Who is our client?

FireCloud365 offers an innovative SaaS solution for managing fire protection systems in facilities, such as hotels, hospitals or warehouses. With the use of the mobile app and near-field communication technology, FireCloud365's goal is to make fire safety easier to maintain.

The challenge

Every utility building has to be fire safety-compliant, with no exceptions. To be authorized for public use, the organizations must comply with the region's fire safety regulations. With that come regular inspections.

The founders of FireCloud365, Kevin and Ryan, noticed this problem and decided to act on it. That's how the cloud-based solution came up - a whole fire-compliance process in a few clicks. How our team contributed to this? Let's see.

The process - from code review to long-term cooperation

We began with a code review. Once all security issues were found and fixed, it was time to improve the platform even more. Hence, we added a QR and NFC scanning feature while our UX/UI designer created a user-friendly interface that provides some forms for a specific asset.

During development, we used AWS (Amazon Web Services) that offers cloud computing platforms and APIs to its users. In this way, all the data can be kept safely in the cloud. And, once again, this solution worked out perfectly.

One thing led to another, and here we're today. A code review turned into a successful long-term cooperation. During this time, our team took care of the redesign and development of the new application on Android and iOS and created a whole new website.

Challenges on the way

The fire compliance checks are scheduled, regular actions. That meant mobile applications had to be prepared for increased traffic on certain time slots, which posed a challenge during development. Also, the checks points can be underground in basements or car parks. Because of that, our team had to develop a solution for the app to work offline. How to overcome those two challenges?

The app is prepared for offline mode, so all the data that was gathered during that time synchronizes with the server once the connection is renewed. Plus, it can work 24/7 and under increased traffic. We used Apollo Client offline cache to manage application state when there is no internet connection available. Each action is queued for execution when the device synchronizes.

Tests made on another level

Here, the deployment process is extremely restrictive, especially when it comes to new features. Everything has to comply with certain technical requirements as well as certificate standards. Due to the scale and importance of the project, it has to be tested before anything goes forward.

Let's see some numbers

  • 5.0

  • 24/7

    that's how long the app works, including offline

  • 70%

    less time needed to complete the inspection

The result

The checks are carried out in the mobile application - once the user logs in, there's a list of tasks with detailed descriptions to complete for that day. The user can walk around the facility and read all QR codes or NFC tags as the application sends information to the base.

Moreover, FireCloud365 generates complete reports on the checks and sends them via email. All the records are held safely in the cloud storage that you can access and manage from the head office.

The solution's goal was to make the management of the fire alarm systems easier, paperless and more efficient - FireCloud365 did it all.
