I see a lot of mobile developers complaining about their revenues nowadays. The mobile developers that were formerly selling their high-quality apps for 50-100$ now cannot sell their apps above couple of bucks. Where is the problem? The problem is that with the sudden boom of Android market and AppStore an enormous amount of mobile developers from China and India are flooding the market with low-quality cheap apps. This produces a large competition with unattractive low margin. But I tell you something. There is still a huge blue ocean of profit that can be made in mobile industry. The part of it is still hidden in the Microsoft Dynamics ERP segment.
What is the ERP??
Enterprise Resource Planning is a software solution that helps to integrate accounting, finance, manufacturing, project, retail, logistics and all supply management chain needs.
Microsoft has 4 ERP servers that are being widely used:
The average 3-year cost of Microsoft Dynamics AX deployment is 2.400.000USD that is followed by really high maintenance costs. Only very solvent companies can afford such solution.
Here is the best part – there is no mobile solution available for neither of Dynamics AX, NAV, GP or SL. Except one. The Resco MobileERP.
Resco MobileERP is a fine-tuned solution for Microsoft Dynamics ERP servers.
The solution comes with:
- Ready application with full source code
- Built-in synchronization
- Studio tools with designers, libraries, components and controls.
The application works in offline mode and stores data in its own SQL CE database. The synchronization is done on-demand which has several advantages – the app is much more responsive and user can access his data anywhere even without the internet connection. The Studio is embedded into Visual Studio and can be used to add any functionality to provided application. The ERP customers often need to add functionality. For instance somebody wants the mobile app for warehouse management, other one needs an app for sales people who visit their customers. Also a very popular use is nowadays in the hospitals, logistics and many other industries.
The mobile application comes with a full source code. It is a single solution for multiple platforms. Out of the box you get many predefined entities ready for synchronization (Customers, Accounts, Services…). You don’t have to write a single line of code if you want to customize the app. New entities can be added using designers that automatically generate code for you.
Appearance of the forms, lists and details can be changed using visual designers directly included in Visual Studio (in form of packages). It is an easy way to customize your app.
Resco Mobile ERP supports 4 platforms:
- Windows Mobile
- Windows Phone
- iOS (iPhone, iPad)
Only 1 project is always used for all platforms. Resco ERP Studio will do the rest for you.
Here are the key ingredients if you want to earn a large pile of CA$H:
- Visual Studio
- .NET and C# skills
- Resco MobileERP
