User Problems

Tipquick is focused on providing efficiency and improvements in the construction business. Apart from saving time and money, this app makes construction jobs easier and more pleasant. When a user needs to remove waste from buildings or construction sites, Tipquick will be able to provide these services within a few clicks.

One of the challenges faced while developing the app was understanding how all of the tips were categorized. For example, different names were used for the same materials. So our biggest challenge was to figure out ways to make it easier for users to understand what they are searching for. We managed to overcome this challenge by defining and reviewing categories that are used currently and coming with a very high level and specific categories.

Business Problems

Before starting the actual development process, different groups of the target audiences were interviewed and multiple surveys were conducted. Upon analyzing the data from the research, it was found that people involved in the construction field were desperately looking for a platform to connect, and to solve their problems. For example, removing waste from buildings or construction sites, having a hard time finding tips in real time, and so on.

EB Pearls came up with an app idea to support users in the construction field, by assisting with construction waste management, showing nearby tips and allowing users contact the tip providers.

Process

Discovery

A workshop was conducted in order to discuss all the main features of the project. After that, a product backlog was created including non-functional and functional requirements. Subsequently, all the screens were connected creating a wireframe to test user engagement at the initial stage. With the wireframe, our UI team developed the main few screens of the app in order to define the ‘design direction’. Only then, other screens were created using atomic design principles.

 

User Stories

User stories

User stories

The entire project is based on user stories, in order to receive a clarification from the end user. This certainly offers consistency in the app with regard to why and what particular feature the user wants

Backlog creation

Backlog creation

The Scrum team completed a list of items in a sprint focusing on the details of how they will be implemented as well as the effort needed to build them. Typically, these items were user stories that presented value for a user.

Backlog grooming

Backlog grooming

The team was involved in the process of defining user stories and breaking up big items to small tasks to prioritize important tasks. This process was a powerful tool to keep the team focused on the strategic trajectory of the product roadmap. Also,  the regular backlog grooming allowed teams to more easily align with their workloads and make sure that the entire project is on track.

Design Sprint

Design Sprint

The design sprint ensured everyone is on the same page and resulted in a successful collaboration of the team. Performance, plan and progress were shared with the client by prototyping and the testing of solutions.

User testing

User testing

Usability testing definitely played an important role in making the app successful. The designers used data from the testing, instead of just designing based on assumptions. This testing allowed product teams to find any problems before it reached the end-users. It also helped to identify early bugs, which allowed the smoother launch of the app.

Highlight of Tipquick

  • Find a Tip: The users are able to search for the required tip based on the location provided. The users of the app will then be able to contact the tip provider using this screen to click on “Contact” which will direct the users to in-app contact.
  • What are you tipping?: By clicking on the “Search” button, a list of the materials will pop up and allow the users to filter tips by materials taken. Users are able to select their specific waste materials from this list or by typing in the search bar. Users can then provide the quantity of material that they need to tip. The users will then be shown tips that are able to accommodate both their material type and quantity.

Retrospective

Learning

Learning

Learning

The first thing we learned while developing Tipquick is a good User Interface (UI) needs to be explicit and the user must be able to use the app easily without looking at any tutorials. Also, prototyping and testing the mobile app were equally as important. That is the reason the testing was done with real customers and feedback was collected to make necessary changes.

We are planning to continue to work on the upcoming designs and features. Currently, we are launching phase one and we will continue to work on prioritizing specific requirements while launching the next phase.
