Five Points that Makes an Engaging Enterprise Mobile App

5×5 for building 5-Star in-house Enterprise Mobile Apps #3

Here is #3

Five points that makes an Engaging Enterprise Mobile App

1. Extend existing systems by innovating in new ways. Just transferring a PC based or paper based solution is NOT enough

2. Display/Consume data in new ways

3. Keep UX design familiar to the deployment platform rather than any existing desk bound app. Simple and intuitive with a Corporate Branding

4. Adapt to your Users

5. Make sure it is ready and fit for the purpose. Nowadays users expect it to work well first time
