APP DEVELOPMENT BELFAST
On a daily basis we are see more and more takeaways, cafes, and restaurants making the sensible decision of developing their own mobile app rather than using a directory app like Just Eat.
When a customer downloads Just Eat your takeaway is listed with a number of other takeaways, this creates competition for orders, where as if you have your own app and use your social media platforms to market it, you not only cut out the competition but also reduce the amount of money you pay out in commission.
Cynergy Tech develop state of the art food ordering apps built in the takeaways own branding, not only that but we don't charge the takeaway commission!
Our fee is £85 a month, no matter how much the app makes your business. Think about this, if you make £4000 via your own app with us you pay just £85, if you make the same £4000 with a directory app, and lets just say you only pay them 10% and not the usual 14% you are still loosing over £315 a month for no reason at all!
We have 9 takeaways who no longer use Just Eat, we have another 12 who are going to move away from them completely in the next 12 weeks as the commission they pay could pay a member of staffs wages per year!
Make the switch today, like so many others have already!
It seems as the months pass, every company in the UK are jumping on the Mobile App Bandwagon. This all good and well, but customers are only going to download so many Apps, so you have to market your App in a way that is unique to help you stand out from your competitor.
Below are a few tips that I give to all my clients, and as I tell them before they sign up with Cynergy Tech, an App will only be as successful as the owner in control of it.
1. Use your Facebook page to promote your app, 10 years ago businesses didn't have this platform, and now a lot of companies have thousands of followers, these are customers already interested in your service, so use your page to market your App to people who will benefit from using it.
2. Offer your customers something in the App they can't get anywhere else, for example if you own a takeaway and your trying to get customers of Just Eat and on to your App then offer something like '20% off all first time orders via our App'. Although don't just stop there, on a monthly basis give discounts via the App that will encourage your customers to keep using it, and this will encourage repeat business.
3. Never think because you have hit so many downloads that you should stop marketing your App, it is like everything else in advertising, you need to keep it up to date, fresh and unique, as your competitors are most likely doing the same.
4. When you launch your App do it with something special, not just a free £5 spend if you download, or something silly, I highly recommend buying something like a holiday, or concert tickets to giveaway for a lucky winner who downloads your app, you may be out of pocket at the start but the downloads, orders/purchases and customers you receive afterwards will pay you back tenfold.
So if you follow the tips above and you have an App that looks good, works well and is reliable, it will bring your company nothing but success, your customers are mobile, your business should be also.
Being an App developer is a rewarding job, I have the chance to give small to medium sized businesses an opportunity to develop their own mobile app, but at a cost that they can afford. Most small/medium sized business owners had a perception that they could not afford to get an app developed, and to be honest a few years ago this may have been reality, but with Cynergy Tech we pride ourselves on giving every company the opportunity to have their own branded Mobile App at a cost that can be managed, in line with their budget.
We do this because we are not just a company looking to make a quick buck, we are passionate about creating successful marketing strategies for our clients, and reaping the rewards with our customers.
As the owner of Cynergy Tech I worked in marketing for years, for advertising directories that wanted to take as much money from their customers as possible, and did not care whether it actually worked for them, my issue with that is I am an honest person, I didn't want to make up stats, click through rates and basically lie to people I had built up relationships with.
This is why with all our apps the clients get full control of their content, their stats, and we are completely transparent, and this is why we have 23 apps live in our first 12 months in business, with 20 reviews, and 20 five star reviews I may add.
So if you are interested in taking your business mobile, do it with a company that will make it work for you, and that will work with you to increase your exposure, your branding and your customer base.

What is a progressive web app and what makes it stand out from your normal mobile apps?
A Progressive Web App is also Fast, which is a great benefit as 53% of users will abandon a site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load! And once loaded, users expect them to be fast, so no freezing or lagging issues.
So all in all Progressive Web Apps are installable, and live on a users home screen, without the need to download from an app store. They offer the customer an immersive, full screen experience on all devices and can even re-engage users with web push notifications.
It is also important to understand that because a PWA does not need to be downloaded it takes up no memory on your customers phone, meaning a much less likely chance of your app being deleted.
Progressive Web Apps are the future of the App Market and we at Cynergy Tech are always working on the latest Technologies to ensure our clients are getting the future of marketing today!

Why pay more?
A lot of Takeaways use Just Eat, Hungry House and many other 3rd parties, and I can understand why, but if given the option would you not rather have your own mobile app?
Benefits of having your own app listed below:
- 85% of people use a mobile app every day
- Having your own app means you are not being shown in a list with your surrounding competitors.
- Lots of takeaways pay between 8-22% on their orders to 3rd parties, having your own app you pay no commission, just a set monthly fee.
- Having your own app means you can check how many people download it, how many people use it and you are in full control.
Cynergy Tech are a fast paced mobile app development company based in Belfast and we are here to give small businesses an opportunity to have their own unique app at a cost that is more competitive than the crazy fees paid with other companies.
66% of takeaway owners that use 3rd party sellers, felt its transaction fees are unfair!
53% are looking to leave if an alternative is provided!
The minimum 8% transaction fee is costing restauranteurs £725 per month on average. Compare that to the monthly charge of £85 a month Cynergy Tech charge for your own unique mobile app.
These 3rd parties are effectively a broker, matching customers to appropriate restaurants and takeaways. While this is a good way to acquire new customers, it has issues for the restaurant in the long run. They need something that is more clearly tied to the business itself, and not to the 3rd party. They need their own dedicated app. Such an app can enhance customer engagement, unhampered by the high monthly costs eating into profit. A dedicated app can sell a service, but more importantly it can keep the customer coming back for more.
If you want your own app, contact us and we will happily put together a free demo, all our apps are designed with your companies branding and needs, and are downloadable for free on Android and Apple
So we have covered the benefits of mobile app development for your business, now I want to cover why choosing us at Cynergy Tech may be the best decision you can make.
