Food Safety Workplace Tablet App

Food Safety Workplace Tablet App

Working closely with our partner Brash Solutions we successfully delivered a Food Safety Workplace Tablet App. The clients a Food Safety consultancy to caterers, canteens, hotels and restaurants what to move a manually intensive system to a portrait tablet app and they preferred a full sized iPad. They had built wire frames of how they saw the customer voyage working and we engaged with them to critique the process, to suggest UI/UX and creative approaches. The client wanted a low cost MVP that could be ported to other systems.

The App enables the management of safety checklists for each area of a restaurant’s kitchen. Mirroring the original paper-based process, the App enables users to track their checking transactions using tablets to record date, time and signature (monogram or name).

A phased development delivery was agreed with the customer as the best approach for this project with the first phase of development providing a release of the application on the iOS platform to support iPads and subsequent phases to deliver the application availability for iPhones and the Android platform as well. The solution has a fully progressive design and easy to use as a touch screen tablet and it had a lightweight backend using Google Firebase.

With this objective in mind, the P92 solution developed provides a custom user interface that does not depend on mobile platform components and was created with React Native to enable the sharing of code on iOS and Android, while still providing a native experience for the end-users.

And thanks to the great ecosystem of React Native, we were easily able to build an application which was accepted by the Apple Appstore as well.

React Native enables the building of native Android and iOS applications using the popular JavaScript frontend framework, React. Complex UI components can be built easily with this framework, is rendered as native UI elements on both platforms and so results in a solution that will be very close to a native application.
