About the Client
Industry Beauty & Talent Acquisition
Handsome Inc, a startup in Austin – Texas, was looking to create an app for Beauty and barber professionals. A winner of SoGal pitch competition and a startup successfully raised 2.5M USD in the seed round in 2021.
Services we offered
Handsome approached Perception System and selected us by evaluating various aspects like our capability to deliver, technology competency and work passion. They wanted not just an app but a digital networking platform for beauty salon professionals.
Reliable IT Partner
Handsome’s top-most concern was to have a trustful reliable IT partner having a long vision.
They were in a search of experts who have develop products with similar features and industry.
They wanted a software company who can provide continuous long-term development support for their product.
The dedicated team at Perception System scheduled 3 video calls with Co-Founders (April Dominguez & Nikki Dominguez) & Interim CTO to thoroughly understand their feature plans & ideas.
Based on phone calls we created an Epic and then created sprint plan. In the first month we planned 4 weekly sprints. Perception System assigned a certified scrum master to implement agile mindset and agile methodology to build the startup.
We allocated our top Business Analysts to analyze the client’s requirements. In the beginning, the software development team has analyzed the concept of hypothetically. Afterward, we have closely inspected the entire process and defined user stories.
Based on our findings, we created flow diagrams for the entire workflow and plan the project development process by defining technical implementations.
Perception System defined the entire Mobile App architecture with navigation, modules, and data interactions with backend system which runs on Firebase.
Wireframe & Prototypes
After several attempts and meetings with the client-side team, our Mobile App designers have prepared wireframes and prototypes citing all possible workflow diagrams, navigation, and data flows.
We followed the Agile Scrum methodology to develop the app. We listed features as product backlogs and started working in an iterative & incremental delivery model.
We adopted test driven design and development approach to result a high-quality app as a final product.
We consulted and implemented the App in Micro-services & Event Driven Architecture on AWS Cloud. We produced a Micro feature every week for trial and expansion.
We built using the combination of iOS Swift, Node JS, Google Cloud Functions, AWS Lambda, SQS and Aurora RDS.
Support & Maintenance
We committed for long-term support and maintenance with a feasible plan sign up by the client creating a healthy development partnership.
