Mobile App Tactise Audits Image

Mobile App Tactise Audits

It helps to conduct audits at various levels using questionnaires with different types of questions. The user can create tasks and register hazard maps based on the results of audits.

The challenges:

To update the Tactise Audits mobile app and expand its functionality.
To develop a mapping module for additional visualization of working with audits.

The Solutions:


We have developed a ReactNative module based on the web version Leaflet.js. The module supports working with a tree list of maps, map zoom. We have implemented the functionality of marking on the map and dynamic change of map tiles.

·We have implemented the ability for auditors to mark applications, issues and disputes on the map. This greatly simplifies the work of auditors and helps them monitor the security system being at work. Thanks to our development, an employee of Tactise Audits can note identified shortcomings more accurately, mark specific places, find problems and correct them.

Spasibo from Sberbank Image

Spasibo from Sberbank

SPASIBO bonuses is a privilege for the holders of Sberbank debit cards. Bonuses are awarded for purchases using Sberbank debit cards.

The challenges:

 To implement a test version of one of the sections of the "Spasibo from Sberbank" service-Partners and offers; to develop the functionality of the section, make adaptive layout and provide filtering of offers.

 To configure the administrative

panel for managing the site content based on Bitrix; to implement a convenient structuring of the content.

The Solutions:

Creating a convenient and large rubricator is the best solution for this section. The user immediately sees those industries that can be useful to them by clicking the "Partners and offers" section. For example, Supermarkets or electronics and appliances. The offers of all Sberbank partners are divided into the relevant topics. We’ve also provided the viewing of all offers and sorting by popularity.

We have provided a switch between partners who accept and award bonuses-so you can immediately avoid confusion.

We have set up an administrative panel for managing content and made it easy to sort the material. The administrative panel has mandatory and optional fields to fill. You can sort partners as well as add additional data about partners – a link to the site, phone numbers. You can also divide partners into Federal and regional ones (they will only be displayed for residents of specific regions).

 

 

 

 

Commercial Port of Vladivostok website

The Vladivostok Sea Trade Port (VSTP) is one of the leading trade ports of Russia providing cargo shipping service all over the world. The VSTP is a part of the company “Fesco”.

The challenges: To design a corporate resource of qualitatively different approach. We had to integrate new developments for the company’s corporate identity as well as to provide the website

users with extensive information about a range of its services.

To pull together all the information flows - earlier all the information was scattered, it was needed to integrate a new entity every time.

The solutions: We integrated the client’s private account with 1C Customer’s. The client can look through all the history data of work with LLC (Limited Liability Company), make a new “Autovisit” of big vehicles into the Port and receive account statements. All this data are taken from 1C for a few seconds.

We provided the opportunity to order pedestrian and vehicle access into the territory of the VSTP. Request for access shows up in the system of the VSTP and the Border Service (it’s compulsory for the Port), this allows to increase the way of processing the data by several times.

We designed a unique estimation calculator to value exports for any part of Russia. The estimation of export directions are recorded in dollars, customers need to mark the total value in roubles for a current date. We integrated the dollar rate of the Central Bank of Russia into the calculator. Thus, a customer can know the cost of the cargo delivery online from any part of the world.

Each user can visit the section “Shipping lines map”, enter the date of a certain container and receive notice of the status of the shipping (its location).

From the information system of VSTP we daily receive notifications of the condition of the “Vessel”and send the data to the website and to the mobile application interface. Daily in this system a staff member updates the data on ships which enter the Port, we send the database online.

Having examined customer behaviour, we identified two client groups whose needs are completely different - new clients and current clients of the company. According to these requirements, the single structure was formed that is convenient for all types of users.

The tourist platform Shore Excursion Center

The challenges:

We had the challenge to design a resource convenient for certain tourists and tour agents who want to offer best tours for their clients. We had to make an optional navigation and to integrate a chat for the communication between tour agents and tourists.

The solutions:

In the private

office you can reserve a tour, make changes and cancel a tour. But, perhaps, the most interesting part is that in the private office you can make groups and invite your friends there who you want to travel with, share feedbacks and show the tours you are interested in. Tourists can communicate with a tour operator or a tour agent in the chat room. The button”Confirm” is very convenient. If a user entered the passport data in the private office, so the boxes such as nationality, name, surname and date of birth are automatically completed.

According to the user’s status, the private offices are divided into different types. To access at the private office users have to indicate their status - a tourist or a tour agent - and undergo authorization. In the private section of tourists “Bookings” the current data of reserved tours are displayed as well as the information about the past tours (“Tour History”).

Corporate website for the Admiral Hockey Club

The challenges: To create an adaptive design and optimize the site for convenient use from all types of devices and on various types of screens.

To structure the website space by placing a large number of sections and subsections on the resource so that all types of users can find the necessary information conveniently and with a minimum number of actions.

It

was necessary to create a strong image resource with complete information about clubs, players and teams as well as the ability to sell tickets online. 

The solutions: The website of the Admiral hockey club is regularly visited by a huge number of users. All users pursue different goals. We needed to organize the website structure and navigation in such a way that the search for the necessary information did not take up extra time despite the type of user and their aims. We conducted a serious analytical research that identified the main needs of users. Also we placed the menu block on the main page. It is divided into several sections and subsections, including information about the club, team, players, coaching staff, ticket sales, standings, future matches and etc.

We have made the Admiral website multifunctional and convenient. It functions as a corporate resource, an online store and an information portal. You can get to the online store or order tickets for the match from any page of the website. The user can easily find the rules for visiting the arena on the site, read the news of the club, see the schedule and enrol a child in a children's and youth school. Also a section for representatives of mass media and press services has been created. Thus, the user does not need to wander around the site to search for the necessary information. Just open the menu and see all the sections there.

Our analytical research revealed that one of the main problems of the previous website was the lack of adaptive design and the unavailability of many functions from mobile devices. We have created an adaptive design. Now the site is convenient to use both on a computer and a phone.

We used such design solutions as large high-quality images, large fonts, bright banners, tournament tables in one and the same style. The site is convenient for reading news and statistics on tournaments and players. The corporate style of the club is used with bright, not repulsive shades.

The official dealer center Volvo (the group of companies “AVILON”)

The challenges: To make the resource which will be stylistically different from other dealer centers, but at the same time it will meet all standards of the VOLVO brand. Special attention should be paid to the fact that the resource must provide a full range of services for the sale and service of vehicles. For regular improvement of the SEO-positions text blocks should be put on the website

which will be regularly updated.

The solutions: The system 1C-Customer was integrated into the website. In the section “Vehicles in store” the models of cars, sales, vehicle configuration and other information about cars are daily updated. The website users always know exactly which car and for what price they can buy vehicles in the showroom today.

The text block with background photographs are placed at the bottom of each page. Such a presentation of the information is correctly integrated in the structure of the website and it allowed to fulfil one of the goals within the SEO-advancement.

On the homepage of the website users can see a great amount of elements which lead to the inner pages designed for selling certain vehicles and services. So, the user can find the necessary information about certain vehicles and services for a few seconds on the homepage.

-        To make an attractive design and most convenient navigation for users, to provide customers with better feedback.

The solutions:

-        In the design of the website parallax-effects are used within scrolling. The chronology of the company development is presented from year to year in the form of infographics. In the creation of the website the corporate colours of the company were used - black, white and gold.

-        It has got a simple navigation of the website, the section “Score” is included where users can order any product of the company range. Customers can contact with a company specialist through a special form.

-        The vertical scrolling was chosen and the emphasis was focused on qualitative images to make the resource highly attractive.

Ordamed Group

This is a group of companies leading in the market of Korean medical equipment in Russia. This company connects brands of medical technology in different fields. Also it‘s a supplier of advanced technology into the Russian market. 

The challenges: To make a strong branding resource combining six fragmented websites of the company belonging to the holding of Ordamed

Group Russia. it was also required to provide each brand awareness and identity within a big single system. The major challenge was in that all the companies are diverse, they have their own history, brandbooks and design.

To integrate a product catalogue into the website according to the sections nd directions of the company as well as to provide all types of customers (dealers, owners and doctors of private clinics, doctors and leaders of state medical centers) with more detailed information about each product.

The solutions: We integrated the system BItrix24 into the website for convenience of staff members and customers where all the data are displayed left by customers as feedbacks. The data are addressed to specialists of certain companies depending on the type of request. For each company a private chat is integrated. Sch moves let us avoid confusion and systematise work with clients better.

We designed a convenient catalogue and the filter for all types of products depending on its belonging to the specific company. The catalogues are presented on the home page into all the company cards and in the main menu. We organized the navigation in a manner that a user can reach a needed page and get necessary information for a minimum amount of clicks.

The website of the international photo contest “Russian civilization”

The challenges:

To design a highly convenient website to hold the photo contest minimizing the main part of the content enough not to distract users’ attention from the contest projects.

The solutions: 

The website is designed in calm colours and harmoniously decorated with the symbol of the photo contest that doesn’t

distract from the main information whose size is limited to the possible extent. The work process of the website is based on a rapid and available posting of qualitative and beautiful photos. That’s why the accent of the site is made on visual content. There are not any complex integrations, lovely photographs of different parts of our country develop individuality of the website

The control system Django was chosen as the platform of the website which allows to get rid of unnecessary components that has a positive impact on comfort and speed of the administrative panel.

The private office of participants is designed in such a way that participants can easily upload their projects to the website. Also the possibility of multiple voting for the same work from a single IP address was excluded. Because nowadays every second person has an account in one of the social networking sites, the website interface was designed similar to the functional with the interface of a social networking site. It provides users with extra comfort dealing with the site. The photo contest was held for a long time and it meant ongoing uploading of projects, that’s why the server CDN was connected for the smooth operation of the website.

The telecommunication company “WestCall”

The challenges: 

To show which possibilities are presented in the company “WestCall” to a potential user as much as possible, to provide the website with different ways of feedback that allows to work with clients very quickly.

To make a corporate website with a strict dignified style. The website must show all the services provided and the possibilities of

the company. It is also needed to make a bright and greatly different design from other opponents.

The solutions:

The website mixes strictness of this business segment and brightness. There is not a pile of different effects hiding each other. The only effect is used which allows not to deform and present a full and interesting amount of information.

In the upper part of the menu there are separate business segments that they can draw attention: “medium business”, “large business”, “state sector”, “communication provider”. This is actual information what potential clients can find on each page.

The possibility of adding goods in the basket was made. After the goods are added, the sales manager gets notification to the mail that means a potential customer. Such a system allows to provide a pull of incoming requests for the connection that a sales manager can discuss all the details with a potential client.

The scrolling design was made with bright images of the segment B2B. During the work on the design of the website the accent was made on visual effects. Through the transfer between main sections the effect of rotating cube is used where each separate page presents a certain line. This is the main thing of the website. The using of such scrolling allows to turn absolutely static information into very dynamic and lively.

The website of the real estate development company “Renaissance Activ”

The challenges:

To integrate the system in the website which allows sales managers to monitor at any time which apartments are vacant, sold or reserved.

The construction field is always highly competitive, that’s why the main aim was to increase hit rate of the website. The simple and convenient website was needed to design which would be attractive for potential and

current customers.

The solutions: 

The navigation is designed in such a way that it is most convenient for users to find a certain apartment: for this purpose additional filters are included. A user can choose any proper residential areas on the website and any floor on the scheme, look at housing development and check the availability of vacant apartments on each floor. From the perspective of any entry customers can see how many apartments are vacant, their size and price.

On the website there is an integration with the resource “Homeclick” which allows all sales managers to work into one information field. Users can also see the current information, it’s available at the exact moment after a sales manager enters the information in the database.

The corporate colours of the company “Renaissance Activ” were used. The company logo is orange, that’s why we needed to find an intelligent combination. The website is designed in black and orange colour patterns that looks quite balanced.

The company “Jet Stone”

The company “Jet Stone” is a leader in the field of processing natural and artificial stones in Moscow.

The challenges:
 To make a website which shows all the productive capacity of the company and focuses the customer’s attention on its global projects.

 To present the information more clearly and simpler than that it was on the previous

website and at the the same time to save some part of the text information that was really interesting and necessary for potential customers, for example, the description of technology which is used in the company. 

The Solutions:

-       The system Django was chosen as a management system. The advantage of this platform is that it allowed to make the administrative part of the website highly convenient  - the company “Jet Stone” doesn’t have any website specialists.
-       For the company portfolio we made a big separate section including two subdivisions: exteriors and interiors. All the information is presented as a gallery with professional qualitative photographs.
-       We offered to focus on already made projects of the company, because the projects are really global and made with high quality.

The first professional simulator in the field of public utilities “ZHEKA-PROFI”

The challenges:

· It was necessary to make a multi-functional and public system that allows you to explore the space of an apartment building online, find and solve problems at

home.

The Solutions:

· 3D models of apartment buildings used in the simulator are made according to the drawings of the most popular series of residential buildings in Russia. We needed to develop a virtual simulator that would completely replace the practical experience in a specific home. Analyzing the technical condition of an apartment building a specialist can examine the structural elements of the house or go to the nearby area. We have integrated pop - up information windows and help in text, audio and video formats into the system with the help of which you can learn about the characteristics and problems of the house.

· The ability to monitor ongoing changes in the technical condition of a virtual apartment building after the user has eliminated the identified defects and violations is added. Each user's action is taken into account when completing the task , points are awarded according to the correctness and timeliness of performed actions.

- To structure the website, to make a simple and

convenient navigation. To structure a large catalogue which contains a lot of goods of different directions.
- To integrate the company’s brand book.

The solutions:

 -       The company “Luch” has got its own brand book and certain scale and colour scheme which can be used for making the website design. The accent was made on the content. That’s why the customer was offered to make smart illustrations of the product.
-       This is a large plant which works not only for Russia and for 20 countries. A certain responsible staff member stands for each country. We implemented a convenient functional on the website: in the section “Contacts” users can choose their regions, then the information about a personal manager is loaded who can be phoned or sent email.

Project management on that side was perfect as we didn’t experience any difficulties. They delivered everything on time, and we didn’t spend more than we planned on the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and owner of UlkoTours. We work with inbound tourism in Scandinavia, the Baltics, and Russia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Garpix?

We needed to build our tourism platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Garpix has done multiple projects for us. First, they redesigned our website and conducted backend updates. Also, they built a platform with a shopping experience for customers and a CRM connected to that platform. The platform will be launching soon, connecting to two additional websites.

For the platform, I gave them examples of what I wanted as well as wrote technical descriptions and requirements. Garpix took these wireframes and developed the platform in Python. It has similar functions to other travel platforms that are online travel agencies (OTA) that serve global customers.

We have a similar engine, but it’s different because we’re the operators of the tours and it’s not a third-party re-selling them. Garpix adjusted the generalized engine used on those platforms to meet our specific requirements, building several features and functions.

For one feature, we have a focus on cruises. The customer comes to the site, chooses the cruise line they prefer, inputs dates, and the system pulls up their itinerary, showing all the destinations available. It shows the number of tours with descriptions outlining the cost and available languages for that tour. Customers are then able to book their cruise, put it in the cart, and pay for it. They can also access their account to manage reservations.

Travel agents have the ability to make reservations for their clients, and in that case, both parties have access to the account. If the client makes changes, the agent is notified. Agents can choose tours and create a separate page with their recommendations for the client to see.

Garpix also developed a group plan feature. The agent can plan the trip for each individual, billing them separately. Then each individual can pay their portion rather than the traditional method of the entire group needing to pay the agent before the cruise can be completely reserved.

What is the team composition?

I worked with one project manager.

How did you come to work with Garpix?

I’m not sure because it was several years ago.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested between $50,000–$60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our partnership began in 2015, however, this specific engagement lasted from June–December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

So far, so good. Everything is completely online and that’s huge progress for us. What’s more, the internal feedback has been very positive. Our agents and clients enjoy the ease of the system. They’ve highlighted its UI and expressed that it’s easy to understand the logic of the site.

When we started uploading the information to make the platform live, there were some bugs. However, Garpix promptly resolved them for the most part.

How did Garpix perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager emailed me progress reports almost every day. She was thorough in providing all the necessary documents. It was my responsibility to put all tasks into Trello, and then they transferred them into their own project management tool. The project was completed on time and within budget.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate how they go the extra mile to provide more effective solutions and suggestions. Sometimes I’m unaware of how certain processes should be done. They’re good about letting me know if my ideas aren't cost- or time-efficient by presenting alternative solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I prefer issues, like bugs, to be handled within a day and I expect immediate support. Often times, Garpix wouldn’t provide immediate support because their policy is dependent on an arbitrary support plan. Personally, I need a higher support level.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My only advice is to be as specific as possible.
