Revoltt came to us with the idea described above and wanted our help in creating a smart app that could provide exactly this. Combining their market expertise with our Rapid Application Development skills, we were able to come up with a viable solution and started working on a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). This MVP was created using an Agile process, with incremental change and the thought of creating a ‘potentially shippable product’ after every step.
In phase one we went live with this MVP product, in which we set out to explore and to try out new ideas; begin simple and then decide what functionality to expand. After having found the initial right path to take, the application was quickly built and finetuned for use.
The current product has greatly improved: The customer only needs to provide their current energy provider’s annual settlement via WhatsApp, and Revoltt will input the customer’s data into the system and let the algorithm do its work. When the best price is found, the application will automatically request offers from multiple providers and provide the customer with the best one. All that is left to do for them is either accept or decline the offer. The application uses chatbots, machine learning and big data integrations, all combined with the Mendix platform for a seamless user-friendly app experience!
