Creating the Difference
App Design’s core philosophy is simple. We believe in harnessing the power of technology to bring your ideas to life.
Our diverse team of software designers, developers, and analysts are on hand to guide you through the process with clear and concise information, advice, and consultation.
We don’t use jargon and we never rely on “technobabble”. We believe in explaining things simply, and in plain English.
We combine cutting edge technology with open, and honest, communication to deliver innovative apps, bespoke software and beautiful websites.
From Fortune 500s to start-ups, we have worked with them all! Some of our latest clients include: Hertz, Paddy Power, Avis/Budget, Volkswagen Bank, Coillte, PlayUs GAA, Kverneland, appraisee/PMC, CF Ireland.
For Hertz, a well designed and functioning dashboard was essential for the success of the Hertz app. This combined with a Customer Portal for users to Pre-Inspect their rental cars and complete Online Incident Report forms ensured an excellent user experience for Hertz customers.
Hertz approached us with a bold vision, to completely re-imagine their current paper-based process and produce a vehicle rental booking system fit for the future.
Following an extensive development process we succesfully deployed a customized software package for Hertz which has handled over 2 million transactions to date.
Bryan from Hertz said: “We contacted the App Design team with the idea to develop a unique iOS enterprise application and web service for both our customers and staff to offer improved transparency in the car rental sector. App Design's professional approach and ability to understand our objective made for a simple and straightforward process which is clearly reflected in our now integral Hertz Vehicle Pre-Inspection (VPI) app. The level of support received from Colm and the App Design team continues to impress. I would have no hesitation in recommending App Design for your app development and web design needs.”
Currently, the app is used in every Hertz rental depot in Ireland and Portugal, managing bookings for 90% of all their customers, and has completely revolutionized the car rental for both the customer and Hertz staff. By making the rental and booking process completely transparent, accountable and simple.

In an effort to increase customer satisfaction and convert generated leads and queries into sales faster, Paddy Power wanted to harness the power of Facebook Messenger.

App Design also developed an admin dashboard for Coillte to manage users of the mobile app.
Speaking about the project, Grainne from Coillte commented:
“We were very impressed with the App Design team have done and invited them to meet with us to explore how best to develop an idea but limit the data to a certain market. Our company will be happy to use App Design going forward and recommend the brand to other companies.”
Maintaining over 440,000 hectares of Ireland’s forests and woodland is no easy task. Prior to contacting App Design, it was a painstakingly slow job for Coillte employees and contractors who had to manually cross reference the 11,000 separate forest entrance points, when seeking access forest or woodland to carry out maintenance or repair work.
Coillte contacted App Design to help them solve this issue and were delighted by the finished product.
Today, Coillte Site Routes allows contractors to quickly search, locate and navigate to any of the forest entrance points in a sleek, easy to use app. The biggest benefit of the app to date is the time saved by Coillte contractors operating on these sites.

As a start-up, Music Momentum needed to gain an online presence to market the app. As part of the brief, App Design developed a stylish website to enable customers searching for Music Momentum online, to easily see the functions and features the app has to offer.
App Design was approached by Music Momentum to help bring their vision to reality. The app development process aimed to create software which enables people to improve their fitness levels with the power of music! With App Design’s expert team, an excellent product was achieved.
Today, the app is helping people of all levels to maintain their fitness goals. Users can create their Personalized Target Speed (PTS) of running/walking. While working out, users are then notified by the app if they fall below that speed. Music played via the app slows down the further away you are from your PTS, encouraging users to speed up. App Design’s timely project delivery has enabled Music Momentum to help people of all fitness levels to achieve their fitness goals. Click here to watch a short video.
