Why Converting Over to a Mobile App:
Similar to blog post about The Bail Bonds Industry, Americans spend an average of 10 hours per day and over 500 hours per year on their mobile devices. So why not? This is a crucial point and a cross road in your business to either push on with were the marketing platform is being set or stay based lined and get passed up by your competitors. If the market is leaning towards mobile devices and pushing away from desktops, print ads, and overall back logged marketing, then why stay fastened in this forgotten requirement.
Time Line on Smart Phones:
The below graphic shows a small time line based around mobile devices and the evolution of the smart phone. Smartphones came barreling into the consumer market right around the late 90s, but only gained mainstream popularity when Apple introduced the iPhone back in 2007. Since then there has been a massive flux on smart devices blanketing the market and providing us with new reports showing that by the end of 2018, over a third of the world’s population is projected to own a smartphone, an estimated total of almost 2.53 billion smartphone users in the world.
The Journey to the Mobile App Platform:
For years now the Bail Bonds market has been glued to this old style of branding and marketing. Streamlining endless amounts of paperwork, verbal updates, travel time, hours locating defendants and buying unlimited amounts of lines to keep their phones open for business. All this in hope to generate new cliental and stay on the top of the list for their local jail house. So when Mobilesoft™ approached the Industry with a solution, we were welcomed with open arms. Bail agencies from across the nation poured in with their problems and we designed a platform housing all their solutions.
How the App Helped:
When the platform was developed and then tested in the field, we were able to provided the Bail market assistance to their shops by cutting their work load down by half within their 24 hour window. Removing 65% of “track me” calls and replacing them with the check in feature that records time, dates and location automatically with permission from the client. By applying this feature it will ultimately bring their call list down by 25%.
This is the most effective feature in our custom bail bond platform. Since it’s launch the Bail agency has been able to track over 40,000 defendants to date.
A concern to the bails agency was to be able to capture their defendants as soon as they were being arrested, but there wasn’t a way to engage with their clients with that instant approach. Mobilesoft™ then developed The Panic Button that instantly notifies you of their arrest, arrest location and deliver all the information you need to write a new bond, before they hit booking.
- Making a payment by integrating your current payment processor and allow new bail and existing clients to pay directly from your app.
- Making court appearance easier for you and your clients. We have built a feature that allows the defendants to check in to court and submit paperwork in one easy step.
- We have integrated a directory of all your bail agents and easy access for clients to get important questions answered.
In doing all this we have provided instant notification while giving the ability for your clients to go to court and use your app.
