Creating a new app is a quite the process. It starts with an idea, an plan, the construction process and ends with a test phase. That is exactly how we did it as well. At the end of 2014 the idea derived to build a packaging app, owner Ernst Tjaden of the consultancy company Tconsult saw this as the ultimate solution for the consulting issues he was dealing with.
After the idea was fully elaborated, the construction process began with our technical partners. That went smoothly and fast and we were able to keep track of the progress on a weekly basis. Fascinating to see how an idea develops into something real. Last summer it was finally time, we had an app, a mvp, a version 0.0! A true successs and almost immediately we started with a pilot group for a couple of weeks.
In the pilot, two different aspects were tested, both the application and the online portal. TellApe was tested by both the driver and the administration. After five weeks, we got the feedback back from the participants. Very positive!
Impulseplants is an inventive company from Brabant that exports plants. At Impulseplants, everyone is always ready to fulfill the wishes of the customer, no matter how special they are. Impulseplants also operates on a daily basis with a fixed group of growers, communication therefor is immediate and fast. The direct and fast method ensures that Impulseplants has countless customers abroad. The amount of growers and customers has resulted in an slightly unclear packaging situation to register and control, Impulsplants needed a solution.
Through an online search, Ad van Ballegooijen, project consultant at Impulseplants, joined TellApe. Very enthusiastically he started the pilot, suspecting that he had found the solution to his packaging problem. He introduced several drivers, all of whom drive for Impulseplants with the company’s own vehicles, and began testing. That worked well! The drivers could easily find their way through the workflow of the app, and Ad same simply logged on on the portal. The generated data was clear and tidy, in short, Ad told us after a week, “This is exactly what I was looking for, this way I get my packaging situation under control!”
At a later stage, Ad would like to print the receips of the transactions, a signature feature and a voucher in pdf. We are going to get started on that immediately Ad.
