In an elevator?
Then here’s the elevator pitch: In merely 10 days our product team managed to build a web app that allowed the Velove riders to request shifts and fill in their time reports, thus moving Velove’s daily business from Google sheets to their own brand new Rider’s app.
What came to be after that is a much bigger thing…
Velove was formerly using Google Sheets and Google Forms to schedule riders to shifts in Stockholm and the riders would also do their time reports in Google Sheets. Basically all their important data of riders, their productivity, salaries and so on was stored in Google Sheets.
Due to summer holidays approaching there was a strict deadline and the Humblebee product team only had 10 days to build a web app for Velove’s riders that would include the functionality of requesting shifts and time reporting. During this time the team also started on a design system that would be used for all of Velove’s digital tools.
As the team had a very short time to develop the Riders App the process was quite different and many steps on exploring issues and needs were excluded. The goal was to move the scheduling and time reporting from the Google Sheets Velove currently were using to a progressive web app. The logic and the features were going to be the same with no real work on improving the existing structure and flow of scheduling and time reporting.
We created a design system so that we have one single source of truth for all designs that we work with across all Velove's products & services.
