Nowadays, convenience is the king and it’s now no surprise that the food and grocery app industry is evolving rapidly to meet the modern consumer’s day to day needs. According to the article published from Retail Dive predicts seven astonishing trends that will begin to shape food and grocery retail in 2017 and onwards. So, being an owner of a grocery store you need to know how you grocery apps or restaurant, can adapt to meet the needs of your consumers.
Let’s take a look at the footsteps of traditional retail e-commerce that includes apparel, home products, jewelry, food, kids products and grocer. “According to the latest report and analytics from Prosper Insights & Analytics’ November 2016 survey, 7.7% of U.S. consumers have used grocery app services for shopping in the past 30 days, which is almost 5.7% high as compared to last two years.
The key factor that has made food and grocery industry successful in recent years is – “convenience”. Online shopping and grocery delivery services is helping people in different areas like for some in crowded urban areas are leveraging these services while some users who are facing transportation issues are leveraging these services and getting their stuffs delivered right at their doorstep. Be it busy working parents or college going students, food and grocery shopping is helping every genre of audiences.
Challenges of Food and Grocery delivery services
As online shopping is becoming a key way in which consumers are purchasing groceries, we are yet to figure out how to deliver these goods and products to customer homes and offices is poising another challenge.
Delivering goods from the final delivery hub to consumers — will continue to challenge grocery retailers in 2017 and beyond. Is home delivery the answer? Do shoppers expect the same-day delivery? Do retailers should create a pickup point inside the store itself or perhaps at the remote locations like Amazon Lockers? Are fulfillment and pickup areas sufficient? Exactly how many staffs are required to meet shopper’s demand and expectations? Should retailers consider third-party partnerships?”
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered and the crystal ball is still a bit foggy. So far, what we know is that 47% of consumers want their food and grocery orders delivered on the same-day, according to the recent study. And, that’s really a huge number you can’t ignore.

Be it an enterprise or small businesses (SMBs), everyone is rapidly adopting the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. But the before adopting it in your business, you need to consider what all factors makes for a good SaaS solution. What are the key elements that will deliver the most return on an investment in terms of time, effort, and money? Which factors will determine success? In this post, we have decided to answer the questions by looking at the cloud computing trends and some of the top SaaS solutions that are currently trending in the market. However, the solutions serve different for different industries, but they tend to have some basic commonalities. Let’s take a look at them:
Flexibility always relates to infrastructure and architecture. And, people often think in investing in SaaS because they are required to be responsive to their customers demand. Always remember that a flexible solution meets the need of customers and can keep customers satisfied. And, as we design SaaS solutions for right identity and access management (IAM), we need to consider flexibility. Will people who are using the product or planning to use should be able to meet the demands of the growing workforce and its users? So, will it help people grow their companies on a global level? Or will it meet the data demands efficiently that are placed upon it as users use their desktops, smart devices and connected “things”?
- Engaging and User-friendly
Today UX is not just a challenge that is found with the web and mobile development. It has become a concern for us, too. Being a user, if our SaaS solution doesn’t feature easy-to-navigate dashboards, people would not be using them. They are looking for a ground-breaking tool that can make their lives simpler and efficient. And, if we can design the solutions that have the capability to feed the users with the information they are looking for, then our solutions are more likely to be adopted.
- Security and control
SaaS solutions without having the right security protocols and service level agreements (SLA) would not be used. And, people who are looking to know their data as secure as it possibly can. They also need to know what can happen to that data. Who has access to that data? How can they control the access? Our created solutions need to not only secure the data but can also keep control to users in transmitting that data.
- Smart devices
A SaaS based solution without a mobile element will diminish. And, our customers are part of that anytime, anywhere workforce. Similarly the solutions have to be, too. The key reason may be one of the convenience and consumer expectations. A mobile application enables people to easily respond to the situations in real- time. Why not empower them so that they can keep the employees and customers safe and secure?
- Centralization is the key
All sized businesses are trying to limit the number of vendors and applications they use for the day-to-day management. They just don’t want any another solution. They want solution that can replace the existing three or can atleast integrate with those other three into it. To leverage an open API, other solutions and systems can be easily added to it. However, the end user need not visit to all the pieces; but what can be done is they must visit our application and make an update that can be shared with all others.
A well-versed SaaS solution that doesn’t account for the data it creates is a not a wise solution. And, most of the solutions that are listed as the top ones either focus entirely on precise analytics or should feature it as a key competency. So, if you want our solutions to be on the next year’s “top ten” list, then we must incorporate analytics well. If we add more to the point, we need to deliver the analytics with right and actionable insights. Our customers want data that can be easily and immediately used and that can effect positive change.
Hope the above mentioned points will help you in understanding the essentials for a successful SaaS solution Let us know, if you know more factors that can contribute to essentials for a successful SaaS solution?
One of the biggest industries, which are affected by the shift towards Smartphone devices, is Automotive industry. According to the recent survey, 1,500 individuals are currently looking to buy a car, approx 72% claimed to use their Smartphone devices in their car purchasing lifecycle, and around 52% claimed to use their Smartphone while looking for the new part. Around 29% said that they have used their Smartphone devices while selecting and reviewing mechanics. And, this shift is indicating an entirely new landscape, which has empowered customers to compare the prices, easily receive and redeem offers and coupons, browse sales offers and reviews along with the option to go for a purchase.
Automotive-Industry-An Evolution Transformers
Gone are the days when you’d have to go to car yard to buy a car. Buying a car from the yard is a time consuming, and thankless way of doing research. Here comes the usage of Smartphones. These car-search specific apps enable the consumers to search for cars easily and understand more about them than ever before. Now they can go into the car yards with much more knowledge and information.
Apps like Carsales and Drive are helping users in finding the best prices. Kelley Blue Book and Cars.com are used to look for the expert reviews and organize test drives. There are various apps like Edmunds, which helps in calculating true market value of a vehicle, empowers consumers with an incredible power. Now Smartphone users can simply jump on social media to check the reviews given by other drivers, or can go on Youtube to check the comprehensive test drive videos published by the experts.
And, as a result most of the buyers these days know much about the car before they purchase it.
Being Creative, Being Right
This transition of customers on mobile apps has helped them in wisely comparing price and reviews. Few automotive brands are aware of this consumer transition, and are developing innovative and game-changing automotive mobile apps that can easily engage with their customers. And, that’s why they are adapting it in their mobile marketing efforts, too. For example – Audi is designed to draw an attention to Audi’s Start / Stop technology; new Audi models’ engines instinctively turn off at traffic lights, and turn back on when the accelerator is pressed.
Let’s demonstrate this technology – an app detects any incoming open applications that are not being used for long and sends the user a alert to close it, thus saving battery and making your Smartphone more efficient thus paralleling the Stop / Start technology in Audi cars. It lets you save energy by turning things off especially when they’re not being used. And, that’s why – it’s simple, effective, and smart as you can get.
Smartphone devices and mobile apps are revolutionizing the landscape of Automotive industry for much better experience, thus helping customers in getting ahead of competition and keeping automotive sellers honest. And, that’s why it is simplifying the process at both the ends, and making it conventionally a much stressful process; little bit more fun and exciting.

In the previous post we have discussed how a well-versed mobile app analytics can result in a successful mobile app. And, if you have a team that knows how to correctly apply or integrate analytics with your app, then you are taking the right step towards making your app successful. We at Parangat, follow all the groundbreaking tools and techniques that can help in making your mobile app successful. Let’s take a look at a few more points of how to leverage analytics to drive your mobile app strategy:
- You need to create a culture where it’s ‘Allowed’ to fail
When you are implementing a mobile analytics-driven mobile app development strategy, one of the key points that you need to discover is – you’re not going to make the right decision every time and every time you are required to try something new. But if you are going down the wrong road sometimes, it’s not like you are not trying hard enough. It’s when you measurement and analysis drive your development process; you are quickly learning which hypotheses are true and which are not. And, your wrong hypothesis will help you in knowing what not to do.
So, if you are creating a culture where people do not fear of getting penalized for failing, you are creating a culture where people can learn from their failure and can know they should not do. Mobile analytics is a great way of ending long-time debate because by using analytics you are letting numbers to define “winning” ideas. So, you have an app idea? – Then test it and get the right answer. As this is where mobile app analytics tools can help you.
- Develop a common language
Teams work well when they share a common goal. And, one way to advance this within your team is to ensure that everyone understands the company’s goals and objectives. And, you can reinforce your common purpose with the language your team uses to discuss about the app’s objectives and the key metrics that support them. By creating a data dictionary that well defines what your key metrics represent to your business and how they can be captured, derived, and rightly calculated. Just update it regularly as your goals and metrics transform throughout the app lifecycle.
- Make everyone in your team a business analyst
Ask everyone from your team to analyze your app. As in this connected world —data is the oxygen that has the capability to help users earn success. By understanding and creating the insights from the data, you can build a well-versed strategy. Furthermore, these people of your team can have the expertise that you are looking outside. They know their part of their business well, so you need to empower them so that they can help you in digging the relevant data.

We have shared few crucial points in our previous post, where we have discussed how and why soft launch plays an important role in the success of any app. Remaining points we will be discussing in this post:
- Testing App Store Performance
The App store is flooded with lots and lots of apps. And, that’s why apps are lost among the thousands of other apps, which are already fighting for attention. However, there are numerous ways that ensure that you rightly enter the market strategically by properly understanding how well your app will work. And, this small scale test will figure out areas that need ASO adjustments. Now it has become crucial to properly understand your goals and properly craft effective strategies before hard launch. You need to know what to properly measure in order to make data-focused decisions for delivering a successful app.
- Data You Should be Collecting During a Soft Launch
Now when you are familiar with the benefits of app’s soft launch and your overall goals, you are required to determine what you need to measure prior to your app’s launch. So, it has become important to measure and track both – user acquisition and user experience. The right UA will help you properly understand from where your new users are coming, how much they will cost, and how much revenue they will generate. By measuring the UX, you can track user’s behavior including what features they are actually looking for and what are their pain points. It’s the only thing, which is required to acquire a steady influx of users. Here are a few key data points that will help you in properly analyzing:
First step that you need to follow is – you need to properly monitor how users navigate within the app. Are they discarding it at any specific spot within the app? You need to ensure that you meet all the challenges that may result in user’s abandoning your app.
- Lifetime Value
Have you ever thought? – What’s your Average Revenue per User (ARPU)? You might be having in-app purchases or having ad placements to generate revenue, but unless you give a right test run before releasing it to the primary market, you would not be able to know which revenue streams are the most successful. Soft launch of an app will allow you to understand how much revenue you can generate and from where.
ASO is an important tool that can help you in understanding how well your app is performing in the App store. By imbibing the right ASO strategies, you can find the lags and advantages of your app through the app store search. ASO will help you in getting the answers of few crucial questions like – are the creatives (screenshots, icons, etc.) are compelling enough to entice new users? You can use ASO data to tailor your keyword options, creatives and app description so that you can attract more users.
So, by choosing a soft launch approach, you can prove to be extremely informational and valuable. It not helps in the initial user acquisition phase of the product lifecycle but also provides you an in-depth insight on what your users want prior to the preparation for your hard launch. With the soft launch, you’ll be able to collect patterns of user’s behavior, define success factors and business pain points. It will help you in understanding how users interact with your app. So, wisely choose the right soft launch strategy that can help you in getting the right steps without jeopardizing the overall success of your mobile app.
