This is a submission for the BP-SUTD Information Technology Project Competition which was awarded the runner-up position. The task was to build a unit conversion mobile application which converts between all major energy units related to the Hydrocarbon commodities business.
Problem Field studies revealed that commodity traders work with up to 8 monitor screens at a time. However, doing a simple unit conversion entails opening up an extra browser or calculator window, which is troublesome and time-consuming, a big no-no in the fast paced environment.
Solution My team sought to create a completely immersive but ultimately simple experience in unit conversion, including categorisation of units, instant conversion and favourites based on user input and behaviour. Considerations were also given to portray BP branding, look and feel.
