantly researching and experimenting with the latest developments for designing and building iOS apps. When you need to build an iOS app, you can depend on our developers to help you get it built right, with the right balance between time to market and long-term maintainability.
Android is rapidly growing in the market, especially outside the United States, and it can’t be ignored. Given its wider array of supported devices and screen sizes, it presents unique challenges in building seamless user experiences for your apps and integrating with phone features. With Android apps being built to run on JVM technology, finding good developers with experience in Java ― or the newer Kotlin ― can be difficult.
You want a team that is current on the latest developments and capabilities within the Android ecosystem. As always at Covalience, our mobile engineers are constantly researching and experimenting with the latest developments for designing and building Android apps. You can depend on our developers to help you get it built right, with balance between time to market and long-term maintainability.
Mobile development is never “one size fits all”, so we provide flexible options for engaging with our engineers. Whether you need a team for a specific project or an ongoing partnership to complement your existing team, our engagement architects can help you define, design, and implement the right team.
Covalience always took the time to listen to us and understand what we wanted and then asked great questions to guide our product development. With Covalience driving our software engineering, we didn’t have to worry about product development and could focus on building the business and executing our sales and marketing plans.
