Always on the Cutting Edge with Apps Developed by Arvato Systems

Mobile Experiences 

Mobile Applications Accelerate Communication

Mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and different wearables have long been a fixture of our personal and professional lives. Being able to communicate on the go and exchange information at any time and from anywhere are requirements that today’s clients and prospective clients quite understandably expect from companies. That’s why professional app development is gaining even greater significance.

Individual app development

Communication is carried out on the go more and more frequently. That’s why individually programmed, intuitive, and high-performance apps are crucial factors for success. They boost efficiency in all areas of application – whether that’s in HR, marketing, sales, customer service, or even the Internet of Things (IoT). Professional support from a specialized service provider is crucial in order to supply customized business-to-customer and enterprise apps. Needs-based consulting and trust-based collaboration form the ideal basis for app development – regardless of which technology type or application case is at hand.

App Development with a Variety of Technologies

There are as many technologies out there for supporting app implementation as there are requirements for a mobile app. Throughout the joint app design process and on the basis of our many years of experience, we select the right technology for your app, whether it’s native development for iOS and/or Android, or cross-platform technologies like Xamarin and Flutter.

iOS Native Apps

Android Native Apps

Cross-platform Apps

iOS Native App Development

A native app developed for iOS will be precisely tailored to the software and hardware of the respective Apple device – from iPhones and iPads, to Apple TVs, right through to Apple Watches. It will thus meet the utmost requirements in terms of functionality, reliability, and design. Using programming languages like Swift, Objective C, and C++ during app development offers the advantage of exploiting the functional possibilities of the latest devices to the fullest. The result is a consistent and spellbinding user experience.

Android Native App Development

A native app developed for Android offers the same advantages as a native iOS app in terms of functionality, performance, and design. Android apps are indispensable in achieving greater reach on the basis of their high market share alone. While Java and C++ (which are supported by Google) were dominant until now, another new programming language in the shape of Kotlin has since arrived on the scene.

Cross-platform App Development

Cross-platform app development relies on a write once – run anywhere approach. A common codebase that can be used on different devices and operating systems exists. Flutter and Xamarin are among the most common frameworks. Apps for Android and iOS can be created based on Flutter, for example. Xamarin has a very similar functionality. On the basis of the .NET Framework, apps can be developed not just for iOS and Android, but also macOS and Windows.

The Right Apps for Any Application Case

B2C apps and enterprise apps are among the most common mobile applications. For a B2C app to fulfill specific user requirements and offer true added value, the end user has to be put front and center in all phases of app development. This makes it possible to transform prospective clients into dedicated clients and retain them in the long run.


In contrast, enterprise apps are used within companies to simplify processes, such as those related to project management, onboarding, or even sales and service activities. With the aid of open interfaces, an enterprise app can be integrated with different existing systems – from SAP applications, to Microsoft 360 components, right through to cloud-based tools – totally in line with company requirements. This gives rise to customized apps that are able to perfectly fulfill the respective requirements. The result is streamlined processes across different departments.

Tailormade B2C and Enterprise Apps

IoT Apps

The Internet of Things is everywhere. Everyday devices are becoming increasingly intelligent. They can be connected with other machines and the Internet, and can even communicate with each another. In order for IoT to flourish in the private sphere, clear and intuitive interfaces are needed between humans and machines – in other words, IoT apps. Smart home apps are an ideal application case. They allow consumers to view all relevant sensor data at a glance and control the respective devices via smartphone – switching lamps on and off, regulating the heating, or even setting the baking time for a cake.

Recreational Apps

Recreational apps are another category of essential B2C apps alongside IoT apps. The possibilities in app development are as diverse and unique as people’s hobbies. The German Football Association’s FUSSBALL.DE app is one of the most successful sports apps in Germany. Soccer fans can use the app not just to request information on all matches ranging from district to regional leagues, but they can also save clubs, teams, and championships as favorites. An integrated TV portal for livestreams, a community feature, and links to different social media platforms round off the app.

Sales Apps

Oftentimes, it’s the human touch that’s the most decisive factor when it comes to sales, and it’s the person who argues their case the most convincingly that wins out. High-performance sales apps support sales representatives in client acquisition. They make meetings with new clients seem much more professional and efficient by making sales-relevant information available on smartphones and tablets at any time – from product catalogs and brochures, to images and videos, right through to interactive diagrams and animations.

HR Apps

HR departments too can boost their efficiency with apps for onboarding or obtaining feedback, for example. Being able to accompany new employees in their first few weeks and months at the company with an app that has the answers to any potential questions establishes trust and confidence. With the aid of a feedback app integrated in calendars and the employee database, workers can give different types of feedback, such as on projects, events, or even individuals.

Project Management Apps

Then there are apps that make managing internal projects and processes significantly easier. Between planning and structuring internal projects, allocating areas of responsibility and individual tasks across departments, setting deadlines, weighing up risks, maintaining an overview of resources, evaluating progress, and keeping an eye on complex projects – a project management app makes all of this and much more a breeze.

Service Apps

The sales force is one of the most important touchpoints between companies and their clients. Service apps support sales representatives in carrying out their work on site. They not only allow them to enjoy an overview of all meetings together with their itinerary while making client contact data available at all times – they also enable them to access all necessary documents. They can write up records and paperwork on site, have them signed by the client, and immediately report the work they have performed and travel times.
