Why Your Office Needs An Electronic Visitor Management System?

Today’s technology has the ability to make a big d [...]

Today’s technology has the ability to make a big difference in the way offices are run and administered. Mobile technology especially is leading the way for practical and innovative office applications. Take the case of an electronic visitor management system. It is fast replacing the traditional logbook based physical visitor management and registration process and adding layers of benefits to the way people use a lobby or reception area.

Right from the invitation to checkout, every stage of visitor management in the reception can now be digitized through a visitor management software. It literally transforms to a virtual receptionist for your office and efficiently manages all visitors and front desk touchpoints. Be it employees, clients, vendors, or temporary personnel, an electronic visitor management system ensures that only the approved people get access to your office or facility.

Challenges With Using Paper Logbooks

In recent times, office security has become a big priority for organizations and businesses. This necessitates an accurate, quick, and fail-safe system that takes away the below hassles of a traditional paper-based visitor entry system.

Slower
The traditional visitor sign-in process is slower and on average it takes around 3-4 minutes to identify the purpose of visit and redirect to the appropriate person within the office or building. As an outcome, the entire front office experience becomes unsatisfactory from the guest’s point of view leaving a poor first impression.
Poor response in emergency
Because of the many touch points (receptionist, front desk staff, visitors, IT / security staff), it becomes difficult to synchronize and execute a comprehensive evacuation plan. Imagine the chaos it will create when an actual emergency situation happens and the office’s occupants do not know how to respond to it.

Poor management of manual entries
Right from illegible signatures to loss of paper-based systems, there is a range of vulnerabilities that a paper-based visitor management system faces. This brings down the overall efficacy of the process and calls for a viable alternative that can overcome these limitations with effectively and affordably

Outdated feel
Your front desk is the first point to create an impression. With paper-based visitor entry management, it sends out a signal of your company running out-of-date operations. As evident, a paper-based visitor log system faces many issues. As such, an electronic visitor

Uber For Tow Trucks App – Get Roadside Assistance On Demand

It is pretty obvious that price will be the second [...]

Have you ever watched Seinfeld? If yes, then you probably know Cosmo Kramer, a person who is willing to live his life on the edge. The fun fact is that his car never breaks down. But most of us are not always that lucky.

If someone’s car breaks down or runs out of gas in the middle of the road then the person may either try to fix the issue himself or call for help. More often than not, the person would need his car to be towed to the nearest garage or get roadside assistance from a mechanic. But how would he contact a towing service provider or mechanic? The person may start with a simple Google search for towing/roadside assistance services. The results may not be very accurate or useful. It means he may have to contact a few operators to check which one has an available tow truck and can come in minimal time. But what about the cost?

It is pretty obvious that price will be the secondary concern for him, plus, he is not exactly in the best place to negotiate anyway. Tow truck operators know that too. In a majority of the cases, tow trucks have 100% close rate on the incoming calls for help.

Now let’s analyze the same situation from a different point of view.

A person is going somewhere and suddenly his car breaks down. Feeling stuck and getting anxious in such a situation is normal. But instead of worrying and asking other people for help, he takes out his mobile phone, uses a“tow truck or roadside assistance app”, chooses the exact service he needs (towing, dead battery, flat tire, etc.), shares the exact location and confirms the request in a few taps. A truck tows his car to the nearest garage, fixes his car and he is ready to head back to his destination.

So which way was more practical? The one with the app, right? Simple and seamless.

With the advancement in mobile technology and the rise of the on-demand app solutions, such apps bring a sigh of relief. Today, tow trucks or roadside assistance is available on-demand anytime and anywhere.

Mobile App Development Process – How Does an Idea Become an App?

The mobile app development process is not a walk i [...]

Smartphones have revolutionized the way we do business at a faster rate than we anticipated. Be it booking a travel ticket or arranging accommodation, ordering food or buying groceries and paying bills, mobile applications help us do the task conveniently and efficiently. Subsequently, the popularity of mobile apps is increasing at a swift pace.

With the number of smartphone users expected to reach 2.5 billion by 2019, the usage of mobile apps is sure to skyrocket in the coming years too. As per a market research study, the app economy will be worth 6.3 trillion by 2021.

On the other hand, having a mobile app has become more or less a necessity for businesses these days. It facilitates brand building, increases awareness, improves customer engagement, promotes revenue growth, just to name a few of its benefits.

To put in a nutshell, having an app opens up new opportunities for business growth. However, most of us lack awareness above the efforts that are needed to convert an app concept into pixels on a screen.

The mobile app development process is not a walk in the park. It requires a thoughtful and step-by-step approach in order to reap the desired benefits.

If you are contemplating building a mobile app, here is a comprehensive guide on the topic. To make it easier for you to understand, we have broken down the entire app development process into six key steps backed by rich visuals and an app development infographic.

List of Top Uber Bike Taxi Apps Across the World

Taxi booking and ride-sharing apps have completely [...]

Taxi booking and ride-sharing apps have completely revolutionized the way we use a cab to move from point A to point B. Now we can quickly hail a ride from an app from any place and track it in real-time. Cab rides can still be expensive and may not be the right medium for travel for certain times and places in a city due to challenges like traffic congestion and costs. Recently a new type of taxi segment, popularly called bike taxis have been gaining traction through either standalone bike taxi apps or as an additional option in already popular cab-hailing apps in Asian countries like Indonesia, Thailand, India, Vietnam, Cambodia.

What Are On-Demand Bike Taxi Apps?

Think of them as an Uber for motorbikes. You can book a bike instead of a car with bike taxi apps in the same way you hail a cab with Uber or Ola or Lyft. A bike rider will pick you up from your location, provide a helmet to wear for safety and payments can be made online.

Bike taxi startups and service providers either have their own fleet of bikes or allow bikers to share their trip route with others (Bike Pool) and receive pickup requests from an Uber driver type app.

Benefits Of On-demand Bike Taxi Services

There are two major factors that make bike taxis a more attractive option for commute than a typical cab ride.

Most of the bike taxi apps and services operate in countries with high population and congested roads. Bikes are better at navigating traffic jams and reach the destination quicker than a four-wheeler. If it takes 40 minutes to travel a distance by car, you will be able to cover it within 10 minutes on a bike.

The cost of traveling on a bike is much lesser than booking a cab due to some obvious reasons. Even though app powered carpooling and shuttle services have made travel more affordable, bike-based taxi rides can still be a cheaper commute option.

Many app based bike taxi startups and services are trying to capitalize on this. Below is a list of some of the most prominent bike taxi apps and services in Asia that have made on-demand bike rides a reality and popular among the public.

Ordering food has never been easier in 2019 in Ind [...]

here aren’t many things that our smartphones cannot do today. Whether it be booking a train ticket, a hotel room or our lunch, all it takes is a few simple taps.

Among all the on-demand services, food delivery is one of the fastest growing segments in India, with major players like Zomato serving as many as 1 million orders per day. It just can’t get bigger than that.

Deepinder Goyal, the founder of Zomato, India’s longest running food tech platform, estimates that the company may have as many as 40-50 million orders per day soon.  

Let’s deep dive into the list of popular food delivery apps in India as of 2019

Swiggy

Inspired by the motive to deliver food to the whole of India with no restrictions on the minimum order and tie-ups with multiple local restaurants, Swiggy is one of the most popular food delivery apps in India with over 1M+ downloads on Google Play Store alone.

Having its own delivery personnel rushing to ensure the customers get their food fresh, Swiggy focuses on timely deliveries.

Recent Update
They have recently taken over the Mumbai-based food delivery app Scootsy to further enhance their territory and the number of restaurants with which it has tie-ups.

Zomato

The first food delivery app to sweep the whole country by its then-exclusive services, Zomato isn’t exclusive to India anymore. It serves to multiple other nations as well, including Canada. Customers can access all the information they need about a restaurant starting from ratings, prices, reviews, scanned menus, timings, and more.

Zomato also provides reviews of restaurants, and you can check out real customer reviews to know if it’s a place worth going to.

Recent Update
Zomato has recently acquired Lucknow-based drone company TechEagle Innovations for an undisclosed amount. We may soon be able to see food deliveries made by autonomous drones for the first time in the country.

Get the Basics Right. Implement ASO – App Store Optimization

One of the main ways, the users find your app is via the search feature of the App Store. ASO – App Store Optimization – is a set of basic practices you should follow to make sure that your app shows up in the App Store search for the terms related to your app. Here are some tips related to ASO:

Choose the app title strategically

Your apps title is one of the most important ranking factors in the App Store search. Put some effort to get this right. Make sure that you have included a couple of most important category keywords in your app title. However you need to make sure that the keywords fit naturally in the title, otherwise, it will look spammy. Here are some samples of the titles of the apps which are in top 20 in their categories as of today.

Mobisoft Infotech – Your Right Tech Partner

Scaling up is way better when you have planned you [...]

In today’s competitive world, it’s very important to have a strong grip over yourself – Be it personally or professionally.If you are running or currently a part of a business and have to not only sustain but also grow in the market, then the only way is your conscience, persistence and adaptability to change.

Being a business owner you definitely cannot be a “one man army” and you need a pool of equally passionate team members to take your business to the next level. This team performs a significant role in envisioning and achieving the company goals & common objectives. Be it excelling at what you are doing already or foreseeing the bigger opportunities and threats coming your way, it’s imperative to keep your contingency plan ready.

Let us understand a few key areas that any business should consider to think of!  Either prior starting up a business or while running one. It’s never too late.

1 Competitive Analysis

Inspect what the market is doing v/s what your goal is. Perform a thorough business analysis of your current position in the market. Conduct ample research and come up with a solid and detailed business plan (sample).
If you’re not competitive yet, you’re not hustling enough. There is a market for everyone, you just need to present yourself well at the right time to the right people. Keep updating your techniques to make your business more advanced, creative and innovative along with multiple revenue channels.

Survival of the fittest! You can be, if you’re active.

2 IT

IT is an integral part of most of the companies to run their day-to-day business. You must ensure that this sector is taken care of meticulously. You could have an in-house IT team (could be expensive, if you’re a startup/ bootstrapped) OR partner with a company like Mobisoft Infotech who will guide you step by step, right from inception to the maintenance/ management of your services.   

Technology can either make you or break you.

3 Operations

Are you overstaffed or understaffed? If you are not in either of these situations, you’re doing fine. If not, then you must set proper KPIs and reporting metrics to ensure you’re not keeping these critical decisions to be made at the last moment.
Termination stage is not a good sign, alternatively hiring is. If you’re ramping up, it’s great and that means you are growing. Even though it may feel obvious but many companies fail due to not planning their operations well, and negligence in monitoring their employee delegates on time.

Scaling graph of the missed medical appointments due to the lack of suitable transportation channels exhibits the pressing need for NEMT. The aging population and invalid people irrespective of age are guaranteed customer base which assures strong chances of success in the NEMT industry. 

The consistent patterns and service requirements are stating the need for NEMT. The huge demand in the present would be soaring further in the future. It ensures that the present time is the most congenial to start NEMT business with proper planning, patience, and prompt action.

Initial Steps for Newcomers to Start NEMT Business:

The newcomers need to decide whether they want to have the sole proprietorship of the business, an LLC, or a joint venture. Along with this, the transportation licensing has to be done or validated. Beginners can get more information in this regard from the State Department of Health and Human Services.  The documentation, validation and license process could be time-consuming.
