After 18 months of work the product was initially released as a native desktop application and responsive web product as this targeted FastMarket’s highest value and largest user base. The product was received well by the vast majority of user’s, several bugs were logged and worked on! A few months after the native iOS and Android applications were released, enabling all users to review commodity prices and news updates on the go. The aim for the project at this stage was to continue to integrate the groups other, smaller applications into the unified platform. At this stage however the client had managed to assemble an internal design team, which was now assuming control of the product. A brief handover period was scheduled whilst the teams work transitioned client side.
The web and desktop applications enabled users' to create custom workspaces, where 'widgets' could be added, resized and reorder as necessary. Prices and news widgets could be viewed if differing ways (charts, tables, etc) depending upon their role and preference. The native application was much more refined in approach, acting as a price tracker. Prices which were favourited or added to a workspace were automatically imported and added to the app's price page. Some images of the product can be seen below.
