DEADLINE EXTENDED! Apply now for early-stage funding through the Softeq Venture Studio. Application is now due by Saturday, June 3rd.
AGU Baby AG is our long-term customer from Switzerland that produces baby care products and medical equipment for home use.
The client turned to Softeq to fix several issues affecting the performance and user experience of their IoT suite. The problems included inaccurate GPS positioning, an unstable app-to-device connection, and the lack of on-device data storage (which led to data loss).
During the first phase of the project, we addressed the issues affecting app-to-device connectivity and helped the client adjust the device’s firmware requirements to avoid similar problems in the future. We also fine-tuned data exchange and storage, improved geolocation accuracy, and revamped the mobile app interface and user flow.
Initially, the AGU app was designed to only support single-user access. We re-wrote the source code to enable multi-user Family Account access for the iOS and Android apps.Now users can securely share baby data (growth records, feeding charts, and movement data including GPS coordinates) with family members, doctors, nurses, and any other interested party.
To prevent data loss, we implemented a new system of user authentication.
To avoid account duplication and prevent data loss, a unified user account was introduced:

Softeq also helped the client connect new devices to the IoT suite:
Because of their excellent teamwork, we've achieved our goals. After the first six months of development, they had fixed the most important issues, doubled our audience, and increased the number of installations on both app stores … We feel secure having such a competent resource on our team.Watch video review
By giving the AGU app a complete overhaul and adding new devices to the IoT suite, we helped the customer triple the number of app users. AGU and Softeq continue working on improvements and new connected baby care products, including next-generation infrared thermometers and a smart bedside lamp.
