We were briefed to develop a Vineyard Manager App for Carteirra. A place where customers can keep tabs on their barrel of wine through every stage of the process from grape to bottle.
Key information to be conveyed through regular (weekly) updates:
A progress report module, which calculates the progress of your product based on the date it was purchased against the production time-line.
A weather report for the vineyard location. The local weather data will be obtained from an online weather API.
A clock showing the local time (even winemakers need to sleep).
A private messaging system, that lets customers communicate with the winemaker directly using an online inbox. Each winemaker can view and reply to customer messages.
And, finally, a blog containing periodic video and/or image updates from the vineyard or cellar.
