“WE CAN LEVERAGE TALENT FROM WORLDWIDE—FROM ANYWHERE—AND REALLY ACCELERATE OUR SPEED TO MARKET WHILE IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT.”
Datta Godbole, CTO Honeywell
Honeywell Building Solutions (HBS) made a promise to customers to create a mobile, social app that would make it easier than ever to control building and campus operations. With a user conference just around the corner and limited internal bandwidth to take on the project, Honeywell came to Topcoder to bring their mobile app to life—fast.
Topcoder produced multiple mobile app design concepts to help Honeywell explore the art of the possible and visualize user experience. Honeywell selected the top designs and refined the features that they wanted included, and Topcoder developed the winning design into a clickable app prototype.
In under eight weeks, Honeywell went from an idea and a promise to a user experience they could share with customers to generate feedback and excitement. The Attune mobile app was unveiled at their user conference, fulfilling their commitment to their customers–and demonstrating the innovation that has made them a market leader.
“Crowdsourcing is really an eye opener for us because it helps us understand that development can be done faster.”
Topher Nelson, Product Manager, Honeywell
With Topcoder, Honeywell delivered on their promise to customers and changed the way they think about crowdsourcing for their business. With on-demand access to top talent, Honeywell was able to meet a tight deadline and unveil a modern mobile app that positively impacts customer experience.
