What are the greatest obstacles and/or challenges that your business has faced? How have you and your business overcome them?
Since we started in 2012, one of the biggest challenges has been to keep up with the strong demand. We have invested heavily in developing our processes and people to deliver a consistent, streamlined solutions development experience for our customers.
While mobile apps have been around for few years, most companies are still trying to create a strategy on how to best leverage it for their customers and business. The companies that have successfully devised and executed this strategy are reaping its benefits. Mobile and tablet usage continues to rise and every business, small or large needs to really start thinking on how to best leverage this huge potential.
We treat this challenge as an opportunity and value proposition for working with us. When we talk to potential clients, we educate them on how the platforms differ, what does the app development process entail and most importantly, how does the solution deliver value to impact the bottom line for their customers.
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
Our work has been featured by Core77, Los Angeles Times, WPCentral.com, The Virginian Pilot and Inside Business. Our own apps have won international awards and have been featured at 2012 Mobile World Congress.
These recognition and kudos from our customers motivate us on a daily basis to deliver.
What do you see for the future of your business?
In a short span of just over 2 years, Techark has established itself as a strong contender in the app development space. What differentiates us is that we have developed more than 10 of our own mobile apps across iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
Over the next several years, mobile and cloud technologies will continue to revolutionize every business and that is where Techark is positioned and strives to execute.
