Williams & Partners

Mobile Calculator

The Client

Williams & Partners is a forensics accounting firm that provides a comprehensive range of advisory services to individuals, not-for-profit organizations, start-up companies, small and medium enterprises, and large businesses. The range of services offered include Accounting & Audit, Tax, Scientific Research and Experimental Development “SR&ED”, Succession Planning, and Human Resources Support.

The Project

Currently, Williams & Partners offer a digital calculator to their clients (insurance adjusters) on their website. The native app calculator concept created by them allowed their clients to be able to perform quick, yet complex calculations to support various insurance claims while traveling on the road. However, like any common technology life-cycle, the app became outdated and eventually difficult to use with newer browsers, mobile devices, and platforms. Updating the app became resource heavy in both time and money with their previous agency. Williams & Partners wanted to maintain their competitive edge by offering a reliable app that required little maintenance and create additional calculation functions for their clients.

The Results

After Hubnest performed a complete audit of the app, we identified four goals:

  1. Re-build the calculator to allow for easier updates to accommodate regulatory changes
  2. Create an automated authentication process for insurance adjusters
  3. Improve calculation logic for a broader range of claims
  4. Save/Print/E-mail calculation reports for future use for mediation/arbitration purposes

Hubnest rebuilt the outdated calculator from scratch as a web based HTML5 product and created iOS and Android native applications. This allowed authenticated insurance adjusters to use the calculator directly in their arbitration/mediation meetings. The calculator was built in PHP/HTML5 and fully secured with an SSL encryption. By having a web-based centralized location, updates became easy with a centralized code-base that would affect the web, iOS and Android apps concurrently.
