SmartSense encountered a challenge when installing sensors became a manual and time-consuming process. This resulted in slower installations per day and raised maintenance costs, which damaged their brand as a global leader. To enhance customer satisfaction and improve their operational efficiency, they needed to find a solution to streamline their sensor installation process.

MVP (Minimum Viable Product)


Our team developed a custom mobile app to help SmartSense streamline their time-consuming and manual sensor installation process. The app enables field technicians to scan sensors and link hardware devices to facility locations in real-time and provide maintenance alerts. This has improved the efficiency and accuracy of facility management, enabling technicians to work faster and with greater precision. As a result, productivity has increased and customer satisfaction has improved.

Our team identified the problems and needs of SmartSense users, as well as the company's goals of improving operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. Based on this information, we designed a mobile app called 'Install' that allows technicians to scan sensors and connect them to a location in real-time.

Our team built an initial prototype with a scanner and back-end data transmission. We tested the prototype with a job order from a supermarket chain and used the feedback to improve and refine the product's quality.

Our team underwent a re-organization to work more closely with SmartSense's development team across various projects, such as SmartSense NEXT, Safetemps and SmartSense core platform. This way, our team seamlessly integrated with the SmartSense team, improving communication and collaboration.
