Web application popularity has increased for numerous reasons. Businesses have seen the chance to provide real quality of life tools to both employees and customers. It almost doesn’t matter what sector of business you are in, web apps have a use case everywhere and can be developed for every niche.
A web application is a way to access data in a database over the internet. No installation is needed, and almost every browser can support them. Also, the backend power of servers means that heavy computations can be done even from a mobile device.
It’s not all about the data pulling and number crunching ability, businesses find communication benefits and collaboration along with management improvements too. We mentioned some benefits above, but some of the real benefits come from general process improvements.
Web apps are 24/7. Even during maintenance or updates, a web app can stay online for changes until the new version is released. Anything with a browser and an internet connection can access them from anywhere. Therefore, they offer a zero downtime solution to businesses where every second of delay could be crucial to operations.
They provide an instant way for teams and employees to connect and communicate with each other. So, they can be equipped with instant messaging functionality which opens up a lot of time saved from producing emails and waiting.
Web apps are powerful. They utilize servers for their backend, and all the computations and heavy lifting are done there instead of on the device using the web app. This provides a fast solution to data analysis, document transport and removes the need for multiple document versions as there can be a live version on the server.
Web apps are not just for internal use. They can provide just as much value to customers as they do for internal teams. This is great for those who are in more customer centric sectors. Being able to offer useful and accessible tools to customers brings benefits in itself.
A Reason to Return
A customer facing web application can offer a lot more than just information. They can provide some useful utility for customers, and tools are one of the reasons customers keep returning. It’s all about user experience, and if they have a good experience. If customers find something useful that helps them accomplish a task, they will be more inclined to return and use it again.
Marketing and Communication
This is beneficial to both customers and businesses. Implementing or updating a web app can be just as good as launching a whole new marketing campaign. Web apps offer utility and can be great for presenting users with a branded and easy tool to access. They aren’t only used for communications internally, they can be used for customers too.
