What apps have you worked on that you are most proud of?
Project that the team took on and completed is a gratuity app called Tip-Pop™, a mobile app that provides a cashless alternative to tipping. It is an ultimate Gratuity Solution. The app allows customers to tip service providers (i.e. valet, concierge, pool or beach attendant, bellmen, housekeeping, carwash, salon, etc.) through the app.
For Service providers and businesses whose employees receive gratuities or who participate in a tipping pool, Tip-Pop™ solves the problem for customers who do not have the right amount of cash, or even worse, no cash to tip service providers. To “POP A TIP”, customers scan the service provider’s QR code, locate their service provider with GPS technology or enter their unique ID and then have the option to tip or pay both the bill and tip quickly and efficiently. With their years of e-commerce and mobile development experience, the SRTITSLteam was able to produce this app, which is now successfully employed by various hotels globally.

What’s the one thing you would like to change about app development?
I can say app development market is growing but Startups have to first of all they should research about the idea and mature it. They need to check the competition if any to give them a fair idea. Looking for some Editor choice apps on Play store/iTunes, which will give them a better idea of how the app would look like.
After that they should find an appropriate service provider that offers end to end solution like Shubashish Reliantekk IT Services Limited .
