In collaboration with the Audi Academy, we designed and developed an iPad application that elegantly packaged all of their training content to serve as the focal point of their new approach to training. Our first step was to collaborate with their team leads to plan out a detailed Phase 1 requirements list, as well was some ideas of what might come in future phases.
Once everyone was on board with these priorities, we set to work designing the UI. We went through multiple iterations of designs, experimenting with different forms of in-app navigation and ways of representing the brand. The final result offered users several different options for browsing content: a Resource Library with filters and content descriptions, and a Model Library, which was specifically focused on vehicle-related content. The Model Library was designed to provide a more visual experience, in the event that the app was used with a customer.
Core backend services were being built while the UI was being designed. Once the mockups were approved, we built out the frontend, and then started connecting all of the pieces together. Additionally, the app was integrated with Audi’s existing Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, giving the organization full, automated control over authentication and user management.
