Custom web apps are a growing trend in today’s world, especially after going mostly virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Neeraj Mishra, author for The Crazy Programmer, “since COVID 19 hit, there’s been a 70% increase in digital activity.” When businesses were forced to shut down, people had to figure out ways to continue to operate and get things done. Many businesses went on to have their own web applications developed to help operate during the pandemic. Technology was the only thing that kept people connected, and many people truly started realizing the value of it. Now post-pandemic, businesses continue to use their custom applications to operate and do not plan on stopping anytime soon.
Communication, writing invoices, and coming up with quotes are all things that can take time and be a hassle. Many businesses today are developing their own custom applications that allow them to communicate with their partners & clients much easier, streamline their quotes, and send out many invoices in the matter of seconds. These are just a few examples of how custom web applications make working easier.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses needed to be creative if they wanted to continue to operate. Many businesses looked at their business model and how they approached it, and brainstormed ways to continue operations remotely.
Through video apps, chat apps, and custom apps for business operations, these businesses figured out how to work from anywhere and become even more efficient than they were while working in the office. This way of operating has continued even with businesses opening back up.
Sure, companies still used certain software applications before COVID such as HubSpot, Salesforce QuickBooks, etc. However, nobody really understood that you can integrate these popular applications with their own custom web apps.
APIs allow you to integrate popular apps with your applications. Many companies started doing just this during the pandemic to make things easier on them. When people realized how easy it could be to manage all their operations from one place, they knew custom web apps would be their new way of operating.
