Bringing homecare into the digital age
Home Care Direct connects high quality carers with familes and loved ones. It provides a digital platform to discover, communicate and hire carers easily.
Michael Harty, Founder at HomeCareDirect
Understanding the problem we are solving allows us to define the solution and the workflows to accomplish it. We worked together with the Home Care Direct team to research and wireframe the user flows.
These wireframes allowed us to understand the different user flows and tasks quickly without the high fidelity designs. We could easily understand the prioritization of elements on the screen and to make each iteraction as seamless as possible.
Once the wireframes and flows were completed, we moved into high fidelity designs. Using Home Care Direct's branding, we created beautiful responsive user interfaces for the product. We then created an interactive prototype of the product to get a great understanding of the usability.
With the designs complete, we moved forward into the development of the iOS, Android and responsive web application for the product. Ruby on Rails was our choice for building a scalable API for the application. We then built the iOS application in native Swift.
We built a platform that allows carer's to easily be discovered by customers and it saves the customer up to 40% by dealing directly with carers! This is amazing! We're extremely proud of what we accomplished and continue to watch the platform grow.
