Looking for App Developers for iOS & Android


#1

Hi estimote - community,

we are looking for Developers which will work on the following project we are planning.

We are working on a project with an App that incorporates also the iBeacon technology and we would like to know if you could help with the development.

The app we want to develop will incorporate many functionalities other apps use with iBeacons but here it will included all in one. So users and companies dont need to have many different apps but just one.

The App should

  • support iBeacons (see roverlabs.co and bleesk.com)
  • Companies can subscribe (paid) and create a profile and in the back end they can set up their account, their campaigns, their geofence (iBeacons) in the actual stores and have the analytics of the usage
  • Advertising ability for companies. Set up campaigns, ads, budget etc.
  • Professional users can set up their eshop within the app or import the products via an xml feed.
  • Users can shop from all shops and their order will be put in ones hopping basket. Only one payment process.
  • Users can leave their credit card details and pay directly from with in the app without having to input them all the time
  • When being in a restaurant the user can order directly from the app and also pay directly the bill. Leave reviews. The restaurant can have customer infos such as when he visited last time, what he likes to order etc. (see wisely.com)
  • At hotels the user can get welcome messages when entering the room, users can through the app communicate with reception or room service and order something to eat or drink etc.
  • In shops the loyality card can be included in the app. Without needing to have the actual card with him all the time. (see shopkick.com). Payment at the desk via the app.
  • Users can use the app for free but need to sign up. Sign up also via Twitter / Facebook / Gmail
  • have social network capabilities
  • create profile
  • post comments, pictures, videos
  • interact with friends

Can you help us with this project? Then send us a message!

We are open for any suggestions.

Hi again Nikolaos,

Thanks for your interest, it’s appreciated.

You are right, this is the common way for such huge projects to start development from building an MVP (Minimum Viable Product).

We are located at West Siberia, Tomsk, Russia. Our company taking a part at an international group of companies named Space-O (which also includes the Indian company Space-O Infoweb Pvt), but with the Indians colleagues we work only in terms of sales and marketing - in these fields they are stronger than us. In the same time, we have a purely Russian development and delivery with correspondingly High quality.

Kindly check your available timeframes according to our time zones here: http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/?qm=1&lid=1489425,13&h=1489425&date=2016-1-15&sln=14-17

I have worked with several different types of ibeacons such as Estimote, Gimbal, Kontakt.io, Chinese ibeacons. I have developed following categories of applications that involves ibeacon detection as the key functionality:

  • ibeacon detection for restaurant application to push the various offers.

  3. Location capturing
  4. Google or Apple Map integration to display location on map
  5. Ability to write generic beacon detection module that detects all types of beacons.
  6. Beacon detection in background mode
  7. Trigger notifications and actions as defined for the detection.

I also have good knowledge of asynchronous programming, background tasks, NSThread, caching, HTTP and socket connection network programming, image processing, push notifications, in app purchase, human interface guidelines for iOS/Android apps and app store publication.

Hello Nikos,

Pleasure to meet you here. I am Kirtan Thaker, Co-founder at Whitelotus Corporation a mobile app development company. We specialize in iBeacon app development. We have some great experience.

The good news is that we have developed a similar concept to what you are looking to get developed. Please look into www.tag2m.com. This concept is for the retailers and they can create campaigns about their offerings, run ads etc.

TAG is a project from US based client which we have successfully completed and live. The portal will be used by the retailers which they can subscribe to annual or monthly packages. Thereafter they will be provided with the dashboard from where they can create campaigns and associate respective beacons to these campaigns.

The apps will be used by normal users like us. Whenever a user visits this retail outlet where beacon are placed, they will start receiving offers from the beacons in that store.

The best things is it works in background. If the app is just installed, you will still get the notifications.

We can talk more about this when we meet online.

Please add me to skype: whitelotuscorp
Email: kirtan@whitelotuscorporation.com

Thanks,

Kirtan Thaker

Hello Nikos, I went down to the job post and found it exactly in terms of my interest as we have recently finished a similar application which is live in Play/App store, the application is having the same concept like there will be users who are using the application and the store owners are using the web dashboard with almost all the features that you are looking for, like the users can find nearby stores, can get notifications via Ibeacons installed at the stores, can purchase for the store and on the other hand the store owners can configure iBeacons, can get daily reports for the different sections of the stores, can get users data etc.

Please do have a look at the below link and review it so that you can have an idea

abvout our expertise:
Hoop App:


https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hoopapp-loyalty/id1287914039?mt=8

I do have following queries based on your description:

  1. Users can shop from all shops and their order will be put in ones hopping basket. Only one payment process.

Query: The user will shop from the store or from the app, if from the store then how the user will get the purchase details in the app?

  1. Users can leave their credit card details and pay directly from within the app without having to input them all the time

Query: Which payment method are you planning to implement in this, as per my suggestions the PayPal/Stripe would be best.

  1. When being in a restaurant the user can order directly from the app and also pay directly the bill. Leave reviews. The restaurant can have customer infos such as when he visited last time, what he likes to order etc. (see wisely.com 3)

Query: How will the restuarent admin will get the location of the user or we can say identity, for this we can implement iBeacons on the table so that the admin can differentiate the orders based on the table IDs.

How are you planning to manage the store side interface, will there be any application or desktop dashboard app for them to signup and login or you will be creating their accounts using super admin panel?

  1. interact with friends

Query: Will there be any social media application kind of scenario like the user can find the nearby friends and can send them connection request?

Will the users be able to chat with each other?

Do you need AI implementation as well to suggest nearby best stores/restaurants/friends etc?

Please let me know when can we connect over a call to discuss it more details, I am in IST timezone and would be available as per your comfort.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind Wishes,
