Because both buyer and seller used the same app, just with different type of profiles, the challenge lied in separating the two roles, especially when it comes to the booking process. When you book a seller, the seller can cancel or reject the booking. Once accepted, both parties can further cancel the booking. Thus, the challenge was to get this flow working in a logical manner.
Signup with HomAid as either a buyer or seller. As a buyer you can book sellers to clean your home. As a seller you can make money.
Because we cannot force users to refresh the page, we implemented an auto-refresh feature each time the buyer or seller implemented an action that was related to booking. Now the whole booking process runs much logical and smoother.
Soon you can download HomAid in the Apple Store and Google Play. You’re welcome to experience the app as either role. You can always switch roles, or make two accounts if you want to be both a buyer and seller!
HomAid was planned and developed from scratch by imangu. The below methodologies were involved in developing this project over a course of 6 month.
A great experience working with the team developing HomAid app. I recommend imangu to anyone looking to develop any website or app for professional use.
