Campus Pro

CampusPro is a startup company connecting student freelancers with peer consumers. They came to us to design and build their MVP application. CampusPro was looking for a cost-effective way to build a native mobile application they could launch to a pilot group at SUNY Albany.

The main goal of our discovery phase was to define the application requirements and narrow the scope for the MVP. This included user interviews, a competitive analysis of the marketplace and technical research. The technical research helped define the application architecture and approach for external integrations, including the scheduling API and payment provider API. We worked with our client to make sure the requirements matched his business model and budget.

During the design phase, we created a brand identity for CampusPro to carry through the application. This included a color palette, logo, typography, style guide and application assets. We went through multiple iterations of low-fidelity wireframes addressing every user scenario. And finally created high fidelity mockups and an interactive prototype.

The native mobile application was built with NativeScript and Angular on the front-end. NativeScript is a framework that allows developers to build native, cross-platform mobile apps in JavaScript, reducing the time and cost associated with building separate native applications for web, iOS and Android. For the MVP, we focused on releasing an iOS app, although at least 70% of the android code was built out by using the NativeScript framework. The backend was built in Node.js using the Sails.js framework for API development. We integrated with Timekit API for scheduling and with Stripe Marketplace for secure payment processing. The application was published and approved in the App store in March, 2018.

Our solution is a marketplace for college student professionals to sell their services on campus. Students were able to create a portfolio of their services online and then schedule appointments and receive payments. The application was approved in the App store and CampusPro was able to launch a beta test during spring semester 2018 at UAlbany.
