A comprehensive development of the company identity. Customer-centric service design and planning. All services were redesigned in order to increase customer potential and to further develop cooperation with current customers. Company visuals and offering categories were redone to better correspond to the values defined by ATR Soft employees.
ATR Soft Oy needed to productise their own professional expertise in IoT. At the specification stage, we ended up productising an IoT workshop that ATR Soft could use to provide additional information on this hot topic and to help the customer to make a decision on purchasing a package enabling it to develop an IoT solution to support its own business.
Previous customer surveys had shown that customers lack knowledge and understanding of IoT. In the light of this information, we were able to develop a service that directly met the needs of the customer. At the same time, we developed and concretised ATR’s own processes aimed at supporting IoT development work.

Development of the current company identity and services.
The development of Premode Oy’s Dotag app together with end users. Dotag is a mobile app that makes it easy to produce and organise workload reports and notes.
“The benefits of visualisation were evident throughout the period of service development in the achievement of a common understanding. Without such visualisations, we would not have been able to develop the service in a customer- and user-centred way, as it was precisely these usability scenarios that helped us to understand the greatest challenges to creating the service, ensuring that it did not make the current situation more complex. By concretising the situations, we were able to see the stages experienced by the user, and to respond to them by improving service sessions.”

The survey was organised as an event/workshop for open discussion amongst operators in the immigrant services sector.
