The heart of payments

Providing merchants with a beautiful mPOS solution/

Creditcall are a Bristol based payment solutions company providing global payment solutions for a number of big name clients including Toyota, Virgin trains, NCP, Pay By Phone, Hilton and Selfridges & Co.

Background

Creditcall provide an SDK for third parties to integrate their payment services into their apps and required an exemplary app to demonstrate what can be achieved with their platform.

The CardEase Mobile platform supports:

  • Credit card processing
  • Cash/Cheque transaction tracking
  • Printed/SMS receipts
  • Multiple Bluetooth PIN pad support for credit card transactions
  • Security best practices to keep payment details secure

We are incredibly happy with the app and you've integrated with our API in record time, with minimal assistance.

Nigel Jewell | Payment Solutions Manager | Creditcall Ltd.

Making it happen

Creditcall had previously built their CardEase apps in-house, so had a clear idea of what they required but lacked the creative flair to create a truly beautiful looking app with great UX. This is where we came in. We built them a brand new iPad app from the ground up, with a brand new look and feel that complemented their own branding, whilst allowing for re-skinning for their white label service.

The previous, in-house, apps were also found to be difficult to setup for users as they had to enter a number of details in a settings screen for the app to work, without much feedback when details had been entered incorrectly. Part of the brief was to develop a simple and intuitive step-by-step tutorial to guide the user through each piece of information they needed to enter with clear and helpful feedback if anything was entered incorrectly.

Outcome

We developed the app to a tight schedule, enabling CreditCall to demonstrate it at the 2013 App World Conference at Earl's Court where it took centre stage.

Creditcall had experience of third parties using their CardEase Mobile SDK before and found that we were faster, and required less help, integrating it than any they'd seen before.

After the proven success of the iPad app being used to demonstrate their platform at shows and expos they came back and asked us to take the iPad version onto iPhone and also rebuild their Android app for both phones and tablets.

Case study

The learning portal for clinical commissioners.

Keeping NHS procurement managers in line with legislation/

Capture is an iPad app we developed with the NHS South West Commissioning Support Unit and Bevan Brittan, a Bristol based law firm, to help NHS procurement managers to procure services in line with the latest legislation. It provides a rigorous step-by-step process to managing clinical procurement with support and expert guidance.

Background

We worked with the NHS and Bevan Brittan to create a procurement support tool for tablets. Capture allows procurement managers the ability to:

  • Access procurement resources
  • Generate a procurement report
  • Clearly show progress through what is a long process
  • Contact experts about specific parts of the process

This accessible learning resource consolidates all expertise in the system, better informing the commissioners of care, helping them make best use of taxpayers' money and enabling better decisions that will withstand scrutiny and challenge.

Kevin Hudson | Business Solutions & Innovation Advisor | South West Commissioning Support

Making it happen

MyOxygen ran an initial workshop with all the stakeholders of the project, bringing together both Bevan Brittan and the NHS to work through the best approach to creating a simple and easy to use app that would support procurement managers.

The app was designed in a way that would use a linear timeline, removing the need for managers to become accustomed to a complex layered interface. Users can quickly move between stages and comfortably go back to complete unfinished sections. Completion and part finished stages are always on view with the ability to contact an expert at any point through the process.

Once the process has been completed a full report can be exported to form part of the ongoing decision process.

Outcome

Capture has gone through an initial pilot scheme and is beginning to roll out to a number of NHS trusts across the country.

Capture will ensure procurement managers have a robust audit trail and on-hand legal support to ensure the NHS is adhering to the legislation changes of 2015.

RBTE 2014 Expo App

An essential tool for RBTE visitors/

Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail wanted to provide the visitors to the Expo with an easy-to-use series of apps.

Background

The Retail Business Technology Expo is one of the largest retail technology events in Europe. The annual event brings together delegates from the hospitality and leisure industries alongside retailers who are interested in the newest technologies and how they can benefit their business.

Taking place at London's massive Earl's Court, the organisers of the show, Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail, commissioned MyOxygen to build them a series of IOS, Android and Windows Mobile apps to help the 9,000 delegates and 1,000 exhibitors get the most out of their time at the Expo.

  • Comprehensive listings and information to help delegates get the most out of their time at the expo.
  • Interactive and engaging maps of the event.
  • Information and content from all exhibitors.
  • Technologies including iBeacon and push notifications to engage users.
  • Distributed free prior to and during the event across all popular mobile platforms.
  • Positioned Legend Exhibitions & Essential Retail at the forefront of retail technology.

Our expectations were exceeded when MyOxygen delivered the RBTE 2014 exhibition app. Our show is the biggest retail event in Europe and the app reflects the high profile nature of our exhibitors.

Luke Farmer | Marketing Coordinator |Legend Exhibitions

Making it happen

MyOxygen met with representatives from Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail to understand the audience for the show and the requirements they had for the app.

Working closely with the client, our development team created a multi-platform solution that delegates could download prior to the event in their chosen platform. Users were able to not only browse the interactive event catalogue but could 'favourite' specific exhibitors or seminars. The app powered engagement, with full contact details of exhibitors available before, during and after the event.

The system was powered by a back-end content management system that enabled changes and amendments to the programme without users having to download the app again.

The system included many exciting features, including accessing the iBeacon feature in the iphone version which could be used to trigger trigger welcoming messages to users when they enter the expo or come near to certain stands. In addition, push notifications were enabled on all platforms, enabling the organisers to communicate directly with delegates.

Outcome

MyOxygen delivered the app across all platforms within a tight 12-week deadline and within budget.

The app itself proved an incredible success, with a substantial number of downloads. User feedback throughout the event was positive and the client, Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail, full of praise for our work.

Case study

The University of the West of England looks after its students

Using mobile to help students tackle stress and anxiety/

On the face of it, the life of a student doesn't seem stressful, but the continued pressure of exams and the desire to succeed, coupled with the additional financial strain, can make being a student difficult.

The University of the West of England (UWE) is home to over 25,000 students, some of whom need a helping hand in measuring their stress level, and taking action if things get too much.

Background

A combined team from the Department of Psychology and the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies approached us to develop the Student Anxiety Management (SAM) app which would:

  • Help users personally monitor and track their levels of stress and anxiety.
  • Provide guidance and support for users whose stress levels are increasing, presenting appropriate stress management options where appropriate.
  • Built around a design interface that is engaging, easy to use and social.
  • Work across the iOS and Android platforms.

As a resident psychologist at the university the SAM app was crucial to the wellbeing of the UWE students. The app has been beneficial in supporting students who were suffering from anxiety or stress.

Phil Topham | Chartered Psychologist | University of the West of England

Making it happen

The team at UWE, lead by psychologist Phil Topham, worked in partnership to create the SAM app, which is believed to be one of the first apps of its kind developed by a university for use by students.

We delivered Android and iOS based variants of the SAM application, including access to a newly created "Social Cloud" platform where users can interact and communicate, to increase mobile engagement.

SAM is a psycho-educational tool that runs on smartphones and tablets to help users understand and manage their anxiety. It incorporates a range of self-help activities that are available 24/7 on the user's device.

SAM provides self-help tools for monitoring the user's anxious reactions in different situations and a range of self-help options to help in learning to manage their anxiety. These include relaxation exercises, meditation, calming images and interactive games. Users may also share peer support, anonymously if desired, through a closed social network of other users.

SAM is based on an academic knowledge of how the mind generates anxiety and draws on established methods of psychological self-help for reducing anxiety. Our development team, and the experts at UWE, implemented best practice in human-computer interaction design and usability evaluation studies have ensured that the app is intuitive and easy to use.

Outcome

The project has been extremely successful and topped 250,000 downloads in the first three months of being launched, with around 50,000 regular users a month years later.

The Social Cloud platform has seen high numbers of postings daily from users seeking supportive words from fellow stressed out students.

Case study

South Western Ambulance Service

Taking SWAST mobile/

The South Western Ambulance Service Trust (SWAST) approached us to help them streamline and optimise their incident response teams.

Background

When an ambulance crew turn up at a scene they often don't know what to expect, and as a rule 'expect the unexpected'. SWAST have policies and processes that cover almost every eventuality, but having access to these in a crisis or time of emergency can be difficult.

During and after an incident the need to record information is key in managing, measuring and monitoring the situation for the benefit of the patiens and the ambulance crew themselves.

SWAST contacted us after seeing some of the high-quality apps we had created for other NHS organisations. Their exacting requirements for the app included:

  • A single point of access to all procedural documents.
  • Record all details of an incident in a systematic and secure way.
  • Power communications between the team 'on the ground' and those in the ambulance control centre.

MyOxygen are our preferred technology supplier with invaluable expertise in mobile.

Oliver Tovey | Resilience Officer | South Western Ambulance Service

Making it happen

We worked in partnership with SWAST to develop an iPad application that would work in a pressured and demanding environment.

We created an app that can be used by busy ambulance crews to access key documents on the move. Working from a central database, crews can call up any and every procedure ensuring that they have the information they need at a crucial moment.

As well as providing support for busy crews, the digital platform enables control centre staff to monitor the number and location of on-duty staff.

Outcome

The project was rolled out over a 12 month period, with user testing in the field providing essential feedback which has helped to genuinely improve and refine the app.

The app has proved to be an invaluable tool and has now become a core part of the SWAST service. MyOxygen have also been approached by other services interested in developing their own, including local fire services.

Automotive

NHS England and Halliday James using mobile to support sufferers of bipolar disorder

Early warning for bipolar sufferers/

Automotive uses deep analysis of data from users and sensors to predict the onset of depression or mania symptoms, in an effort to warn the users early enough for them to avoid an episode.

Background

Halliday James approached us to build the app side of a project they were working on with a number of UK Universities and psychology experts to help sufferers of bipolar disorder to begin self managing their condition.

The basis for the project was to collect a number of data streams from users and run analysis over time in order to learn patterns and predict when a depressive or manic episode is going to appear.

The features necessary for the app were as follows:

  • The ability for the user to enter daily mood diaries to show how they're feeling
  • The ability for the user to state that they've experienced a known early warning sign
  • Location tracking, using the phone's GPS, at regular intervals
  • The ability for the user to setup medication reminders and state when they've missed medication
  • The ability for the user to view feedback graphs in order to draw their own findings from their data
  • The ability for the user to receive alerts when the system detects an incoming episode

For our Small Business Research Initiative contract for NHS England we had to produce an app, something we had never done before. We approached MyOxygen as we knew they had produced similar, very successful apps in the past and had a wide experience of medical applications. Working with them has been great, they became part of the team, took our concepts and turned them into a practical app on time and on budget.

Bernard Wignall | Director | Halliday James

Making it happen

We met with the key team behind the project, along with a number of bipolar sufferers, to talk through how the app should work in detail and what they wanted to see from it, based on their experiences of the disorder.

We worked alongside two third parties who were responsible for the server-side analysis system in order to ensure the app was collecting the correct data, at the correct intervals and then delivering it to the server when an internet connection was available.

The app was built in a modular fashion, with each user's account being able to disable certain functionality, if it wasn't considered helpful for that user's personal circumstances or they weren't comfortable with sharing certain information.

Outcome

At the end of the project the app ended up being an invaluable tool for bipolar sufferers, letting them take control of their condition. Sufferers of bipolar disorder often can't tell when their behaviour is changing so much that a depressive or manic episode is looming so providing that information to them based on factual analysis is a great starting point for them to get back to a more normal mood, before it's too late to avoid possibly being sectioned.

It's planned for this initial version of the app to be put through clinical trials in order to more closely determine its effectiveness and whether any design changes need to be made to improve upon it.

The experts in commercial showering & washroom controls.

Intelligent Care; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled taps & showers/

Rada is the commercial arm of Kohler Mira, a plumbing company that makes the most popular showers in the UK and part of the Kohler Company, founded in 1873.

Background

Rada have provided taps and showers to hospitals, and other public sector services, for many years. Some of these could be installed and maintained using PDA devices and a wired connection. The PDAs could configure temperature ranges, pressure settings etc. but, over time, this solution has fallen behind advances in mobile technology.

Rada approached us to take advantage of technologies in mobile devices, such as:

  • More responsive touch screens
  • Large screen sizes to display more information at once
  • Bluetooth low energy to further save on stronger batteries

Making it happen

We worked alongside the industrial design team at Rada to bring their design intent to life on both iPad and Windows laptops, helping them understand the differences between the two platforms and input mechanisms.

We also worked with Rada's internal and over seas hardware teams throughout the project to ensure the apps, taps and showers all worked in harmony together.

The hardware, designs and software were all being developed in parallel throughout the project so we had to deal with evolving requirements along the way. This was a challenge for everyone involved and different to our usual projects, but was something that we rose to in order to produce the best we could.

Outcome

The apps have been extremely well received and rolled out with the new Intelligent Care product range around the world, translated into nine languages, keeping Rada at the forefront of commerical tap and shower solutions.

This isn't the end of the journey for MyOxygen and Rada, as the app will be supported and expanded upon in the future, along with more apps in the pipeline for more plumbing innovations.

Cornish law firm taking on the big guns

Innovative, award-winning client app/

MyLawyer is believed to be the first of its kind. An app for Stephens Scown clients to view key information about their legal matters in a mobile application.

Background

Stephens Scown believed that no other law firm had taken the plunge and gone mobile but were well prepared to make the jump themselves.

We became involved through a mutual professional relationship with Toucan Design, a design agency located close to Stephens Scown. Toucan Design took care of the visuals of the app, while MyOxygen took care of the app development.

The requirements for the app were refreshingly simple, with Stephens Scown knowing that doing a few things well would make for a great app:

  • Access any active legal matters
  • Access all relevant documents for each legal matter
  • Access a calendar of key dates for each legal matter
  • Access to the contact information and profile of the key lawyers assigned to each legal matter
  • View the current financial status and projections for each legal matter
  • Make a payment against a specific legal matter when due

This is a great achievement for the firm. We may be small, but this shows that our commitment to client service and ability to innovate and improve sets us apart

Robert Camp | Managing Partner | Stephens Scown LLP

Making it happen

We worked with both Toucan Design and Stephens Scown in the early stages to form a specification of the app features along with a wireframe of how the app functions would be navigated.

We continued to work closely with Stephens Scown, discussing the integration of the app into their client management software and website, via a custom API, avoiding any duplication of data that was already available.

Outcome

MyLawyer proved to be incredibly popular with clients of Stephens Scown, making for a much stronger relationship between the two.

Stephens Scown also won an award at the Legal Innovation Awards in 2015 for 'Client Management Innovation', thanks to the app, up against much larger UK firms.

The NHS initiative to engage the people for their care and treatment.

The NHS can only get better if you tell them what needs improvement/

The NHS are required to provide access to a 'Friends and Family Test' so that the public can feedback their thoughts and experiences with any NHS service. The main question in the survey is 'Would you recommend this service to your friends and family?'

Background

We were approached by the NHS to build a number of apps for various different Friends and Family surveys across long term conditions, maternity services and general GP practices in Somerset.

  • Provide access to the survey to the public via fixed iPads in GP practices
  • Provide access to the survey to the public via their own devices
  • Provide a spreadsheet report of the responses when required

Making it happen

The app really needed to be a pleasure for users to use, capitalising on the possibilities of using a touch screen device over a normal web or paper form. Using modern technology to provide a beautiful interface to the Friends & Family survey was hoped to encourage the public to provide feedback

It was necessary for the app to show users how far through the survey they were, so that they weren't constantly wondering when they'd be finished and end up walking away without finishing it.

Outcome

In total we created five apps across iOS and Android, phones and tablets. Around thirty iPads were sent out to GP practices in Somerset to provide one of the apps as a platform to gather responses on location. The other four apps covered maternity and long term condition surveys on iOS and Android via the public app stores.

The NHS has seen great engagement with the apps and are hoping to push them out to other areas of the country and cover more specific services as time goes by.

Native App

Native guides you on the path to better apps/

We build native apps, rather than relying on web technologies to take the 'easier' route. It's a decision we made a long time ago, and still stand by, but is something that some people need help to understand. It's for this reason that we took the time to create Native.

Features

  • Learn about some of the benefits of native apps over hybrid apps
  • Learn a bit about which mobile platform you might want to target
  • Learn about the steps you need to take to prepare for building an app

We choose to build native apps because they look better, work better and users like them better.

Andy Farmer | Managing Director | MyOxygen Ltd.

Background

Native apps are more secure, because they can use the security features built in to the device's operating system. There's a whole range of these features and they include encryption of data and various permissions. The result: you can rely on a native app to keep data safe.

Native apps use the same code that the device itself runs on. That makes them distinctly faster. No jerky scrolling, no annoying delays waiting for a response. You get rapid loading, fast and fluid animations, quick interaction responses. And that's what users like.

A native app has immediate access to all those clever things a device can do. Like the sensor that counts how many steps you've taken or the GPS that tracks location. This means a native app finds it easier to do more interesting and useful things. Apps that use web technologies can often use these functions, but not so easily or seamlessly.

Our approach

We are your eyes and ears, your partner and enabler

1

Brief

We work with you to define what it is you want, what it is you need and how we can create it. A brilliant brief results in a brilliant app, so we spend a lot of time getting it right.

2

Wireframe & prototype

The next stage involves the creation of a wireframe detailing the flow of the user through the app. Our UX experts help create beautiful, functional and logical apps that work.

3

Design & development

Our team create an exciting and engaging look and feel for your app, before building it to exacting technical standards.

4

Testing

During development and after the app is completed there will be stages of testing. We’ll do our best to test the functionality but at the end of the day you also need to test the app to make sure you’re happy with it and that it’s working as intended.

5

App launch

We manage the launch of your app on your behalf, keeping an eye on the technical detail so you don’t have to.

6

Monitor & support

Our partnership can continue after launch. There could be additional features to add, undiscovered bugs to fix and maintenance when new versions of operating systems are released.

Prototype

We recommend allocating 15% of your total budget on developing a prototype.
