With a focus on creating amazing apps, Fivestar is a growing influence in the mobile app sector for corporate business and regulated industries. As BYOD practices increase and businesses see the potential for mobile apps to improve internal business efficiencies, we continue to hone our expertise in these areas to deliver the best possible apps to SMEs and enterprise sized businesses.
Today in 2015, we see a strong future in mobile technology as smart phone applications continue to become more intelligent and diversify across different platforms such as iOS and Android. From our beginnings of developing desktop apps, to websites and then now to mobile apps, we have developed a very well rounded set of skills and expert understanding of software and backend integration across many platforms.
We specialise in creating high quality mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, Android and Android tablets. With a tight knit team of dedicated in-house designers, developers and project managers, we consistently deliver polished and engaging apps that excel beyond the expectations of our clients.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our apps and offer bespoke services for different business needs. Whether you need a simple utility app, a time sheet app integrated with your company’s database or a complex augmented reality app to advertise a new product, we can help you turn your app idea into a reality.
We think beyond the scope of projects. We consider the scalability and future-proofing of the apps we make, to save you money and time in the future.
We are always looking for ways to use the latest innovative technology and mobile functionality (like iBeacons for example) to deliver beyond our client’s expectations.
Working many years in software development across different platforms has given our development team expertise in understanding complex backend integration.
We always aim to make a perfect user experience with every app we create. We know how to design apps to maximise user retention and user satisfaction.
Creating a fluid user experience in your app is always a priority for us. We use this stage to focus on the navigation and features of the app, so that we know we have something that will maximise user retention and satisfaction. We use professional mockup tools to expedite this process.
If there are any particular branding guidelines for your company, we will blend them into the app design at this stage while still adhering to the platform conventions of typical mobile apps. This way, the app will feel familiar for new users and make adoption much more successful.
We are able to develop apps natively or cross platform, depending on the requirements of your app. We can advise you on the most effective solution to work with your budget and time schedule. Our specialised development workflow creates the most efficient code possible.
You will have the opportunity to test the app yourself during development and give us feedback until you are completely happy with the product. We use a distribution tool called ‘Testflight’ which allows us to easily install your work-in-progress app on your device over the internet.
Whether you are distributing your app internally within your company, or you are deploying it on to the app marketplaces, we can help you achieve this as smoothly as possible. If you are planning on using MDM to distribute your app, we can also help you with this process and share our experience and expertise in this area.
We offer a very generous grace period of 90 days after your app is deployed to fix any bugs that appear which are a direct result of our development. We will also redeploy your app at no extra charge.
