Zudu worked on an exciting app development project for MaiWai, designed to improve workplace engagement. From contactless office key cards to workplace briefings and networking tools to money-saving offers, MaiWai brings colleagues and businesses closer together.
MaiWai asked Zudu to help build a platform for landlords to differentiate themselves and increase tenant retention with a suite of tools connected to their premises. The aim of the app was to facilitate more personalised interactions between businesses and their employees. MaiWai wanted a platform where landlords could gain insights into how their buildings were being used, meet their social responsibility requirements, and deliver value to end-users, offering a direct link to building management, and convenient add-ons like keyless entry.
We developed an application that utilises near-field communication on iOS and Android devices to allow for contactless entry at a number of buildings and office spaces across the UK. A content management system was built to help businesses promote news and events, and a messaging platform developed to help end-users contact reception staff and alert the facilities team to building maintenance issues. We also built a bespoke booking system to allow users to arrange meetings and conferences, integrated APIs to allow for weather reports and ridesharing tools, and a user marketplace to enable buying, selling, and swapping of goods. Advanced customisation tools were also built-in to allow landlords and tenants to customise the appearance of their app, allowing MaiWai to be white-labelled.
Speaking of the project, Richmond Amoah, MaiWai Director, said: “Too often employees don’t feel connected to both their colleagues and their workplace. However, we believe Landlords and Employers have to provide an exceptional workplace experience to attract the very best tenants and employees. MaiWai was created to achieve just this using the power of technology. Zudu has been an invaluable development partner for us on this journey.
“We knew the development of the app was going to be challenging. But we are extremely pleased we had the support of Zudu throughout the journey. In addition to developing the app, they went above and beyond to help us with commercialisation by supporting us with our initial marketing to win our first customers. James himself travelled from Dundee to London for a presentation we had with a potential client. We were impressed with Zudu’s commitment”
