Innovative Design Tool

Omschrijving

Amsterdam Standard has created the calculation tool for the mounting systems for solar panels. It has a user-friendly interface and allows users to make the right calculations for both sloping and flat roofs.

Doel

Esdec needed an update of its system because it was difficult to use, slow to perform, not user-friendly and, moreover, was based on outdated technology. Esdec was planning to launch two new products in Europe and in America and therefore needed a modern system that meets the demands of the new markets.

Resultaat

The calculation tool for the mounting systems for solar panels is already actively used. It has a user-friendly interface and allows users to make the right calculations for both sloping and flat roofs. It is fully integrated with Bing's satellite maps. The calculation tool ensures that users can easily order the right materials for their installations and has already become the starting point for almost every order at the fast-growing Esdec. The system is now also ready for scaling up in more countries.

Overige informatie

From April 2018, a team of two UX designers, two front-end, five back-end developers (including a team leader), a QA and a project manager worked on this project in close collaboration with the Esdec product and marketing team. The system is mainly built in JavaScript (React). The project management on the product side is led by Esdec and the development and infrastructure side are managed by Amsterdam Standard. This project required an in-depth understanding of product characteristics and regulations regarding the US market, as the calculations must conform to US standardization (ASCE 7-16).
