Top app development companies interview: Anirban Bhattacharya – SynapseIndia

Published on Dec 09, 2015 in App Development

Anirban Bhattacharya is Manager of Business Development at SynapseIndia. The company, founded in 2001 by Shamit Khemka, is located in Noida, India, and employs over 500 people. Here’s what Anirban had to say about his company and the mobile world:

What do you do in SynapseIndia?

We are a 15+ years old software development company providing professional IT solutions to global clients.

A Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, a Drupal Organization Member, and a Google AdWords Certified Partner with accreditations from NASSCOM. We offer a wide range of web/software development solutions using latest web technologies such as PHP, ASP.NET, SharePoint, Magento, WordPress, Drupal, OpenCart, Shopify, etc. and frameworks such as ASP.NET MVC, CakePHP, Zend, CodeIgniter, Symphony, Laravel, Yii, etc.

SynapseIndia also develops applications for iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Tablets (both native applications as well as cross platform technologies such as PhoneGap.)

We have worked on over 3,500 projects and extend end-to-end IT-enabled solutions and services to a broad spectrum of industry verticals ranging from Automobiles, Health and Fitness, Pharmacy and Medicines, Real Estate, News, Information and technology, Law, Travel and Hospitality, Finance, etc.

Which would you say are the best apps SynapseIndia has developed and why?

Till date we have developed over 200 mobile applications of various complexities for a range of industry verticals. Being a service provider, we feel it would be a bit unfair to point any specific application from the huge variety of websites and applications we have developed till date. That said, following are a few applications we have developed that have received good amount of appreciation from users.

  • Cruise finder: an iOS app that allows users to search for and book cruise vacations.
  • Trottr: a social app for pet lovers

Which apps would you have loved to develop and why?

Uber has revolutionized the way in which ride/taxi booking works. The seamless experience it offers to both riders and drivers has made it one of the most popular apps worldwide. We have developed applications that use the same ideology and have seen the amount of responses it gets. So, getting a chance to work on the app that is the first of its kind would have definitely been a great experience.

Which are the 5 apps you use the most on a daily basis?

I personally use the following apps on a daily basis:

  • LinkedIn
  • Skype
  • BBC News
  • Twitter
  • Flipboard

In addition, I also constantly check for new and trending applications with unique concepts to stay updated and ensure I am aware of all new applications which would help interacting with prospective clients.

Which mobile device is the best in the market right now?

iPhone and Android users would continue to debate on this. Given the price bracket in which Apple comes in, it caters to a specific target audience, whereas Android has a larger user base given the variety of handsets. Personally, I feel Apple has the edge. Apple has always been a trend setter and the number of orders we receive for developing iOS applications is higher compared to Android.

What kind of device/platform will be the next big thing?

Augmedix. I personally feel the wearable technology is not fully explored and there are endless possibilities of incorporating improved life science using wearables, Google glass in particular.

Why is AppFutura useful to SynapseIndia?

We have specific skills which might be of interest to high end users. We want to find the right people who look for skilled developers with lots of server experience instead.

We are growing our mobile part of the team and we would like AppFutura to help us with it sincerely.
