External Device UWP App Prototype: More Rewarding User Experience with MS Windows
A global semiconductor company engaged in development of computer processors and related technologies.
The client required a service provider with a profound software engineering background. Impressed with Softeq’s services range, which showcased rich Microsoft technologies expertise, among others, and delivered projects portfolio, it engaged the company to implement a hardware-specific software application for Windows OS.
The team was to create an application that would facilitate small business users with no dedicated IT staff in managing security and performance issues on their PCs driven by the customer’s technology.
The solution enables users to schedule machine start and shut-down at a designated time, check for Windows Update, back up data, execute disk defragmentation, delete temporary Internet files and cookies, as well as restrict access to USB ports on a given PC.
The app also launches several utilities to secure improved machine performance:
The application is localized into 22 languages.
The team employed a conventional Waterfall-based software development process due to well-defined requirements availability.
The team managed to achieve stable performance of the app on the required Windows OS versions (7, 8, 8.1). The solution is pencilled in for soon launch on the customer’s support site.
