Granlund Manager Mobile for iOS to be released at the end of the year

(28.11.2017)

Users were involved in the development of the new iOS app early on.

Granlund Manager Mobile will be released for the iOS platform at the end of 2017. For Android devices, the app has been available since the summer of 2017.

“Based on our positive experiences with the Android version and the excellent feedback provided by customers, we decided to also continue development on an iOS version. Of course, the market shares of smartphones in Finland also played a role,” says Technology Director Kenneth Lassila.

In most countries, Android dominates the market (85%), but in Finland, the user volumes of Apple devices are above the average.

“Here in Finland, Apple’s mobile devices account for about one-third, or 28 percent, of the market, while Android’s share is lower than elsewhere, about 68 percent. Apple is also widely used by many of our customers, and we want to provide them with equally excellent service,” Lassila continues.

Praise for iOS test version

The new version has already been previewed in-house.

“The first estimates of Apple testers have been overwhelmingly positive. I don’t think we should emphasize the differences between the two ecosystems, as both have their loyal supporters. However, it is understandable that iOS users are excited about using Granlund Manager on a familiar platform,” Lassila notes.

Users were involved in the development of the app at an early stage. During the process, usability was ensured through several interviews and pilot tests.

“The result is an intuitive, powerful, and easy-to-use tool. We are developing an industry-leading product together with our customers.”

Granlund Manager Mobile supports a modern mobile property maintenance model, offering new features such as push notifications, maps, and working offline. They help mobile personnel perform their tasks with maximum flexibility and efficiency without unnecessary intermediate steps or transitions. In addition, overviews of different processes are available in the form of intelligible diagrams.
