Context

Our Customer is a startup company located in Boston, MA. The Customer came up with a business idea – they wanted to create a mobile app that would act as a third-party VIP service provider between food businesses and their customers. Thus, individuals who are in a rush ‒ or just mind the value of their time ‒ could jump the queue or enter a VIP line by paying a fee from their virtual wallets.

To make this digital business idea work, the customer needed a mobile app development partner experienced in cross-platform development, and they chose Iflexion. Our goal was to create a queue application for iOS and Android devices that would allow visitors of restaurants, cafes, or any other food businesses to get their orders without waiting in a queue.

Solution

As a company with a solid background in mobile app development, Iflexion covered all aspects of the solution delivery, from requirements clarification and documentation through technology consulting, user interface and logo design to actual development and testing of the Move It app and its web admin panel.

Development Process

Project delivery highlights:

  • Having analyzed the application’s functionality scope, usage of device-specific features and UI requirements along with time and budget constraints, Iflexion proposed using Xamarin platform (namely, Xamarin.Forms) to take advantage of common user interface code and shared C# codebase for iPhone and Android devices.
  • The Customer received all-around assistance with navigating App Store and Google Play for app submission and post-submission specifics.
  • The startup-oriented contracting model provided for flexibility adapting to the ongoing evolution of the requirements scope as the customer enhanced and modified their business vision according to the feedback received from end users of the line-jumping app.

Technologies

Iflexion’s mobile app development services involved implementation of the following functionality:

Feature	Implementation Browsing available vendors and vendor pages. Move It customers can also refer prospective vendors to the admin.

Results
