CASE STUDY

Extra Space Storage

​The Opportunity

ExtraSpace Storage is one of the largest operators of self storage in the United States, with offices across the country. They asked SolutionStream to design and develop a mobile app that would provide a range of services for their customers.

​The Solution

We designed and created a mobile app that works on devices of all sizes, allowing customers to effectively and conveniently locate, investigate, rent, manage, and pay for their rented units.

We provided:

  • UI/UX
  • iOS Development
  • Android Development

User Experience

Our UI team translated the best practices of desktop computers, in order to maximize the user’s experience on a mobile device. We began by creating layouts in wireframe format, taking advantage of the extra screen space available on tablet devices and responsively changing content. The resulting design was built according to the ExtraSpace branding guidelines and device-specific methods.

Mobile Development

We developed the ExtraSpace mobile app for both iOS and Android platforms, for use with small-screen mobile devices and tablets. Our development team connected to an existing online API which facilitated a set of robust features: facilities locations, contacts information, unit availability, and the options for users to accept payments via one-time payments and recurring autopay. The new app features integrated maps, account management, checkout options, and the ability to associate photos with units (for insurance and placement recall).
