The process began as a high level analysis of their existing app and an audit of all of it’s functionality. This audit produced a functional outline that hadn’t existed as the previous UI was created organically as the product was being developed. Using the outline as a guide wireframes were then developed and once approved given a refreshed design polish. Google’s Material Design language was used as it lent itself naturally to the functional needs of the app.
The Biologistex containers are tracked with an app designed primarily for tablets and desktop computers and provides location and various sensor data, along with the ability to create and manage shipments. Because the contents are bio materials the app needs to show what the internal and external environment is at fairly regular intervals and send alerts when the sensors detect that conditions have gone out of range. These created certain challenges on how to intuitively present the combination of shipments and individual device data. The resulting high level comps of the suggested redesign is shown in the slides above.
