The Engage Mobile Delivery Engine – Our Mobile Development Process
At Engage Mobile, we have some of the best development teams in the world. We develop products ranging from simple marketing apps to complex enterprise level apps and software that seamlessly integrates with legacy systems. We develop products for Apple iOS, Google Android and Windows Phone systems.
Our success lies both in our people and our mobile development process – The Engage Mobile Solution Delivery Engine. Our delivery engine process is unique to Engage Mobile and has four primary components:
Lean Approach – At Engage Mobile, we follow lean mobile software development principles to ensure small iterations of progress that can be constantly validated against client or user needs. We focus on making sure we are developing the right features to meet client needs. From our standpoint, there is no greater waste than efficiently developing the wrong thing. Learn more about the Engage Mobile lean approach to mobile development and mobile app development.
Transparency – We meet with our clients every two weeks to present our progress and confirm goals for the next two week window – our clients get constant visibility into what features are in development and how upcoming features or issues are being prioritized. This regular and continuous communication process ensures that the mobile development process stays on track both in terms of features / functionality and delivery date.

Flexibility - Deadlines change, market conditions change, priorities change. Regardless of what changes take place, we offer clients the flexibility to accelerate or slow development at any stage in the project to ensure the applications we’re building are best positioned to succeed.
Technology Agnostic / Requirements Focused - At Engage Mobile, we work to clearly understand the technical requirements your product needs – and then determine the optimal technology/programming language solution. Other mobile development companies have a certain programming skill set and try to force clients into that language – people that know native iOS try to sell native iOS solutions while people that know mobile Web try to sell mobile Web solutions. Engage Mobile has a dozen different programming teams with expertise in everything from native to hybrid to mobile Web and everything in-between. While other developers are trying to get you to buy whatever technical solution they happen to be selling, our only technology preference is to make sure we have the right solution to meet your needs.

At our core, we are an elite mobile software development company. We have some of the best developers in the world working on our mobile products every day. To ensure our clients are getting the best and most cost-effective solutions, we use the latest technologies, including:
Apple iOS Development
iOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. Originally released in 2007 for the iPhone and iPod Touch platforms, it has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. Unlike Microsoft’s Windows Phone (Windows CE) and Google’s Android, Apple does not license iOS for installation on non-Apple hardware.
- iPad mini
- iPod touch
- Apple TV
Google Android Development
Android is a Linux-based operating system designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Initially developed by Android, Inc., which Google backed financially and later bought in 2005, Android was unveiled in 2007 along with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance: a consortium of hardware, software, and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices. The first Android-powered phone was sold in October 2008.
- All Android-supported phones including Nexus, Samsung, etc.
- All Android Tablets

Mobile Web Development
In addition to mobile apps, we have teams that are focused on mobile Web development using HTML 5 and other mobile Web development tools. There are advantages and disadvantages to mobile Web development vs. mobile app development. We can work with you to determine which solution is best for your company and goals.
It is impossible to explain the details of such a complex set of technologies in a Web page. Contact us to find out how we can help you sort out the pros and cons of each in order to get your company moving forward with a mobile plan.
