Mobile app development

New video-sharing app in development

Record, send, receive and forget. New app from VideoFlipp aims to make video sharing smarter and easier.

Applicate IT has in cooperation with the people behind VideoFlipp, initiated a project of developing a new mobile app for both private users as well as companies.

The app will be based on a video recording feature, that lets private users record and share it easy to another user. The core feature is that the receiver of such a video does not have to be in possession of the VideoFlipp app.

For paying customers, will the users of VideoFlipp from a company or private family be able to share the recorded videoes to a shared video feed in the cloud. From the cloud the individual videoes can be further managed according to either marketing purposes, documentation, and much more.

Applicate IT are happy for the collaboration and looks forward to design, develop and deliver the finished product to VideoFlipp.

Appy Days case 2014: from manufacturing to service

Applicate IT participated in the Appy Days competition, about becoming the Danish campion of App development. Simply put, the competition was about developing the best App in just a day and a half.  

 

 

Exciting Monday

On Monday, the first day of the competition, we met expectant up at the premises of Silkeborg Business College. We were here, received during the early morning by a good mood and combat-ready companies. After a short introduction by the excellent facilitator Lasse Chor, we got a short pitch by each case team.  

The teams were matched, and then we were off to begin.  

Most of Monday afternoon was spent discussing the solution thoroughly with Sam System. In order to the solution our clients wanted, we had to get under the skin of their business. Because of that we started inquiring about Sam Systems strategy, their market, competitive situation etc. etc. Afterwards we had a complete understanding of what kind of solution Sam Systems needed, and we could start production. 

Internet of Products

Sam Systems produces embedded software for controlling tank trucks, including lights, rolling up the hoses, regulating the pressure in the hoses and handling of chambers in the tank. The system is controlled form a touchscreen permanently mounted on the side of the truck, but the driver is often not within range of the screen. This gives downtime, which is a big disadvantage, as it can cost up to DKK 10,000 an hour to have a tanker stationary. The solution was therefore to equip driers with an App to operate the truck instead. 

 

Beacons are part of the solution

Applicate IT came up with a solution that created value all the way throughout their value-chain, by amongst other things introducing Beacons and handling offline challenges. Sam System can with our solution, take their first steps from production-company into becoming a service company.

Winner of Appy Days 2013

The competition was held at Performers House, Papirfabrikken in Silkeborg, where small as well as large IT companies were participating in developing the best mobile app in just 3 days.

Applicate IT was matched with HS Tarm that produces heating systems to danish homes. HS Tarm had a strong desire to optimize their support of the technicians. In place of a cumbersome process, where a technician has to call to the support center, HS Tarm sought a solution in which the technician could announce and publish any error-code information in an app.
