AppInstitute provides hyper-focused apps that concentrate on optimizing specific aspects of a business, such as loyalty, events, booking or retail.
The company offers entrepreneurs to pick-and-choose the solutions that are necessary to operate and grow their business. Along with the 24 new business types, which include Takeaways & Restaurants, Professional Services, Salons, Cafes, Charities and Estate Agents, AppInstitute also released a number of innovative new features designed to make the entering the app market easy for even the least tech-savvy small business owner.
An example is the new Facebook wizard, which pulls data from businesses’ Facebook pages, such as business information, image gallery and App icon images, and then suggests a template business type to use based on the Facebook business category. This makes it quicker and easier to get an app up and running with just a few clicks of a button.
A new inline browsing feature has also been added, in which companies simply drop a mobile compatible link into the app. Users can then click on the link to the booking platform and are led directly to the booking page, without ever having to leave the app. This streamlines the service and improves the overall customer experience.
In today’s mobile world, apps are essential part to any company. Navigating websites on mobile devices can be difficult and more than 85% of smartphone users stated they are more comfortable using simplistic apps than mobile websites.
However, apps can be expensive to develop and require technical expertise that is beyond many small business owners. AppInstitute aims to bridge this gap by making the power of apps accessible to enterprises of all sizes. “An app should be about reducing the friction for a specific service, whether that be making an order, sending a message or requesting a booking,” said AppInsitute CEO and Founder, Ian Naylor.
AppInstitute has recently announced the launch of 24 new business type solutions, offering high-quality, customer-focused apps for enterprises across all sizes and verticals. “We aim to keep things simple for the customer and business owner alike, and focus on creating high-quality ‘service enhancing’ apps that lower the barriers of connectivity between customers and a business.”
