Business needs & goals
One of the main and most crucial goals was to revolutionize the French market with a new way of delivering parcels, building trust of the community and getting it accustomed to new technologies.
Mondial wanted to become an unquestionable leader in parcel delivery, and the designed application’s goal was to open up a number of new possibilities.
In order to deliver the mobile application to customers as soon as possible, we needed to create an MVP scope with basic functionalities.
Releasing the app quicker but with limited features allowed us not only to give the customers familiarity with the new solution, but also quickly gather feedback from user flows. It enabled reducing the usage of emails and Mondial website in order to collect delivered parcels.
MVP scope functionalities included:
checking available APM/PUDO in the nearest area
managing the account
viewing shipment details
tracking a parcel
In the months following the delivery of the MVP, the app was updated with new elements, such as:
archiving and deleting a parcel
receiving push notifications (following a parcel)
using a dark mode
adding a parcel manually
logging in with phone number (in progress)
Challenges & solutions
In order to provide a coherence and efficiency of the process we needed to engage a Business Analyst for a thorough analysis. Based on many hours of discussions, we created detailed user stories with acceptance criteria which were very helpful for all the team members.
International & Multi-channel collaboration
Working in an international environment is a challenge for all team members. The project involved three nations and areas. Apart from Mondial Relay, we also worked with InPost UK in terms of UX and Dragon Rouge company in terms of UI.
We carried out manual testing for both iOS and Android platforms abreast.
The project was conducted according to the SCRUM framework, and the functional tests were based on the previously prepared user stories and acceptance criteria.
The result is a simple, intuitive app both for iOS and Android.
In the course of work, we managed to prepare the documentation quickly, as well as discuss and cover many edge cases the Product Owner was not aware of and thus was grateful for pointing them out. Additionally, now users don’t have to check the status of delivery for each of their parcels separately, but can open the app and conveniently see the statuses of all their parcels in one place.
