Creating and establishing a new user flow on the market
Voltee, as an innovation in the smart city industry, had no user flows. Every process, every interaction with the hardware and software needed to be designed from scratch. To be agile, we started with paper sketched user flows, then built a paper box hardware prototype so we could test our designs on potential users.
Keeping up with the rapid Hardware changes
Our initial challenge was to match the software development to a complex and regularly changing hardware. This meant that we needed to continuously pivot the user flows to create and maintain effortless user experience. We installed a test hardware in our office that we could continuously test, and perform regular stress tests to reveal long-term performance issues.
Aligning the extended project team
With a complex product, a large team came along on both sides. We needed to keep everyone in line and keep the focus for the whole team. Daily standups, continuous synchronization, and constant communication with the client were part of our toolset to make communication as effective as possible.
WORKING WITH DIGITAL NATIVES
They say it is ultimately the people you choose when selecting a company, and I could not agree more. Digital Natives has a great team of professionals who shared our vision in improving urban life from the start, and who are also fun to work with.
