Our team’s mission was to envision, design and build internet services to create and drive new B2B revenue streams for Verizon. Development ranged from core low-level capabilities to innovative consumer-facing mobile apps.
Core capabilities developed include:
After design, architecture and launch of several core capabilities, we began ideation of consumer experiences that could utilize one or more of the capabilities. We developed several proof-of-concept services and apps, including:
Mobile Connect is a simple, secure mobile identity-based login service. It addresses consumer disengagement, lost transactions for businesses and user privacy concerns that result from too many logins, passwords and profiles.
The service provides a more seamless method of authentication and login than password entry on 3rd party mobile sites and apps — particularly for those consumers who have risky practices of using simple passwords or using the same password for multiple places.
Armed with extensive research of video watching behaviors and cord-cutter interests that we gathered from interview subjects in San Francisco, Seattle, Boston and Dallas, we set out to develop a new social video experience on mobile.
We produced and tested many iterations of interaction prototypes and live apps for iOS and Android that combined short-form video consumption, social clip sharing and live chatting with friends.
Our Watchat apps influenced other Verizon media and messaging app roadmaps.
