Mirrorcheck

OVERVIEW

Mirrorcheck is an application for extremely secure selfies. It lets users insure their phones by taking a photo in the mirror. After taking a picture, our app uses advanced algorithms to check the condition of a screen. If a screen is deemed as fully-functioning, the user is given the option of insuring their device right away in accordance with terms that have been previously established with our partner. This solution lets users insure used phones without leaving their house. The application gives our partners an opportunity to gain additional customers.

Challenge

Mirrorcheck, much like Scanbox, is our response to the problem of checking the condition of a screen in a used smartphone. This time, however, the process takes place remotely and lets a client insure their device without having to leave the house. People who can’t get to a partners’ POS but are looking for a way to insure their smartphone or smartphone screen can now do so via our dedicated mobile app – Mirrorcheck. It's the perfect solution for modern, tech-savvy, time-saving people.

Solution

Mirrorcheck is a mobile app which lets users check the condition of a screen and get it insured from anywhere in the world. This easy-to-use and intuitive mobile app is available for smartphones with Android and iOS. Moreover, it can be easily customized for any of our partners. It can used as a stand-alone app in a software manufacturers’ stores, but can also be integrated with an operator’s services and made available in their offer.

How it works

When we were working on Mirrorcheck, our idea was one step ahead of the technology that was available at the time. Front-facing cameras in phones offered poor-quality photos which in turn resulted in a very poor user experience (UX) as taking an appropriate picture in a mirror wasn’t easy. Secondly, captured images were of a terrible quality, and therefore our algorithm couldn’t properly detect what condition a screen was in.
Mobile technology has developed rapidly over the past 2 years. Devices are of a much better quality, feature increasingly more advanced cameras and offer better photo resolution. Therefore, photos taken with Mirrorcheck can now be easily analyzed with our damage detection technology.





Główną działalnością Digital Care stało się projektowanie i wdrażanie innowacyjnych programów ubezpieczeniowych i usług dla urządzeń mobilnych, które oferowane były przez partnerów przy zakupie telefonu. Jeśli kupujesz produkt ochrony swojego telefonu u swojego operatora , najprawdopodobniej jest to jeden z produktów stworzonych we współpracy z Digital Care. Obejmowanie ochroną nowych telefonów, będących w momencie objęcia ochroną w nienagannym stanie, Digital Care bez problemu robi od ręki. Co jednak z telefonami, które klienci już używali i mają w kieszeni? W Polsce ok. 50% umów o usługi telekomunikacyjne podpisywane jest bez telefonu, w Rosji jest to X, a w Turcji nawet X. Oznaczało to, że do tej pory ogromna część klientów naszych partnerów nie mogła zakupić ochrony dla swoich używanych telefonów. Chcieliśmy odpowiedzieć na ich potrzeby i dać im komfort, że cokolwiek stanie się z urządzeniem, mogą je naprawić. Potencjał ten wykorzystaliśmy, projektując Scanbox.

User interfaces

before after

Mobile technology has experienced rapid development over the past 2 years: much better quality of devices, more and more advanced cameras and their resolution. Thanks to that, the photos taken with Mirrorcheck can be easily analyzed with our damage detection technology.

“Up until now, a selfie in the mirror was used to make a statement on social media. At Digital Care Lab, we made selfies into it a pass for improved smartphone security and user comfort. Tests of our screen analysis algorithms gave positive results and led to the creation of the very first application of its kind. Mirrorcheck lets our partners acquire new customers remotely and gives them certainty as to the reliability of our device analysis. Additionally, partners get to offer their customers an innovative service that hasn’t been used before.”
