E-commerce is something that we pretty much all use.
With the growth of mobile, more and more e-commerce is coming through apps.
With a strong experience in both mobile and web apps, we are excited to grow your e-commerce business with you.
E-commerce is something that we pretty much all use. Be it Amazon, Asos, eBay or Uber Eats, these are all well known examples of e-commerce businesses that expanded with mobile apps. With that said, there are some key factors that usually indicate the need to build an mCommerce (mobile commerce) app:
When do you need an E-Commerce app?
With customers ordering more and more online, repeat use can be streamlined and customised through an app. Be it scheduling orders in advance or quick one off orders with stored credentials.
If your business is outgrowing your ecommerce demand, an app will give your customers more streamlined and simpler ways to buy from you, as well as more ways to connect with your brand.
Another factor to consider is that with an app you can create an environment for mobile users that will be faster and (should) be easier to use than a website. This ultimately comes down to the UX and build quality.
Delivering a personalised experience allows for a business to better understand its users. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, apps can better understand user needs and make smart suggestions.
Additional features such as augmented reality, machine learning and artificial intelligence can elevate your ecommerce experience and deliver users more ways in which they can interact with products or services.
QR codes and app clips allow for more ways for users to quickly discover your app and brand. Push notifications and loyalty programmes increase opportunities to keep users engaged.
What makes a GREAT E-Commerce app?
Delivering a simple and intuitive UI (user interface) / UX (user experience) will ensure users have a positive experience and build your user retention.
Logins are a huge differentiating factor compared to mobile websites. Apps give your users the ability to login within seconds by using their fingerprints or face (biometric scans).
Accepting payments through an app means that your users can keep their credentials saved or use another secure method such as Apple Pay to quickly transact.
Ensuring that your app is designed for repeat use and not just for one-off purchases means that users will continue to engage with your brand.
Building apps that millions of people love is what we are all about. By focusing on what the user actually wants, your app will be more likely to succeed.
Scaling your app over time gives you flexibility to implement future features that will support your long-term strategy.
We can integrate your existing e-commerce platform using APIs to pull the data into your e-commerce app. We can of course also build a fresh platform if your business is looking for a new e-commerce solution. We support Shopify, Magento and Shopify as well as bespoke integrations.
We have worked with a range of well known brands and growing start-ups to develop mCommerce apps that utilise both existing and bespoke platforms. We have been trusted by some incredible brands to deliver apps. By designing beautiful and functional UI/UX and implementing features that users will genuinely love, we help businesses to grow their e-commerce offering through powerful mCommerce apps across iOS, Android and the web.
They have been at the centre of our core asset, helping to turn the concept into a reality.

BUILDING & SCALING
E-commerce is something that we pretty much all use. Amazon, eBay, Asos, these are all standard names in the game at this point, but how does a business grow and scale with e-commerce?
SPEED & ADAPTABILITY
Pivoting a business is a crucial part of adapting to change in a given climate. It opens up further revenue streams, protects against a loss in market share from competitors and gives consumers a reason to stay loyal.
