A fresh wow!
Today we reveal our new logo, branding and website. It has been 8 years since we've launched wowsystems and since then we haven't had the time to bring a new look to our project since we've been so busy. The new logo and colour scheme are applied to all our media channels and artwork. With subtle modern colours, the three dots symbolize the three vectors in which we develop our activity: mobile, interactive and software. The circle shape also pays tribute to our way of thinking and working: a lot of brainstorm, a lot of team-work and constant communication with clients and partners in order to make the wheels spin and go forward. We've also redesigned our flagship star icon as it is used on subtle elements such as backgrounds, stationary and titles. Finally, we've came up with a new tag line that reflects what we are: software artists. We're not just simple developers, we're not the usual geek team or the greyish IT company. We consider ourselves artists and we pay tribute to creativity, great coding and design. We hope you enjoy it.
TCB: revolutionizing the public transport systems
Portuguese Public Bus Service TCB - Transportes Colectivos do Barreiro - are revolutionizing the way citizens interact with their system by offering a new online and mobile platform. We were contracted to develop this platform for iOS, Android and Web. It brings several interesting features and a new approach on how cities and public transport services can be smarter and more efficient. The platform offers an updated real-time map with the position and routes of all the active buses, allowing users to check estimated arrival times to each stop, delays and route information. It also allows users to search for stops, schedules and routes, as well as to contact with the TCB services directly. More innovative are the MyBus and SMARTBarreiro features. The first, allows users to schedule a notification that alerts users 5, 10 or 15 minutes before the scheduled bus arrives at the stop, giving space and time for them to finish a task, breakfast or other situation before "running" to the bus stop. The second brings a whole new level of efficiency and cost-control to TCB. SMARTBarreiro allows users to request a bus deviation to a stop in which it normally doesn't goes. This allows TCB to save on fuel and time but still provide an efficient B2C service. You can find out more on: www.tcbarreiro.pt
