Delivered an App that Makes Searching for Hydraulic Filter Elements Easier

  1. 1. Case StudySolutions Bosch Rexroth has thousands of customers worldwide who are dependent upon the company for various industrial parts to run their operations. Hydraulic filter elements are among the most in-demand parts because of the extensive use that they undergo. Bosch Rexroth wanted to give its customers the ability to use their smartphones and tablets to lookup information on its filter elements. The users of this app needed the ability to quickly find the replacement for their existing filter element using either the existing part number or model number. All the relevant information regarding the parts also had to be displayed, including detailed technical specifications. But displaying only product information was not enough since customers also need to have the ability to contact Bosch’s customer support team and order online. The challenge for our developers was to create a mobile app that answered all these concerns. The project had three major objectives: give users the ability to find the replacement of their existing filter elements, the search should be possible using either the full model number or even a partial model number and have the capability to contact the company or place an order. Softweb’s developers created the app, Fit4Filter, using Objective C, and developed it for both the Android and iOS platforms. The app works in offline mode. The Fit4Filter app takes advantage of mobile devices and delivers Bosch Rexroth filter elements in the palm of your hand. It is now possible to search for the filter element replacement using just the existing Part Number or Model Number. If the perfect replacement filter element is found, then the detailed technical specification of the Bosch Rexroth filter element and contact info is displayed for fast ordering. The Fit4Filter App is quick to use and easy to navigate regardless of if you are using Search, looking up local Contact information or just changing the local Settings. Bosch Rexroth AG is one of the world’s leading specialists in the field of drive and control technologies. Under the Rexroth brand name, the company supplies more than 500,000 customers with tailored solutions for driving, controlling, and moving. Bosch Rexroth is a partner for Mobile Applications, Machinery Applications and Engineering, Factory Automation and Renewable Energies.

The aim of developing the Fit4Filter app was to take advantage of mobile devices and deliver Bosch Rexroth filter elements to its consumers. iOS Compatible Available in English and German Detailed Product Information Android Compatible Optimized for iPhone 5 Solutions Challenge Background Delivered an app that makes searching for hydraulic filter elements easier
