Together with Bee Charging Solutions and Odd Hill, we have developed a new app to make charging of electric cars more easily accessible along the roads. Read more about it and watch the video about how we proceeded below!
Bee Charging has clear goals – it should be easy to have an electric car, easy to drive, easy to choose, easy to find the best charging solution and easy to charge along the roads. The last goal; easy to charge along the roads, Bee Charging wanted to improve with the help from an application.
At the start of the project there was already an app, but it needed improvements. Several basic functions were missing, such as starting and stopping charging and being able to pay with the app.
An increasing number of charging players on the market presented strong, competitive offers and it was time to take Bee to the next level.
Developing a new optimized app was on the agenda, and in order to create the best possible conditions we started of by doing a study which generated a specification of requirements. Based on the requirements, functional sketches were adapted to Bee’s colorful and playful graphic profile.
Two custom native apps were built, one in Swift for iOS and one in Kotlin for Android, where the focus was on the user and their experience. Detailed interfaces for optimized usability and high security through the integrated payment service were the most important things in the applications.
Today, the apps have good integration possibilities for future integration with other apps.
After a close collaboration between Consid, Bee Charging and Odd Hill, Bee was launched on App Store and Goggle Play in November 2019. Today, the app has 5000 new users and in 2020 the focus will be on taking the user experience to the next level.
– Consid has a good overall view of the market, business models and the customers’ needs, and they understand and translate that insight into solutions. It is important for us that an app not only becomes an interface but also a tool for us to achieve our goals, Nathalie Kinell, Marketing and Business Development Manager at Bee, says.
We have had a close cooperation between our two business areas Communication and Mobility during this entire project, where Bee has been very involved aswell.
