Service Vehicle Check

Microapp Tailor-made PWA

10. 10. 2019

Customized progressive applications in just two weeks. The owner takes the car in for service and notices the damage when he picks it up. Was it there when he arrived, or did the garage do it? Czech car service Motortec prevents similar situations by using an app we developed for them in two weeks.

Motortec car dealership sells new and used cars, runs a service and has been our client since 2014. We managed their original website, developed a new one and in October 2018 they approached us with an app enquiry.

We started working with Motortec when we were still web developers under the name SnadnýWeb. In 2018, however, we expanded our range of services, rebranded and extended our cooperation to app development.

Car dealership CEO Marek Ventruba recurring problem with unclear origin of damage. It is quite natural that the customer focuses only on the problem he has come with before the service, and doesn't examine their car thoroughly. However, on handover, he or she carefully walks around the freshly washed car and may notice a scratch or other blemish that he hasn't seen before.

While there are security cameras in the service area, they may not capture everything. That's why managing director Marek Ventruba came up with a solution using a mobile app, where the mechanic would take pictures of the car from all sides when taking it over. If necessary, he could then easily find the photos and compare them with the actual condition.


Mobile vs. progressive web app

Mobile photography clearly makes sense in a car service environment, for a closer examination of the photos but a computer with a large monitor is more convenient. That's why we designed a progressive web app for the client instead of a mobile one.

Uploading car photos: It's really easy and one-click.

The big advantage is also a multiply lower price while the application can be run not only from the desktop, but also from Android as well as from iOS. The decision was made.

For the development of this small application we chose the Vue.js technology. This JavaScript framework allowed us to develop very quickly, and present a prototype to Motortec two weeks later.


What was next?

We quickly programmed and launched the application for the car service. The app is now in pilot operation and we are gathering feedback directly from the technicians who use it so that we can improve it agilely.
