In association with Cavepot, we created an innovative concept of organization and monitoring of students travel groups.

The app main purpose is to keep track of each student, check them in or out on each activity and get their medical information by easily scanning their rfid bracelet.

In addition to that, we delivered a web back office to configure students information, travel

groups, activities, and more.

 

Also, students’ parents got another app with the ability of watching travel photos, activities information, comment them and feel like their are sharing the trip with their children.

My Pass

MyPass app provides customer-friendly UX, which lets customers purchase and manage their event and night club tickets, drinks and VIP in one place; moreover, the back-office app lets event staff manage their tasks effortlessly and easily. The aim was to create an intuitive and user-friendly app that integrates a payment gateway and check-in by a QR code.

We followed an UI/UX design process which began

with definition of user journeys by creating wireframes, then built high-fidelity mockups to bring them to life and, finally, delivered an interactive prototype on InVision and UI source code.

 

As a result, the app increases customers loyalty and also simplifies the routine of event staff.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My name is Analia Escalada, I’m the founder of Lookea, a startup launched in March, 2019. The company’s main goal is to connect brands, influencers and customers in order to improve the online shopping experience. We do so by providing our users with a platform where they can share their outlooks and tag brands, creating a buzz that boosts the aforementioned brands’ online traffic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Horus?

Lookae is a fashion startup and since its foundation over a year ago, we've been working on the implementation of an effective business model. We’ve also been focusing on the platform’s design. I contacted Hours for the app’s front and back end development. Our team was just getting started with the software design and development when we decided to welcome Horus to the team.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to build an intuitive platform that was easy to use and provided an optimal online shopping experience. It was essential for us to first create an MVP in order to validate if there were users interested in sharing their looks, brands motivated to get onboard and clients willing to get inspired and shop using the platform.

Also, we wanted to validate our business model, especially regarding the revenue strategy--our goal was to understand how much fashion brands would be willing to invest to take part in our solution.

SOLUTION

How did you select Horus?

With our first investment round we assembled a team to develop the app. However, due to the pandemic we faced some delays on the development, which led me to look for new developers. That’s how I reached out to Horus, that soon brought together a dedicated team that not only moved forward with the app’s development, but also provided us with technical and moral support.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we selected them as our development partner, we had a series of discovery meetings to discuss our goals and expectations. We dedicated the project’s first weeks to study the business model and define our revenue strategy. Little by little we evolved the initial idea and finally set a revenue model that suited the brands we envisioned working with.

At the same time, we worked on the mobile app design, validating each idea on the go. Nowadays we’re in the MVP definition phase and soon we expect to validate it in the market.

What was the team composition?

Initially, we were assigned a project manager to support us and serve as the main point of contact throughout the project. Soon, when we decided to get the design started in order to validate it with our clients as soon as possible, a UI/UX designer joined the team. We’ve been working with this designer since then, in sync with the rest of our team and always prioritizing our clients requirements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The prototype was built from scratch in one month. As soon as we presented it to the brands, all of them showed interest and asked us when it would be launched and how much they could invest in it. It was a very positive feedback and these brands are now waiting for more information. Our goal now is to develop the MVP in order to get more insights from the market.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Since our first touchpoint I felt I was relying on a team that was willing to find the best solutions to all of the limitations we’ve faced. Some of our meetings were scheduled beforehand, as frequent checkpoints, but we also got together anytime we felt the need to discuss something.

On the other hand, the design process was iterative and followed our clients’ requirements in order to find the best version of our product.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was blown away by this partner's knowledge of mobile app development, user experience, and optimization. We learned much more than we thought possible, and we appreciated their patience and thoughtfulness while we came up to speed. The team met every single expectation I had. They are committed professionals, totally dedicated to the project and eager to suggest improvements for its success.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The work they delivered is excpetional. Even though I had budget constraints, we found the best way to keep working together since we make such a good team

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Horus?

Any project we come across that needs mobile development is forwarder to Hours. We strongly believe in collaboration between both companies, we know how they work and the excellent products they always deliver.

What were your goals for this project?

For this project we had to deliver two different applications on very specific and strict deadline. They had to be up and running on every marketplaces.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Two applications. The first one was an android application that integrated the RFID technology. And for the second one we had to create a social feed for Android and iOS.

Describe the project in detail.

This project was for a traveling agency that specializes in student traveling groups. We created an application that helped them monitor and organize all the students traveling within their groups. This application was created to cover two very important needs.

One was to keep track of the students and the activities they attend to and the other one was to have fast access to the student medical history. The bracelets are assigned to each student, with the information previously loaded in their profile. This way the can keep track of all the activities and the student attender and the ones they did not. Moreover, if the student is feeling under the weather or has been involved in any kind of accident, by reading their bracelet the doctor gets immediate access to the student’s medical information.

How does it work? The application keeps a list of students, their information and the groups they belong to. They can have the passengers information with only a bracelet scan! At the end of the day the leaders will know who went to the activities and who skipped them. Gathering all this information they will able to validate the performance of each day, and the trip.

On the other side, the parents fill in a form with sensitive medical and personal information that is saved in to the system. ( this information can only be seen by doctors if need be).

What was the team composition?

1 product owner 1 UX/UI designer 2 Xamarin developers 2 Full stack developers (node, angular, sql server)

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

This Year the company manage four travels already. Each one with 650 passengers with their medical history and activities. The social feed application gave their parents the ability to see how their children’s trip was going on, and the outcome of the activities that they were involved in.

The RFID application successfully gave the group leaders the availability to keep track of the students and the activities they attend to. It also gave to the doctors the availability to see a student medical history in case when it was necessary, by only reading the RFID.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We work as one team using scrum methodologies. We had daily meeting to see the progress every day, and stay on the same page. Once a week we had meetings with the client to discuss the progress and to make sure we were meeting every deadline and expectations. They help us to prioritize tasks to be sure that we were on time, including any changes or new needs.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They are passionate about their work and knowledgeable about mobile development. We didn't need to get involve in any aspect of mobile development because they did everything, and they did it extremely well. This gave as more time to work on other things.

Are there any areas for improvement?

What we think could be interesting, is for them to share some of their mobile knowledge . so if need be we could give them a hand.
