On our side, the software development team englobed 3 developers, a designer, a QA engineer, and a project manager. The company developed an analytical device (a spectrometer) comprised of a laser and multiple analog devices to digital optical converters for identifying chemical elements in material samples. Complementary to the actual hardware (the device) built by the company, Accesa developed a universal application for desktop and tablet, that displayed, stored and analyzed the recorded data based on a user defined analysis method.
The company needed an application capable to provide ultra-precise information and high-quality data interpretation. The end-user of the tool and application had to be able to replicate their work with the same precision every single time. With a solid experience in working with scientific and analytical instruments, we knew that accuracy was a key differentiator for this product.
As part of the approach, we started by creating the design of the application. We designed the UI and UX of the app according to the target users’ needs: people working in factories, at very high temperatures. Whether operating the app from a tablet or a standing PC, this software had to be precise, intuitive, and easy to use.
An important milestone for this project was enabling the possibility of creating customized analysis methods, tailored to the materials the users work with. To this end, we build an editor within the app, capable to reused analysis methods whenever the users needed hem. This feature enabled a more efficient use of resources, that speeded up the general analysis process. The analysis methods obtained from the interactions with the users can be marketed as advanced licensing methods that can be then sold to the company’s clients.
