SOFTWARE AND CONSULTING SERVICES
Varpu Works provides business development and mobile strategy consulting; developer services and ecosystem consulting; and mobile app concepting, design, and development.
We can help you develop your business to make the most of mobile apps, phones and tablets in your customer service or in your own business operations. Everyone and their dog has a smartphone and tablet today, and they expect to do things and get stuff done on the go, with maximum ease and with short attention spans.
It is ever more important to have your products and services available through software interfaces, so that they can be integrated and incorporated into those of third-party developers. With over twenty years of software product management and engineering experience, we can help you clarify the ecosystems you operate in or that you may provide, and how to serve those ecosystems’ other developers and parties.
APP DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Our first forays into mobile apps and services was in 2000, developing WAP and SMS products for consumers. The world has moved on since then, and we can provide business development, conceptual design, visual design, and implementation and integration of innovative and demanding mobile apps for the second decade of the 21st century.
