When it’s time to really make full use of what the digital marketspace has to offer, you have to consider more than just a “brochure-ware” presence. Of course potential clients and customers need to understand your offering and capture the essence of your brand – and that’s important. But what if you can engage your client in a dialogue or convert them to a customer via your web site? What if you can minimize clerical errors, streamline ordering, or even maximize your staff’s time by offloading critical yet repetitive functions to the web?

At Acappella Media we develop robust applications that help our clients realize quantifiable results. We carefully analyze business processes and look for opportunities to migrate inefficient systems and routines to the web and mobile platforms.

And with today’s emphasis on social media, connecting with your customers in real-time settings could mean the difference between good and great customer service.

// Custom Web Applications
Integrating back-office tools to web services liberates your operation and creates efficiencies never before possible before the web. Building online ordering capabilities can streamline your operation by minimizing room for error and real-time collaboration applications integrate your teams no matter their location.

// Social Media Applications
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter all offer development platforms that allow for third parties to integrate tools and services via the web. Acappella Media offers the strategic vision and development expertise to take advantage of these powerful mediums.

// Mobile Applications
Thanks to the exponential power of smartphones, connecting in nearly any setting is quickly becoming an expectation rather than value added service. So integrating web tools with mobile environments is just the beginning. Since the third-screen is a completely different user experience than the web, making your Internet application accessible just isn’t enough. Acappella can build mobile applications that open the world of possibility to you and your customers.

At Acappella Media developing a digital strategy means digging deep to ask our clients the questions to which they may not have answers, giving them answers to questions they may not want to hear and pointing out the obvious in a cluttered world of too much information. Our goal is to become one with our client to fully understand the hurdles they face in an analogue world and educate them on how best practices of the digital world can make a profound impact on attaining their goals.

To do this we analyze business processes, sales channels, customer touchpoints and our client’s organizational strengths and weaknesses to craft an attainable vision of what their digital self would look like.

We look at the client through the lens of the customer to understand not just the right channel of communication, but also the timing of that touchpoint. At what phase of the sales cycle is the customer most and least likely to be engaged and inspired? This is important because the velocity in which word of mouth spreads can make or break brand.
