Knowing when your business needs web or mobile applications?

Have you, as a business owner, ever thought about whether it's time for your business to have a web app or a mobile app? But before choosing to adopt such technology, there will undoubtedly be many considerations and analyses to be made to make an informed decision.



1. Increasing Number of Employees

If the number of employees in your company is growing, and your team is starting to struggle with managing attendance, leave, and other related tasks, this may be a sign that it's time for you to have an HR Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP). While there are various HR systems available, such as Mekari and HashMicro, investing in your own web app ERP may be more cost-effective in the long run.

2. Expanding Warehouse Size

If your business warehouse is growing, and the number of products is increasing, it may be time for you to have a mobile app for stocktaking. With a mobile app, you can simply scan the barcode of registered products, and the data will be automatically recorded in your system, making your business more efficient.

3. Decreasing Productivity

Productivity is crucial for any business, and even a slight decrease can impact overall company performance. If you notice a decline in productivity, it might be worth considering creating a web or mobile app to help boost your business's efficiency.

4. Negative Impact on Sales and Stock

Do you often encounter inventory discrepancies during stocktaking? This issue can lead to significant losses for the company. If you frequently face this problem, consider implementing an ERP system for stocktaking to minimize inventory discrepancies.

5. Remote Team Collaboration

If your company has grown to the point where you have teams in different locations, coordinating tasks becomes challenging. Coordinating and assigning tasks via WhatsApp may become cumbersome. If you've experienced these signs, it might be time for you to have your web app to facilitate coordination and task assignment among teams.


Don't rush into deciding to develop an application for your business, as creating an application involves substantial costs. Make sure you meet the key signs mentioned above before deciding to develop an application for your business.
