Customer

Brandwatch Technologies Inc., a global leader in brand security and product authentication solutions.

Problem

Softeq and the customer have already enjoyed a successful collaboration in the software implementation space. When it came to the next project — an upgrade of an iOS app created for precious metal authentication — the customer engaged Softeq to rework the solution.

With the rollout of an updated version of the iOS platform implemented by Apple, to be able to meet the latest technology requirements, the app called for a groundbreaking overhaul affecting the Xcode version, obsolete API and libraries, as well as UI code, among others.

Solution

The app is used for scanning a QR code printed on the precious metal item package to ensure contents authentication. The gold or silver product has two verification levels — through an encrypted bar code and a unique serial number along with the product image taken at the time of sealing. The number printed on a sealed package of the product must match the encrypted data retrieved from the scan.

The team reworked the app as follows:

  • Upgraded the app to Xcode 6 and iOS SDK 8
  • Replaced the obsolete and deprecated API and libraries
  • Rewrote UI code
  • Added support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+
  • Applied new UI design
  • Added 64 bit support
  • Added App Store publishing support
  • Re-integrated the app with the web-backend

Methodology

Softeq’s team employed the Agile project implementation methodology working in sprints.

Results

The customer is happy with the result and the collaboration process. The partnership continues, with two companies productively cooperating in the custom software app development space.
