An online jobs seekers marketplace, seeking odd jobs like painting, grocery shopping, lawn service,
etc. and for people looking to hire oddjobbers with necessary skills
Client wanted to build an easy to use job posting system, where an oddjobber can gain exposure to numerous people with short jobs in their area matching the skills. Client wanted to build an enclosed community local to the people living in a neighborhood aimed at improving the way people source projects in their local area. Client had a raw idea which we nurtured, matured and developed.
Functionality evolved around the basic architecture of the application. The project specifications were revised and revisited based on the targeted audience. The main challenge of the application was to keep users connected with each other and have trust amongst the niche community without having an online payment system involved.
Our user experience team and analysis team worked hand in hand to be able to document requirements and create Proof of concepts (POC) for the application. The application designs included branding of the application, wireframe structuring of the project and then the prototyping.
Solution and Execution
Dedicated Team Set up
We setup up a dedicated team managed by our project managers and account managers who ensured and enabled a quality product delivery.
Creating a seamless user experience with a web design that was highly user friendly, and optimizes the website to make it SEO friendly. We used third party integration for analytics, SMS Gateways and many more.
Application was built using MVC and Code Ignitor frameworks. The main & the only system for generating revenue from the website was the bidding process which was quite challenging to build as it had a different payment process flow local to the neighborhood.
Social Media Solutions
Project used Facebook API connections for registration and verification on the website.
