Project goals

A.S.P. helps cities' government to secure kids crossing the roads near schools, parks and other children places. Purpose of the application is automation of crossing guards activities tracking during their duty, like check in automatically whenever guard reaches the place of his duty, or check out whenever they leave it. Before we build a new app version client has complaints about incorrect location tracking and app crashes. The app was build in a way that supporting was too difficult for developers and developers can't deliver new updates in time ranges that client was looking for. Also, the design of the old app was not user-friendly and some functions weren't intuitive for guards. We had to build stable, extendable and maintainable app with a fresh UI/UX and add version for IOS users.

Key challenge

Probably the main challange was user location tracking as most of the logic is based on it. ASP Security Services management should know were their staff are during the shift. Another challange was to implement background data refreshing, so user have to see the latest data without manual screen refreshing. Also not an easy one was to match user interface with designs for all Platforms (IOS, Android) and for different screen sizes.

Our solutions

Working closely with our partner, Mawazo Marketing, team developed XGuard App for IOS and Android OS Platforms that provides a one-stop tool for ASP employees to do their job. Upon login, staff are able to complete COVID-19 daily screening and safety checks, and are able to check-in and check-out of their job shifts. Additional features include: contact with Supervisors and Administrative staff, manage requests for time off, review of completed shifts, notification centre, see their schedule and locations for the duty, receive notifications about changes in schedule and other updates, check in/out whenever they arrive/leave duty locations.

XGuard is only available to employees of ASP Security Services. It is used for the employees to view their shifts/assignments, and communicate with ASP about their attendance. Information tracked by App will be used by ASP Security Services management in order to analyze attendance, create operational reports, etc.
