Cooperation with Globalbit Software Development
Telefire is a leading Israeli company in fire detection and suppression domain. Telefire Alerto is the mobile app for fire safety technicians and building managers. The app assists in deployment and service of the systems, provides monitoring and control, real-time alerts and system status in sites. It guarantees a streamlined workflow for technicians and peace of mind for site owners and managers.
The mobile app supports two main groups of users:

Migrating the workflow of technicians to the new app
This is a small part of the whole interface design and interactions which was designed in Axure. Several iterations were made until the optimal result was achieved.
Telefire has made a successful leap to the cloud based solutions (first of a kind in Israel) in the fire detection and suppression domain, which put them ahead of the competition and guarantees peace of mind for their clients, streamlined workflow for technicians and faster response times to events.
I’m grateful for the given opportunity to be part of the team on this challenging, very interesting and important project.
