Our Services

Domain-Focused Apps

Apps connect the same way web applications do. They can use the same web security to access Services, Databases, and information as a web application. In this manner, your Domain Focused mobile applications extend you web application in new and personalized ways.

Agile By Design

Sphere is an agile development shop, experienced in producing short-iterations of working software for clients. To develop for the changing Mobile landscape, you need a team experienced in short iterations over changing requirements. The agile methodology allows us to do just that.

Functional Prototype

So how does it work? Once a client-facing requirements lead identifies your needs, a talented team tackles your project and provides you with a strong prototype. As our partnership continues we will provide dev and testing, as well as the release to public/private distributors.

Problem

Enova, a leading Chicago fintech company, required assistance developing their CashNetUSA app for Android and iOS. In addition, they needed help developing a set of mobile APIs for this application.

Approach

Sphere provided Enova with a Senior iOS developer, Senior Android developer, and a Project Manager to create the application. Additionally, Sphere provided a RoR developer who helped Enova develop the necessary APIs.

The CashNetUSA app that Sphere developed allows users to apply for a new loan or line of credit, make payments, as well as track the status and history of their loans. Sphere implemented a wealth of features including intuitive navigation, status updates through in-app push notifications, a digital calendar of key dates for loans, a rich FAQs section, a secure message center, and tracking so that Enova can analyze user actions through Adobe Analytics.

As Enova continues to grow, Sphere consultants are providing the company with application support and transferring all the legacy code to the new team members.

Problem

Supermarketers.com is a supplier for grocery stores across the United States. They sell their private label brand, Isabelle’s Kitchen, in chains nationwide. Supermarketers.com also specializes in supplying salad bars — they sell the equipment, ship the fresh produce, train employees on HACCP food safety principles, and send out custom sales reports that help their clients manage profitability.

Supermarketers.com needed assistance improving their mobile Salad Bar Tenders app, available for iOS and Android, which helps clients build their own custom salad bars and place produce orders on-the-go. Specifically, the company needed help implementing intuitive UX features, fixing bugs, and making the app more reliable.

Approach

Sphere provided Supermarketers.com with two team members — an iOS and an Android developer to ensure optimal performance across all mobile devices. The first objective in the engagement was to migrate Supermarketers.com’s source code from Java 7 to Java 8 and RxJava. By completing this migration, Sphere was able to remove about 30% of the code, making it more readable and improving maintenance. We then improved the app’s navigation by implementing a dashboard screen with quick-search functionality. Additionally, Sphere created an Address Book plugin so Salad Bar Tenders’ clients could quickly share reports with contacts from their mobile devices. To move clients through the purchasing process more effectively, we created an expense tracking function and a to-do list with an integrated calendar. Sphere improved Salad Bar Tenders’ functionality significantly, and ultimately increased the number of merchandisers using the app.
