The Challenge

The Client was looking for a Software Development Organization that can understand their concept and develop the Mobile App, especially they wanted to fill the gap of Jewelry ecommerce in the GCC region with a solid ecommerce platform with a customized requirement and rules.

Trustworthy IT Partner

Our Client’s top-most concern was to have a trustful reliable IT partner having a long vision.

Industry Expertise

They were in a search of experts who have developed products with similar features and industry.

Technical Expertise

We’ve faced many technical challenges during the development, but the Vital Challenge for us was to design& develop the most complex module “Virtual Tryon”, which required augmented reality techniques on Human Face. So the challenge was to build a virtual Tryon for earrings to allow customers to try &buy seamlessly from the app without getting back and forth during purchase. Our client found us as a Perfect IT Partner to achieve their Goal. And thus the Journey has begun.

On-going Support & Maintenance

Our Client expected a software company who can provide continuous long-term development support for their product.

Project Scope

Perception System had conducted few discussion sessions with client to thoroughly understand the concept and expectations of their dream project. We did brainstorming and raised as many questions as we could to confirm our understanding and vision. We leveraged an iterative method to get feedback early and designed user-flow diagrams, sketches and wireframes before moving to high-fidelity design and prototypes.

The main scope of the Project was divided into the milestones as below:

Performing System Analysis

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.

Creating Project Plan

Based on our findings, we created flow diagrams for the entire workflow and plan the project development process by defining technical implementations.

Creating System Architecture

Perception System defined the entire Mobile App architecture with navigation, modules, and data interactions with backend system.

Creating 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.

Creating UI & Database Design

We’ve created the most user-friendly UI design for Mobile Apps. The “Virtual Tryon” design was the most complicated & challenging part. We’ve also created Database design

Creating User Stories & Test Cases

We’ve created User Stories & Test Cases of each functionality of the system, so that the system can be precisely developed and tested well.

Developing Web & Mobile Apps

We’ve developed entire system including Web Admin Panel, Store Panel & Shipping Agency Panel, Web services/APIs & Mobile Apps (iOS & Android) with “Virtual Tryon”

Performing QA/QC

So till the time, we’ve been providing all kind support that requires maintaining the system for the live users that includes fixing issues and developing new features based on client’s request.

The entire application is architected on AWS by our certified AWS solutions architects with EC2, RDS, SNS, SQS and S3 bucket.
