The Silicon Review
“Having developed 300+ apps, we understand the special needs of startups – technical advice, flexibility, speed – and our team is streamlined to deliver on these parameters”
As the world is increasingly moving to a Mobile First paradigm, not only are traditional businesses scrambling to develop a mobile presence, but all new business models and new startups are designed for mobile platforms from the ground up.
App developers have a strong focus on areas of demand aggregation, social networking, chat, mobile marketing, location-based services, entertainment, mobile commerce, object recognition and mobile payment systems. Today, the requirement for App Development services is increasing exponentially; offering the same Riktam has evolved as one of the leading providers of mobile applications.
Headquartered in Hyderabad and sister office located at Orlando, U.S. Riktam has extensive experience building highly usable web and mobile apps. Since its inception they have designed and engineered more than 300 apps for web, iPhone, iPad, Android and other platforms that have won awards and have topped charts.

Customized services offered
Riktam engages with start- ups in a variety of ways, customized to their needs and their available resources. A typical engagement would start with a contract to develop the MVP (Minimal Viable Product) offering for the client in the fastest possible time. Subsequent engagements could take the form of developing further iterations and enhancements to the product, or assigning a dedicated team to the startup to work continuously on Product Innovation and Product Life Cycle.
Project Contracts – Riktam provides a fully staffed team in order to deliver an end to end functional mobile app project to the client based on their requirement. The team will work with the client to plan the product as per their business requirements – right from interface to specific features and functionality – and provide insight and suggestions on improvement based on their vast experience. Following this the development team will execute the project and assist the client all the way to uploading on the appstore.
Dedicated Developers – In this model, startup clients engage Riktam to provide a set of developers, each experienced and an expert in his or her field, to help them develop their product. This helps startups who find it difficult to hire experienced resources on their own to quickly ramp up their product development effort and still have the flexibility to add or reduce to their tech team and cost structure as their needs change.
Most Riktam clients do a combination of these two models at various stages in their life cycle.
Riktam offers full – stack development capability for the mobile world, including iOS (iPod, iPhone, iPad, iWatch), Android (smartphones and tablets), Windows Mobile, Mobile Responsive Web and Website development. Riktam has a very strong backend team that works on a variety of platforms & technologies including HTML5, AngularJS, JQuery, Sencha, PHP, Ruby on Rails (RoR), Python, Java, MySQL, MongoDB and is able to deploy highly scaled implementations on Amazon AWS and other cloud platforms.
Riktam primarily offers native application development, as opposed to cross-platform methodologies, as the best way to deliver highly responsive and light applications for any given platform.

“The team at Riktam was fantastic to work with… they have a thorough understanding of the mobile gaming landscape, what the client is looking for & what works with end users. The app created for Pringles surpassed expectations and hit #2 on the app store within the first few days of launch! We were very happy with the team work and collaboration with Riktam” -Priyanka Pahwa, Kellogg’s
“CaptivaTour has counted on Riktam for it’s entire technology stack and beyond. The entire product, other than content, was conceptualized, wireframed and designed, and finally coded at Riktam. The product went through multiple revisions at each stage, improving in visual design as well as usability each time.
We found Riktam to be valuable partners who came up with dozens of suggestions and improvements, and very patient with our revisions as well – they truly work as partners and not vendors”.
– Ravishankar Iyer, CaptivaTour
