Project overview

Catch-Up is a platform that aggregates products & events reviews from prestigious magazines and newspapers from all around the world. Users can have preferences, save favourites, receive updates and buy relevant content directly from the app.

The technical challenge consists in the acquisition of unstructured data streams and the relevance of results presented to the consumer.

BusyMachines is responsible for the complete software platform that automates the aggregation, classification & curation of unstructured data. We also implemented the consumer mobile app that integrates with the cloud platform for recommendations based on customer behaviour & preferences. BusyMachines designed and automated the entire cloud production infrastructure.

What we did

BusyMachines worked together with the Catch-Up founders to define the solution objectives & milestones. The development process follows a standard sprint based approach with demos every two weeks & almost daily feedback.
