The web application or software


- The average smartphone owner uses more than 35 applications per month. If you have an app, your customers will use it regularly because they do everything from their phones or tablets. 

- 26% of consumers start their searches on branded apps. By having an app or software, you increase your chances of sales because customers will go to see your products before they even look at your competitors.


The online store


- The eCommerce industry is growing 23% year over year. Not only are people buying more and more on the internet, but there are also more and more to buy on the internet. It has become the norm for a brand to offer its customers the possibility to buy its products or services online.

- The first reason why people buy online is that they can do so at any time of the day. By making yourself available all the time you increase your chances of sales and your customer numbers. No need to keep the store open until noon, customers who can't get there in time will order online.
