Pickler has a huge knowledge database to check the packaging materials, production and delivery methods, country of production, and end-of-life scenarios (treatment of waste) to make the calculations as precise as possible. The founders did an enormous amount of work to accumulate all this data and bring it to us to design and develop the product.
Turning database into a web application
Previously all the work was done manually in the Airtable sheets. Our job was to automate the process as much as possible.
Have all the main features worked out for MVP
We focused on such features as uploading products to the service easily, calculating their eco-costs, and comparing with other products.
We also wanted to add a goals section where packaging companies can set up their goals towards sustainability and calculate what it takes to achieve them. While the idea was great, we decided to set it aside for the MVP stage and focus only on the major function.
We used different low- and no-code tools and integrations to deliver faster results.
