Dealer Tools to Improve Customer Service

Front End Design Implementation

Our design team took the User Flow maps and converted them into high-fidelity mockups, which we implemented to the mobile application framework.

Consistent Branding
It’s important to ensure that users associate the new mobile application with the Henderson Oil brand. We used their logo and current website as a style guide for both the mobile and web application front end designs, as well as the icon and copy for the App Store and Google Play Store.

Mobile-Ready

Using the React Native framework, the mobile application can be used for fast ordering and look up real time rates on fuel pricing. The mobile app was created for both iOS and Android app stores, and is developed to be scalable for new features in the future. The mobile app will be a useful tool and assist dealers to place orders quickly and conveniently as more fuel is needed.

User Experience

With a clean design, clear call-to-actions, and light animations the new Henderson Oil mobile application was built to have an intuitive user-flow that guides dealers through the ordering process and assists with any potential order errors before the final order is submitted.

RESULT:

With a mobile friendly ordering system, and a streamlined order management platform, Henderson Oil can better serve their customers and increase dealer satisfaction in the years to come.

Ultimately, in web design, you get what you pay for and as a young entrepreneur, I learned that with cheap web design you end up eventually discarding the project.

I highly recommend Greenstone for your media and web design needs.”
