Barsection is a platform which allows users to view the live crowd at a bar, check-in at the bar, notify their group/friends and even get notified for any special offers from the bar. At the same time, they wanted to give bars the control to claim their listing, add managers to manage their bar information and send notifications to users about special offers or events at their bar.
The challenge was that the client wanted the functionality wherein a video montage of memories could be created with different effects based on the pictures taken by users at the bar.
We went through the design multiple times with client and made sure all the elements were as agreed upon. We made all the final adjustments that were needed in design prior to moving on to development.
Initially, the use of Google Places API was considered. But then due to API limitations, it was decided to scrape all bar data and provide a solution where admin can upload that data from backend
The Discovery Phase- Our business analysts performed a lot of research and brainstorming before the app development process. At the end of the discovery phase the “Who, Why, What, When and Where” of the project were thoroughly scrutinized.
The Execution Phase- After gathering all the nuts and bolts to proceed, it was time for project execution. Our designers, developers and quality analysts followed agile development process for execution and worked side-by-side to achieve the project aims. Our project managers also did regular reviews to check the progress of the project went smoothly and according to the time.
Sprint Base Project Delivery-We took client’s feedback on each stage of development and applied the feedback in the project. It helped us to meet the client’s expectations in the best possible manner.
The Deployment Phase- Now, app was ready to be unleashed to the world after rigorous development & testing period. We deployed the app in the appstore.
This has been one of us excited projects we have worked on. Developing a platform for the young and dynamic bar-hopping demographic brought with it interesting design opportunities and doing so turned into a whole nice experience.
