Connection to AWS Microservice architecture
Native mobile apps for Android and iOS
Code sharing with existing components
Real-time push notifications & customisation
The remit: the development of a central and user-friendly platform for the services and tools offered by the German Press Agency (Deutsche Presse-Agentur).
The platform is designed to provide fast, straightforward access to the relevant dpa offers including dpa-Select and dpa-Agenda.
Intuitive usability for everyone
The challenge was to redesign an existing service from the user’s point of view and come up with an intuitive application that would make it simpler to access dpa services from one main point for existing customers, partners and internal employees.
Factorial’s tech consulting experts worked closely with the dpa team in a collaborative development process.
Real-time notifications and bundling
Factorial developed the dpa ID App – a native mobile app for Android as well as for iOS. The app uses code sharing with existing components from dpa-Select and dpa-Agenda, and is integrated into the AWS Microservice architecture of dpa. The core service consists of an SSO (Single Sign On Service) and an optimised user interface.
A real-time push service was also implemented, which allows users to have topics they’re interested in sent to their smartphones as real-time notifications. This consolidates access for all users in a new communication channel known as “dpa market place”.
