Driving out complexity

Real time optimization of electricity production and consumption is by its very nature a complex task.  With multiple departments relying on Connect for planning, decision making, monitoring and business intelligence, the goal was to create a simple, intuitive interface that could be used by the whole client-organization regardless of role or function, to plan, optimize and monitor electricity production and consumption.

Stoked were able to tie the underlying aspects of an IT system together with the Clients' actual needs. They are interacts professionally and personally with Business, IT and our end users, with clear effect on the results

Design Process

Stoked worked collaboratively with multiple teams across the business to define requirements, test prototypes and design good solutions for all use cases. Building a best in class user experience for Connect, meant it had to work for the many and, not just the few.

To secure this, we relied heavily on input from the market and whenever possible, used video conferencing to get insights and feedback on prototypes from genuine users around Europe, while keeping costs and resourcing low.

Getting to good

Throughout the project, Stoked was able to quickly understand requirements, simplify processes, translate complex ideas into straightforward steps and unite multiple teams across the business from marketing to IT, sales to business development behind the project.

Bringing Value to the project

Stoked was both an extension of the existing team and a savvy, smart collaborator, with an outsider’s view on the industry, which helped internal teams collaborate more effectively, prioritize features and
implement software, plugging effortlessly to the organization.
