Built for Startups

Overview

 

Enkode is the pioneering software development agency for startups. Our mission is helping startups through the challenges of development in an ever-changing market. Innovation is a key to success but not all features are made equal. We prioritize product-market fit to ensure your product hits all trajectory goals without overdevelopment. Our core expertise lies in: startup consulting, R&D Centers, and web & mobile development.

 

What makes us different

“The biggest problems of this industry are startups begin without a good roadmap, they work with the cheaper unqualified teams, and make a lot of expensive mistakes. On the other side, there's also a lot of startups that invest in robust applications; but without proper guidance from the team or any user feedback, they later realize users don't need all of the offered functionality.” - Enkode CEO

 

We are neither of those teams, we strive to bridge the gap between entrepreneurial vision and developer execution. What makes Enkode different is that our experienced founders work diligently with developers, create detailed documents of direction, and offer the foresight needed in crucial situations.

Ethereum Wallet

The goal of this project was to create an ethereum wallet that is dependent on smart contracts used to store Ether. The premise of the application is allowing the user to freeze the money using the Ethereum smart contracts, until a certain date. Secondary, the user can specify a rule for the thawing of the frozen money such as releasing only one bit at a time. This creates a unique way for the user to manage his/her

cryptocurrency.

 

Technologies: .NET Core, JWT Token, Twilio

Financial Resource Management Platform

The idea of this application is to help financial institutions optimize their capital, balance sheet, and funding while maintaining a set of constraints. This was done by creating algorithms that would simulate a financial analyst creating different financial analysis reports, but automating it and displaying it through our unique, user friendly dashboard.

 

Technologies: React, PHP, AWS

Centrics Monitoring & Management

Our goal was to optimize the way people use smart home devices through through an integrated dashboard via web and mobile application. This dashboard allows you to monitor and control all of your smart devices, as well as set custom alarms, giving the user complete flexibility on the operations of the smart devices. A huge cost saver for regular home owners as well as property managers.

 

Technologies:

PHP, iOS, Android

Event Management Platform

An event management company asked us to create a unique and efficient event management platform out of their current disorganized system. Our initial goal was to create a system that allows all of the current system’s functionalities but reduce the number of screens, reduce the number of steps to use a certain functionality, and enhance the productivity of the employees using the system.

 

Technologies:

.NET Core Angular 4

Work Copenhagen

The premise of the application is to connect job seekers and employers in the local Denmark market through a user friendly mobile application (iOS & Android). Using a unique algorithm, the application matches job seekers to the most relevant and likely to hire employers. With the ability to chat directly with the job seekers, the application creates a seamless and instant way to communicate directly through the chat

feature.

 

Technologies: Angular JS, MongoDB, ASP.NET, Native iOS, SignalR

Hospital Administrative Dashboard

The idea of the application was to allow seamless management of hospital administrative tasks such as document signing, invoicing, appointment scheduling, communication, reporting, and much more. In most current day-to-day hospital administrative systems, there is a still a lot of manual involvement involved from hospital staff which creates an error-prone environment. Our creative thinking team, had to understand all of the

hospital’s current processes and mimic those processes through a user friendly web interface and later mobile interface as well.

 

Technologies: React Native .NET Core

 

Pureway

The Pureway client had a major problem with the UX of their previous store. After doing our UX analysis, we identified severe barriers to product purchase such as too many clicks to checkout, mobile responsive site not functional, and a confusing shopping experience in certain areas. Our main goal was to increase site conversions. We updated the UX & UI design of the store and made the store mobile responsive. This

significantly increased conversions as users can now shop easily on mobile as well had an easy path to purchase on the web. 

Hipstiks

The client wanted to move their e-commerce store from Woocommerce to Shopify due to ease of Shopify usability and not having to deal with updates constantly from Woocommerce. We faciliated the full content transfer of the store as well as reimplementing the custom UI. 

Earnest Eats

We developed a Shopify e-commerce store that sells unique breakfast food.
