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.

Newsletter

If you know how to use and properly write newsletters you will have great benefits from them. With a nicely arranged and written newsletter, you can expand your customer base, meet customers with your new product, boost re-collaboration, and more. It’s a great way to get to know new and existing customers with the current offer and current deals. Customers generally decide on a service or product when they feel that it will be the best for them. In addition to the newsletter calling for action, it can have an informative character, but also a combination of both.

The newsletter can be general and unique to all recipients but it also can be personalized, which will double the chance of interaction. But as always, everything has its own positive and negative side. The problem is also the large number of emails that users receive in the mailbox and many of them remain unread. Your mail should be prominent which is a very difficult task.

It is also worth mentioning the upcoming GDPR regulation and spreading the awareness of personal data protection. We should not pick up all the addresses that are available in our database and on the internet and sending newsletters to as many addresses as possible. By the GDPR, if we want to send the newsletter, we should have permitted for it. This gives us the opportunity to think better and do a better job by focusing on clients who are really interested in our products and services.

When we put together all the positive and negative sides, the positive ones prevail. Anyway, the newsletter will surely be kept for a long time.

5 REASONS WHY YOUR RESTAURANT NEEDS A MOBILE APP

 

In this text, we’ll try to explain why you should have a mobile app for your restaurant.  So let’s move on.

 

Keeping Existing Customers

Your regular guests already know about your restaurant or cafe, and they are happy, but with your new mobile app, they can order their favorite food, see the offer of the day, Happy Hour offer, a new menu, a complete price list, pictures of dishes etc … They will probably be even more satisfied. Your regular guests will be the first ones to use the app and, most likely, give you a good reference,  which leads us to the reason number 2.

The fast and effective way to the new guests

Today, all we need is Internet to see where we want to go out and have a nice meal, cocktail or just a coffee. If we have an application through which we can order food or reserve a place in the restaurant, and that place has great reviews in its mobile app, it will be a bait for many new guests.

Awarding loyal customers

You can reward your loyal guests with various discounts. Statistics say that most guests choose a particular restaurant if it has a loyalty program. If you are a pizza place owner, give members of the club every seventh pizza free.

Connecting application to the social networks

If the guests are satisfied with the service, they will probably share their pictures of the restaurant and especially food on the social networks. And that again has the potential to reach a large number of people. Besides the pictures, many people will also write about a positive experience.

More efficient staff – more satisfied guests

Ordering through the app will eliminate errors in the communication channel and the possibility of a human error. The waiter will not “write” the order incorrectly and the customer won’t be dissatisfied with the order. The application will leave the staff more time to focus on the guests at the restaurant and to provide better service.

 

In the end, if all the successful restaurants are getting the app, this is definitely a great investment, and if you decide to do the same, you will probably very quickly return the investment.

Webshop & GDPR

You have a webshop, GDPR and 25.05.2018. are coming closer and you are not sure what to do … You collect a lot of data: name, surname, address, credit card information … You store those data, share them with the delivery service and you are responsible for them. Whether a customer buys with or without his or her account, he/she has the right to the information to whom you share his/her data, how long you will keep them and in which purpose they will be processed. The person also has the right to request the deletion of its data. Implement technical and organizational protection measures. Remove “This page uses cookies-I agree” caption. Explain briefly, clearly, concisely and understandable to the user why this is useful for him/her and invite him/her to action to mark the checkbox. As we wrote earlier, the checkbox shouldn’t be pre-marked. The same thing is with opt-in forms. Tell your customers in what purpose their emails will be used. Do not accumulate a lot of purposes at once, do not send a newsletter notification if the buyer only wants an offer from you. Play fair and customers will surely appreciate it. Keep all collected consent and pay attention to the lifespan. Please update your data on request. Delete data on request. Inform the buyer about any possible violation of his or her data.

 

Be honest, professional and responsible towards your customers – this is the key to long-term success!

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.
