02 challenges

we’re faced with

The platform has been in development for almost a year. MVP version of the system was released after 6 months of development, featuring basic design and integration with Google Maps. Even at this point, the system included complex modules for data gathering and reporting.

The main challenge was to organize data collection from hundreds various data providers with totally different APIs (and in some cases, even without it). Another challenge was to improve existing codebase so that the system can operate better under high loads.

After MVP release the team proceeded with development of V2 of the system, which features:

  • 01
    Brand new design

    Major user flow update
