Skoon

Maritime Web Application Mobile Application
The client
In 2018, Lizard Global partnered with Skoon, an innovative startup driven by a team of skilled land-based and maritime experts deeply committed to sustainability. Skoon's fervor for renewable energy and its potential to reduce CO2 emissions in both on- and off-shore markets laid the foundation for our collaboration. Our journey with Skoon began when they were just established and had received some seed funding, a humble start that fueled the collaborative spirit for the groundbreaking work that followed.
The challenge
At the onset, Skoon faced the challenge of addressing energy supply fluctuations in the maritime industry. Recognizing the crucial role of energy storage, they sought to decentralize energy supplies. Lizard Global stepped in to assist with the development and delivery of the Skoonbox, a sustainable solution for both maritime and land-based energy needs.
Our solution

Working hand-in-hand, Lizard Global and Skoon conceptualized and built the Skoon Cloud, an innovative software solution. This platform automated logistics, enabled real-time battery monitoring, and facilitated data tracking. Despite facing budget constraints, Lizard Global leveraged Skoon's limited resources to develop a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). This strategic approach not only showcased our commitment to efficiency but also proved instrumental in Skoon's journey.

The user-friendly desktop and mobile applications of the Skoon Cloud provided a secure space for processing, analyzing, and storing data. The Skoon Cloud emerged as a tool for clean data visualizations and seamless communication between energy storage owners and users, fostering large-scale deployment of mobile and clean energy.

We assisted them in creating a user-friendly desktop and mobile platform for managing the Skoonbox. Our focus on efficiency and sustainability aligned perfectly with Skoon's mission, contributing to the long-term success of the Skoon Cloud application. Through successive phases, this progress not only reinforced the robustness of the Skoon Cloud but also played a pivotal role in securing yet another investment round for Skoon.
The Mobile Experience
In the mobile design process, Lizard Global prioritized a user-centric approach. The Skoon Cloud application, developed in 2019, allowed users to seamlessly access its features without a steep learning curve. After a quick registration and login, users could instantly search for available batteries or list their own, streamlining the mobile experience.
Sustainability and Efficiency
The collaboration between Skoon and Lizard Global not only aimed at reducing CO2 emissions but also revolutionized logistics and communication in the energy storage domain. The Skoonbox and Skoon Cloud platforms created a swift and transparent system, bridging the gap between battery container owners and renters. This efficient solution, rooted in Skoon's expertise in both land-based and maritime markets, paved the way for an environmentally friendly and on-demand energy supply.
