It is the process of understanding your whole vision and gathering requirements for your app before heading into app development.
Think of it like hiring a building architect to design a house before you hire the builder.
Guardian provides the tools for everyday people to install, service and maintain the status and functionality of AEDs. By providing this service, Guardian is giving people the confidence to be in control and trust that they are prepared for an emergency if one were to arise.
AED’s are used in emergency situations, therefore it is crucial they are constantly functioning at an optimal standard in case they are required immediately.
Monitoring these devices is a simple process but is often left to technical support teams to undergo a few times a year. Guardian is a platform for the user to provide this service to ensure the device is operating as it should at any time of the day.
Guardian puts the user in control wth the ability to independently install, monitor and maintain AED. The integration of Bluetooth features allows the user to manage the status and functionailty of the device from the ease of a mobile application.
When we took on this project, the Founder already had an existing back end developer and had previously built an infrastructure. Our team was responsible for the front end development and a complete UI build to bring the project to life.
Guardian, who are funded by Westpac, created this project on the basis of saving lives. We as a company are proud to have worked with them to create a product that seamlessly integrates the required technology and delivers this service.
The direction for the Guardian UI was designed with the intention of creating a friendly and approachable interface. This was achieved by the addition of simple illustrations scattered throughout the app and accompanied by the soft and clean colour palette. The content within the app is highly visual, therefore the UI was designed in a way that adds only necessary functionality while keeping within the brands personality.
As an IOT, Guardian required the safe integration of sensors and software with other operating systems. These Bluetooth sensors were crucial to providing accurate and real-time data to the user. With the technical support of App Boxer, our team was able to produce a fully-functioning React Native App that enabled the user to install, monitor and maintain the status of any AED device.
