The client

The Firefighters Association of the State of New York (FASNY) has been dedicated to informing, educating and training the volunteer fire service since 1872.

Like the fire service sister- and brotherhood, FASNY membership comes with privileges designed to support those who dedicate their lives to this noble community service.

FASNY is the voice of 110,000 volunteer firefighters in New York State and on a national level. They lobby for legislation like presumptive cancer coverage for volunteers that protect the public and themselves.

FASNY strives to demonstrate influence in legislative issues and education, provide meaningful member benefits and be a strong voice representing an organization that’s over 150 years old.

The Approach

We were initially tasked with creating a mobile application for FASNY, and we had several months to finish it. But then, the timeframe was cut in half to synchronize the launch of the app with the 150th annual convention. That is when we realized we needed an experienced partner to help us.

In TowerHouse Studio, we found a partner that brought years of experience to the project. They took on development and started planning the project roadmap to hit the goal. We had daily standups, using video calls or sharing their status with me over slack (when I was unavailable). Then, every Friday, they presented a Demo showing the progress and explaining what was yet to do.

The Outcome

The application was done in less than 2 months! TowerHouse Studio was able to help us define the core functionalities that were needed in order to meet the proposed deadline, and with that FASNY was able to offer their app to their members just in time before the 150th annual convention.


Features

FASNY application was created with the latest technology, take a look at some of the frameworks and libraries we used.

Firebase Cloud Messaging

We used Firebase Cloud Messaging for in-app notifications that the admin can schedule by using an external admin

WordPress Plugins

We have created a custom WordPress plugin that allows the admin to schedule custom notifications to be sent at a specific time

Automated testing with Cypress

Part of why we could meet the deadline was because we reduced rework, and we did that by automating our test execution with the help of CyPress
