The inFullMobile team was challenged with creating an FFA solution and its global deployment. One that would further optimize existing processes and eventually bring significant savings for the organization.
FFA iOS application + integration with existing backend
The application was to be used by the store auditors while checking merchandise metrics. Auditors visiting retailer locations in many cases were interacting with managers or points of contact from retailer side. Audit app was to be a one-stop shop for task management, surveying, calendar, and master data management.
The inFullMobile team followed a user-centric approach from the very beginning of this project. Walking in the shoes of the field representative gave our designers and developers a great perspective and tailored the solution to the needs of the end users. This approach converted into efficiency savings after the project deployment.
Application design / UX guidelines assure simple and fast experiences to the user, similar to those they are already having on their mobile devices. Take a look at some of the highlights below.
Application icons are the most important initial components of the client's mobile experience by providing exterior identity, allowing users to distinguish apps prior to launch.
A narrow set of high impact primary colors similar in value, saturation, and warmth create strong consistency of the overall app UX/UI.
Due to the breadth of content, interactions and navigation structure app required clear alerting / notifying iconography. Push messages inside the app, designed in the right way are the key to users' efficiency boost.
The iconography has been supposed to be in-line with the latest iOS guidelines - flat colors and simplicity first.
UI adjustments enable big productivity gains. Customized control shown, is adjusted specifically to the business process inside the app - enabling faster SOS analysis.
Development has been carried out following principles of the SCRUM methodology. This allowed for a timely delivery within a very tight schedule minimizing at the same time the back and forth on the project.
The entire development was divided into 2 week sprints. Transparency of the delivery process has been a key success factor for the client.
Coding the solution and integrating it with existing backend systems has been a challenge. Native iOS development, Core Animation goodies and heavy QA were the factors behind the success of the app among the end users.
