Plants & Pots is an online shop offering a wide range of plants with matching pots. It was created in 2019 as one of the Lethe brands. Their main goal is to encourage people to decorate their interior with potted plants as they can not only improve the aesthetics of rooms but also provide a lot of positive energy for those around them.
The Founder & CEO together with a brand manager of Plants & Pots came to us with an idea for an ecommerce mobile app based on their existing website. Being aware of the benefits and importance of great customer experience when shopping online and the growing percentage of purchases on mobile devices, they had clear goals for this app:
- Increasing sales through convenient shopping from mobile devices
- Gaining a new way of communication with customers and making it easier for them to contact Plants & Pots
- Help in making a purchase decision with Augmented Reality (AR) module to visualize how the plant looks like in real life
- Helping users to take care of their plants by sending notifications to remind about watering them
The application was intended to convey the essence of the website, so we had to implement the features from the webpage into the mobile app (the whole products database, integrating the e-commerce system and the payment system).
We started our cooperation by presenting the prototype of the app based on the website design project. Then we conducted workshops in which we were advising our Partner’s designer about the graphic design for the mobile app.
After that, we were responsible for the mobile app development, backend development and integrating the app with our client’s ecommerce system. With the AR module as one of the app features, our additional task was to prepare 3D models of the plants.
With benefits of cross-platform app development (lower cost and faster development thanks to writing only one app for both Android and iOS platforms), we decided to create this ecommerce mobile app using Flutter and a little bit of native code parts for the AR module.
- 1 designer for workshops
- 2 Flutter developers
- 1 backend developer
- 1 QA tester
- 1 Project Manager
During the entire cooperation, we had transparent communication with our Partner. The Plants & Pots team had full access to the workspace in Jira and a dedicated channel for daily communication with our specialists on Slack. Besides, we were always open to email messages and had video calls on Google Meets.
