Banglalink is one of Bangladesh’s major telecom service operators, successfully serving the country from early 2005 till now. Banglalink’s initial excellence was built on a simple mission: ” Bringing mobile telephony to the masses”. In the process of digitization, Banglalink wanted to present an app which will be used primarily by end-customers for viewing contents of different self-service options. To make essential services like checking user’s balance, dues, usage history, latest offers to sharing internet, finding nearby service points and many more exclusive options available; Banglalink wished for such an app that will become a one stop solution for their consumers. In this mobile app, users can expect to have easy access to mobile services and features from their smart phone which would make them feel comfortable and bring convenience. Additionally, extra rewards would be available only to users.
My Bl App is an integrated place where users can obtain all these details easily within a moment. Even customized offers can be seen only through this app.
To interact with the huge customer base, Banglalink wanted a scalable, secure and responsive app. Our expert team with vast experience has worked on the project (MY BL app) and within a very short period, successfully launched a previously built project. We work hard to maintain quality standards throughout all aspects of this project, so every detail matters for us! The most important part was understanding how different modules function in order to better understand what changes need implementing or updating next; then upgrading accordingly.
When the app’s version 5.2.0.04 was released by us, one of the challenges was the API reliance. API dependency was critical as third party APIs were already in use for an app. Integrating Payment gateway system was also a challenging job. Integrating a payment gateway system is no easy task and we’re happy to say that the users get benefits greatly from this feature.
We were able to implement all new features as well as increased user engagement because we applied different campaigns to attract users as part of the requirement shared by the client. Even existing users were able to enjoy and use the app even after the upgradation, their journey with the app during the whole time of development was not compromised and handled very carefully. We are constantly in the process of implementing new features for improved usability.
