Most teams in most industries will get more productive with custom mobile apps. Construction, transportation, utilities, oil and gas, agriculture, manufacturing, shipping ... the list is long. If you work in one of these industries and think a mobile app would help your team, this article is for you. It is a step-by-step planner on how to make an app and implement it for your business use case.
The article will not advise you to hire software developers. In fact, absolutely not. The article tells you how to create your own app yourself or with the help of your own team. You need no knowledge of software development or programming. Instead, you will use a no code app platform called AppSheet that is explicitly designed for business professionals like you. In general, the concepts in this article apply to other no code platforms as well.
A note of caution: every no code platform will claim you can create apps in seconds. So does AppSheet. That is true in a literal sense but it is also not true in a practical sense. You will have an app working in seconds or minutes. However, to build a good app, the one you want with the features you want, it will take some investment of time. I believe a week is sufficient, investing a couple of hours a day. Hence, the "7-day planner"!
