[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Introduction

The 21st century of India opened a new era of industrialization, globalization and liberalization. Key scientific innovation and discoveries led India to new heights; the multinational corporations (MNC’s) expanded their territory with an opportunistic view. People migrated from rural to find scope of livelihood and aspired for development in different spheres such as infrastructure, business, health, education and more. Similarly, the advent of smartphones and easy access to the mobile internet created a vast space for different business to thrive. The business strategies have aligned to a customer-centric approach, and the web applications revolutionized the concept by catering to different customers.

 

Earlier, the cyber cafes earned good profits as few middle class, and working people used broadband connectivity to access the internet for work while school children, teenagers or even many working people were highly dependent upon cyber cafes for e-ticket reservation, viewing exam results, gaming and many other web-based services. But the smartphones and 4G internet played a vital role for people to access the internet in both rural and urban. The same services for which people were dependent upon cyber cafes are now easily accessible through mobile apps.

 

The mobile apps have transformed the supply chain network from a linear channel to a more diversified network. The advanced data analytics used by the companies could easily track our search history, read our choices of products which can give an edge to the companies in making quick and critical business decisions. Earlier television ads, newspaper advertisements, billboards and posters were used to channelize the marketing but with the growing internet users, there has been an increase in digital marketing and social media marketing for various companies and organization.

 

Importance of mobile apps in rural India

It helps the farmers to obtain information related to crop diseases, weather forecasting updates, and important schemes. Moreover, many of these applications serve the customer in their local language. The source of entertainment has also shifted from TV channels to mobile apps and social networking applications. The networking and accessibility of information have become convenient with the use of smartphones in rural. Companies and organizations are finding new ways to expand their market into rural areas. Digital payments and cash transfers have become a new mode of transactions in semi-urban and rural.

 

Many government applications are used to monitor the physical progress of work under different government schemes, provide information to the beneficiaries, and facilitate a feedback system to empower and consolidate the communities concentrated in the rural.
