Billing and payments, simple as handing cash

Memory is the leading Uruguayan enterprise in management solutions for companies and accountant studios, and in 2016 they decided to take a step forward and bring their services to the hands of as many clients as they could.

Bills, bills, bills

Memory teamed up with us looking for a way to make their service as accessible as possible to their clients, and provide them with new an automatic,

and easy way to create and emit bills.

Development & partnership

We worked with Memory for a year in developing the first electronic billing system in the country. We also created Express Bills, a platform created for users to pay simple bills and receive their paycheck online. The project is still under our constant maintenance and surveillance.

Roomating done right

UX & UI

When people share expenses, whether it’s in a household between roommates, a group of friends throwing a party, or families going on a trip, it’s usual to find someone who feels that they’ve spent more money, and troubles arise because of this. SplitSpend is the solution to every money-splitting related issue.

SplitSpend is all about preserving relationships in a good place by

maintaining expense sharing equal and fair. We took care of creating a new identity that looked up to date yet timeless and expressed through visual elements, the feeling of caring for their users, and viewing everyone as equal.

Guiding users from the very first moment they come into contact with the app, in a friendly yet loose way, is planting the seed for a long lasting relationship.

Divided into three parts - Recent activity, Shopping list, and History - the Dashboard offers the main features of the app at first glance. The Recent tab gives an overall view of the personal and group finances, including personal balance, missing items notifications, overall progress, and a preview of the recent purchases and who made them.

The Shopping List is the core of the app, helping every group organize the items that have to be purchased. For example, users are allowed to create lists for different rooms in a household, including or excluding users from specific items by just clicking on their photo. This way, when the purchase is made, they’re automatically taken into account -or not- for the group balance.

Customer tracking, simple as it gets

Custom Web CRM

We built a custom made CRM, allowing SURA’s employees to keep track of every user-company interaction, in only one platform, and recording all the relevant data to ensure a better response time and overall service.

ADDED SOLUTION - LeadsHub

Service dedicated to grouping every digital channel and automatically process and identify prospects

prone to converting into clients through intelligence, with the advantage of scheduling massive actions such as sending app notifications or emails.

 

On demand streaming with a twist

Native iOS App

Antel, the leading Internet and telephone service provider in Uruguay decided to create one of a kind streaming service, for their clients to enjoy their optic fiber services to the fullest.

VeraTV is designed to provide on-demand streaming of a wide TV Channel range wherever its users are. The in-app marketplace allows users to buy even more content than they already possess,

as well as bookmarking their favorite channels and scheduling reminders in order not to miss their favorite content.

Added value

  • Highlights & favorite content
  • Main menu with every functionality
  • Available shows

Exclusive content for everyone

Special events and soccer games live streaming, as well as exclusive shows content is the main focus of Vera+. Each user has access to exclusive streaming events, brought to them by the biggest Internet provider in Uruguay, in their own pockets.

Marketing, team and product management, re-defined

MOBILE & WEB APP

Bimbo is the biggest LATAM bread provider, with over X years on their shoulders, and over X countries in their hands, they needed a tailored solution that would transform the way their employees carry out their duties.

Assessing the core issue

Every Bimbo supervisor is in charge of checking the different salespoints, in order to

maintain the quality associated with their products. The data volume they manage in these controls is big, to say the least, and the handwriting process is time consuming and limiting.

Benefits for every area

Through our app, they can check every salespoint in a quick, with the advantage of including pictures in their reports. This also guarantees real-time available data in the backend web app, so managers can take action as soon as possible. The app then becomes a fundamental tool that provides them with access to updated contracts, promotions, etc.

Instant debit card assignment, delivery on demand

WEB APP

Scotiabank is one of the world-renowned banks and they worked alongside us in the creation of a web app that solved a crucial problem for their customers.

Adapting to new rules

Every time a company hires a new employee in Uruguay, due to laws, an account associated with a debit card must be created so employees can cash out their salaries through a

safe method, and so the request for debit cards increased. Every request for a new account used to require employees to be physically present at one of the branches of the bank, and Scotiabank wanted to craft a solution that would allow their clients to request debit cards from anywhere, anytime, as well as setting up the delivery of the cards.

Get your card anytime, anywhere

We created a web platform for debit card assignment, associated with paycheck accounts. Users can request their card by submitting their personal data. Once the previous step is done, a request for a new account is activated in the bank, as well as setting the delivery of the product. The main goal is engaging clients in a systematic way, with benefits for both the user and the company. Users don’t have to waste time going to the bank, and the bank makes better use of account executives.

Communicate the feeling

Web App (.NET)

Coca-Cola Uruguay has over 700 direct-employees. As in every big company, human resources management and internal communication is always a challenge, and they decided to face it with us alongside them.

Communication is key

Coca-Cola required us to create a solution to improve information fluidity between employees and collaborators, as well

as sharing special events held by the company, such as meetings, birthday parties, and training, among other activities.

Development & partnership

We created a private intranet adjusted to their requirements. The project was developed over a period of two years, including maintenance and it held positive results regarding the distribution of their information as well as interest and involvement of their employees.

In-house product tracking, made simple

Web App (.NET)

Salus is the biggest water and drinkable products provider in Uruguay. They manage massive amounts of products bottled and printed every day, and they looked for us in order to find a solution to their biggest stock problem.

Lost products equal lost work

Every bottle produced at one of the Salus parks carry a tag along with them. Tags used to be printed yet

when one of them went missing, the product was taken for lost as well. Salus reached out to us looking to solve this issue.

Going beyond expectation

The web platform takes care of managing the different tags, where they are placed, their expiring date, reports, internal messaging as well as printing them, solving their problem altogether, and providing tracking mechanisms to identify problems in their plants.

Lugagge location, easy as it gets

iOS Application

Tale as old as travel

Every time we travel abroad, we are aware of the possibility of missing our luggage, perhaps due to the flight company’s mistake. It could also happen by mistakenly leaving it in a cafe, or even in the trunk of a cab. All of these possibilities are solved through GeoTrakr.

Luggage loss,

solved

Paired with Samsonite, this app allows users to keep track of their luggage’s location through a device placed in it. And it also allows users to locate more than one suitcase, as long as each one of them has the device inside.

Added value

  • Device pairing tutorial included in the app
  • Multiple device pairing
  • GeoTrakr device stats (on/off, battery, and Bluetooth usage)
  • Help center & Samsonite marketplace in-app

Life quality improved & ensured

Native Android & iOS App

The main goal was bringing Sura’s services to a whole new level, and make them as available as possible to as much of their clientele as we could. This is when we decided to go for an iOS & Android app, where their main mobile services could be found in a drop of a hat, and also bring other not so simple services to an intuitive level.

To make this app a

reality, we had to switch our thinking mode and put ourselves in the shoes of the clients, and when we did, a basic question arose: Is this an app that people would keep on their phones? Insurance services are not something that people use everyday unless they’re going through a rough patch, so why would anyone keep it in their everyday life, if they’re not going to use it? The answer came after some pondering, but it fitted appropriately to the whole concept: the app had to reinforce the concept of safety through it’s UX, just so clients would know, in case anything happened, they could solve it instantaneously.

The top services were listed in big and clear buttons in the main page of the app, and other services, such as a quick help phonecall, knowing how much would an insurance policy cost, monthly billing, etc. These worked out in an excellent way with the public, yet they brought surprises, as people started to test it, they wanted more. And so, the app started to grow adding services like keeping track of the state of cars in body shops, when the tow truck is arriving, or online bill payment, and keeps on growing to this date

The mall experience, renewed

Native Android & iOS App designed to locate the user, the store he/she’s looking for, and tracing the quickest route for them to get as fast as possible to the store.

Location, location, location

The mobile app is the solution we decided was best for the mall. The main feature within the app is the map. Designed to locate the user, the store he/she’s looking for, and tracing the

quickest route for them to get as fast as possible to the store, without losing time. Another feature within the app is the store list. Every store gets its unique space for a description, picture, and also news, such as discounts or new products inside their catalog, keeping every user informed of any information they might find useful.

Fluidity and transformation

Malls usually change structure all the time, new stores open, spaces are divided or new ones are added. Melancia, being a recent one, is used to changing and expanding, and so, the biggest challenge we faced in terms of development, was keeping the map’s structure fluid and updated, with proper coordinates, so the tracing system would work efficiently in real time.

Redefining product visibility through merchandising

Merchants have a major role in the growth of products with massive sales, for they are the employees present at the Points of Sale and get direct access to key information, which is then used by marketing and sales departments to create strategies. 

Firstly, it was creating a mobile app for merchants, where they can locate where the P.O.S. is through GPS, also gather, and save all the information

regarding their product at the moment, with or without Internet Connection. The second stage came as an addition and a necessity that surged from the usage of the mobile app.

The web app adds task management and resource optimization to GuTrade. Higher-ups or the people in charge of marketing the product inside the company were now allowed to create tasks, assign routes and notes to merchants while keeping track of their overall performance in all of the previous tasks. The mobile app was also updated and expanded to interact with the desktop app, merchants were now able to receive all the things they should do in a day, straight from their managers, in a clean, straightforward and simple way.

The two previous platforms opened a new dimension where information about the status of the product in each P.O.S. is available in real time. Processing and showing this info in a visual and understandable way is the latest layer of GuTrade, where the sales and marketing team find the biggest benefit, take action according to the status of their product with no lags and no misunderstandings.
