We effectively applied our concepts and competencies in our recent customer engagements and own projects to both the B2C and B2B sector as well as in artistic works. The scope of our work ranges from developing serious Business Apps with SAP link-ups, creating innovative touch-based interfaces to releasing fancy Lifestyle Apps.

With the „NLWKN Pegelmelder“ we designed a beautiful App for iPhone and Android that displays the water levels of rivers in North Germany for the NLWKN (Nds. Landesbetrieb für Wasserwirtschaft, Küsten- und Naturschutz), a German public agency.
As the accurate information of the river’s water levels is existential for all users of the App, Pegelmelder is directly connected to the NLWKN cloud with an encrypted and secure Web service interface (HTTPS/JSON).
Besides providing significant data via the clear graphical user interface, Pegelmelder informs the user by push notifications of upcoming high waters or even floods.
Siemens Expected Loss Calculator
Together with Siemens Financial Services, an international B2B financial services provider, we designed the “Expected Loss Calculator” App for the iPad.
The ELC is a mobile SAP-connected calculation and visualization tool for interest rates, margins and expected losses of a business case, also allowing the user to create payment tables, comparison calculations and export the results via E-Mail and PDF.
In order to break free from the ubiquitous spreadsheet paradigm of financial applications we invented an easy to use dynamic interactable bar chart that completely replaces the need for Excel as a data input method.
Siemens CRM Customer Cockpit
With the “CRM Customer Cockpit” iPad App the Siemens IT Solutions and Services GmbH was looking for a fresh way to visualize all relevant aspects of Customer Relationship Management processes.
We solved the problem elegantly by inventing an innovative time bar, that displays all requests, orders, complaints and contacts of the client and its customer in an easy to grasp iconized overview. The intuitive design of the graphical user interface invites the customer and the sales representative to collectively review and evaluate the past relations and plan future collaborations more efficiently.
The App is architectured to connect to an SAP CRM Backend via standard Web Services thus always ensuring the timeliness of the data.
GCP Service e-Learning
GCP-Service, an international Clinical Research Organisation for the pharmaceutical industry, wanted to provide their customers with a convenient access to various training materials for their GCP-Online Training Courses.
We implemented a simple but elegant iPhone App that enables the user to view the courses’ videos, study the course documentation and to take the necessary tests on the go. The App integrates seamlessly with the ILIAS e-Learning Management platform thus unifying the user experience between the online and the mobile version of the Training Courses.
Innovation Workshop with Schindler Parent Identity
Schindler Parent Identity, a Berlin based agency for strategic brand management and value-driven communication, invited us to consult them in developing concepts for several iPhone and iPad Apps. One of their clients, Berliner Seilfabrik, a globally active designer and manufacturer for playground landscapes, was looking for an innovative way to present their products in the B2B environment.
We devised a clever alternative to the traditional method of presenting products in a conventional catalogue and additionally layed the groundwork for a fancy playground layout planning tool.
App Concepts with Schindler Parent Identity for MAGAZIN
In another collaboration with Schindler Parent we conceptionalized a series of aesthetic and minimalistic lifestyle Apps for MAGAZIN, the number one German manufacturer, distributor and retailer for high-end designer furniture.
“Fußballgott” was our first official App Store release and a simple Soundboard App, that lets you invoke funny comments on various situations of a soccer game. We hired the awesome actor Helge Tramsen to impersonalize the “God of Soccer” and worked together with Klaas Wurtmann from Tun und Machen.
While the App certainly didn’t make us rich it reached the Top 10 in the iPhone and iPad App Store in the Sports Section.
Instead of writing a lengthy and boring text we will let the customer talk about this one:
“This German guy is completely mad of course, It’s very limited and we need an update *now* as I might get bored listening to the same phrases but it just sends people into fits of laughter. Won’t appeal to all but I love it. Excellent way to waste time. A ‘vin-vin vilozofee’ indeed!”
Learning like a Sir
“Learning like a Sir” is your lofty companion everytime you need to prepare for a test. There is no need for tediously handwritten reference cards anymore! Just copy your text into the app, choose your Mode, and with a touch of your finger on the display or the camera the text will inconspicuously fade in or out.
