Knauf is one of the leading suppliers of building materials in the world. The company produces and sells finishing materials on 5 continents, in 80 countries. 

It was founded in 1932 as a family business. The company strives to make it easier for both professional and non-professional customers to create perfect surfaces with their products. 

Challenge

We held conversations with the Marketing Manager from Knauf. They wanted to create a product that would be helpful for professionals as well as end users who want to renovate their interiors and check the results of their work easily even before buying a product. That’s how an idea for Knauf Surface Finishing came around. 

We’ve built a mobile app which has made it possible to overcome barriers that non-professional users have to pass through when they renovate their homes. Knauf Surface Finishing also helps professionals speed up the process.

Core features of the app:

  • surface quality simulator — 3D room visualisation to see the product quality 
  • lighting simulation to see the result in different light conditions
  • calculator to provide customers with an approximate material consumption estimation for joint treatment and surface finishing
  • quick access to tutorial videos to guide customers through every step of renovating activities

Our Partner is a large corporation and as a result, many of the decision-makers participated in the project and had the opportunity to introduce changes and modifications to it. The challenge was to coordinate activities for many departments of the company and reconcile all activities in organisational terms.

Project's scope

To fully understand our Partner's vision and choose the right solutions, we started our cooperation with unusual workshops using the one-way mirror. We collected the needed documentation to start the project, created designs and built apps for iOS and Android along with the backend for hosting video tutorials. Then we launched them on mobile stores. We’ve also taken part in the process of improving the company website. We still cooperate with Knauf to maintain and support the apps.
