With this objective in mind, they partnered with Exaltare Technologies to support them in their delivery of two high visibility projects – a waterjet device app, built on Android that would become the digital interface screen on their SeadDart waterjets and a mobile user app, available on both Android and iOS.
iAQUA’s partnership with Exaltare goes right back to their beginning in 2018 where Exaltare were recommended in and supported the website development and maintenance, graphic design, UI imagery and email management.
However, what really differentiated Exaltare from similar scope companies was their ability to also offer Android and App development, API and APK development and much more complex deliverables beyond websites-all through a one-stop service.
They started with the design and delivery of a simple and aesthetic appealing LCD user interface for their water jets. The display technology runs on Android and delivers a modern feature-rich user interface
dashboard, which takes the vehicle user experience to the next level.
With the help of the interface design and development expertise of Exaltare, iAQUA “SeaDart 2” customers now have LCD access to real-time speed, gears, depth,temperature, battery level, direction, GPS position, session time and more all in a simple, modern dashboard.
also share on social media.
The App also allows users to see device location at any time, as is necessary for rental companies and boat captains for example, who can track the location of their rented/loaned water jets. In addition, the phone can interrogate waterjet diagnostics, which are also relayed back to iAQUA headquarters.
Exaltare deployed a seasoned Project Manager along with an Android developer, User App Developer, Back-end Developer, and a DevOps expert. The project started in November 2019 and despite some setbacks
due to Covid and people changes, is now in the final stages of testing and launch (Sep 2021). The project was run using agile methodology for multiple iterative deliverables and the requirements were dynamically fine-tuned as the project developed.
Throughout the entire project Exaltare was highly responsive and communication was always exceptional. Whenever iAQUA applied urgency and pressure, Exaltare consistently delivered against expectations and their code was always ready on time. The project was on budget as agreed and delivered against milestones.
