If you read my earlier blog on eCommerce to mCommerce you will come to know about importance of having mobile commerce, in this blog I am going to explain you mobile commerce solution provided by my company.

When you need Mobile Website and When you need Mobile Application?

There is a difference between mobile website and mobile application. Mobile website is something which user can directly open in the browser and access data of the website.  Mobile application is something which user has to download from the stores and install it and then they can access it.

  • Mobile website is instantly available.
  • It can be viewed on almost all the mobile devices.
  • One can find mobile website easily with search engines.
  • Mobile website can be shared easily.
  • Mobile website can act as mobile application as well.

Following are some advantages of mobile application.

  • One can use mobile application offline.
  • One can personalize application.
  • When you need hardware support.

What we offer?

Our solution converts your online store (your eCommerce website) to mobile website/application by using the facilities and services of your existing eCommerce platform. We build a separate mobile website for your store. That means you can manage your website and mobile website with same admin panel offered by your eCommerce platform. All the changes in your store will be available on both the websites.

Why we give you separate mobile website?

As we know the some of the eCommerce platform gives you mobile or responsive theme. These themes are specially designed for mobile screens. But those themes are not 100% user friendly and touch friendly. Also it just gives good look to your mobile website, but in terms of server communication and data usage, it's not up to mark. As for each request your page is refreshed and it go to server and render new page again. This may be slow in some devices depending your network strength. Also it consumes more bandwidth which may not be good for some users. Sometimes it slow down performance in some of the devices as all the device browsers do not have enough computing power. So with responsive theme your site is not 100% user friendly on mobile devices.

What we offer is site built with JavaScript framework. It's a HTML 5 based framework with advanced layout engines. It has a controls with rich user interface. Site build with this framework works very well on the mobile devices at it has on demand rendering. It will crate layout only when it's required, that improves the performance. Once this site is loaded, it will communicate with server only for data. There is no page refresh. Everything works with Ajax based services and only when it's required. Using this approach your data usage will be reduced and site navigation will be much faster. Application built with this framework has look and feel like native application. This is one more benefit, as normally user likes native designs much. Also with this framework you get offline storage was well your website can work offline as well. Also this website can be converted to mobile application easily and with minimum efforts. So it's very cost effective solution. With one mobile website, you also get mobile application.

How does backend works on your existing store?

For back end we use web services and those web services uses your existing platform data. So whatever your platform is web services fetch data from it and send data back to mobile website or application. Our solution is not like predefined and fully developed product as we understand that each customer have their unique requirements and needs.
