Green Motion app
Green Motion is a car hire company with a focus on environmental values. They also want to be ahead of the technology curve so they commissioned Gravitywell to design and develop an app for their customers at over 400 locations around the world. The innovation that we brought to the rental market is the new Sign & Go service - customers can process all of the paperwork, including passport and driver's license, on their phones, which eliminates the wait at a counter.
Tight deadlines meant that we had to start design and development quickly. Using Agile processes we were able to maintain progress as new information and feature changes came in.
We built a prototype early on to test key technical components and explore different UX options. The Sign & Go booking and ID process was quite complex so it took several revisions to refine the design into something simple and clear for the user.
We selected the awesome React Native framework for the build of both iOS and Android versions, which meant that we had a shared codebase across the two platforms. Using React Native meant that we can reach a first release much faster and future updates are equally speedy because the majority of the code is written only once.
