Even harder when they already had 30+ mediocre apps on the app store (https://apps.apple.com/us/developer/danfoss-a-s/id423984644), but we rose to the challenge and crushed all expectations company-wide. We developed an application that solved problems, and translated internationally from China to Denmark.

I met with several engineers at the company (primary user) multiple times to get a sense of the problems they faced, and how to each solved problems out in the field.

We proposed a 2 step solution that served as the basis for the entire application once the contract was ours. ๐Ÿ’ช

I believe in creating thorough documentation to accompany design and prototypes to maintain the original product vision throughout the development process.
