True Student

True Student wanted an app solution which their tenants could use to get the most of their student experience. There was an existing website and they required us to work together with the agency who built it to port key information through to a new app we would be developing. This would need to hook into the existing website’s API.

The Problem

The Problem

True wanted a tech solution which their tenants could use to get the most of their student experience. There was an existing website and they required us to work together with the agency who built it to port key information through to a new app we would be developing. This would need to hook into the existing website’s API.

The solution would need to keep the users informed and up to date on these key items and alerts regarding their particular apartment. The new app should also allow facility booking and then push personalised offers and reminders to the students. True also plan to be able to unlock doors remotely with the app and smart lock at some point in the future.

The Solution

The Solution

We designed and built two native mobile apps, one for iOS and one to work on Android. The apps offered user profile creation and social media logins. It also allowed True to push offers and promotions directly to the students

The individual push notifications we built into the app functionality now allow for fine grained targeting, and we’ve provided the ability to view diary listings, events and facilities. The app then features booking capability. so that students can make use of the True benefits and socialising perks directly through the app and make their own arrangements. We built to allow for the integration of a remote door unlocking functionality later.
