Is it possible to save up to 67% of the budget allocated for outlet inspection? We give a positive answer as it was proved by our project.
An international tobacco company is suffering from a disorganized inspection process, which implies hiring a large number of outlet agents to collect information about each outlet where its production is sold. custodia galaxy 7 custodia flip samsung a5 2016 custodia per tab e samsung custodia per samsung j3 custodia s8 samsung fronte retro custodia samsung j7 2016 adidas custodia neoprene galaxy tab e custodia portafoglio s7 edge samsung nike dynamo Outlet agents get a special paper form to find out about the sales result, the placement of the product, the condition of the shop etc. custodia samsung galaxy s8 silicone custodia tablet samsung tab a6 7 0 samsung j7 custodia apribile custodia j3 2017 samsung bianca custodia galaxy j5 2016 samsung samsung 7 edge custodia They spend about an hour to inspect one shop (4-5 shops a day) and then they have to come back to the office and type in the information on the computer which takes them about a half an hour more (per shop).
Why do they double their work by filling in paper forms and writing reports? Is it possible to do it 2-3 times faster? Well, the solution that we have provided helps to save approximately one hour on inspecting and describing just one shop.
How did we do that?
We suggested creating an application for the special corporate smartphones being used by the agents, which would allow to input the information being inside the shop. custodia samsung j7 2017 libro custodia samsung note edge custodia samsung a5 clip samsung j5 2017 custodia sport custodia per samsung galaxy 7 custodia tablet tab e samsung custodia samsung s8 plus rosa custodia trasparente samsung galaxy a5 samsung s5 mini custodia custodia per samsung tablet e custodia portafoglio samsung j3 2017 custodia samsung s8 plus originale custodia samsung s9 silicone custodia a libro samsung note 8 The application eases the data collecting process providing special intelligent templates with forms to fill in and lists to choose from. custodia samsung j72017 custodia samsung galaxy a3 2015 custodia tale samsung Every template is generated automatically, depending on the type of the store. custodia olixar samsung a3 best friends custodia galaxy j5 samsung note 8 custodia originale custodia flip s7 edge samsung custodia j5 2017 samsung originale custodia samsung s6 galaxy The data is collected and sent to the backend in a format, that requires no additional preparation.

The solution was found and now let’s take a close look at the process from the beginning till the end.
The first meeting where our business analyst was discussing the task and deadlines with the company’s officials showed that a lot of work should be done to clear the goals and get the right understanding of the working process. custodia samsung j5 2016 con svritte custodia protettiva 360 samsung s7 samsung a5 2017 custodia disegnata custodia aursen samsung s9 spigen custodia samsung s8 custodia s7 samsung portafoglio samsung galaxy note 2 custodia custodia vrs samsung galaxy s7 asics france Our expert had to interview all the stakeholders to get a clear idea of the working process and was able to find some problem areas in it, then the business vision was formulated.
There were quite a lot of stakeholders in the system (sales department managers, IT department managers, outlet agents) and our first aim was to meet all their requirements although they sometimes contradicted one another. cover samsung j5 custodia custodia galaxy j5 per cintura custodia per tablet samsung galaxy tab a 6 con tastiera custodia j3 2016 samsung brillantini custodia galaxy s7 blu custodia samsung a5 2017 cane Eventually, we were able to find the best solution that turned to be the most effective and suited everyone.
When the business vision was approved, to integrate the application with the existing IT backend infrastructure, our team also held the investigation of the existing architecture design and consultations with the client side tech teams.
The main challenge for the technical team was to find a balance between supporting old IT systems of the company and implementing new technologies in developing mobile applications. tablet samsung 9 6 custodia custodia j3 2017 samsung unicorno custodia tab s3 9 7 samsung custodia samsung j5 2017 originale custodia tab s3 samsung con porta penna custodia j3 2017 samsung spigen ugg australia discount nike air max thea We have managed to do that by using a distributed application structure
Having sketched the future User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI), the team of the business analyst and the UI designer set up the UX prototype to present to the stakeholder’s board for intermediate review and feedback. moko custodia samsung custodia galaxy s8 plus pelluche custodia samsung a8 2018 dual sim custodia j5 samsung 2015 s9 plus custodia samsung custodia samsung j36 custodia samsung s7 edge donna samsung galaxy tab a 32 gb custodia Already at the prototyping stage, the team showed the inclination to combine the best practices of Android Guidelines (for that period of time) with taking into account the collected preferences of the potential users. custodia prada per samsung custodia x samsung s8 custodia samsung j6 2016 custodia samsung tab a6 10 1 per bambini custodia samsung galaxy a3 2017 rosa samsung s9 plus custodia flip custodia cellulare samsung s4 mini custodia galaxy note 3 neo custodia s8 samsung inter Due to it, the subsequent presentation showed the UX prototype met almost all the stakeholders’ requirements, so after several minor changes, the UX project was approved.
After this, the UI designer started to work on the final version of the design: he drew the ready-to-market UI, taking into account the peculiarities of the client’s unified smartphones model range (every outlet agent used a smartphone of the same model); introduced the traits of the company’s corporate style; and created the screen compilation for the developers. samsung galaxy 5j cellulare custodia 2017 custodia per tablet samsung s3 custodia tablet samsung tab a6 10 1 silicone custodia telefono samsung a5 2017 custodia impermeabile samsung galaxy a5 2017 samsung jelly custodia per galaxy j5 nike air jordan soldes The final design also went through the procedure of approval, which we got having covered a couple of corporate style preferences. galaxy xcover 4 custodia custodia samsung j5 2016 musica custodia libro samsung galaxy a5 2017 asics gel pas cher Afterwards, our team proceeded to development.
