Placert adds “soft data” to a house listing by asking the owner and their social network to endorse or add features, share photos and videos, pinpoint interesting spots on an interactive map and share nice memories/anecdotes. It’s showing potential buyers the “soft side” of the house, data delivered by actual persons. Personal endorsements that turn a house into a home.
The main challenge of building the cross-platform mobile apps consisted in concentrating most of the video processing & related operations on the mobile / client side. Avoiding server side processing had the benefits of a much better / faster user experience and lower cloud operational costs.
BusyMachines is responsible for the complete development & release of the mobile apps that integrate with the cloud platform.
What we did
BusyMachines works together with the Placert product owners to define the solution objectives & milestones. The development process follows a standard sprint based approach with demos every two weeks & almost daily feedback.
BusyMachines’ people are inquisitive, make effective arrangements, and get the job done: what more would you want? The programmers and project managers are willing to roll up their sleeves. This is project number five: we’re in it for the long run!
