What to expect?
On average, people spend more than 90% of their smartphone time using apps, but having that alone as the reason to build an app is a bit like deciding to become a supermarket because people buy groceries.
The number of smartphone users is still steadily increasing. We are firmly in a mobile world, but many organisations are still working to ensure this incredibly powerful tool is being used in the right way to support their business.
Nowhere is that having more of an impact than in the world of retail, so as the leading independent mobile app builder in Europe, Apadmi invites you to our next event 'Maximising mobile: How apps are driving retail success'. Join us for an evening of insight from a collection of retailers and digital change-makers to find out just what are your customers and future customers doing on their phones.
