Home Credit Staff is a corporate service built to ease the inside audit and solve the mid-level managers organization problems. We have designed an application allowing to reduce the time consumption for worktime planning, accounting and KPI gathering for high-level managers.
Technology has become a part and parcel of social life nowadays. Especially mobile applications take huge place in our life because they make things around us more comfortable, the work more effective and communication more accessible. However, in large companies, the process of implementing the latest technologies is associated with an enormous time-consuming. Change of infrastructure, technological process and this large-scale organisation is extremely difficult, and sometimes impossible, so even the partial use of the latest technologies can be considered as a significant achievement in the field of innovation.
After reviewing the organizational structure of the bank's departments, we have identified a number of employees whose work can be optimized with the help of a mobile application. This allowed us to take into account their duties, needs and requirements already at the stage of designing the interface.
Exclusively for Home Credit Bank we have developed a mobile application that allows to reduce the time spent on repetitive tasks, thus workflow efficiency increases in many times. Home Credit Staff mobile app includes:
Employee’s task tracker with check-lists to describe the sub-tasks;
Employee’s calendar plan with their assigned tasks;
Staff handbook with detailed statistics on the key performance indicators;
Tool for automated statistics gathering and drawing up reports on the results of the work;
Map with outlets with the possibility of creating the routes;
Instructions about application functionality (FAQ).
When designing the interface, we have studied the specifics of the bank's internal processes: institutions audit, setting objectives, monitoring their implementation, strategic planning, evaluation of the workflow effectiveness. We have created the interface in the most (approximate/close) to the real needs of the bank's employees way.
After the approval of the user scenarios, we started prototyping the interface. Based on the data obtained, we have placed the items on the screens, defined their size and developed a visual representation. Besides, at this stage we have described the transitions animation and other interactions.
Finishing the UX interaction developing, we moved to working on visual conception that would reflect the image, style and character of the app. Needless to say we focused on expectations and requirements of the target audience. We tried to compose the application the way that would find positive response from users with every launch.
Colors were chosen to indicate and highlight the most important elements of the interface, clearly display the conditions and possible ways of interaction, at the same time keeping the corporate Home Credit style.
