Mobile apps have been making our lives a lot easier. The year 2014 proved to be an incredible year for these apps, as they just became an even more integral part of our day-to-day lives. Industries such as Food, Transportation, Retail, Medical, and many more have found their businesses booming, thanks to the uber cool apps that have successfully made these services even more accessible to the end user.
We have done a roundup of handpicked areas (industries) where on-demand services are going to get even bigger this year.
Household Services (Laundry, Plumber, Cleaner, Carpenter, Electrician, Beautician, and even a Locksmith!)
We all know how household work piles up and gives us shivers for getting them done in an old-school manner. Thanks to “home services apps” that have given us easy access to household service providers. Services such as Laundry, Plumber, Cleaner, Carpenter, Electrician, and even Locksmith, you name it and these apps provide an instant contact to them by a single tap. Now, users don’t really need to run behind their old service provider to come home and get stuff done, as now they can schedule these services by a single tap. Many companies in India, such as the HouseJoy have come up with an app that solves the household work related problems of the end user.
Going by the success rate that these apps are obtaining, we see a brighter 2016 for them as the user base might just double up.
Food Services (Retail, fresh produce, cooked food, and much more)
Food services have become an intrinsic part of modern times. Mobile apps such as FoodPanda, Swiggy, and many more have witnessed an incredible boom in the year 2015. These food ordering services had made restaurants much more accessible to the end user. Not only that, but retail apps such as Grofers, BigBasket, PepperTap, and many more have solved the daily consumer goods obtaining problem of users.
We at DebutInfotech, remember developing an app named “CropDots”, which was aimed at creating a community-driven network for local farmers, and organic enthusiasts to find, buy, and sell fresh, local online.
Given the way that food industry has forayed into a mobile app platform, we are positive about saying more of it in the year 2016.
