MYS Mobile GPS Tracker

Mobile GPS Tracking App for better project planning and delivery

«The team at Exoft always delivers on time, on budget and with a high degree of professionalism. They assisted in developing complex business software solutions and sorting some very complex issues.»

Client

Our client is a multi-product IT firm based in London, the UK. They sell corporate software solutions to different businesses operating mainly in the service industry. MYS Mobile GPS Tracker was envisioned as a product for companies having field employees. The idea was to create a user-friendly mobile application that would allow managers to track the GPS location of all team members during their work hours. In addition, the client wanted the app to integrate with its other product, a mid-market ERP system.

Challenge

The client started the development process with another IT outsourcing company. But after it failed to meet the initial requirements, the client approached us. Although a certain amount of code had been written by the previous team, the quality of the work wasn’t great. To complete the tracker app, we not only had to get a full understanding of the client’s ERP system but also fix bugs in existing code.
