Developing a complex application like Craving Coalitions can be a challenging task. The system will require integrating various technologies, such as payment gateways, membership management systems, QR code generation, and more. Ensuring that all these technologies work seamlessly can be challenging.
The success of the application depends on how well it is adopted by vendors and customers. Getting vendors to sign up for the application can be a challenge initially, especially if they are not familiar with the technology. Customers may also be reluctant to use the application if they are not comfortable with the payment methods or redemption process.
There are several similar applications in the market that offer membership plans and discounts to customers. Craving Coalitions will need to have a competitive pricing strategy and offer unique features to attract vendors and customers.
The application will need to ensure the security of customer data and payment information. This includes implementing secure payment gateways, data encryption, and protecting against cyber-attacks.
As the application gains popularity, it will need to be scalable to accommodate an increasing number of users. This includes optimising the system architecture and infrastructure to handle a large volume of traffic and data.
Craving Coalitions Development Phases:
UI (User Interface):
Our team at Assort Tech has developed a brand-new user interface, with a focus on streamlining the mobile experience. Our specialists, who specialise in responsive design, have ensured that the visual aesthetic of the user interface is consistent with the client’s vision and fully retained.
Our development team utilised a variety of appropriate technologies, including Flutter, .Net, and Dart, to create the platform within a seven-month timeframe. Throughout the development process, we prioritised cross-platform capabilities to optimise the user experience for all users. This involved rebuilding the Android and iOS apps from scratch, as well as creating a new app version that followed best practices and patterns for software development.
Our team also performed integrations with Stripe for payment transactions, and FCM to enable notifications. We handled all critical business logic and application integrations, including the interaction between the backend and frontend. In addition, our DevOps specialists introduced the AWS Services platform to provide back-office services.
We utilised the .NET framework to create an admin panel with integrated functions for our mobile application. Our web app admin panel allows administrators to manage users and access a variety of features. The admin panel is divided into several different areas, including content management, package management, payment management, and user administration sections.
QA & Testing:
The Craving Coalitions application has developed with top priorities in mind: security, functionality, usability, compatibility, and performance. Security measures are implemented and the application is tested for vulnerabilities to protect user data and privacy. Extensive testing is also conducted to ensure that all features work as intended and that any bugs or glitches are promptly identified and fixed. Usability is tested to make the application user-friendly and easy to navigate. Compatibility is also ensured by testing on different devices and platforms, while performance is evaluated to provide a smooth user experience.
Following appropriate verification and data management, the application was then launched on both the App Store and Play Store.
