Mobile App + Web Service in Back End


Rising Functionality and Data to Mobile Devices

Zonka Technologieshelps businesses establish mobile access to functionality and data provided by their back-end software. We deliver native mobile applications seamlessly connected to an online service, corporate business application or informational online resource.


Our mobile experience allows completing the objectives in a range of domains working with various data / content types and their combinations:

     Business data
     Media content
     1Financial data
     Geographical positioning data
     Data obtained from hardware devices


Context

We generally outline two major business models related to a mobile client-service solution. The distinction is made depending on what is in the center from the user’s perspective.


Extending User Experience and Service Access by Providing Mobile Client


Generally, a mobile client is the continuation of an existing proven online service or a corporate business application. It is aimed at adding value by improving user experience and availability options. The objectives are clear ― to create a competitive advantage for an e business web application or increase field operations’ efficiency for an enterprise mobility solution.
To succeed in this model the developer has to be very agile in understanding business priorities and logic and, from the technology perspective, experienced in application integration and data interchange.

Building End-to-end Solutions


Aligned Around Mobile Functionality

Fast-moving mobile technologies offer new opportunities and inspire innovative thinking. As opposed to the other model, here the main business value is delivered by the mobile solution itself, while a web service operating in the background is almost invisible to the user.

This actually means that the idea of a mobile app comes first but the implementation requires efforts not just to develop the mobile app but rather to design a seamless end-to-end solution that would include custom web service development, third-party software integration and innovative engineering.

We support both of the described models. Our experience in mobile development is supplemented with solid skills in web application development and application integration, andwide business expertise.

Mobile Web


What We Do

Here at Zonka Technologies we offer two types of services for those who look for fast and cost-effective presentation on mobile devices.
1. Designing and optimizing websites for mobile browsing
2. Mobile HTML5 applications with native-like user experience
Our customers always benefit from Zonka Technologies’s advanced web development experience.

Mobile Web Pros …

The true advantage of mobile web is its natural cross platform compatibility. This reduces costs for development of multiple mobile platforms on mobile front end significantly. Mobile web keeps all the benefits the web technology has comparing to fat client-server architecture.

     In most cases no mobile download / installation is required
     Easier to maintain, improve and update ― updates are immediately effective on the user’s side
     Supported on the absolute majority of smartphone devices
     In our practice a mobile web solution is often ordered complementary to an iOS native app (targeting two specific devices ― iPhone/iPad) to support a variety of
     Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry or Symbian smartphones
>      Mobile web is a perfect solution for online information resources such as news portals where simple navigation and one-way data flow (source to user) prevail.



… and Con

The major concern associated when talking about choosing mobile web is that you can miss the user experience provided by the device for native apps ― touch and slide navigation experience, feedback mechanics like vibration and sounds, gyroscope physics, etc.

To overcome (at least partially) this challenge Zonka Technologies delivers rich HTML5 mobile solutions including location based apps and solutions supporting offline mode.

Share your objectives with us ― and we will invent, design and launch the right solution for your specific situation.

Autonomous Mobile Applications


Defining Autonomous App

By autonomous applications we mean applications that themselves encapsulate the main business logic and functionality. Apps may communicate with a web server to exchange portions of data or with an app store to get updates but the kernel functionality is executed right on the mobile device. Good examples of such apps are offline games, compact business apps, mobile gadgets and utilities, etc.


Experience
     Augmented Reality
     Entertainment
     Advertising Games
    Task Management
     Mobile Utilities
     Mobile web is a perfect solution for online information resources such as news portals where simple navigation and one-way data flow (source to user) prevail.


Product Development Outsourcing


Zonka Technologies offers you a transparent approach to product development which is different from custom development in scheduling and delivery management. A mobile product that you will sell or leverage as an additional competitive advantage will take the most of our project management, development and quality assurance processes.
