Post office application on Windows Phone

We value our customers’ preference not to reveal projects we have done for them in public marketing materials. So there are no names and direct links on the applications we have done, only description of functionality, expertise, and technologies.

Customer profile

Leading French provider of postal services.

Business needs

The customer decided to migrate the existing iPhone application to Windows Phone platform soon after its release in order to provide a broader range of clients with access to his services.

Our solution

Noveo has designed and developed an application that allows users to:

  • search parcels by their number and track their states;
  • search the nearest post offices taking into account users’ geolocation information;
  • search the post offices by code/CEDEX and city;
  • view user’s position and the position of the found post offices on the map;
  • view the schedule and the services of post offices;
  • calculate tariffs for sending letters and parcels inside France, Europe Union and overseas;
  • view the latest news of the company;

Regardless the fact that the platform was quite new and imperfect, all the features of original application have been successfully implemented.
