A mobility transformation project has a number of important stages, from pilot to full integration, implementation and support.

Appear’s model is to accompany customers at every step of their mobility transformation:

  • With so many available form factors, operating systems, add-ons and accessories, device selection has become a very challenging exercise. Appear has extensive experience in helping its clients to identify the “right” device based on a number of criteria such as ergonomics, battery requirements, device lifecycle, etc. 
  • Deploying mobile technologies throughout your organization requires a well thought out strategy. Appear can bring you critical insights early on, which are based on latest industry benchmarks and our knowledge. Appear is ready to help your organization to define a mobility roadmap, working with you, advising on how best to make changes in management activities to successfully implement mobile services to your workforce. 
  • A major challenge of mobility projects is to efficiently integrate mobile front-end applications with your existing back-end systems without creating major changes to your infrastructure or requiring back-end software upgrades. Appear’s substantial experience with a wide range of back-office systems can help you to implement a less costly integration strategy for your company. 
  • Mobile workforce projects require more expertise than simple “app” development. Appear has acquired core expertise in mobile enterprise applications and user interaction models over many years. We are here to help you to avoid the dangerous and often costly mistakes that are becoming increasingly common in the rush to mobilize business processes. 
  • Appear offers a comprehensive range of training, ensuring that both our partners and clients are fully equipped in how to maximize company investments in their mobile workforces. Appear’s training courses include general overviews, more advanced “train the trainer” programs and customised consulting.
