5. After service is a necessary part of development. How do you provide customer support to your client?
Great service is the foundation of a sustainable business. It helps increase customer acquisition, and reduces attrition.
Providing excellent customer service starts with a genuine desire to delight your customers, but you also have to think beyond selling your products or services. We consider the cumulative experience of our customers when they visit our website, what they think and feel, and what you can do to make it better.
We make sure that our customer will feel comfortable while asking their queries and greet them after every transaction. Our employees understand the way they should talk to, interact with, and solve problems of customers. We listen to our customers as well as what they are communicating non-verbally and always send or give a quick response to them.
It's important to respond quickly to all inquiries. And of course, we never forget to ask customers for feedback after completing the discussion. Excellent customer service often comes down to consistently checking in with your customers and making sure they are happy or not.

The app revolution is being driven by an enormous range of new technologies that are blurring the boundaries between people, the internet and the physical world. It's a combination of the digital, physical and biological spheres.
Technology has transformed the way we live, work and relate to one another in the coming years, affecting entire industries and economies, and even challenging our conception of what it means to be human.

In the future, wearable technologies are expected to become an indispensable part of our daily life. This technology will be a milestone both for the daily life of people and the way of doing businesses of the companies in the future. The existing potential applications indicate that the future will be safer, and more entertaining with the wearable technologies
The current growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to enable another shift towards all industries like oil & gas, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, transportation, infrastructure, and retail. The IoT has made the human being lives straightforward, fast, easy and comfortable.
Today IoT devices are becoming a part of the mainstream of electronics culture and people are adopting them into their homes faster than ever. “By 2020, it is estimated that there will be up to 21 billion connected devices to the internet. IoT devices will be a huge part of how we interact with basic everyday objects”.
8. What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
2). Technology (Native or Hybrid)
3). The complexity of Features to be developed
4). QA (Testing)
5). Backend Integration
6). App Security (Data Security & other parameters)
7). UI/UX (Simple to Complex UI/UX also affects the cost of the mobile application).
9. What are the challenges you see in the outsourcing industry and how much you’re prepared to face those challenges?
Outsourcing industry involves contracting out business processes to some third-party either at a domestic or offshore level. No doubt, a successful, offshore outsourcing strategy can provide benefits and cost-savings methods for your company however, the unsuccessful offshore strategy can compromise the anticipated benefits.
The extensive growth of the industry and high level of competition in this domain comes with its own set of challenges like dealing with highly-demanding customers, tight budgets, customer satisfaction, crazy work hours and schedules these are some of the challenges faced by this industry.
To minimize those risks we define clear objectives because a successful outsourcing strategy starts with clearly defined objectives and measurable goals. After establishing our goals and objectives, we make sure whether they’re realistic or not as realistic expectations reflect all related costs. We understand and actively manage the risks associated with the offshore strategy. We prioritize and aggressively manage risks based on their expected impact.
We use an effective outsourcing model to meet the high-level objectives and particular goals.
Our outsourcing strategy truly represents the greatest value for a company and it also indicates the future risk due to the potential impact on the company if outsourcing objectives are not realized.
