Rudo App Development Journey To Become The Best Beauty And Salon app In South Africa
Whether it is about finding and booking a last-minute hairstylist, makeup artist, or beautician, Rudo has brought it to the fingertips of people in South Africa. Rudo is a platform that connects users with third-party beauty care service providers and allows exploring new beauticians conveniently. Users can locate nearby service providers, read reviews, and book appointments to enjoy self-care treatment at home directly from the platform.
On the flip side, the platform offers opportunities for freelancers and small businesses in the beauty industry to reach more customers and expand their business. To make it even handier for their users and beauty service providers, Rudo had to offer a feature-rich and user-friendly mobile app. That’s where our expertise came in. The client wanted to make a Rudo mobile app for both Android and iOS device users so that they could reach a wider audience.
Techtic’s hand in Rudo’s app development
The goal of developing a Rudo mobile app was to increase the customer and beauty service provider base. Besides, our client wanted to enable the Rudo app to offer a personalized experience and make it easier to find good service providers in any given proximity. Also, the app was required to create a feature for secured online payment transactions for both end customers and service providers. At the same time, real-time notification and order tracking features were a must to make the app reliable.
After listening to the Rudo app requirements, our technology professionals brainstormed and brought a solution to the table, which convinced our client in a fraction of a second. Our proposed solution comprised cross-platform app development using React Native technology that enables building high-performing Android and iOS apps faster. We also suggested creating separate apps for end customers and service providers to render a personalized user experience, and our client liked the idea.
Then we went on to start the development, and the results are in front of you!
Apart from Customers and Service Providers, an Admin panel was necessary to develop, enabling the administrative executive to handle customers, service providers, payment transactions, orders, notifications, promotions, and other content delivery on the app.
During brainstorming over the project requirements, our team spotted some key problems that were necessary to solve in order to make the app more personalized and enable it to connect the customers with service providers available at their date and time. So that the client can increase their user base of customers and third-party beauty service providers. For example,
- Different user-friendly apps for customers and service providers;
- Real-time notification for real-time updates;
- Detecting the customer location to showcase services available in their proximity;
- Straightforward appointment booking with quick confirmation;
- In-app checkout process to replace the hassle of cash payment;
- Marketing automation tools for an admin.
The app was supposed to be available on both Android and iOS platforms with engaging yet intuitive user interfaces to offer a personalized user experience for both customers as well as beauty service providers.
After hearing our client out, the experts at Techtic came up with a fertile concept of building a cross-functional platform using React Native for Android and iOS that would accelerate app development. As the app was required to be user-friendly, interactive, and personalized for its users, React Native functionality could help accomplish all the functionality while ensuring high performance.
Since we have qualified React Native developers with hands-on experience, our team quickly started executing the project requirements one by one. And we could deliver the project as the client envisioned with a quick turnaround time.
With the right technology stack, we built the app that quickly connects customers with nearby, reliable beauty service providers and brings the beauty world to customers’ fingertips. Because of the personalization and easily accessible features, the app soon became popular, and the app user base started to increase significantly. The app is live and kicking on the Apple Store as well as Google Play.
