MB Guides Android and iOS applications development
- Android and iOS applications
- Server-side solution feeding merged data
- Secure application delivery through Akamai
Inloop and Daimler AG started a fruitful cooperation on digital products development in 2014 by creating a working prototype for an improved version of their existing MB Guides applications. We continued to work on a full-scale project for the apps within the same year.
These applications serve as an interactive owner’s manual for the entire Mercedes-Benz vehicle lineup. The goal is to enable the Mercedes-Benz owners and fans to have all the relevant information regarding their vehicles easily available on their smartphones and tablets.
Leveraging its mobile expertise, Inloop took part in the design, implementation, testing and deployment process for Android and iOS applications including the design and implementation of a server-side solution which feeds all applications with appropriate data.
The most challenging aspects of this project included its truly global reach, spanning all the brand’s markets. Also the need for a strict compliance to customer’s procedures and processes. The revamped applications received significantly higher reviewer ratings and as a result we have strengthened our working partnership with Daimler AG on subsequent projects. (e.g. similar application for the Smart brand).
