About the business

Cordic is a leading fleet management SaaS provider to UK taxis. They have been connecting British taxi drivers and passengers
demand an app for many years. Their old, once fairly functional and helpful application could no longer compete with Uber and other technologically advanced companies.

We were helping Cordic to build a solution that would enable them to take rapid actions and withstand market turbulence. Modern, technologically advanced software could give additional business opportunities.

  • Adding an extra revenue stream by renting their software to other taxi fleets.
  • Ensuring customer retention and driving user acquisition
  • Increasing market share and remaining competitive


Project tasks

  • To develop a cross-platform mobile application with a modern, reliable and visually appealing interface to be used by passengers of taxis
  • To create a White Label solution, allowing Cordic clients to integrate own branding, customize functionality and adjust settings to the needs of their passengers
  • To make sure the design system allows for consistency, high usability and compliance with minimum standards for approval to the App Store & Google Play across all client apps

Research phase & Product discovery

We visited the client's office in England to host a workshop with the Cordic team. We have identified their major issues and ultimate objectives, determined technical requirements, and gained insights about their current and target audience's needs, peculiar habits, and pain points.

The app was developed as a White Label Solution. We created
a design system that would enable customization of every look and feel to different brand specifications, facilitate the integration of various tools and processes across multiple touchpoints and deliver a seamless, instantly recognizable user experience.
