Getting ahead in a competitive industry is about staying current and being able to serve customers in as many ways as possible.

This is why Pan-Am Dental Laboratory identified building a mobile app as a key area of focus. But without any app development experience in-house, they needed a reliable and affordable partner to help them do it.

We talked to Harry Brodmann, Director of Operations and Marketing at Pan-Am about why they trusted MobiLoud to build and manage their mobile app.

About the Company

Pan-Am Dental Laboratory is a provider of dental supplies in the US, manufacturing products such as dental prosthetics, crowns, bridges, dentures, night guards, and implants. They process around a thousand orders a day for dentists across the country.

That’s a lot of business, but still just a small piece of the market, with more than 3,000 dental apps in the US.

In a competitive market, where many other dental supply companies have their own app, Harry and and Pan-Am decided they needed an app too, to build deeper relationships with often fickle customers.

“Customers in this industry are not the most loyal. So we're always looking for a way to get an edge, whether it's end-to-end quality or, in this case, in customer communication and customer service.”

The Challenge

Pan-Am didn’t need to reinvent the wheel. What they primarily needed was their existing website converted into an app.

This would allow Pan-Am to communicate better with their customers, and make it easier for their customers order supplies, book pickups and get order status updates.

But despite their simple needs, developing a mobile app is still a complex task. None of their existing development team had any experience in this area, so it wasn’t something they could handle in-house.

“We had recently built our website and wanted to have a similar look to the app. Our needs were not overly complicated, but building something from scratch, we don't have any staff who have developed apps.”

Their options were to hire a mobile development team, which would be expensive and risky for what they wanted from the app. They could hire an agency, which would also come with a big cost. Or they could look at simpler services to convert a website into an app, like MobiLoud.

The Solution

Harry researched a number of website-to-app solutions, and had calls with a few.

MobiLoud was one of those solutions. We got right back to his enquiry and set up a call. The speed and efficiency of our communication with Harry immediately indicated that we’d be a good fit with their company.

“We try to do things quickly and efficiently here. So MobilLoud's immediate response time was something very positive to see.”

We went deeper with Harry on how it would work, our process, what role we’d play in the app development workflow and what it would cost.

Harry loved how open and transparent we were. He also loved what we could do for the price they would pay. The low cost meant almost zero risk for them, and no reason not to try it out and see what the result would be.

“For the cost that it was going to take for us to get an app, it wasn't a huge investment to where there's a lot of risk involved. With the cost where it was, it wouldn't make sense for us to not do it.”

Results

The Pan-Am Connect App

The process worked just like we said it would, and we were able to ship a mobile app that fully reflected Pan-Am’s website, for minimal expense and no fuss.

The end result was as expected; it doesn’t do anything fundamentally different from the website, but widens their reach and satisfies a number of customer requests.

“We had a request from some customers, and generally if we get requests from a handful of people we'd take that as a sign that there could be a larger group of our customers who would be interested in this kind of thing.”
“I wouldn't say it's revolutionized the way that our customers interact with us or the way that customer service is being handled, but for those customers who do want this type of solution, it's certainly a positive. And it's something that we can advertise.”

The app, for the low cost and minimal effort, has been a success for Pan-Am and has easily provided them with a positive ROI.

Launch An App for Minimal Expense and Zero Risk with MobiLoud

Pan-Am Dental Laboratory didn’t want to upend their operational model and add tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars in overhead by building an in-house mobile development team.

With MobiLoud, they were able to launch an app quickly and easily. Their web development team still manages most of the functionality, which is shared and synchronized between their website and the app.

We handle the technical maintenance and updates for their mobile app, leaving recurring cost and effort on their plate.

“If you sign up, you'll certainly get your money's worth and likely more. The initial investment means there's minimal risk for what you stand to gain.”

If you’re thinking about launching an app for your website, you have nothing to lose by trying MobiLoud.

The cost is low and we do everything for you, from building your apps to publishing them on the App Store and Google Play Store. And since we simply convert your existing website into apps, you don’t need to redesign or rebuild anything.
