Project Overview

The Client and their Requirements

A leading Germany-based manufacturer for tools and supplies, our client has made its name by providing reliable and high-quality services to customers all across the globe. They provide unique CAD/CAM processes for foam inlay and shadow board designs, and have a large reseller network to carry out their operations in multiple cities.

The approached Outsource2india in order to get native iOS and Android apps as well as a web app developed which could be used by both their customers and resellers. The app was required to have a customizable virtual shadow board on which tools could be placed and resized. At the same time, client wanted additional functionality which would allow customers to take photos of their board and tool setup and automatically convert them into a CAD design slide which would then be used to manufacture the customized shadow board.

Project Challenges

Since the client's requirements were highly specific, we faced certain challenges during the course of the project, including -

  • The customer had more than 20,000 products and tools which could be used in shadow boards, as a result of which the customization options were infinite. The app therefore had to ably support whatever tool layout the customer selected
  • The client had a global reseller network consisting of more than 300 businesses. They had a specific requirement wherein they wanted the app to rebrand with the reseller logo based on the customer login

O2I's Expert Solution

After brainstorming to find the perfect approach, our developers started with the project while keeping the customer's requests in mind. Our solutions consisted of the following -

  • We developed unique native mobile apps for both the Android and iOS platforms while leveraging the inherent capabilities of each platform for better app performance
  • We worked with an expert SME panel assigned by the client in order to gain first-hand understanding of the shadow board creation process
  • We also developed a web app using the PHP Yii framework which was more robust and more feature complete than the native apps for those moments when customers required finer details and comparisons between various shadow boards

Project Results

The client was extremely satisfied with the project outcome, and has given our reference to many of their business partners. Our native mobile apps not only helped them increase their user base, but also ensured better business returns for them.
