Apps for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone

Mobility is now a core component of how we do business. We’re here to help you determine the best way to use mobile data and apps within your organization.

Around the office, we often say that our clients are extraordinary people doing some pretty amazing things. That’s why mobile development is such a critical component to our modern service offerings. Our clients engage us to develop apps for the iPhone, the iPad, and for all types of Android devices.

We build high-quality, intuitive, and scalable solutions for enterprise and for innovators. Our mobile software is intelligently planned and smartly designed, ensuring that once your app is in the App Store or Google Play, your stakeholders are engaging with your brand in the most positive way possible.

Think of us as your digital partner: we’re here to help get your vision for a mobile app to market, and although we don’t like to brag, we’re good at doing just that.

By 2020, there will be 1.5 mobile devices per capita. There will be 11.6 billion mobile-connected devices by 2020—exceeding the world’s projected population at that time (7.8 billion).

Why do we think mobile?

Your customers are mobile.

Today’s customers expect creative communication. Mobile technologies, in the form of iPhone or Android apps, or mobile-friendly websites, ensure that you’re not leaving valuable opportunities on the table. Drive higher impact interactions, higher customer satisfaction and, ultimately, higher sales, using mobile tech.

Your employees are mobile.

More and more often, your staff is mobile. We’re expecting more of them while their in the field, working with your customers and stakeholders. How we think about being productive in today’s world of work includes thinking about our smartphone and tablet usage, and thinking about when we’re connected (and when we’re not).

Case Study

Go Auto Swipe and Shop App

When Go Auto approached Punchcard about creating an app to help them sell more cars, the idea—Tinder for cars— was immediately appealing to the team. We’ve all struggled with the ability to search for car information from our phones, so we jumped at the chance to help one of the biggest automotive dealers in Canada create an easy way to shop for cars.

Using Facebook’s React developer tools, and Go Auto’s proprietary API to give us access to their inventory, we decided early in the project that the user experience would be the key driving force of the app’s success. Clean lines and intuitive gestures were the driving force behind the front-end development, while the back-end focused on building a solid foundation that could easily support additional features and upgrades in the future.

Functionally, the app is incredibly easy to use: after choosing search parameters, users can swipe left to dismiss a vehicle listing, or swipe right to store it in their list for future reference. A quick tap on the listing will open up more detailed information about the vehicle, and you can easily book a test drive by text or phone call right from the main search screen.

The app requires no information from the user and instead uses the phone’s unique ID to access the user’s list of stored cars. As cars are sold, they are automatically removed from a user’s list using live API pulls; this ensures that app data is always up-to-date.

Case Study

flit! A Family Literacy Toolkit

The Centre for Family Literacy is dedicated to helping families grow and prosper. Through programs focused on both adult and family literacy, the CFL helps Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.

Last year, the team at the CFL approached us with a simple challenge: we need an app. After working collaboratively, and with support from the Edmonton Community Foundation, the Centre and Punchcard launched Flit, or Families Learning and Interacting Together.

Composed of over 100 activities in eight categories focused on literacy and numeracy development, the purpose of the app is to put a toolkit in the hands of Alberta parents for everyday family literacy.

Flit takes advantage of the Ionic Framework, which enabled our team to rapidly design and develop this app, while planning for cross-platform (iOS and Android) deployment.
