Eezy Kauppa is a family of two apps that helps grocery stores all over Finland recruit temporary staff when the need arises – and the workers to find available shifts that suits their schedule.
We have been involved with the project in all its phases, from service design to development.
Our co-operation with Ekstraajat began in 2016. Based on the client's meticulous understanding of the field, we identified the most crucial features for the app and left the others on the cutting room table. Focusing on essentials has remained our design philosophy throughout the lifecycle of the service.
Design work has taken place in close co-operation with the client. Following MVP philosophy, the first versons of the apps were designed to include only the most critical features. With every new release, we have included new functionalities and updates based on testing and feedback.
The shopkeeper app has been created with Xamarin, and the more recently completed employee app with React Native. Both enable straightforward maintenance and agile update process on the two mobile platforms.
In a service like Eezy, it is essential for the development ideas to be based on actual user needs. By continuously utilising user comments, we have been been able to make the service better with each iteration.
Eezy Kauppa consists of two applications: one is designed the shopkeepers and the other for employees.
Using their app, the shopkeepers can announce free shifts. They are in turn immediately visible for the employees in that area. Both announcing and accepting the shifts can be done in just a few taps.
For the employees, the system offers a very flexible way of working. The shopkeepers, on the other hand, benefit from being able to quickly recruit temporary staff in tricky situations – even within an hour or two.
