To ensure customers could access equipment information wherever they worked, Foley partnered with DEG to build a mobile app that included an offline mode for remote-location access.
Construction workers go wherever their jobs take them—from rural roadsides to large urban centers. Frequently, contractors are in areas where there’s no internet connection, so they can’t access websites and mobile apps with the vital information needed to operate, request support for, and rent heavy construction equipment. That is, until one equipment dealer created an app that worked wherever they needed.
Foley Equipment is a family-owned Midwest company offering Caterpillar construction equipment for purchase and rental. To ensure customers could access equipment information wherever they worked, Foley partnered with DEG to build a mobile app that included an offline mode for remote-location access.
When at a construction site, heavy equipment operators and managers need to access up-to-date information on the machines they’re using and any additional equipment they require to get the job done. While Wi-Fi can be spotty at best, DEG and Foley focused on creating an offline, user-friendly experience within the new mobile app.
Knowing the mobile app needed to allow potential and current customers to view the equipment catalog and machines currently being rented, and request support and pick-up services, DEG reviewed all the content Foley wanted to deliver to its customer’s fingertips. The agency focused on user experience and made recommendations for information consolidation and design within the app to ensure customers are satisfied with content they can access on the job site.
