simplabs worked closely with Trainline’s in-house engineering team and built a mobile web app to accompany the existing desktop app. A dedicated site for mobile devices allowed Trainline to better serve customers on the go and leverage the full market potential.
Mark Holt, Trainline CTO
Working closely with Trainline's engineering and product teams, we were able to deliver the first version of the mobile web app on time and budget, continuing to extend and improve it afterwards. Our experts also leveled up the team's experience and helped them internalize modern and idiomatic practices for developing web apps via pairing sessions and code reviews.
In addition to supporting Trainline with engineering resources and expertise, we were able to help improve the engineering process by establishing and solidifying an iterative approach. This resulted in more efficient prioritization and a better sense of progress for both engineers and management.
Besides working on the core application, simplabs spearheaded several engineering efforts focused around mobile performance, improved load times, server side rendering and localization. We were able to achieve substantial improvements, resulting in a much improved user experience and increased sales.
