Type of business

The solution
Swenson He evaluated the current industry landscape and quickly realized there were no existing technologies that could meet simplehuman’s specifications. Specifically, simplehuman wanted a highly customizable subscription service for its customers that could be seamlessly integrated with its existing Magento e-commerce platform and fulfillment systems. By the end of the project, we worked with the simplehuman team to develop a UI for the app that was responsive, intuitive and highly functional. On the server side, Swenson He built a highly scalable, performant, globally distributed system named The Zip Network™ that beat all leading standards in terms of IoT speed, reliability and scalability.

The results
Swenson He’s close partnership with simplehuman resulted in a beautiful, extremely intuitive user interface and highly rated user experience that is built on cutting edge server technology. Not only is the app increasing simplehuman’s brand awareness and customer loyalty, subscription sales have generated a healthy stream of recurring revenue. See it for yourself here.
