About the Product

Out of the many projects we delivered for TNB, a key project was to develop an Android and iOS customer service application to function as a service gateway between the electric utility company and its subscribers.

The Challenge

Our client, TNB wanted a mobile solution to serve as a service and communication gateway for their millions of electric subscribers. This highly visible mobile app needed to be practical, user-friendly and of top-notch quality in its design and experience to serve such a large user base. TNB was on the lookout for a software development company that was capable and experienced in delivering projects of such a colossal scale, and they found us to be the right fit for it.

Solution

The Solution

To live up to TNB’s reputation and to cater to their expansive customer base, we delivered a solution that was compatible with iOS and Android and, at the same time, also provided impressive user experience and robust, maintainable code that allowed for future extensions. The MyTNB app is an efficient channel of customer service for TNB that has substituted the need for customers to visit TNB offices and billing kiosks. With MyTNB they can do everything through their app from tracking their energy consumption to paying their bills.

MyTNB’s personalized dashboard allows customers to conveniently track energy consumption and compare their monthly usage with the help of an interactive graph. In addition, the app includes many other functionalities such as paying utility bills, submitting applications for new supply connections, and following the latest news and announcements from TNB. Apart from what the consumers interact with on the app, it is architected for secure integration with TNB’s backend systems for organization-wide access to customer information and activities. Ever since the first release in 2015, there have been numerous enhancements made to the app and the app has had an estimated 1,000,000+ downloads. We take pride in the fact that GoodCore is on TNB’s panel for mobile app development.

Our Process

Our process of app development followed the agile model that began with an extensive requirement analysis phase which required our in-house team to initially work with TNB’s team onsite. We defined their expectations and requirements for the app and came up with detailed documentation containing TNB’s functional, performance, security, and integration requirements.

The requirement analysis was followed by finalising the design and drawing up wireframes for the different components of the application. We built the MyTNB application using Java and Objective-C and used SQLite to store and handle the data. We integrated the app with TNB’s backend system, a payment gateway, SMTP for transactional emails, and Google Analytics.

Throughout the development process, there were numerous rounds of internal regression tests followed by User Acceptance Testing (UAT) sessions in a staging environment, before the official release of the app to the public in 2015.
