Prior to the public launch of the Android mobile platform, Magenic was tasked with building a pre-designed custom Android application. The mobile application was meant to keep our client, an industry-leading payment solution organization, ahead of its many competitors by providing a unique mobile experience for the market’s newest platform as quickly as possible following its release.
The client already had several legacy systems in place, including SMS-based alerts to users. All server logic would need to be integrated with the client’s existing systems. In addition to that, an aggressive timeline was in place due to the proximity of the Android platform’s release date.
Adapting to the newest mobile technology.
The project had three major components: an alert system to notify users when a purchase had been made using their account (an anti-fraud measurement), a category-based coupon system that would send discount notifications from various partners, and a location-based ATM finder that would allow users to find the nearest ATM (branded or generic).
Leveraging the .NET framework, Magenic’s development team built out APIs across multiple devices and provided the client with the application they desired too meet their implementation goal. Additionally, multiple APIs made the application easily extendible to other leading mobile platforms such as the iPhone and BlackBerry. This provided the client the ability to continue its growth within the mobile marketplace.
Develop APIs across multiple devices.
Magenic built a mobile solution that integrated with the client’s existing services. By building out the APIs across multiple devices, the solution allowed continued growth in the mobile marketplace. Magenic’s APIs were leveraged to create applications for both the iPhone and the BlackBerry platforms.
Our solution included the client’s three critical components (purchase alerts, coupon alerts, and an ATM locator), and met their timeline goals, as the project finished just two months after Android’s public launch. Our solution helped the client stay ahead of competition by providing a cutting edge mobile user experience that could easily be expanded to other mobile platforms.
Met aggressive timeline, set up future success.
