PeerShip is a real-time social peer-to-peer delivery service which lets common people to request delivery or to list items they want to ship to someone else within the same city. This application helps people ship deliveries directly to one and another. Users offer the price they consider appropriate to accomplish the service. The service is available for the most popular mobile platforms, such as iOS and Android, aimed to allow both types of users, requesters, and carriers, to collaborate and ship items in an innovatively new way.
Our team has faced the challenge to find a technical solution for implementation of an innovative approach to a delivery service. The new business model should have helped people to solve their need on a social peer-to-peer basis.
Another technical challenge was to develop a databases architecture, an architecture of an API and the applications in the way to support simultaneously old and new versions without any impact on their functionality.
The client came to us with a third-party code. The first step was to hold an initial analysis, which had shown that there was a room for optimization. Our team has developed a project architecture from scratch. Thus, the code was fundamentally redeveloped in order to be scalable and maintainable.
A web application was developed for informing about the Peership and service promotion.
All aims were achieved and as an outcome, we have got a system with following key features:
- Location-based user experience;
- Automated payments system;
- Immediate payment for the delivery;
- Facebook integration;
- Ranking and feedback system;
- Family access to the application;
- Mobile push notifications.
a look inside the project
The mobile application was developed for IOS and Android platforms. It is currently available at App Store and Google Play accordingly.
our clients say
I do business with Artelogic team since 2009. We have developed multiple enterprise systems for various verticals. Some of those we sold for over million dollars. The workflow with them is much more stable and there are processes in place in order to ensure that everyone is doing what they’re supposed to do. Everything is being tracked.
The project launched successfully ahead of schedule in part thanks to clear project management. Key stakeholders volunteered positive feedback.
I have been working with the team at Artelogic for over 5 years now and can only say that they are the most professional, capable, reliable and friendly providers I have ever worked with, and I have worked with a lot. If Artelogic’s team doesn’t know how to do something, they’ll find out and come back with a functional solution.
When I was trying to do something that was perhaps not the best solution, rather than just implement it anyway, they Artelogic would say, '...We think this might work better.'
The main thing for working with me is I’m pretty intense on the communication side of things. They had a flexibility and willingness to adapt their processes to match my requirements both on communication and the development processes. I never had a problem with any of their code from a code quality perspective. They clearly do a good job internally with code quality assurance as well. We had very minimal issues during user acceptance testing. We never had a quality issue with them. Most importantly they took personal ownership of any problems which arose, including resolution of issues off hours or over weekends in order to mediate any issues that did happen.
Artelogic has been brilliant in the service delivery. I truly enjoyed the working experience. Many times, they were able to fix the issues with utmost professionalism and reliable speed. The communication on the specific work scope was great as they are able to value add by offering practical solutions or prompt to think about areas which are of blind sight.
Artelogic are getting involved and seeing the project as something that's important to them and looking at new ways to solve problems and put us forward.
