How many times have you been not able to obtain information or receive help from an app because of network issues or no network? We have become so dependent on our smart devices that when they don’t work, we feel helpless; like time has come to a halt and we are back in the 90s. In order for the user to retain your app, it should also work offline. Apps with GPS navigation, medical facilities/information and banking apps should be programmed in a way that they can also work offline. Some of the advantages of offline working apps include:

In this fast-paced tech world, the convenience of the user or customer is held in high regard. Hence, we’ve seen a number of e-commerce companies and apps that are dominating a space in the market. This disruption in the market has changed caused by e-commerce has had a direct impact on the freight industry. The shipments have become smaller but the number of shipments has grown immensely.
The majority of shipments aren’t enough for a Full Truck Load (FTL) and hence, more retailers are relying on less than truckload or Less Than Load (LTL) shipments to deliver the purchased product by the customer to their location. As per statistics, LTL vehicles only carry 1000 pounds worth of freight through a tedious route.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made quite a buzz in the technological field. It is a system that has the ability to mimic intelligent behaviour and make independent decisions based on the data gathered. The tasks that AI performs ideally should require human intelligence, such as situational or environmental analysis, problem-solving, reasoning, learning, and comprehending languages. Personal assistants such as Google Assistant and Siri are examples of AI mobile applications. As per the International Data Corporation, the global spending on AI systems will grow from $35.8 billion in 2019 to $79.2 billion in 2022.

There has been an upsurge in mobile technologies – not only in a person’s personal life, but also in business. In today’s time, being a part of the digital world is one of the top priorities for companies. One of the major steps to upgrading to mobile is the development of an enterprise mobile application.
What Does an Enterprise Application Development Mean?
Enterprise mobile applications make the process within the company easier, and at the same time create a comfortable climate to create interaction and involve the employees. It helps the business to operate more efficiently by providing turn-key solutions for several critical tasks:
The market is constantly churning out new mobile applications each day. With the ever-increasing demand of mobile applications, companies are trying to build mobile apps that are engaging, effective and that can transform their business. They want their next app to take the market by storm! However, there are times when the app curated in the mind cannot be developed by an in-house team – they require experts! Hence, many companies outsource their mobile app development rather than dumping it on their internal team. This not only saves time and money, but also ensures that the app is bought to life by experts, rather than a team that would work on a trial and error basis.
Outsourcing mobile apps most times is a good idea except in certain scenarios. Let’s take a look at 5 mistakes companies make while outsourcing mobile app development.
Mistake 1: Background Search of the Outsource Company
In a hurry to develop the app and outsource it, sometimes the company does not conduct a thorough background search. While researching the outsource company, one must gather the following data:
The insurance industry is a financial intermediary that plays a major part of the financial industry. Even though there has been a surge in purchasing and account insurances online, there is a huge part of the population that still prefers to take insurances through insurance brokers or visiting the insurance company personally. This results in the rise of paperwork and paper contracts which are prone to error and most often require human supervision. In short, the insurance involves consumers, brokers, insurers and sometimes even reinsurers – which results in a potential failure of loss of information, misinterpretation of policy and delay in settlement.
To cut these losses, giant insurance companies are switching to Blockchain technology. Why will the Blockchain technology help the insurance industry for the better? Blockchain is the ideal technology that can store records and data cryptographically. It helps build transparent operations built of trust and stability. According to a report in The SAP Digital Transformation Executive Study, the banking and the insurance industry is planning to double up their Blockchain investments by the year 2019. The industry wants to transform and streamline their processes via Blockchain and mitigate the challenges faced while data sharing, claim processing and frauds.
