Your Voucher Book

Your Voucher Book provides a wide range of dining, leisure and beauty 2 for 1 discount vouchers. This case study demonstrates how we took the printed book and complemented it with a fully bespoke, custom made, native app.

The Task

Having worked with the client for a number of years on their printed voucher book, we were tasked with transforming the client's service offering by creating and developing a fully bespoke native app as well as a brand new, mobile responsive website to process orders for both the printed book and mobile app.

Project Discovery

The client undertook our unique project discovery process which helped us shape their mobile app project to ensure a clear and consistent customer user experience (UX) journey through the app. Our knowledge in UX and user interface (UI) design allowed us to process a clear path in how Your Voucher Book users engaged with the app functionality.

User Experience & Wireframing

During the early stages of design, we went through an in-depth wireframing and prototyping phase to determine the user flow of the app. This resulted in muliple iterations of the wireframes as they needed to be finalised before moving onto the design phase.

The layout would need to mimic the book in some ways, such as using tabs for users to flick between the 3 categories.

How it Works

To get access to a year's worth of offers, users will need to purchase an app subscription. This is done through the website where their account will also be set up in the process.

Once the subscription is set up via the website, the user can log in to the app.

The app offers a number of advantages over the book, such as the redeemed and favourites pages which is automatically synchronised between the app and the website. Therefore, any vouchers favourited on the website will instantly appear on the "favourites" section of the app (and vice versa).

Filter by Your Location

Another unique advantage of using the app is the filter and keyword search.

Allowing users to filter by a location or town, as well as sort by the vouchers nearest to you using geolocation technologies. This can be easily accessed at any time on the full vouchers list.

Each offer has an-in depth information screen. Providing info, rules of use, retailer contact details and its location.

Once the voucher is redeemed, users can view the related vouchers from the same retailer, so multiple vouchers can effectively be redeemed at once.

Accounts and Offers

The all new accounts section of the website allows users to view their past and present subscriptions, update their account and manage their favourited vouchers.

The website includes a fully redesigned offers page which is synced with your account and the app. Any vouchers you favourite on the website will appear on the app automatically.

Back End and Development

At VIA, we only settle for the best. That’s why we provide truly native mobile applications. Rather than taking the quickest solution and building what's known as a "hybrid" app (which are notoriously slow and clunky), we build our apps from scratch with great attention to detail, and with future extensibility in mind.

Thanks to our native approach to mobile applications, our apps are always fast, quick and easy to navigate, and highly future-proof. Additionally, we design and build our UI for both the iOS and Android platforms separately as we don't believe in a "one size fits all" methodology.

Working with Dave and the team at VIA Creative has been seamless. I approached VIA with a very short time frame for the build of the Your Voucher Book app and new website. From the initial discovery meeting to the launch they worked hard to ensure this deadline was met.

Their ability to quickly build an understanding of the project meant that development went smoothly, accurate timelines were met and they kept me up to date on the progress throughout.

Terry's technical acumen and professionalism meant that through every step of the project appropriate solutions were always found for any issues that arose. He came up with ideas on the functionality and security features which have resulted in a secure, user friendly app for both retailers and consumers.

Simon is a talented designer who came up with some great designs for the app and website that look fantastic and really brings the branding together.

The project was ably complemented by their front-end developer Martin, I was reassured by his knowledge in quickly establishing fixes to technical issues that arose and his ability in developing the ease in which the app worked on mobiles was very impressive.

I am extremely happy with the completed project and would highly recommend using VIA Creative, they are a talented team and a pleasure to work with.
