Mobile App Development
Native App Development
Best in class performance, Smooth user experience, Superior access to deviceside capabilities like GPS, camera But High cost of development and
HTML5 (Web) App Development
Are generalized for multiple platforms and not installed locally but made
available over the Internet through a browser. Performance is not as smooth as
native , less secure and does not leverage every OS feature or API
Hybrid App Development
Best of both worlds (Native and Web Application). Reduces mobile application
cost and enables access to device-side functionality. . Performance is not as
smooth as native The user experience (performance) is not uniform across
different OS and device models.
Enterprise grade solution framework for scalable, reliable and complex mobility
solutions. Provides synchronization, data wipe, security, scalability , device
monitoring features
Hybrid VS Native
Hybrid ( Web Kit)
Independent app for each

Web service API
Backend server
User Authentication : Application will establish secured connection with the server using HTTPS and
authenticate with the server.
Offline Mode : Application will be capable to update/add data and use the previously fetched data
even in absence of network connectivity.
Data Synchronization : When the network connectivity is resumed, The mobile application will submit
the data to the backend server using Backend web service API.

Mobien - iNotify (Overview)
Increase productivity and effectiveness of merchandising audit
Manufacturers need increased visibility into merchandising at a shelf level.
• Is merchandise displayed at correct price? Does the display conform to
• Are competitor’s activities impacting promotion success?
• While in-store visual merchandising audits are conducted, labor costs are high
and delays in getting data.
• The solution is on Android, Symbian & blackberry platform
• With a combination of a mobile app based on iNotify framework, coupled with native mobile
camera and barcode/ QR code scanning capability,
iNotify improves data collection from the field and transfers to central IT systems faster.
Business benefits
Improve effectiveness and consistency of promotional activities
Accurate merchandising audits
Ensure Shelf and display compliance
Improve competitive Intelligence
Mobile Panel Management
Enabling & managing ad-hoc surveys using smartphones. Managing all consumers (panelist)for
taking ad-hoc surveys.
Job shortlisting by his/her preferenceJobs accessibility by area preferences e.g. within 5 miles from the
residence of the panelist
Jobs meeting minimum threshold of remuneration as preferred by the
Managing the entire survey right from the notification of jobs to data collection and redemption
of points earned on survey completion.
Short turn-around-time to enable quick deployment of the solution
• Developed a structured solution using a combination of Web Views and Native Mobile
application, XML Web Services and Database server with Transact-SQL to provide data in real
time to the device.
Along-with data availability, the native mobile application were able to provide location details
of the mobile application using Native GPS details of the device and thereby filtration of the
data fetched from central server using web views.
Mobile Panel Management
• Device Push Notification- Notifications to the panelist basis their job preference which the panelist can
chose to accept or reject
Camera Integration- to aid the data collection process and also adding credibility to data.
GPS integration-To identify and facilitate movements of the user, which further can be used for further
Survey details: From project briefing to survey completion.
Point Redemption: Facility to redeem points earned on survey completion by panelist.
• Real time data collection and panel management.
• Complete control of activities right from push notification to the redemption of survey points for panelist
• With a planned roadmap of execution, Datamatics helped the client to develop the requirement within a
very short span of time.
Data collected can be used for further analysis
