Star Computers are global players in accountancy and practice management software, with clients such as Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers and KPMG.
I was commissioned to help migrate the Windows® based accountancy software package to both web and mobile devices.
The brief was to design a native Android app based on the existing Windows software application. With complex functionality at the heart of the software app, we had to make many user interface design decisions so that we could port the core functionality to a mobile device. We had to explore the existing task flows and see how we could implement latest user interface design thinking within the parameters of Android.
Complex functionality and customisation is central to the success of the software so developing a new user interface involved much discussion and a knowledge of the user needs and requirements.
Developing native iOS and Android user interfaces meant targeting the established design patterns of each OS so that users would have an immediate familiarity with the app.
