Web application for ordering Cakes

The ‘Cakes’ web application was created due to the client’s needs to simplify and facilitate the process of ordering cakes and other sweets at all stores. Online orders reduce waiting time and save money, ensuring accurate orders on time without unnecessary waiting and timewasting.

 

Who uses the ‘Cakes’ app?

 

Stores that order cakes using this app to their branches. Each branch can create an order and a special order for individual customers. For example, an individual customer who has requested a customized cake with writing on it.

 

How did the ‘Cakes’ app help the employer and other branches?

 

The application ensured that each branch has the ability of directly creating orders of cakes and other sweets, depending on their needs. The app provides insight into the list of cakes available to that branch, days when it is possible to place orders, as well as a list of all completed and approved orders.  Additionally, the app allows an e-refund to be made if multiple products were ordered by mistake, or if some products simply were not sold. The application offers a list of ordered products, as well as a report of all orders or returns made within a particular time period.

 

Can the app make business easier for other employers?

 

The application can certainly make business easier for other employers, regardless of the type of production, and would prove beneficial to all businesses that need a way to order products easily and accurately.

Mobile and Web Application for Bazenska Tehnika

Development of the application Bazenska Tehnika solved the client’s difficulties with organization and business monitoring.

About the Project

This text is about our client Bazenska Tehnika d.o.o. (Ltd.), a company that deals with the planning, design and construction of swimming pools, solariums, saunas, and wellness equipment. Development of the application Bazenska Tehnika solved the client’s difficulties with organization and business monitoring.

The Solution

The development of the application consisted of three steps, and the first step was the development of mobile and web applications for work orders. It works by repairers receiving push notification in the shape of work orders, which they do in accordance with its instructions. Since repairers are on the field, they record their activities on the field in work orders and they attach taken photos of the construction site before repairs and after them.

The application has a so-called whiteboard where every repairer can write a request that needs to be fulfilled. The request is visible in both mobile and web applications so that everyone can see and fulfill those requests. The application also has payment tracking capability, so that the owner of the company can see payments anytime. This is the case because the company occasionally has over a hundred open construction sites at the same time.

The second step was developing options for creating offers. Some offers were previously too demanding to create in the company’s ERP system, so this application solved that problem as well.

Merging data in the application with the existing data in the client’s ERP was the last step. After this was done, data records were set up to record in both places in real time. This includes integration of receipts, wholesale and retail bills, reservation of goods, and receipt of goods. In the material storage, every product receives its own serial number and bar-code. If a product does not have one, it will receive it by default. Serial numbers and bar-codes will be scanned by repairers whenever they require parts or products for building or repairs. Repairers later scan codes with a special android scanning device. When they do so, their actions become visible in the application for all other users, and in the client’s ERP system as well.

Results

With this application, our client solved his difficulties with organization, reduced the need for new employees, reduced his costs, minimized the number of mistakes due to the human factor, and finally, increased business efficiency.

 

Application for Grad-Export

The prime objective of this text is to “wake up” companies and convince them to digitalize their way of management.

About the Project

Companies are often not conscious of how easier their business could be if they were using an application created for their own needs. The prime objective of this text is to “wake up” companies and convince them to digitalize their way of management. In this way, they can respond to modern challenges, as well as succeed in a demanding global market. We will describe as an example one such successful company that invested into modern technology and equipment. Almost all of the produced goods they export are to countries in Western Europe. They have recognized an opportunity for their company, and so have ordered the application. This company is called Grad Export d.o.o., it is located in Vinkovci and produces decorative panels.

The Solution

Grad Export had only one vision; to see at what stage a product is in real-time. Our mission was to change that and make their business much easier. We solved it by creating an application that could produce and scan bar codes. The head office prints out bar codes, and then sends those bar codes to the production line. The workers there paste them on each product, and during the later production stage, these codes can be scanned by other workers.

After the bar code is scanned, the application will automatically show which stage of production the product is at. After the last stage of production and after the scanning of the last bar code, the application will give a signal that the product is ready for delivery. If the client demands it, the application also offers the option of seeing a weekly report of delivery. This means that every worker can see when a job needs to be finished. The fact that every room in the factory has a large-screen television is helpful since workers can at any time see all of the main information relating to production.

By using this application and by using a scanner, workers can also know where metal sheets are – on which shelf and in which room. By doing this, they can save time, since they no longer need to search for them as they previously had to before starting to use this application.

This text should be an inspiration and a new path to follow for every company that wants to succeed and grow.

 

Making of Different Application

A tailor-made application for healthy lifestyle lovers.

For all curious readers who are fans of healthy eating, exercise, good advice, interesting news and actions, we present to you the Different app.

How the Idea Came to Life

A potential customer called with an idea for an app. He wanted it to serve as a “guide” for healthy lifestyle users – the app should contain three basic categories: healthy fare, news and healthy food actions sorted by category (fish, meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts). It is important to note that the client already owned the website, was active on social networks and had appeared in certain media, and already had quite a high number of followers. The application was the logical result of a sequence of events. The client decided to create an android application for users (and the website for the administrator). After receiving a detailed specification, we started designing the application. With ongoing consultation, the app was finished and uploaded on the Google Play Store, where you can find it under the name Different.

Discounts

If we want to look for a particular food, we simply go to discounts, select the desired food category and see which stores have the same discounts. The application also offers selection/elimination of certain retail chains (for instance, there is no Tommy in Slavonia, and there is no Boso in Dalmatia). The great thing about the application is that a user can add discounts, stores, or food categories – which, of course, the administrator must approve.

Healthy News

In the news category, the user can read entertaining articles on exercise, nutrition, healthy foods and more.

Healthy Map

A Healthy Map provides an overview of locations where you can find a personal trainer or a group training location. Simply allow geolocation on your phone and all of these categories will appear in your area.

Overall, a great application, as evidenced by the high rating on the Google Play platform (4.9 out of 5.0).

Mobile application design and Interaction design

Interaction design and mobile app design go hand in hand with the app creation. interaction design is a process where designers focus on creation of the interesting website with a logical and thoughtful user interface The successful interactive design utilizes technology and principles of good communication to create the user’s best experience, it’s not just focused on the product but how users interact. Apart from knowing design and art, you need knowledge in the field of psychology, sociology, communication, computing, and electrical engineering. The process of designing high-quality applications includes all mentioned areas in order to understand the users. The design is very important for a successful application, so make sure you don’t neglect design and destroy a potentially good application. In next chapter, you will read what you need to look out when you designing an app.

Simplicity
Users do not like unnecessary elements, they are often lost in the overwritten application screen and they will discard the potential purchase and use of your product. Provide users a simple view of essential information, organize your application to priorities for easier finding of information.

Use of color and style
Using the same style will define your visual identity and allow your clients to recognize your product. Test what colors, font selection, and text size will attract the attention of the user.

User Survey

GDPR and mobile applications

We have already written about GDPR, as you can see in our previous blogs, but it’s always good to repeat what GDPR is and how it affects us.

The General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR, was adopted in April of 2016. GDPR defines personal data information that could identify an individual. Identifiers may include names, phone numbers, addresses, as well as digital information such as usernames, locations and more. All companies and organizations need to adapt to this new regulation and have to pay attention when creating mobile applications.

What should we know if we want to make a mobile application according to GDPR regulation?
When you use a database that contains personal, confidential information, you always have to have permission to collect them, explain why you need it, who has access to it, how long you will keep that data and for what purpose are you going to use it. That’s why there is a checkbox that can’t be automatically checked as it was before. From now on, every person has to manually label every checkbox. One of the key things about mobile apps and GDPR is privacy by design, which means that the information we collect from a person needs to be just enough to use the app, for example, sex is not essential information for the app download and for using the app, so we don’t need to know that information . It is also important for each application development stage to take care of personal data security because every person who has access to personal information is responsible for them, so beware of what information you are looking for. In addition, your developers need to encrypt and protect all the data that moves between the application and the server. When making an application, you must ensure that users are allowed to make changes and delete their data. All organizations will need a system or process that will locate and remove certain data. This includes all the services and backup systems that data can not return from anywhere. You, as a company, will have to ask for a consent from the start unless you have the legal basis for processing data. This should include what data you collect and why you collect it.

You may need to invest in better technology to ensure continuous monitoring of your data. Also, you will have to have the backup plan. For application owners, both consumers and businesses, it’s crucial that you have full visibility and control over the real-time use and application activity in a centralized way.
