Custom intranet increases productivity-development, solutions

Ever wanted to automate your day to day office work to improve productivity and efficiency? We all do the same tasks over and over again, some of us keep making mistakes; this is natural because we are humans and errors can creep in due to various factors like fatigue, lack of sufficient time and stress. Intranets help bridge this gap and automate your everyday tasks to provide increased efficiency.

Why custom intranets?

With many out of the box intranets in the market place, why custom build your own intranet? Some of the reasons are stated below.

  • While we do appreciate the wide variety of choices available today, none of them will fit your exact needs. A fit all approach won’t fit you or anyone else perfectly
  • Custom intranets work according to how you want it to, while boxed software requires you to run and adjust according to them
  • Even if out of the shelf intranets fits your needs 75% of the time, there will come a time when you will require a custom feature and it will be difficult to have that in boxed intranets, even if you are willing to pay extra
  • New requirements – Let us not under estimate your new changing requirements which will be continuous because our environment and business will keep evolving. What is in today may be obsolete tomorrow. Your intranet must adapt to your every changing needs, only your custom intranet will be able to do that

There is no doubt that building your own intranet results in a higher cost and time compared to boxed software. But it will be precise and exact to your needs.

As custom intranet developers, let us assure you that all your requirements and needs will be taken care of. We will be designing the intranet similar to a proper Information System and will be giving you the exact functional results after proper requirement study,  investigation and analysis. We mostly develop using open source so it is easy for you to migrate and make changes yourself.

Our intranet solutions all have the below features

  • Speed – Fast access is critical to business. We have seen software taking more than 10 seconds just to load up a page which is not acceptable. Our intranets are swift so you can access your data with minimum wait time
  • Accuracy – Our reports and information are precise and accurate
  • Security – The intranet is secured with a username and password. There can be multiple users using the intranet, each protected with their credentials
  • Open source – We mostly develop using open source technologies like PHP, MySql and Apache. There are many advantages like portability and reduced project cost

Some ways your intranet can help your business

While there will be so many ways you want your intranet to work, the system and application will depend on your business and exact needs. Intranets can be very small or extremely large. However here we list a few ways to give you ideas and inspiration.

  • Record business transactions, offers and last prices to customers – if you spend a lot of time tailor making quotations and offers to clients regularly then your intranet can save you a lot of time
  • Sales targets, commissions, sales details for improving sales
  • Collection targets, outstanding, collection list to improve payment inflows
  • Reports – Reports for various divisions like Sales, Marketing, Customer Service and Management – Your staff can have access to their reports to help them improve productivity

Middle East Electricity mobile app development in 2 weeks

We are glad to announce that we have participated in the recently concluded Middle East Electricity (MEE) event held here in Dubai, UAE, albeit indirectly, through our ipad app! The project was interesting as well as exciting mainly because we had so little time to prepare for it. We had less than two weeks and we had to design, develop, test and be ready for the event live on the floor!

Before we proceed, if you don’t know what mobile app development we are taking about then please read our earlier post on Mobile App development in Dubai. There we gave a brief summary about mobile applications and the various ways you can apply to your business or organization.

Below is the list of work we had to do for this project:

  • Create a quiz that pulls  in the questions from a remote server
  • Pull 10 random questions out of a pool of 15 set questions from the server
  • Provide navigation to move to the next or previous question in the quiz
  • There is a timer which submits the answers to the remote server on time out
  • The result is displayed instantly and participants are notified if you have qualified for the lucky draw
  • Registration and login were implemented in the app so users could play instantly
  • Multiple checks had to be in place like the same user could play just once. Em
  • Admins could log into the app and select the winner for the prize
  • Admins could also log into the back end server to manage user details, set questions and correct answers, and see the winners list among other features

For us this was a classic iPad app development that very little turnaround time and no room for mistakes. Not delivering on time was not an option because the event date was fixed. Of course it was very demanding and challenging, and we had to pull out all stops to make it happen. For example there was no time for an Apple review so we had to tie the build to the iPad minis. Then again most of the devices were having an older version of iOS so we went ahead and upgraded each one of those units.

But we’re pleased with the end result, and so is our client. We were able to deliver on time, there were no glitches at all on the days of the event and everything was smooth sailing.  We were expecting tech support calls but very few came! That, I can tell you, is the ultimate satisfaction :)

Our client Scientechnic had a busy time and the MEE event was very successful for them with many hundreds of quiz participants. Scientechnic held multiple draws and awarded many iPad minis to the winners.

Below are some screenshots of the app

 

As experts in mobile application development here in Dubai, this high standard of delivering as committed is expected of us, and we are of course very grateful to our client who laid down a crystal clear picture of their needs so that there was no ambiguity in the requirement, which was critical to the project’s success as we had very little time to prepare.

Overall it was a fun project, all of us had a great time, and were successful in delivering our products. We look forward to many more such programming achievements to underline our commitment towards developing awesome apps for our amazing clients and delivering on time.

Get more for your business

We all want to maximize our results by being different, to stand out from the crowd and deliver outstanding performance. Apps can help you do that. You can create apps to make a difference. For example, DHL was recently voted by its staff to be the best place to work in the UAE. One specific reason was that they had an app to make hr communication easier and smoother. This is just one instance of how useful an app can be. You can create apps to improve sales, marketing, branding, advertising, staff, communication, customer service and much more!

If you have any requirement for an iPhone or Android app then feel free to drop us a line here and we would gladly give you a free quote or meet up to drum up ideas.

SEO Latest Update on Guest Blogging

Latest Update in SEO….

Guest Blogging is dead:

As you all know guest blogging is one of the most powerful methods in SEO under off-page technique. With the help of this guest blogging we can get back links to our project and also we can increase much traffic by doing this posting…

How to do guest posting is a question…??????? Here you go…
In fact there are many places for starting guest posting. Like join your local community and become a member and start the discussion, search for niche blogs and post your ideas on the others article and give your project details.

Note: Post only good information with is related to the article you have read then only your comment will be valued otherwise it’ll take as a spam so be careful while giving ideas on others article…
Guest Blogging work is the bloggers work which is same as a social networking’s like communicating with other people in the same blogosphere so that we’ll get more traffic for our blogs.

We have two ways of guest blogging….

1. Guest Blogging in our own Blog: When others writes a post for you to publish on your own blog. That blogger can usually contact you and rise to provide a guest post to you, otherwise you will contact a blogger you wish and request a guest post.

2. Guest Blogging in other’s Blog: When you write a guest post to be revealed on another blogger’s blog. Typically, you contact a blogger whose blog you relish and ask if you’ll be able to offer a guest post contribution.

But today according to Google’s Matt Cutts Guest blogging became spam if done regularly….

http://blog.seoprofiler.com/2014/01/googles-matt-cutts-guest-blogging-dead/

Google’s Matt Cutts made it clear that guest blogging for seo is dead. If you plan to use guest posts to increase the number of links to your website, you should reconsider your strategy.

If you’re guest blogging as the simplest way to achieve links in 2014, you must most likely stop. Why? Over time it’s become more and more spammy, and if you’re doing plenty of guest blogging then you’re hanging out with very dangerous company.Back in the old days, guest blogging was as powerful weapon, very similar to obtaining an in-demand, revered author to write down the introduction of your book. It’s not that approach to any extent further.

Three Things That Says Guest Blogging is not Totally Dead

1. All SEO Gets Spammers. SEO Still not Dead

2. No Difference between Guest Blogging and Any other kind of Content

3.Guest Blogging Helps For Not Only Getting Back Links

1.All SEO Gets Spammers. SEO Still not Dead

In this case we got many things which are occurred as spam but we not stopped doing these things like doing a lot of keyword targeting, image optimization, link building and so on.

If an SEO tactic works, then it will get more and more spammy with time; there is no spam-proof SEO technique. Every technique has to adapt over time with the competitive landscape and the algorithm. Likewise, marketers always need to focus on long-view quality over short-term effectiveness, regardless of the technique. But just because spammers start doing something doesn’t mean you have to stop.

2.No Difference between Guest Blogging and Any other kind of Content

Google can’t algorithmically differentiate between guest blogs and other kinds of articles. Blogs and websites aren’t legally bound to disclose that anything they publish is a guest post or not a guest post, and in some cases it’s just a matter of perspective.

Think about it – a lot of the content that appears on high-quality news sites like the New York Times, or extremely popular, high-ranking sites, like the Huffington Post or Buzzfeed, is created by freelancers. If you author a bylined article for a site that you don’t own or that doesn’t employ you full-time, is that a guest post? The categories are murky because we only think of it as “guest blogging” within the SEO industry; it’s not a term from the world of journalism. There’s no foolproof way for Google to determine the motives of any given author, whether they wrote and published something for links, exposure, money, or pure altruism.

Still, if you’re worried that Google is going to crack down on guest blogging, there are a few things you can do.

As a publisher:

I. Publish only good guest posting
II. Don’t let them know that you are a guest poster

As a Writer:

I. If you find a site that says “we’ll publish anything” reputation, stay away.Don’t do any guest posting for that sites.

II . Build good Relationship by communicating through your ideas not the links for your site.

Google has always stressed that quality, unique, user-friendly content is the key to search engine rankings. My guess is, sites that publish content that meets all those criteria won’t be penalized, whether or not some of those content pieces are “guest posts.”

3. Guest Blogging helps for not only getting back links

Most of the people use Guest Blogging for Back Links.We’ll insert some spammy links on your blog without you realizing it.’”

So again, if you’re worried: Just don’t put links in your guest posts. “So why am I guest blogging?” you ask? Links and referral traffic are two of the big incentives for guest blogging, but without those, you still get brand exposure. If you write a high quality piece of content and want to get it in front of a bigger or different audience than you have on your own site or blog, guest blogging is a way to do that. You can attach your name and your business’s name to that content, even if you don’t include any links back to your site. Or, ask the publisher to no follow link. Remember, Wikipedia links are no-follow, but can still drive a lot of valuable traffic.

app development dubai

Apps development is a tedious and time-consuming task. To find a development company which can create beautiful, fully functional and engaging apps is very difficult mainly because there are so many companies, and so many options.

Where do you start? To start off, let me be clear that we are talking about mobile app development. Let us go through some questions and answers which will make your goals and objectives clearer and hopefully help you choose the right partner for your application development.

What are mobile apps? How was it different from my website?

There are three things we need to categorise very distinctly. First is your website, which is designed specially for the desktop. Second is your mobile website which is your website version for mobile phones; since mobile phones displays are much smaller than desktops, your mobile website should be optimised for this small screen do enable users to browse easily. Mobile websites run on the same technology as your desktop website that is HTML, CSS etc. The third one is your mobile app which is the focus of this blog post. Mobile apps are created specially to run on a particular mobile platform; for example an android app will run only on the android platform. It will not run on an iPhone. An iOS app will run on iOS operating systems by Apple which means it will run on the iPhone and the iPad but not on android devices.

App development for mobile operating systems in UAE

What are the advantages of a mobile app?

Mobile apps typically run on native code which means it can run faster, more efficiently, and more importantly it can access various features and functions on the phone which are not available to browser. You can access the camera, turn on bluetooth, use geolocation, access photos and contacts; the possibilities are limitless. Imagine the power in your hands on how you can apply them to get new customers and satisfy existing customers by providing the best possible user experience to them while they are on the move.

Should I go for my own mobile application?

We feel you should absolutely go for a mobile application because that is the future, and most companies are headed towards that direction both big and small. Mobile applications were very expensive to develop a few years ago, but today here very reasonable and gives high value for money. For prices starting from 5,000 Dirhams upwards you can choose from a variety of different app types according to your budget.

Are there some practical ways I can use a mobile app to help my business?

The number of ways is limitless. We can suggest a few but the imagination can run really wild.

First, you can use your mobile app as a contact point for your customers. You can put up your contact details, location map, and most important products and services on offer. This represents the basics of the app development. It is a minor presence which all companies should absolutely have at this digital age.

Advanced mobile apps can be used as a customer service tool. For example you could allow ways for users to contact and complain about your customer service. Happy users can also praise and recommend your services. Good customers could post invaluable suggestions and feedback to help you improve your business system.

Another type of app can be used to sell for you. You could put your products and services online and allow sales to happen while people are on the move. 247.

If you are a restaurant owner, you could have a restaurant app where users can browse to your menu easily in comfort, get your contact details, see your hours of operation and give feedback. You could even allow them to book an order online for delivery. Imagine the convenience it offers to users looking for food online.

You could have for your brand, where your brand details are listed, the shops where the products are available are displayed easily with location maps and directions to each one of them. The app could post notifications of new product launches, competitions and offers. All these can help improve and expand your brand image, brand recall and also drive seals directly or indirectly.

A marketing team can have their own app talking to the server, making instant decisions like bookings and alerts to help improve efficiency of the unit. Sales team can have their sales app to help know which products in stock for sales, share their location with others and communicate with team members effectively.

As you can see the possibilities are endless. Give us a call today and let’s have a chat to know more about your business and discover ways your mobile app can help give a bigger impact to your business.

Are all apps the same?

No, there are many different types of apps available. The two dominant operating system in Mobile phone today are Android and iOS. There are many other players like Blackberry, Windows, Symbian etc but their market shares are either much smaller or on the decline. It is expensive to develop different apps for all platforms and time-consuming as well, so we would suggest that you develop apps for market leaders Android and iOS only.

Smartphone and tablet usage is shooting up at an incredible rate. More and more users go online using their smartphones and tablets.

That way your users can easily visit your website using their smartphone when they are on the move and get the information they need, be it your contact details, location map or your main products and services.

Of course we have to compromise a lot. We won’t have fancy animation. We also cannot have a full fledged website and tons of pages. But these are not required to be viewed on the smartphone. The mobile website should be a neat summary of your website, allowing users to access your most important content very quickly.
