Services Industriels de Genève – Mobile App for meter management
Context and challenge
SIG distributes electricity, gas and water in the Geneva canton. The need to access their applications when on the move became essential.
After a comparative study of market solutions led by SQLI, SIG wanted to validate the technical feasibility of the chosen solution (Adobe Flex) through a meter management Proof Of Concept.
The development of this prototype, led by SQLI, involved several phases:
- Interviews with business users
- Devise and design application ergonomics
- Installation of the required components
- Mobile and SAP back end application developments
- Integration with the canton’s geographic information system
The presentation and demonstration to business users and the IT department enabled:
- The technological choice to be validated,
- The ergonomics of the application to be validated and accepted by business users from the various departments (water, gas, electricity)
