Applied Visions was founded in 1987 by Frank Zinghini. Since then, we’ve grown into a family of companies, including Jybe Mobile and Software Design Solutions. We blend our substantial experience in software development with our knowledge of how to make an application that actually makes money.
Web Application Development
One of the many services we offer here at Applied Visions is web application development. This also means we develop software for the Cloud. More and more businesses that have never had to juggle application development before need suddenly need to think about the Cloud. Many business owners, annoyed are tempted to throw up their hands and say, does it really matter?
Web Application Development is important: Here’s why
Most of us are now working out in the cloud. Investment in cloud technology is increasing at a constant pace. And all of us use dozens of sites and web-based apps every day. What’s surprising is how many of them – even after all these years – fail to meet customer expectations. There are certain conventions, like where the login link is on a site (it should be in the upper right). These conventions are a baseline. The more conventional you are, the more your users will think, “Ah, yes, I know what to do” – and they’ll just do it. Deviate from these conventions and they will think, “What am I supposed to do now? It’s not obvious. Never mind.”
Why does that matter so much, in terms of commercial success? Web apps and cloud apps are often purchased on the basis of a two-minute trial. Potential buyers give the application a 2-minute test, and if they don’t like what they see, that’s it, you’re done. That’s why usability is such a big deal here at Applied Visions, and why we focus from the start on what customers want to do with your application.
Cloud and web application development also has special requirements – like “working even when the Internet or cell signal is down.” How much of the app and its data should be stored on the local device? How much should be stored – and working – out in the cloud?
