The outset of the project and first challenges
The story of the current project dates back to the COVID lockdown back in 2020. Local interactions became a great challenge. The project initially started as a mobile application that aimed to connect neighbors, enabling them to keep in touch with the local community, build up a friendly and safe local environment, and stay up to date with all the local news and events. The initial version allowed users to share videos, chat, use maps to find neighbors and local businesses as well as subscribe to other users.
Reshaping the idea
Our client had an idea to turn the existing app into a handy and accessible instrument for small local businesses by supporting them and helping them grow and develop. On the other side, locals would have better access to local shopping, goods, and services as well as receive personalized recommendations, participate in promotions, get special offers and discounts. The application could even help you land a job nearby as you may apply to local job postings.
The launch of the development process
Thus having clarified all the individual business needs and project objectives with the client, we have launched the process. The team was inspired to do their best in terms of solutions, project planning, and new features implementation.
