With Kinvey, developers are able to focus on frontend development and deliver the advanced features of the mySchneider app in less time and for less money. Development time was reduced by 50% and the delivery of new features and capabilities can be done every 2-3 weeks instead of 8-12 weeks.
Referring to the ease with which Kinvey allowed Schneider to connect to existing back office systems, Hiram Barber, Global Director of Digital Customer Experience at Schneider, said, “Kinvey provides us with a back office that is off the shelf and ready to use, and that enables us to operate in economies of scale. Given the success of mySchneider, we’re using it as the framework for future app development.”
With a development platform that enables a faster release cadence and more robust functionality, the mySchneider app has taken hold with approximately 200,000 downloads. Customers have been very receptive to the new app, which has a 4.3-star rating on the Google Play store—a big improvement from the previous 3-star rating.
“After using Kinvey, development became seamless,” explained Raj Sadasivan, Chief Digital Customer Experience Architect, Schneider. “Kinvey provides us a platform that not only enables our developers to rapidly push out features to provide a great user experience, but also delivers on the backend, enabling us to get the data needed."
