User-centered design starts with determining who the end user is and what they do. Consider the user’s role and the tasks they perform within that role. How can a mobile app help that user perform their work? Replacing manual, paper-based processes with real-time mobile transactions can save hours a day for users in any role that requires integrating information into the back office. And with a thorough understanding of user roles, you can adapt the application through role-based features to optimize the experience for your team.
Building an effective enterprise mobile application begins with designing the right app for your business, down to the work environment, user, device and the task at hand. Have you considered what it will take to empower your team to complete tasks with the end-to-end supply chain visibility that’s enabled by mobile execution?

Our new infographic will walk you through some of the UX considerations to evaluate before you build.
Properly establishing the user experience of the mobile app can help to ensure users’ needs are met while getting the best use—and intended benefit—out of the investment.

An effective app requires an investment of time and resources to create a tool that will make it easier and faster for people do their jobs, and do them well. It all starts with business or process owners establishing the project scope with some thorough requirements gathering. We’ve put together a list of six things to consider so you can build a successful app.
