Mobile apps transform businesses in ways never imagined, streamlining business processes for happier, more productive employees. But, when poorly managed, app projects often wind up wasting time and draining resources.
How to be sure you’re pursuing the ideal mobile strategy while keeping mobile initiatives in lockstep with business goals?
Simple. Kickstart it.
We offer our services in unique, bite-sized engagements called Kickstarts—specifically designed to solve these situations and help get your initiatives off the ground—quickly, easily and without risk.
We offer 8 different Mobile Enterprise Kickstarts, each one focused on helping clients get up to speed at: building an Enterprise Mobile Roadmap, App Scoping & Prototype, Mobile UI/UX Design, Field Services Modernization, IT Strategy for Mobile, Mobile Center of Excellence planning and creation, and Emerging Technologies.
Additionally, we provide soup to nuts app development, testing and support, helping clients with app architecture and development, MCOE management, mobile app testing, and mobile app tier 2 & 3 support.
Large companies often feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of mobile app possibilities and have trouble knowing where to start when it comes to identifying the most significant game-changing features.
Our proven ideation process aligns expectations with business value and drivers, defines the metrics for success, and prioritizes scenarios and app concepts based on projected ROI and technology constraints to separate real business and customer value from minutia and noise.
The Enterprise Mobile Roadmap Kickstart takes you from ideation to action-plan in as little as two weeks. Our strategists will flesh-out and prioritize innovative app ideas based on revenue creation, profitability, customer engagement and brand enhancement. We measure perceived app value against infrastructure, risk, and cost to produce a tactical App Roadmap fine-tuned for business benefit and user adoption.
You’ll take away a realistic and tactical roadmap and timeline that provides business and IT with an action plan to accelerate the realization of your mobile app strategy.
Mobile app prototypes are an invaluable tool for validating a direction before spending big on developing the real-deal app. Our prototypes provide a gorgeous, pixel-perfect experience that follows a few key “happy-path” stories. How we get there is no accident.
Prototyping is particularly valuable in the case of enterprise apps, since these typically require multiple integrations to corporate data sources and platforms. Understanding early-on how the user interactions are going to work, and what data is needed (and when) saves a ton of time and effort when developing/adapting the APIs, web services or point-to-point integrations that will make the app work. In many cases, the development of such integrations can be more costly (both in terms of resources and time) than the development of the app itself.
From back-of-the-napkin to smartphone screen. This Kickstart provides a well-defined plan that combines business-need with a comprehensive implementation approach, identifying potential issues early-on to ensure a successful app strategy. Get your app off to a great start, with a functional prototype that can be instantly deployed on mobile devices. You’ve got a killer app idea. Now it’s time to make it fly.
Propelics specializes in app design and development for the enterprise. We devise mobile strategies and build mobile applications focused on reducing costs, increasing profits, and enhancing productivity for large companies. If our deep experience in enterprise mobile app design has taught us one thing, it is this: never assume to know how users are going to interact with your application. A perfect user experience isn’t accomplished in a single try. Perfection is a continuous process. Rather, we get a jump start on great UX through processes like A Day in the Life—accompanying your employees as they go about their daily tasks to ensure we create the most appropriate experience for each situation.

Creating an Enterprise Mobile Strategy is difficult. Creating a successful Enterprise Mobile Strategy without a Mobile Center of Excellence is almost impossible. A well-structured MCOE is the cornerstone of any enterprise mobile strategy and the only way to finally achieve a holistic approach to mobility.
A Mobile Center of Excellence is more than just the standardization of processes and tools—it’s a centralized body that ensures all mobile initiatives are in-keeping with the business’s larger objectives. Not an “ivory tower” but a hard-working team coordinating efforts to bring about change.
Avoid fragmented and redundant mobile projects, save time and effort, mitigate risk, and achieve greater consistency throughout the enterprise.
A Mobile Center of Excellence (MCOE) helps organizations avoid fragmented mobile projects and rogue apps. With an MCOE in place, your organization can embrace mobile holistically, mitigate risk, ensure regulatory compliance, and meet cross-organizational goals. This Kickstart identifies the charter, scope, reach, and structure of your MCOE. This includes the development of standards and governance along with a framework for championing your mobile solutions.
We’re no longer designing just for user-types, now we’re creating custom experiences for moments in time. These days, end-users expect their mobile devices to provide information at exactly the moment they need it.
Today’s Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) engines, Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) platforms, device sensors, wearables, iBeacons and personalization engines make mobile even more “context-aware” — in some cases even anticipating a user’s needs. Going forward, contextual intelligence and proximity-based services and interactions will be the standard by which all digital experiences are judged.
We’re no longer designing just for user-types, now we’re creating custom experiences for moments in time. These days, end-users expect devices to provide info at exactly the moment they need it. This Kickstart is designed to help IT and Business leaders wrap their heads around new technologies like wearables, AI and AR to discover their potential value in building contextually-intelligent mobile apps and create exciting new user experiences.
Creating great business apps means combining stunning user-centric design with the discipline of enterprise considerations. The app must offer focused, intuitive, contextual functionality while following the latest best practices in architecture, data integration and security.

Your world-class enterprise mobile app starts here.
Testing for mobile apps is very different than ‘traditional’ desktop application QA. Many of today’s companies simply aren’t equipped to handle all the specific triage issues unique to the mobile environment. These include Native OS compatibility, memory consumption, offline experience, and device (re)orientation and emulation, to name just a few. Thankfully, these are the kinds of challenges we at Propelics face every single day. Further, our QA Team is trained not just to test functionality but to analyze approved specs and functional requirements and to inquire further into specific elements where necessary to ensure the app is operating to its fullest potential.
Our QA team then composes use-case scenarios and designs a Test Plan which contains application scope, completion criteria, strategy and coverage, environmental and structural needs, along with task deadlines, risks and contingencies. From here, detailed Test Cases are scripted and executed, and any discovered defects are reported as tickets assigned to development and their progress is tracked to correction. When applicable, app metrics are delivered along with the fix, providing indisputable proof of a repair.
Propelics’ mobile testing services include:
· Mobile Testing Strategy
· Regression Testing
· System Functional & Non-Functional Testing
· System Integration Testing
· Test Automation Strategy, Script Development and Execution
· User Acceptance Testing
· UI/UX Testing
As with mobile testing, support for mobile applications carries its own unique challenges. But fear not. We’d never leave you hanging following your company’s app-release. We provide robust support, tackling all the possible failure points, nuances, and complexities involved with supporting mobile apps. And naturally, we’re happy to take-on any requests for enhancement.
The fact is, mobile possesses considerably more failure-points than typical enterprise web applications, including connectivity considerations, device and OS-specific issues.
App behavior can be impacted by something as seemingly innocuous as user-settings and preferences or by external forces such as MDM/MAM policy revisions or by the expiration of an app certificate. Further, each app acts as a stand-alone installation and users may install updates inconsistently. To complicate matters, administrators can’t simply remote into user devices to view a problem. And while individual apps may crash, outages—caused by a failure of either integration-services or host-systems—will impact the entire user base.
To face these many and complex challenges, Propelics offers enhancement tracking and prioritization along with proactive monitoring and validation of app-store comments, plus in-app feedback management and bug triage tiered for increased efficiency.
SLA Based Platform Support:
· Tier 2 and Tier 3 support
· 7x24x365 coverage available
