The client wanted to create a unique food ordering software solution to help customers order their desired recipes and receive at their scheduled time.

Services we offered

The Challenge

The client was searching a solution partner, who can deliver something like a standard a social media features. Client was from a technical background so he wanted to select a partner who can deliver using AWS Server-less, React & Python. Perception System being an AWS consulting partner was proved to be an ideal app development company for their requirement.

We have taken a bit different approaches for evaluating the requirements. We gave a distinct questionnaire for this project to understand the persona in the user research stage. We have run a survey and segregate various relevant features and ask the client to select the most appropriate ones. Our team then took the design thinking approach to serve the user research for the web application.


The client wants to provide a central place for Lugelo users to share their experiences with the brand or personal experiences using storytelling techniques in a storybook.

A story can contain multiple moments to it with an image, video, text, document or an audio.

A user can invite his friends to contribute on this story. Eg. a company’s employee is making story of picnic days with friends so he invites his colleagues to add their words & media in different moment.


Due to the innovative and challenging idea, the client was looking for a competitive and competing solution provider in the market. The client wants to facilitate food lovers to present own recipes of food items and receive the food as per own schedule or meal planning. The client has put a stamp of choice on Perception System considering the fittest choice for his software development company search.

Project Scope

We analyzed the client’s requirements precisely. Afterward, we have broken down the system accordingly. We have implemented the Work Breakdown Structure methodology. WBS proves the best to address the main needs of all stakeholders involved.

We have selected the Magento ecommerce platform to do extensive customization in order to meet the bespoke requirements of the client.


We have created a project plan according to WBS modules and defined milestones as well as deliverables accordingly.


The major challenge in the web development project was to create and manage ‘Custom Meal Plan’ module. It is because it was a combination of various recipes to create items (Sub-modules). These customized items again assemble and turn into the Custom Meal (Main module).


We have faced technical and logical challenges in the creation of features, such as “Chinese recipe bundle options” & “Language-specific recipe cards & videos.”


We implemented below functionalities:

The user can create a healthy meal plan for herself & her family.

The user can get the products from our Michelin star restaurant suppliers and organic food specialists.
