About the project

About the project

FlowMSP is a company that provides an industry-leading pre-incident planning software platform for the fire service and has successfully cooperated with Volpis for years.
Having worked on the app for the fire services, Jason, the founder, noticed that water services are tightly connected to the fire services.
Moreover, the market seemed unprocessed: the majority of water service providers used no common database; most of the work, like maintenance, and calculations, was done on paper and was prone to human error. The market was waiting for the initiative. And FlowMSP accepted the challenge of conquering it.

About the project

Challenges

Solutions

The business challenge was to understand the market needs and test the market with limited time and budget.

Volpis offered FlowMSP to develop an MVP version of the app to validate their vision and ideas on the market.

Every water service department has its way of managing the services they are providing. The industry lacks a unified approach, terminology, and workflows.

FlowMSP product team and Volpis’ Business Analyst prepared requirements based on the “golden middle” and repeating patterns, preceded by the potential customer interviews.

The product’s primary need was a need to manage tens of thousands of assets (hydrants, different types of mains, curb stop valves, shut-off points) on the map.

We built a map view using clusterization and filters based on the microsystems and interdependencies of water objects.

As a water network is a set of relations, the map objects could not exist standalone on the map. Our task was to display these relations without overwhelming the map.

We added active and inactive states for some map objects so that they could reflect active or inactive relations between map objects.
