What is a industrial app?

An industrial application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to manage machinery. Industrial applications are used by customers to monitor and control machines in the field, as well as by service providers for managing maintenance requests.

Industrial apps are often used by businesses for inventory management, task management, business planning, and employee training. Popular industrial applications include Concur, HowStuffWorks ESSENTIALS Workplace Safety Trainer, and Sharegate.

How to successfully grow your industrial application

An industrial application is an app that provides a service to users in a specific industry or vertical. A customer relationship management app, for example, can help salespeople and other business professionals keep track of their interactions with clients and prospects. An industrial application can have high value for its users because it increases productivity and efficiency in a specific industry.

Risks and challenges of building a industrial application

An industrial app faces security risks related to malicious insiders and compromised hardware, as well as physical safety risks posed by the use of dangerous tools and machinery. Industrial apps should be designed to ensure that users are unable to tamper with or modify hardware in a way that could cause injury or death. The software should also have built-in safeguards to prevent users from tampering with machinery or placing themselves in danger.
