TowTrack stands as a cutting-edge mobile application meticulously crafted to deliver swift towing solutions for a myriad of transportation challenges within the private sector.

Whether you find yourself in the aftermath of an accident or require a flatbed tow, TowTrack seamlessly links you with trustworthy and proficient towing service providers.
 

Boasting an intuitive interface, the app simplifies the process of requesting services, offering real-time tracking capabilities for the assigned towing vehicle, and providing a secure digital payment system. TowTrack places a premium on both speed and quality, guaranteeing that your vehicle is treated with precision and transported securely to its designated destination.

About Tow Track

It's a new app, so I needed to design all the main screens. There were a lot of problems, and a few more that I found during the research. The following are the main problems:
 

  • Delayed Access to Towing Services:
    Users often face challenges in promptly accessing reliable towing services during emergencies or breakdowns, leading to prolonged wait times and potential safety concerns.

     

  • Lack of Visibility and Assurance in Towing Processes:
    Traditional towing services may lack transparency, leaving users uncertain about the location and progress of their vehicles during the towing process, causing anxiety and discomfort.

     

  • Inconvenient and Insecure Payment Transactions:
    Conventional payment methods for towing services often involve cash transactions or navigating through multiple channels, posing inconveniences and potential security risks for both users and service providers.

Problems

For this project, our primary target user persona is a B2C individual—an end customer in need of towing services for their private car. 

Main Persona

  • A user requiring towing service that can quickly respond to emergencies, ensuring minimal downtime. Real-time tracking is essential for her peace of mind, allowing her to know when the tow truck will arrive and where her vehicle is at all times.
     

  • A user requiring towing services that cater to diverse situations, ranging from flat tire assistance to off-road recovery. They value a dependable app that connects them with towing providers and ensures secure payment transactions

My Role and Challenges 

Role - Product designer 
As a Product Designer I held complete design-ownership over the project. 

The client initially reached out to me online, expressing enthusiasm about a compelling app idea. Upon sharing some initial details, the client mentioned having established branding and expressed the need for a well-crafted design for app.
 

Embarking on this project was an enjoyable endeavor. It involved undertaking both the UX and UI design for the entire application.


Challenges

  • How do you create a design that doesn't include all screens but is compelling enough
    to sell the startup pitch?

  • How do you focus only on the primary workflows for the POC? (Which screens to include)
     

Despite the challenges presented by the project, I successfully addressed them by employing effective UX design and maintaining open communication with the client.
