Mobile design is probably the second thing any business thinks of (the first being functionality), before they head to make a mobile app. And rightly so. Lest you should commit the folly of mistaking design as just an ornamental aspect of a mobile app, we’d like to acquaint with the importance of design.
For starters, you must know that design has everything to do with user experience. Any goof-ups with design could mean ruining your users’ experience with your mobile app, increased app uninstalls, depleted revenues, and not to forget, a soiled brand reputation.
A sound mobile app strategy, thus, must focus on mobile app design, as much as on functionality. And we have more reasons than one for it.
Reasons to be Design Focused when You Make a Mobile App;
Here are 5 reasons why mobile app design should be at the center of any mobile app builder’s focus.
Making the First (and a lasting) Impression:
Design is the manifestation of the idea that will reach your users in the concrete form. With the attention span of the users going down constantly, all an app has, is three seconds to make it.
Expressive design; one that’s able to grab the users’ attention within seconds, is what your app needs to save itself from instant uninstall. Design is what will create the connection between your app and the user.
Keeping the User Riveted:
Congratulations for being able to hold the user, but you have a bigger challenge now - keeping them. Great design is all about predicting the habitual thinking patterns of target users; great design doesn’t let the user get distracted.
Elements as simple as displaying a personalised message while a page or page results load, can be a saving grace for you. Yes, it’s a part of design. The most famous example is the images of Amazon’s employees’ dogs appearing whenever there is a delay in loading results.
Supporting the Functionality:
The biggest function of design is to fulfil the purpose that a mobile app maker has at hand. Suppose, it is a fitness tracking app that you are building. Design is the visible part that will support the functionality.
Colors, fonts, user flow, accents, tones, screens, etc., will be designed such that they make the fitness app look and feel like one that your target audience finds not only useful but also interesting.
Helping the Users in Making a Decision:
Believe it or not, good design almost leads the user by the hand to make a decision in your favour. Any mobile app development company of a decent standing knows that user experience design dictates users’ actions and reactions in relation to the mobile app. Making decisions like choosing an option, completing an action, or even giving permissions, is made easy by good design.
In the absence of intelligent design, for example, host of permission messages before one can start using the app can be one of the biggest reasons why your app is uninstalled.
Branding Your Product/Company:
Last, but not the least, the design of your mobile app sets you apart as a brand. Look at Uber, WhatsApp; Instagram, all have made such big names for themselves not because they come with large fundings, but because they have terrific design that users love. Each carries its brand’s unique signature.

Every year as the number of patients increase, the healthcare industry, especially the traditional ones are facing a lot of challenges in managing inventory and paper files. Billing, discharge and claiming procedures have become very lengthy process that, lowers customer satisfaction levels. The hospital industry is currently going through a turbulent stage as most of the traditional hospitals are running on loss! Most of the hospitals are trying to find out solutions for this cost and time overrun.
A lot of non conventional and online services have placed health care centers with a traditional set up in very challenging position. Cutting down on operational costs and bringing up the quality levels are the main concerns faced by hospitals. The hospital industry is estimated to possess a thirty-six percentage potential in automation. But, a peculiar factor is that most of these hospitals were very much reluctant to make investments in RPA tools for areas other than treatments like claims, medical records and bills processing. But, the current situation has forced the healthcare industry to shift towards robotic process automation to provide efficient, trigger growth and diminish those challenges.
Robotic process automation in health care can be employed not just for treatment and diagnostics, but also for the front end, managerial and decision making roles. In short, more than one-third of the work done can be automated! Making an investment in technology would help in providing high quality and efficient treatment at minimal costs.
One of the main areas that require automation is indeed in the digitizing and management of records. Majority of hospitals are entirely dependent to store medical documents in physical hard copies rather than getting them stored in a digital format . To convert all these paper documents into a digital format by manual data entry is indeed a tedious task.
Forget about the time taken for this process ( it might take ages!),but the main issue involved with this process is that it is prone to errors. And these processes if done manually, would distract the focus of staffs from respective patients.
Inventory management is yet another aspect where you will find an intense scope for RPA in health care. Let us check out few robotic process automation cases. Most of the items like syringes, surgery gloves etc. are ordered and stacked based on the demand forecasting done with respect to the past data and estimated number. Nearly twenty percent of the items stacked went unused, inventory charges hence would rise up. Implementing RPA would help to get a grip of the situation and streamline operations, amp up transparency and boost efficiency.
Premier robotic automation companies in India like Synlogics are coming up with personalized solutions to meet the demands of this industry. Hospitals can depend on such firms or top RPA vendors to meet their demands.
Implementing RPA tools in back-end jobs would help in eliminating delays and interruptions.
In the case of middle-end jobs, if RPA is implemented it would get the insurance claims processed in no time, including the formalities like eligibility check, data verification, and resubmission of claims.
The functioning of hospitals is very crucial. It is essential to solve and counter all the disruptions for hospitals to function in response to the needs of a society!
