Snap Send Solve on Channel 10 News

Snap Send Solve was featured on the Channel 10 News, Channel 7 News and the Herald Sun recently!

Snap Send Solve is about solving problems. We understand that when people see a problem, such as graffiti, hard rubbish, fallen trees, broken playground equipment, water leaks or potholes on the street, they might not know who is responsible for getting it fixed.

By categorising incident types and assigning them to the appropriate service provider based on the user’s location, Snap Send Solve makes reporting issues a quick and simple thing to do. It also gives users the satisfaction of contributing to getting things fixed in their local communities.

The app is available on both the App Store and Google Play, and is used by over 60,000 people around Australia.

With over 40,000 reports submitted via the app in the past six months, Snap Send Solve helps users report issues to their local councils and service providers in a quick and easy way.

CityLink App wins Gold App Design Award

We are super excited to announce that last week, our work with Transurban on the CityLink iOS app won a Gold App Design Award at the design100 World App Design Awards.

The purpose of the CityLink iOS app is to empower customers to make simple transactions quickly and easily, anywhere and anytime. This includes making payments, managing account details and managing vehicles registered to the account.

To ensure that the app is as user friendly as possible, we conducted multiple rounds of user testing with CityLink customers during every stage of the project. This included testing paper prototypes, wireframes, visual designs and prototypes.

The result is an additional channel for customer interactions, that enables Transurban to provide greater and more convenient customer service.

A number of innovative technologies have been used on this app. The app is written in Swift, the new Apple programming language for the iOS platform. The app also allows users to scan their credit card by taking a photo of the card, automatically pre-filling the required data fields, instead of requiring the user to enter it manually.

The CityLink iOS app allows users to:

  • Set up auto top ups
  • Swipe to make a quick payment
  • Scan credit card to enter details and save for future quick use
  • View and update account details
  • View and add vehicles to account
  • View e-TAGs associated with account
  • Receive notifications and prompts when account balance is low

We are continuing to work with Transurban on the CityLink app product roadmap to add more high value features to enhance the CityLink customer experience through mobile.

We also picked up a stack of Silver awards for:

Thanks to everyone who worked on these projects. They are all great examples of how we work towards our vision of making a difference through creating mobile experiences that are intuitive, effective and engaging.
