For our customers and partners, we build the following solutions
Enterprise portal solutions are very often the first step the companies take in their digital transformation. Enterprise portal is a prepackaged software kit that enterprises can use to facilitate access to important systems and processes on a user interface. The portal creates personalized, shared access to information, expertise and applications with an excellent customer experience, tailored to users’ needs. On top of standard services such as security, reporting, content management, collaboration and business intelligence, you usually get customized features adapted to your individual requirements.
In order to meet the customer requirements while building an enterprise portal:
- We use our Wyatt framework in order to speed up the development of the software
- We apply an agile and methodical approach that achieves visible results in a short time
- We use our in-depth technology and business know-how
We guide our customers through the following phases while building a bespoke enterprise portal:
- Business consulting – user experience strategies, process analysis and optimization and project planning
- Solution delivery – requirement engineering of system architectures and the implementation of the complete solution and integration into the customer’s IT ecosystem
- Portal services – continuous delivery, hosting and support, operation and maintenance
These days Web applications are standard, but there are millions of desktop applications running in the companies. And still, sometimes customers still want us to build desktop systems for them.
There has been a long debate – Web applications vs. desktop applications, and there is a long list of cons & pros for each of them. But we like that one most: At front, people using the desktop applications spend on average 34% more time on the application that those using the Web version 🙂
At EARP we develop amazing Web applications for our customers, but still some of our customers have asked us to build desktop systems with the use of technologies such as Java Swing, RCP/SWT or Electron. These frontends are perfect for their intranet solutions – they are very user friendly, are capable of running offline, and may provide better performance, because application processing is done on the local machine.
As businesses face growth and expansion, they also face the problem of interconnecting with external systems as well as integration of their legacy systems with new technologies, Web applications, mobile applications as well as in the cloud.
Legacy systems can be a maintenance nightmare, but they contain huge amounts of information that support processes crucial to your business. The fastest way to make this information available to your users is to leverage what you already have and build a front-end system on top of your legacy system.
We are skilled in connecting software to various ERP systems, starting from SAP and ending with specialised industry solutions like GES or BlueEagle for the German housing market.
Apart from ERP systems, we integrate our customers’ software with any other external applications, applying Web Services, RESTful services, or messaging systems.
Why to go hybrid instead of going for native apps? The biggest benefit of going for hybrid apps – you do not have to develop and maintain separate code bases for different mobile platforms; instead – you can develop just one version and let your hybrid framework of choice do the heavy lifting and ensure that everything will work flawlessly. This directly leads to lower cost of development and, potentially, greater revenue. Many small businesses wouldn’t be able to afford to target all major mobile platforms, if there wasn’t the option to do so with a hybrid framework.
However, depending on an app type, sometimes there might be a cost of going for a hybrid app. There is a slight difference in the performance comparing to native apps and if you have a complicated app talking to external devices – you might want to go for a native app to be sure to access all hardware features of your mobile devices.
Native mobile apps are applications that are installed on the mobile device via an application store (such as Google Play for android platform or Apple’s App Store for the iOS platform). A native mobile app is built for a particular device and its operating system, and thereby has the ability to access device-specific hardware and software, meaning that, the native apps can interact and take advantage of the latest technology available on mobile devices. Native app development means using the native programming languages of the devices to build the app. We develop apps for iOS and Android.
The best mobile experiences require a robust back-end foundation. Our teams have years of experience integrating with back-end and middleware systems.
