For any piece of technology – but especially for software products – flexibility is a backbone feature. The requirements of a business dictate which technology can be used, what is a good fit and where are the limits. Inability to deliver or to satisfy a critical need might mean an extended search for the right option, costing time, resources and money.
Custom colors, images and logos? Complex business logic running offline? Location tracking sending data in real time? Dynamic maps showing records or routes? Flexible navigation within the application? Custom components not envisioned by the product developers? “You name it! Businesses come up with such a wide variety of needs that any software product faces a lot of challenges,” Juraj confirmed.
Imagine a field service operation servicing a specific type of machines. These machines display readings – values that the technician needs to enter to the mobile app. But the machine displays the values in a special way, in sort of a grid. It would be best, if the user of the mobile app could also enter the values in a grid, to avoid errors.
“Resco’s standard user interface offers a couple of ways to approach this problem, but none of them would be exactly copying the interface of the machine. What can you do? Create a custom HTML page that looks the same as the one used by the machine and insert it into the mobile app.”
“We’ve used this approach ourselves a couple of times. For example, for the Eat with Resco app which allowed attendees of the Microsoft Inspire conference to book a meeting with Resco and order their lunch through the app – utilizing a unique, dedicated user interface, completely different from the standard Resco design.
