Mobile application development takes time. Time to design. Time to test. Time to launch.
Especially apps designed to facilitate business processes. And because business process apps are especially complex and time intensive at every stage of development, they can be notoriously late launching.
Unless they are applications required by Zurvita™ and designed by Smart Office Solutions™.
Zurvita™ is a leader in the development and marketing of nutritional supplements direct marketed to several hundred thousand customers in more than half a dozen countries.
For more than 15 years, Smart Office Solutions™ has created communications tools and technologies to make direct selling companies such as Zurvita™ more efficient in directing and motivating large independent sales organizations.
Zurvita™ Vice President of Marketing Carl Waters says, “The folks at Smart Office have earned a reputation for knowing our industry and being a reliable partner. So, we were confident in their ability to provide us a mobile application that would be state-of-the-art. But I’ve got to admit: we were anxious about the deadline.” Zurvita™ had an international conference 45 days away, and the mobile application had to be ready for launch and demonstration at that event. If it wasn’t, nearly 4,000 Independent Consultants from around the world would be very disappointed.
And Zurvita™ had been disappointed in the past, having launched an app that was not widely accepted by their Independent Consultants because of its lack of user friendliness. “And we are devoted to our Consultants,” says Zurvita™ co-CEO Mark Jarvis. “So, we knew we had to come up with an application that was more user friendly, more functional, and a true business-building tool.”
Smart Office Solutions™. Bennett, Smart Office Senior Vice President of Global Sales, says that “normally 90 days is the minimum requirement for deployment of a mobile application. But Zurvita™ has an experienced management team, deep knowledge of its customers and Consultants, and we knew we could do it!”
The result of that collaboration is ZMobile™, a customization of the Smart Office mobile application (SmartMobile™) developed specifically for direct sellers. Mike Bennett says, “Already having developed an app with a feature set sensitive to the requirements of direct selling was essential to our deadline performance.”
ZMobile™ can be downloaded to any Android or Apple iOS smart phone and provides mobile onboard functionality previously available only online.
