Improving the customer experience of the city bike service
The Helsinki region public transit’s (HSL) city bike program’s iconical yellow bikes were put under the microscope after the pilot season was over in autumn 2016. Frantic stepped into the picture as HSL’s digital service design lead in January 2017 and took on the challenge of improving and including new features into the popular service during the next two bikeshare seasons.
A smooth digital customer experience with service design
Retiring or starting a rehabilitation process is a big life change. Applying for a benefit and tracking the progress of the application process should be as easy and smooth as possible. Our client Varma, a Finnish pension insurance company, wanted to improve the customer experience of their beneficiaries, so together we embarked on a journey to develop the user experience, usability, and accessibility of their online service.
Tech Lead: Quality and efficiency to service development
Our technical expert led the multi-vendor development team from the first lines of code all the way to the launch of the service.
Design Lead: Optimizing processes and bridging gaps

Ask, don’t assume – getting started with user engagement
When we’re heading into a new project or renewing an existing service, how do we make sure that we really listen to our customers, the end-users? Whose experiences, needs, and wishes should we be interested in, and how do we reach them?
What have you always wanted to know about web accessibility? We asked our network to ask us anything, and now our accessibility experts give their two cents.
UX storytelling and measuring your success
Content is an integral part of digital services. Still, it’s often overlooked when we design the ins and outs of user interfaces. How does UX writing help in creating successful user experiences and how can we measure that success?

Here's what's up
Together with TAPIO Group, we embarked on a journey to unify their three webshops into one eCommerce service that’s easy to run, while offering a customized experience for the end-customer.
🛒 Tapio’s new webshop has two tailored views for each of Tapio’s target groups, but they share the same shopping cart, which allows the customer to purchase products from both of the shops at one go.
🌱 The selection spans both physical and digital products, from forest tree seeds and maps to licenses and permits.
📂 While the customer may see two separate webshops, the product information is actually handled and stored in Tapio’s ERP, bringing efficiency and ease for the upkeep.
🔗 The new eCommerce solution is executed with WooCommerce, with integrations to several systems like payment and bookkeeping, multiple delivery partners, and product creators – some products are even created on-demand based on the order.
⏱ The new setup with its automations saves the customer service personnel’s valuable time.
Check the webshops out:
Together with the Finnish section of Amnesty International, we renewed Amnesty.fi into a modern and adaptable web service entity.
🔧 The service went under a comprehensive user experience overhaul, and now the content is structured and petition sections crafted to serve the user better.
🌏 The renewal is an example of how a local section can positively impact the service development of the umbrella organization, as the local improvements made by our experts can now be taken into use on a global scale as well.
