Adjust your bed with any device
Although Linak already offered wireless remote controls for their drives, it turned to Proekspert to create an app so users could control beds from an iPhone or tablet computer.
Solving problems that may never occur
Priit Rebina, Proekspert’s lead software developer, was tasked with design and user experience. “Part of my job is to think through – and make sure we prevent – all the crazy scenarios that seem like they could never actually happen,” he says.
Example: handling multiple, simultaneous commands like two people attempting to control the bed at the same time, one from a remote, the other from an app.
With these unlikely-yet-possible puzzles solved, Proekspert delivered the app, hardware, and Bluetooth box – all of which communicated with each other – in five months.
So what does Preben Jørgensen, Development Manager, electronics at Linak A/S, want in a software and design agency? “What makes a company good is that they have the core competence and can guide us in the right direction so that we get software that’s reliable and easy to maintain when a new version of the iOS comes out, when new hardware comes out, and six months later you’re not having to redo the software!”
