Our Mobile Development Expertise
YOUR BUSINESS CHALLENGES WE HELP WITH
Provide opportunities for remote work
Company employees can work with business documents (e.g. leave notes and handwritten text) remotely using their mobile devices.
Offline mode allows users to process documents even without Internet connection. Once online again, the app automatically synchronizes data with the server ensuring that no user’s work is lost.
Attract new customers
A company provides a mobile app to its customers to engage them more in the offered services.
A new electronic channel either an online ticketing system or online an transportation timetable allows a business to acquire new customers.
Optimize cost and time on routine tasks execution
Manufacturing enterprise provides a mobile app to its workers that helps inspect items, record inspection results, take photos of defective items and send data to enterprise backend systems for further processing.
Transfer money electronically in a secure way
Financial organization’s clients can request and/or send money transfers using a mobile app.
On the one hand, user experience is lean and robust; on the other hand – transactions are secure and easy to track by authorized authorities.

Business Case: IBA Group's own product for public transportation
IBA Group decided to create its own mobile app to integrate with public transportation companies’ backend services to visualize live data on public transport arrival and movement.
Users can track public vehicles online, check vehicle and bus stop schedules, choose their preferred transport types and plan their itineraries for their commute. The app is flexible enough in terms of integrations with various data providers.
Business Case: Shipment management mobile application
We developed a mobile app for an international shipping and container transportation company. The solution allows customers access and manage their shipments on the go.
Business Case: Tyre manufacturer cuts down expenses
A worldwide tyre manufacturer regularly inspects tyres to enable the regrooving process for the tyres. With the help of the native Android mobile application created by us, a plant worker can scan tyre bar codes, inspect tyres, take photos of defective items and record all the information in the mobile app that sends the data to the SAP backend for further processing by plant managers.
Business Case: IBA Group automates the analysis of shelf display for one of tobacco brand
Goods Checker analize types of goods and SKUs on store shelves using neural networks and computer vision, comparing realograms with planograms. It helps merchandisers to work more efficiently using mobile application Check&Go.
Recognition accuracy ranges from 90% to 98% depending on the category of products and the quality of photos.
Business Case: Bank cards processing center goes mobile to promote their payment system
A bank cards processing center requested a mobile solution for Android and iOS to enable parents and their kids to exchange funds via a mobile app to promote their own electronic payment system.
We suggested a Flutter cross-platform app to fulfill this request. In a nutshell, a kid requests a fund transfer from their parents by providing a textual request description and (optionally) a photo. In addition to this core feature we developed possibilities for parents to track their kids’ location, control entering/leaving geofencing, and watch battery level.
The app integrates with Java and SAP backend and uses a public service for bank client identification with a mobile phone or passport data.
Business Case: A company speeds up documents processing
We developed an iPad app that is a mobile client for the IBA Group’s own document management system called “Chancellor”.
Our client’s employees can work with documents remotely, regardless of whether they are online or offline. Users can download documents to their mobile devices, leave comments and add handwritten notes. Once online, the system automatically synchronizes data with the server.

Cross-platform Mobile Applications Development
Cross-platform Tech Growth
Cross-platform technologies for mobile applications development have recently taken a huge step forward. Modern cross-platform apps offer an almost native user interface and experience, they are fast, easy to support.
Going cross-platform could be a smart move for your business as this strategy could reduce time to market and costs.
With Flutter, we can target iOS and Android with the same skill set of Dart (Flutter programming language). Code reuse ratio can get as high as 90% and above.
Even if there is a need to develop a custom component (plugin) specific either for Android or for iOS we can implement this with help of our experienced Android/iOS engineers.
Google’s Flutter Toolkit
Our cross-platform team mainly specializes in Flutter Google’s toolkit. This tooling allows developers to build beautiful and natively compiled applications for Android and iOS from a single codebase. Web, desktop and embedded devices are also supported.
Flutter features the following key benefits:
- Fast development, Stateful Hot Reload allows painting an app to life in milliseconds.
- Expressive and flexible UI.
- Native performance, Flutter code is compiled to native ARM machine code.
Flutter is used around the world to build apps, some examples are Google, eBay, BMW, Alibaba.
Mobile Applications Testing Services

We specialize in automated testing using Appium with tests written in Python. Test automation brings you the following benefits: larger test coverage, quick detection of critical errors, saving resources in long term perspective, opportunity to release builds faster.
Mobile Applications UX/UI Design
Our Design Process
- Before we propose a solution we try to understand what is the problem that a mobile solution targets, how users are going to interact with an app. We research competitors and user groups, create logical flow diagrams, interaction scenarios, sketch wireframes, and clickable prototypes.
- Once the analysis phase is done, we switch to UI design featuring UI kit creation, screens mockup design, A/BV, and split testing.
- During the development phase our UX/UI experts stay in close contact with developers to make sure the final solution is pixel perfect and completely adheres to mockups.
- In the app publishing phase our designers create marketing materials for store listings including apps screenshots, promo videos, application icons.
Following De Facto Standards
We normally follow Apple’s Human Interface Design and Google’s Material guidelines as these are the de facto proven standards in the mobile world.
Our Design Toolset
Some software tools we use in our work: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Figma, Sketch, Corel Draw, Axure, Cinema 4D, Principle, Zeplin, InVision, Balsamique.
