Puls Tablet

About This Project

In 2015 Deutsche Telekom launched the Puls. This tablet allows customers to navigate the full range of digital services offered by Deutsche Telekom. Customers can easily watch television content, check their voicemails and control their smart homes all from one device. To develop the software of the Puls, Deutsche Telekom appealed to a team of four Mediaan Android developers. Working with Mediaan was a homerun. Within 5 weeks, they designed and delivered the first Puls prototype.“, says Max Reichert, Deutsche Telekom.

 

Beauty contest

It all started with an invitation to participate in the Telekom’s “beauty contest“ for developing a new consumer device. Deutsche Telekom asked several suppliers to showcase their capabilities by providing their ideas for the new tablet.

We already knew Mediaan to be a competent and reliable partner: they delivered our Speedtest application in 2014. The Speedtest is a critical application for us with thousands of visitors each month. Mediaan delivered the application for a fixed price from start to GoLive in a really short period of just three months. We worked agilely with the Mediaan team using scrum. The experience and result were positive. That’s why we asked Mediaan to participate in the beauty contest. – Max Reichert, Deutsche Telekom

First prototype in just 5 weeks

Deutsche Telekom was faced with the challenge of merging two different experiences: the services of Deutsche Telekom with the standard Android interface. Developing a tablet that not only fulfills these tasks but is also entertaining and user-friendly has proved to be a major task for designers and developers. Using specific Android components, Mediaan managed to deliver a working prototype in just 5 weeks. From that point, on Mediaan was involved in the development of Puls.

 

A big hit with our customers

Deutsche Telekom is very satisfied with the result and the user reviews indicate the project was a total success. The first batch of the tablet was completely sold out within just 3 months. Since then, Deutsche Telekom has increased production and integrated new services to the tablet. One example is the new child modus, developed by Mediaan, which makes it possible for parents to set up a kid-safe zone where it’s safe for young users to use their favorite apps.

The Puls is more than just a tablet to us. It’s an entirely new way for us to engage and be in touch with our customers. Innovating by developing these new digital products is essential to us. Mediaan had the expertise and experience we needed to go from a good idea to a finished product our customers love. The fact that working with Mediaan is fun is just the cherry on top. – Max Reichert, Deutsche Telekom
