Thinking Differently to Deliver a Connected Experience

Connected products can transform the way companies engage with their customers. When Amway chose Vervint to create the connected experience for its Atmosphere Sky Air Treatment System, they found that the right partner could also help transform their team.

Connecting with Customers

Amway’s health and wellness offerings include air and water treatment products to improve home air and water quality. According to the U.S. EPA, home air quality can be up to five times as polluted as outdoor air. That’s why the Amway Atmosphere air treatment system uses a three-stage filtration process that traps and removes various air contaminants. This high-tech product relies on two filters that need to be changed on schedule to ensure adequate air treatment.

To improve lives and gain visibility into the air we breathe, Amway sought to create a mobile app to communicate to customers in several ways:

  • Provide prompts to reorder filters, ensuring seamless operation of the Atmosphere Sky unit.
  • Deliver insights into how well each unit was functioning.
  • Report on the quality of the air in the customer’s area.

A Catalyst for Change

Amway knew creating a connected product would be outside of the comfort zone of many, test processes that had been in place for decades, and force groups to work across silos. Vervint became not just a tech partner; they were a co-catalyst for change.

Vervint worked with Amway as a credible partner to validate the project, provide reassurance to leadership, and set the project on an agile development path.

Vervint had a vision from the beginning to get Amway to stand on our own two feet. Our Vervint partners were there every step of the way and were just as passionate about the success of the product as the Amway team. In the end, everyone identified with the Sky team and project. It wasn’t about who was paying their paycheck, we all had one common goal.

Side-by-Side Every Step of the Way

Once Vervint was added to the ecosystem of partners, they launched a discovery phase, focusing on strategy and UI/UX development leading up to development. The development teams worked seamlessly to create a product that delivers increased value, reliability, and personalization through data utilization created on the AWS platform. Cross functional design and development teams meant solutions were vetted early on, increasing the speed to a solution. 

Vervint’s work with Amway helped set the stage for the company’s further innovation in connected experiences.
