The challenge

The existing workflow at Thales revolved around a multitude of complex spreadsheets, each housing multiple tabs. While effective, this process proved cumbersome, error-prone, and challenging for newcomers to grasp. Replicating the functionality of the existing process while simplifying it to create an intuitive user experience was a formidable challenge. The stakes were high, considering the sensitive nature of the data the app would be processing.

Tailored iOS tablet app development

With a comprehensive understanding of Thales’ requirements, our team dove into the development phase with enthusiasm. The iOS tablet app we crafted was tailored to streamline processes, ensure data accuracy, be capable of functioning without an internet connection, and provide a secure environment for sensitive information. Our focus on user-centric design allowed us to maintain efficiency while simplifying complex procedures.

Prioritising data protection

Given the highly sensitive nature of the app’s data, security was paramount. We diligently integrated advanced security protocols, ensuring that Thales’ confidential information remained safeguarded throughout its lifecycle within the app. Our commitment to security extended to every aspect of the development process, from architecture design to user authentication.
