Think Your Idea Is Not Good Enough For Application Development?

Your Idea Not Good Enough For Application Development? by Khris Morrison

Got a great idea on a new business or product? Have you ever thought it would be nice if there was software to help you in the endless cycle of paperwork?  Or, have you said to yourself, "My staff would get more done if they did not have to track everything in Excel!"  You might even find yourself wishing for an app that gives real time updates on sales figures.  You are not alone.  In today's world of software development, those ideas and dreams can come true.

It's amazing how many times I hear about clients that actually use Microsoft Excel to maintain inventory, customer phone numbers and addresses for mailings, or to perform simple everyday tasks such as creating an invoice.  These clients may spend hours or even days performing these tasks that, with the right application, would take minutes.  These same clients are often reluctant to meet with a software developer because they think it would be too expensive to make their ideas a reality.

Carlos Santana once said, "Everything starts with an idea, with imagination."  Imagination and vision are vital to the success of a business if we don't let our minds get in the way.  A lot of people have great ideas but lack effort in making them reality.  Most of us have heard the story of Steve Jobs, who started out in his garage only to become the visonary and CEO behind Apple, Inc. And what about Michael Dell building PC's in his dorm room only to go on and build a multi billion-dollar company we know today as "Dell Computers"?  These men are no different than you and I but are set apart by the effort they put behind positioning their idea with the right resources to make it happen.

Cost should not be the only deciding factor in your pursuit of a great idea.  It's important to find a great company with honest and hard-working software engineers willing to take the time to listen to your ideas, understand your needs, be mindful of a budget, and capable of putting the right people in place.  You, as the client, should feel like no question is a bad one to ask.  It's about creating a partnership where the client, project manager and/or software engineer work toward a common goal together.  I've had the pleasure of working with clients who took a simple idea and grew it into something effective and they were proud of. This is the desired outcome and will be the end result  when a company uses best practice solutions and maintains integrity for their clients.

To find a company that you can trust, you need to ask yourself some very important questions.  "Does this company have experience in the field that I'm in? or "what is their customer base" or "What kind of reputation do they  have?"  It it's a mobile solution, you should ask yourself if your idea needs to run on mobile devices such as Apple's iPad and iPhone, Microsoft's Surface tablets or any other tablet running Windows 8?  Many software development companies are keen on developing mobile responsive applications (also known as mobile web applications) that can run on most devices. However, if you are considering a native application, which is built to only run on a specific mobile device, the software development company should be capable of developing that as well. For a successful outcome, it's about understanding the end result and working with the best team possible.

Next time, I will share my thoughts and go into detail about creating a mobile application and provide the pros and cons on building a Mobile Web app versus a Native app.  Stay Tuned!

how can i burn calories commented on 10-Mar-2014 09:53 PM
According to Ori Hofmekler, author of The Warrior Diet,
stubborn fat has a lower ratio of beta to alpha receptors.
The more muscles you pack on, the more body calories
you will burn because the calories you have eaten will be burned for
energy by your muscles. You can be comforted
to realize that many new soldiers need to carry more than a
hundred pounds in their backpacks, and walk for many days.

You know, when someоne asked the inspirіnǥ
Robert Frost if he reads himself as a teacher,
he explained: I am not a teacher, but an awakener. I do believe tҺis blog works exactly the same
because it awakens me, and others I guesѕ, and mskes me think.

When asked for my name and number I'd give the card ' easier
than scribbling on a piece of paper and then you can ask
for his business card. Identity theft can happen on a
small or large scale, so to better protect yourself, make sure to secure your personal information.
Which is exactly why you should obtain your credit report six
