Working with Optus

Depending on your business needs and appetite for change, you can choose a more tactical or strategic approach when you're creating an app. Let us know how your business works, and together with one of our mobility partners, we can develop customised solutions. Alternatively, you can choose a pre-packaged solution.

Tactical approach Strategic approach

The tactical approach: start small, reduce the risk and prove the benefit quickly.

Not every mobile apps project has to be big, long and involved. If you're beginning your mobility journey and don't want to take it all on, you may want to run something within your own department or pilot a small project. Alternatively, you have a particular problem you want to fix and you want to drive a result quickly.

Options with a tactical approach:

  • Pre-packaged solutions - e.g. Mobile File Management, Mobile Forms, etc.
  • Stand-alone solutions with a cloud back end - no need for systems integration.
  • One mobile platform.
  • Leverage an Opex cost centre.
  • Convert your tech fund into innovations fund to kick of a pilot or run a mobility workshop.

The strategic approach: transform your business through mobility.

Transform the way you do business through mobility. If you have a mobility strategy, are planning one, or have experimented with smaller mobility projects and are looking for a truly integrated approach. For this project to get off the ground you need a business case and a solid ROI.

Options with a strategic approach:

  • Strategic and operational consulting.
  • Best practice for app development and deployment.
  • Policy development.
  • Custom application development and integration with back end systems.
  • Building the business case and ROI.
