Amber CRM - system designed for remote business management. Our team designed, developed, and tested this Android app.
Amber CRM is a cloud-based system for small and medium-sized businesses that allows users to manage day-to-day processes, assign tasks for employees, and communicate with customers. The app helps employees work outside of the office, while managers can control projects even on vacation or during business trips.
Many companies that use Amber CRM have remote employees. The client wanted to create a mobile application in order to make it more convenient for them to carry out daily tasks and achieve set KPIs.
The majority of remote employees use Android devices.
We needed to develop an app for this platform that would make it simple and convenient to access the system from a smartphone and tablet.
We needed to write a CRM client that would work offline and be able to process a large enough amount of local data and media files for a mobile application.
In order to make the app as user-friendly as possible (i.e. smoothly scroll through tasks, contacts, transactions, and more), we had to abandon the classical object model and use metadata caching in the form of hash tables in memory.
By installing the mobile app, Amber CRM users can still work even when there is no computer nearby. Client information, transactions, and planned and completed tasks are now available on Android devices.

StayTonight - online hotel booking platform
Online hotel booking platform. Our team created the adaptive web service and admin panel.
StayTonight is a database of hotels that is made exclusively for travelers. Hotel owners can rent their rooms at the last moment and earn money, while travelers can find great deals and book a room for less — a win-win situation for both sides!
A startup from St. Petersburg came to the WINFOX team and wanted to make an alternative platform for hotel reservations. The target audience were travelers who could not find a suitable option or could not rent rooms through well-known services like Booking.com or Ostrovok.
“[Our client] wanted to verify that competitors could enter a saturated market and stay in it by offering lower prices and a more flexible room management system. To test this hypothesis, it was necessary to develop a completely new service."
Head of WINFOX
Now hotel owners can manage their business from anywhere, while travelers can book hotel rooms with ease. Best of all, it can all be done from a smartphone.
Using the service, it was possible to verify and confirm the hypothesis of the client. Our client realized that the idea works, and it’s possible to earn money from it.
“We conducted automated stress testing and the service withstood very high loads. If [a client] runs a large advertising campaign where there will be many conversions, it will not go down. ”

AutoTax application automates accounting and helps pay taxes on time.
We designed an application that helps small businesses and LLCs to choose a taxation system, maintain their accounting, and manage their warehouse directly from a smartphone.
The reliable and intuitive AutoTax application automates accounting and helps pay taxes on time. With the app, any person — even without an accounting degree! — can do business anytime, anywhere.
The WINFOX team was contacted by a Moscow-based company that provides accounting and tax planning services. Besides their main business, our client wanted to develop a start-up that’s similar to their current repertoire of services.
To make a complex task simpler, one needs to understand it thoroughly. We plunged into the study of accounting processes - thankfully, an experienced accountant from the client’s side helped us with this.
“Together, we simplified the application and the processes that came with it. We made it convenient and correct in terms of accounting and taxation regulations. Therefore, the service meets all applicable accounting standards in Russia.”
Valery Sorokin, WINFOX Project Manager
We wrote out all the entities from the subject area and built connections between them. Based on these dependencies, we had a meaning map that reflected all possible user scenarios.
After that, we described all of the application functions and user scripts in a detailed technical task. With this document, we could develop the app and then hand it off to the programmer to make the app the way it was originally intended to be.
In 7 days, we designed 143 screens and assembled an interactive prototype from them in the Marvel App.
We made a prototype of a universal, simple, and intuitive application for entrepreneurs who do not know accounting in-depth, but want to perform typical operations directly from their smartphone.
Instead of having several applications, the business owner can now use one to save time and money.
