The Plant has a team of dedicated mobile developers for iOS and Android native application development as well as mobile web specialists with many years of experience in the field.
Many factors play into the decision whether a native app or a web based app is the better solution, there is no silver bullet. We keep ourselves flexible in the choice of technologies to solve your problems and incorporate the best of native and hybrid apps to achieve ideal project outcomes.
Native Mobile App Development
We have developed native apps for iOS and Android for many purposes, here’s a short list of some of them.
Pace Your Race iPad Kiosk
Pace Your Race is a service offered from ASICS to print out personalized pacebands for runners. We have developed the whole system from web frontend for early registration, to the booth server and iPad Kiosk apps used at the ASICS booth at the races.
The iPad kiosk is a native iOS app that allows users to sign up for the service at the booth. The client can scan QR code, used by pre-registered participants for quick login. It’s also used for printing out the pacebands. Data collected through the kiosk apps can be synched with the web server after the event.Learn More…
My ASICS China
The global MY ASICS running app relies on services not available within China (Google Maps, Facebook, Twitter), so we set out to create a truly native MY ASICS client for iOS and Android that properly integrates with China only services such as Wechat and Weibo. Learn More About MY ASICS…
The Plant developed Qortex as a social productivity platform to get out of “email hell” and keep all discussions, to-dos, meeting requests and communication in one central place. Adding to the browser based HTML5 versions for PC and mobile, we have also developed full-fledged clients for iOS and Android so teams can communicate on the go. Learn More…
Mobile Web App Development
Lacoste Japan Online Store
The Lacoste Japan online store backend is entirely developed in QOR. The frontend is using responsive templates for PC and tablets, and unique templates for smartphones. The market share for smartphones is massive in Japan, so it was important to offer this experience not just as an “also ran”, but with a specifically optimized UI for smartphone users. Learn More…
Lacoste In-Store iPads
Together with Lacoste Japan, we developed some very unique features and integrations for their Japanese customers, such as the delivery of orders from the online shop to a specific physical store. The store staff can also order products from the online shop, and have them delivered to the store or the customer’s home, when the needed items are not currently stocked in the store.
For the placing and handling of these orders, The Plant developed an iPad optimized web frontend for store staff with unique functionality such as checking in orders from the web and attributing web sales to specific store staff, so they get credit for the sale.
Based on QOR, the Aussie Parking website has some unique admin features. Although mainly used through a PC, the operators can use the admin backend via their smartphones, which makes it very easy to place confirmation calls to customers directly from the admin backend via the phone itself.
