GoodFirms also conducts an Interview Series with IT C-Level Executives to help businesses to choose the right software development vendor.

The following information is an extract from the conversation with GoodFirms specialist.

Please introduce your company and give a brief statement about your role within the company?

SolveIt is a full-cycle software development company. We are engaged in the creation of mobile and web-based solutions for businesses. The main focus is on native solutions for iOS and Android. Since 2016, we are creating software solutions for companies working in the field of logistics, transportation, and delivery; healthcare industries; IPTV and streaming services; e-learning services.

Working with businesses of all sizes, SolveIt provides complex solutions designed to achieve your goals with impactful, industry-specific, and revenue-generating software.

As a CEO and Founder at SolveIt, I am responsible for crucial decisions, long-term development strategies, and overall company performance.

What is your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/outsourcing?

To provide top-notch service, we have an in house team of specialists comprising of business analysts, project managers, UX/UI designers, software engineers, quality assurance specialists. This ensures timely delivery of services and cuts down the chances of miscommunication.

What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?

We are catering to a wide range of industries. We get a lot of requests from the logistics and transportation industry, so now SolveIt has extensive expertise and ready-made solutions in this domain. We’ve earned a reputation as a reliable solution provider for Healthcare Industry (especially dental centers), Fintech Industry, Educational Industry, Gambling Industry, and MVP Development.

Along with that, SolveIt has experience in creating a software solution for offline poker club. We’ve been working with the largest poker club in Belarus – Zett, for the last three years and created a successful solution, which improved the club’s overall performance.

Our engineers, who are the pillars of the organization, are capable of creating software for different platforms – mobile, web, tablets, smartwatches, TV, as well as IoT-based solutions.

So, as you see, a wide range of our specialists’ technical skills creates a possibility to cater to any size project from a wide range of domain verticals.

Our clients often return for maintenance and support. We take pride in stating that we partnered for creating one part of their project — for example, design or MVP. But during the process, they decided to finish the whole project with us.

Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app.

The time frame of mobile app development is determining by the complexity of the project. It’s also remarkable how much has the client done so far. Is his project idea new or there exists such an app? Does the client has a design, or we have to create? Does the client has a technical specification for his project? How many feature the app needs? Or will it be MVP with further feature adding?

We usually ask our clients such questions before starting the project. Communication is the crucial parameter here – defining the client’s requirements and desire, in the beginning, enables a seamless flow of the development.

Which platform do you suggest your clients begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?

It solely depends upon the mentioned key parameters. If you are developing an app for the Asian market, we suggest Android. On the other hand, if your target market is North America and Western Europe, then iOS is a better option.

Nonetheless, having a mobile app for both operating systems is essential and necessary for every business, despite the industry.

Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build an app? What are your recommendations?

SolveIt is “evangelist” of native mobile development. We are using Swift/Objective-C for iOS and Kotlin/Java for Android.

Native development is not the cheapest way to create an app, but it’s worth it. They work swiftly and smoothly without any freezing or loading delays. We can customize design, interactions, and animations in the native app development. Hence, all the design components load without delay. Integration of new features is quick and easy. If you employ native app development, you can continue to support older OS versions and adapt the published app for new ones.

If you want to create an aesthetically pleasing product that leverages mobile device capabilities and stands out from competitors, you must go for native mobile development.
