Examples of Excellence

We’ve helped over 100 entrepreneurs bring their vision to life and raise over $8 million in funding. These are some of those marketplace and software-focused projects that our SaaS and app design company has helped launch.

Schoolinks

Marketplace & SaaS

Overview

Our app design 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.

Hangurs, LLC

Marketplace

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 SaaS and app design 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 marketplace’s mobile application from scratch and kicked off development using NativeScript and integrated several APIs. As the number of users increased, so did Hangurs’ needs — we continued to ship new features and tools for some time after launch.

Overview

Dumpling allows budding entrepreneurs to run their own highly personal grocery delivery business from their phone. They sought to develop an application that would offer their users everything they need to manage, promote and grow their enterprise.

Dumpling contacted us to help them develop their 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 backend leveraged Google and Yelp’s APIs to fetch data for the business owners.

AdventureZilla

Marketplace

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 frontend and then the backend of their website.

Objective

Developed a travel website where users can find heavily discounted trips.
