Mobile App

NIK is a leading provider of innovative agricultural technologies aimed at helping farmers boost efficiency and achieve better yields. Keen to offer their clients a convenient way of tracking and monitoring an entire fleet of tractors, combines, or other similar machinery from any location, the company commissioned us to design and develop a cross-platform mobile application that would allow users to keep track of their field machinery using GIS data. Our brief was to create an Android and iOS compatible app that would provide real-time and historical information on the positions of multiple machines or vehicles, with the added functionality of generating online vehicle reports and statistics on demand. The aim was to deliver a solution that complements NIK’s integrated tracking system.

The Solution

Based on our client’s requirements, we used Cordova (PhoneGap) to build a cross-platform mobile application that retrieves GIS information from an external database and displays it in the form of an interactive geographic map, enabling a user to see their fleet’s live GPS positions and status at a glance. To ensure easy navigation of the content on a variety of devices, we implemented a clean, responsive, and intuitive user interface using jQuery Mobile and Backbone.js framework.

The Result

The mobile app is currently used by a large proportion of NIK’s clients, and has helped farmers all over Bulgaria monitor and improve their field operations. Providing new possibilities in fleet management, it has proven to be a well-received addition to NIK’s current range of products.
