Lapua Ballistics, how we did it
Based on mobile applications that Erkki Seikkula (Sales and Marketing manager/ Lapua) had seen, he asked us to develop a new ballistics application for Lapua. According to Erkki, “It has to be easy to use, and the best in the market, living up to the Lapua brand promise of a Passion for Precision.” We took the challenge.
First step was to analyse existing Lapua tools for ballistics and interview the Lapua team for basic requirements. We scanned the market for similar applications. The actual project began by setting up a project team with knowledge and expertise from Lapua R&D, theoretical ballistics calculations and field experience. Marketing, Brand knowledge, Project management, UI design, coding and mobile services were also incorporated.
Once the project started, it was evident that we managed to form a team with the right skills. Reviews and actions were dealt with professionally and promptly.
The project was running smoothly and we released close to 20 incremental SW releases. We later extended the Beta test team to comment and follow the progress and development.
Project was exceptionally challenging, with all the related mathematics and a number of highly advanced features. Despite of that we met all schedules and budget.
We are very pleased with end result of the project. The end product we created has the most advanced and accurate calculation methods in the market. Despite the complexity and sophistication of this program, we managed to create a simple user interface with versatile analysis possibilities.
The Lapua Ballistics application has been downloadable worldwide to Apple and Android devices since autumn 2016.

Frequently Asked Questions
I can’t login to VihtaVuori RELOAD
Error: ”Invalid email address”
Check your e-mail address
We discovered that sometimes the text editor in Android devices leaves additional space at the end of the email address. Especially if you type email address that you have already been using and select the “auto” routine to copy the email to editor.
So please check that there is no extra empty space at the end of your email address when you type that.
This issue has been fixed from version 1.26 onwards
