Mobile App Development

A well designed and developed mobile or tablet app can take your mission and your message to the next level

Apps for enterprise and everyday

OWA has extensive experience in developing, supporting and hosting public-facing mobile apps, available within app stores, and enterprise apps which are restricted for use within an organisation.

Based on your requirements we can recommend the most suitable approach as well as advising on the suitability of your app for app store release.

Our approach to mobile and tablet app wireframing, design and development ensures we provide our clients with apps using the latest technologies whilst retaining a user-friendly interface.

Hybrid and native apps

We develop apps for the Apple iOS and Google Android platforms.

We can also build progressive web apps which use the latest web technologies to behave like native mobile apps.

Our team of experts will work with you to ensure the latest device features are integrated with your mobile app.

Hybrid apps provide clients with the benefits of native apps but with a reduced overhead. These can be built to largely share the same code base meaning that development costs can be reduced up-front and throughout the lifetime of the app.

You can see examples of the mobile and tablet apps that we have developed for clients in our case studies.

Secure data integration

Our approach to mobile and tablet app development allows us to securely integrate data from back-office systems and websites, using a variety of techniques including application programming interfaces (APIs).

We understand the importance of keeping your mobile app, its integrations and associated data safe and secure.

Our team can provide expert advice and skills to ensure that data is only transferred using recognised industry standard secure technologies and appropriate resilience is also built into the processes.

Project management

Good communication is key to the success of any mobile app development and our project management approach draws upon this.

We are flexible in our outlook and happy to recommend an agile, waterfall or blended approach to fit on your requirements.

Proactive monthly support

Fully managed UK-based hosting

Support can be combined with a managed hosting arrangement at our UK-based data facilities, providing a single, joined-up service for your mobile and tablet apps.

Knowing exactly where your data is stored geographically is important – our hosting facility locations mean your data is fully protected by UK law and is GDPR compliant.

Protecting your system

Our hosting and support services are underpinned by a range of rigorous security measures.

Alongside monthly patching, as an OWASP member we offer regular manual testing of your mobile and tablet apps using OWASP standards to check for known exploits.
