Abercrombie & Fitch has a set of Android and iOS apps that are running on older versions and needed campaign and functional updates.
Our developers worked to understand updates needed, work with the creative team, and lead the offshore team through execution of the updates across both platforms.
The largest challenge was working with older versions of the apps that wouldn’t compile when we received them and had minimal documentation.
Special K has both an Android and and iOS app that their audience uses to manage their My Special K program for weight loss. The backend for these applications went through a dramatic change to tie into different systems for storing the user’s data. While backend developers focused on updating the services, there were still numerous places that the applications needed updates to accommodate the new services and in some places new data elements/models.
Our team members worked to assist the backend developers to troubleshoot the apps and identify issues with the services transitions. In addition they worked primarily on the iOS platform to update the apps, not only for the new services, but also to iOS 7 updates.
Razorfish formed GroupX a team focused on innovating, bringing 9 Creative and UX team members with one technologist to create demos, assist in pitch work and proof of concepts.
One such project was revamping the expense entry project. This project required exploration into Optical Character Recognition (OCR, for scanning receipts into meaningful information) as well as coming up with a plan for linguistic analysis.
The analysis was used for turning vocal speech input to text and then interpreting freeform entry as expense details.
