Examples of Excellence

We’ve helped over 100 businesses enhance their potential. These are some of the projects our custom business app company has helped launch.

Schoolinks

App & Software

Overview

Our custom business software development company gathered an initial list of requirements and key features that were based on research and interviews conducted with schools, students and educational professionals to ensure that the users would have access to the tools they needed from the start. From there, we designed the user interface and user experience, and then developed the application from scratch. As the number of users increased, so did their needs — we continued to ship new features and tools for some time after launch.

SchooLinks is a web app that connects international students with thousands of potential schools.

Hangurs, LLC

App

Overview

With an initial list of requirements in hand, we designed Hangurs’ logo, brand style guide, the user interface and user experience. The team at our custom business app development company worked with Hangurs’ users to get their honest feedback at each stage, allowing us to identify the essential features. We then developed this new mobile application from scratch and kicked off development using NativeScript and integrated several APIs. As users increased, we continued to scale the app after launch.

Hangurs sought to launch a first-of-its-kind app: a community-driven luxury fashion rental marketplace.

Dumpling contacted us to help them develop their custom application using MEAN stack. We first came up with all of the UI/UX designs. We developed the front end using bootstrap for mobile and desktop devices. The back end leveraged Google and Yelp’s APIs to fetch data for the business owners.

AdventureZilla

Website

Overview

AdventureZilla helps travelers seek adventure for an incredible price, offering deals of up to 90% off that are sent directly to users.
During the discovery phase, we learned about the company’s target market. Insights about those users were translated into low-fidelity mockups. Using AdventureZilla’s logo as a foundation and employing a minimalistic design, we then developed high-fidelity versions of the website. Finally, we built the front end and then the back end of their website.
