Story

Project Overview
2020-Today

Bringing It all together

In February 2020 the Munich housing cooperatives reached out to us to identify an appropriate solution to their needs in digitalization.
The domains included booking of shared resources, participation, discovery and exchange in quarters as well as co-working, energy management and mobility.
We therefore set up the strategy and processes to analyse and evaluate their needs.
We brought multiple organisations together, organised and facilitated workshops with stakeholders and spoke to a multitude of people and providers to evaluate existing solutions.
We then decided to start a brand an independent and brand new platform and up until now support from strategy and shaping the business model to constantly evolving the platform and its products.

Creating a new (visual) identity

With our amazing partners Eva Schlotter, Marie Kreckl and Florian Fischer from Helmut Morrison we facilitated the brand strategy and creation starting from people and their vision to the actual name and identity.

Concept & Innovate

We conducted more than 20 interviews with representatives of our target groups.
This way we identified more than 50 requirement domains including up to 20 sub areas which we afterwards transformed into usage and system requirements.
Based on extensive market and product research we began to translate our findings into process schemas and information architectures, came up with solutions drafts in the form of wireframes and user journeys and validated them in user tests and interviews.

Design & UI

From our previous steps we were now able to derive needs for our interfaces in terms of semantic and visual requirements.
The user test results were used to create an intuitive approach to discover and interact with the platform while aligning with common usage patterns.
UI kits were used to quickly draft complex information hierarchies and through iterations we moved to highly sophisticated clickdummy prototypes which were constantly validated in tests and interviews with our stakeholders.
We put a lot of detail into bringing our new brand to life in look and feel of the product.

Tech integration, Operations and Extension

We started with a modular setup to get up and running as soon as possible as well as testing and fixing implemented features.
With our lean and agile development team we started with three products all built internally on state-of-the-art Typescript, React and NodeJS frameworks: Administration Frontend, Customer Frontend and Backend.
Since our beta launch in 2020 we constantly improve existing features and add new modules in our sprints from discovery to delivery.
To always provide the technical layers actually needed we are also in charge to manage the infrastructure, moving from technical prototype to scalable clusters as well as monitoring, reporting and managing incidents.

Nua Studios has not only enriched #UnterkunftUkraine with their comprehensive expertise, flexibility and sensational project management and thus contributed decisively to our success and purpose.

All Nua colleagues also bring genuine joy to meaningful projects, so that they were so much more than a supporting service provider in the classic sense - for us, they were full-fledged members of our team from the very beginning, from whom we also learned a lot along the way.

Nua Studios sind seit der ersten Idee für Klink bis hin zum laufenden Betrieb eine wertvolle Unterstützung für uns. Dank des vielfältig aufgestellten Teams konnten sie Aufgaben von Konzeption über UX-/UI-Design bis hin zur Entwicklung und zum Betrieb übernehmen. Abhängig von der Produktreife haben wir so immer genau die Hilfe erhalten, die wir benötigt haben.

Besonders beeindruckend ist nicht nur die Flexibilität, sondern auch die exzellente Zusammenarbeit im Team, die stets funktional und gut abgestimmt ist.

Ich habe Nua Studios gerne weiterempfohlen, weil es definitiv großen Bedarf an guten Partnern in der Entwicklung von IT Applikationen gibt und Handschlagqualität sowie Termin- und Kostentreue garantiert sind.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Nua Studios war sehr professionell und vor allem inspirierend. Die Umsetzung der UI und UX unserer gamified Piano Learning App Wunderkind, sowie einer Webapplikation mit MIDI Schnittstelle zu einem MIDI Musikinstrument, waren erstaunlich intuitiv und optisch sehr ansprechend.
