Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) October 16, 2014 -- Within five months of starting commercial operations, Teks Mobile Australia is zooming its way towards the top. A recently conducted market survey has shown that this Sydney-based mobile app company has already entered the list of top 20 companies in Oceania in this domain.
A visibly excited Amber Blumanis - the COO of Teks Mobile Australia - attributes much of the rapid growth of the company to her award-winning 'Stopover' application. The airport travel app helped Ms. Blumanis earn the coveted 'Rising Star' award at this year's Talent International competition. Words of high praise from dignitaries like Steve Wozniak and Richard Branson have been instrumental in making people sit up and take note of Teks Mobile Australia, feels the young Aussie entrepreneur.
Initially started as an iPhone app company in Australia, Teks started making Android apps within two months of its start. Specialization in cross-platform mobile app development has played a pivotal role in pulling up the popularity of the agency. In hindsight, it was a smart decision on the part of Ms. Blumanis and her team of mobile app developers to not stay limited to any particular platform. The wide and varied app development portfolio has definitely helped.
Featuring among the top-20 mobile app companies in Oceania is not an achievement in itself, according to the head of Teks Mobile Australia. Instead, this news should spur her team on to reach even greater professional heights, over the next year. By the end of 2015, Ms. Blumanis wishes to see her mobile app company among the top-3 in Australia. Going by how strongly the company has started, that looks like a pretty reasonable target.
The collaboration with Teknowledge Software, one of the premier Asian iPhone and Android app development companies, has helped a great deal as well. Interestingly, Ms. Blumanis had first contacted Teknowledge for developing 'Stopover'. Impressed by the quality of service provided by the mobile app developers at the India-based company, Ms. Blumanis suggested the idea of a strategic business partnership to Teknowledge CEO, Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin. Everything fell in place soon, and there has been no looking back.
It's still early days for Teks Mobile Australia - and Ms. Blumanis has identified two key areas of business to focus on. The first is recruiting and maintaining a group of dynamic and experienced mobile app developers - who would be able to deliver customized solutions to clients. Weekly app development training sessions are being conducted at Teks, to familiarize employees with the latest developments in mobile technology. By the first quarter of next year, Ms. Blumanis hopes that her company would have a strong core group of workers. They would be able to handle projects without having to rely on the Indian professionals.
The second, and probably even more important, area where Teks Mobile cannot afford to slip up on is customer-satisfaction. For this, the iPhone/Android app company in Australia started providing free app quotes to prospective clients from the very outset. Ms. Blumanis emphasized on the fact that Teks offers services across 18 different time-zones - which makes reachability extremely easy. The mobile app testing procedures at Teks are also at par with international standards. In the era of fierce professional competition, bad word-of-mouth publicity can spell doom for any business, and Ms. Blumanis is not taking any chances with that.
For Amber Blumanis as well as Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin, the swift entry of Teks Mobile Australia in the top bracket of app agencies in Oceania is welcome news. The bigger challenge, however, lies in sustaining, and gradually improving this position further. Both of them are aware that this is not going to happen overnight (Teknowledge Software took half a decade to get global recognition). The robust start of the Australian company has made things slightly easier though - and with sincerity, dedication and unwavering work-ethic, both of them believe that they can scale the summit of professional success.
