SPRT – An App For Local Fitness Events Search

SPRT is an application for a German market that allows people to find local fitness events and join sports communities. We helped to revamp the application, add new features, and make it even easier to navigate.
BACKGROUND STORY

The Idea Behind

In 2019, Jakob Jakubov – one of the founders of the SPRT app – got in touch with our agency. At that time, he and his team have been developing the SPRT application that enables people to find sports activities and communities nearby. The app was already actively working in Berlin and several German cities. Our client wanted to enhance the app with new functionality and improve the overall user experience.

To select the best agency, our client started a tender. To participate in a tender, we had to design several screens for the application.

You made perfect work, how can I come to your city in the fastest way?
We need to cooperate!

Finally, we were chosen among 10 other design agencies. Jakob arrived in town and we spent several days working closely to revamp the rest of the application, combining our work with gastro tourism.
PROCESS

PROJECT GOALS

Jacob asked our team to design new features that would extend the existing functionality of the app. Since the app and its target audience were growing, it was necessary to come up with features that would attract new users and retain the existing ones.

We also had to rethink the existing navigation flow and align it with new functionality, so users could effortlessly find what they were looking for.
SCOPE OF WORK
Events Creations

Events creation feature boosts the community and user-generated content.
Sell Tickets

Ticket selling helps retain users on a platform and get access to events immediately.
Clear Navigation

New functionality required new navigation and keeping a recognizable flow.
Feed Screen Update

We also added several touch-ups to a feed screen to keep up with the look and feel of the app.

INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE
Before designing wireframes and prototypes, we've created information architecture. The information architecture helps us organize the content into meaningful blocks and devise clear and simple navigation for end-users.
In 2019, SPRT won a Startup Battle organized by Austrian startup accelerator 360 Lab. The SPRT team received €100.000 funding, a 4 months accelerator support, and a chance to enter the international market with support of 360 Lab in Silicon Valley. We're proud of working with the SPRT team and creating something meaningful and life-changing together!

Achievements

VISUAL DESIGN

See how the SPRT app transformed

A Discovery screen features convenient filters that allow users to find preferable activities off-hand: from the type of sports to specific ones like women-only. The Connectivity tab helps users connect with people from past training sessions and engage them in a community.

Discovery

Users are able to browse existing events and add their classes and sports workshops. Such a feature allows the SPRT platform to drive user-generated content and extend the range of available sports activity options.

Events

With the ticket selling feature, the SPRT app received a monetization opportunity. Moreover, since users can purchase the tickets straight in the app, it helps to retain them on a platform and boost their loyalty.

Buying Tickets

We designed a personal profile that allows users to quickly and effortlessly find the necessary information and keep communication with their sports buddies.

Profile & Chat

The redesign work is progressing well and almost complete, with the new screens receiving positive feedback from its users. They manage the project effectively using a variety of technologies, and offer excellent quality for the price point they operate at.
