Work experience in co-operation with Liberty IT

Design and innovation studio Big Motive taught us the process of Design Thinking, which included:

  • Empathetic Design
  • Defining the problem
  • Ideation - divergent and convergent thinking
  • Prototyping
  • Testing

  • Our team applied this methodology to a problem that Liberty IT (our chosen company) gave us to solve:

    A contractor spends 23 minutes a week filling-in their timesheets.

    The current solution was an online spreadsheet which was filled-in at the end of each week.

    We were tasked to lower the time spent each week.
    In order to solve this, we proposed an app which could be used anywhere by the end user.

    We also added a daily notification if the user had not filled in their time sheets, as we realised this was more efficient than trying to remember the week's events on a friday.

    I created the prototype by developing an app in 1 day using React Native and Firebase.
