The idea behind the project

Five is a message-based mobile app, for experts & influencers. It provides users to purchase private 1-on-1 session for a consulting fee, without having to commit to a live Zoom call.

Simply put, people can purchase a few minutes of expert's time to ask questions or get advice without ever having to schedule or book a time on calendar.

Provided solution

  • Cross-platform app: we've reduced development costs, due to the use a cross-platform solution. This approach ensures consistent user experiences and reduces the need for separate development teams for each platform.
  • Deployment: the application is hosted and deployed using Digital Ocean's infrastructure, ensuring reliable and scalable deployment. Furthermore, a Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline has been configured, streamlining the deployment process. This automated pipeline minimizes manual errors and accelerates the release of new updates and features.
  • UI/UX: the app boasts a user-friendly and modern design, aimed at providing a visually appealing and intuitive experience for users. The user interface (UI) has been thoughtfully crafted to enhance usability and engagement, keeping up with the latest design trends to create an enjoyable interaction.
  • Strict Quality Control through QA Testing: the app has undergone rigorous quality assurance (QA) testing to ensure that it meets high standards of functionality and performance.
  • Integrations: the app integrates seamlessly with third-party messaging services, enhancing its communication capabilities. This integration allows users to engage in real-time messaging and facilitates efficient and reliable communication within the app's ecosystem.
  • Back-end: the app's back-end is built upon the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture, utilizing Node.js as the primary programming language. This architecture promotes maintainability, scalability, and separation of concerns, enabling efficient development, testing, and maintenance of the server-side components.
  • Support team: after the first release, we assigned a dedicated team to develop new features

Overall, the Five app provides a comprehensive platform that fosters efficient communication between experts and users. It empowers experts to showcase their knowledge, connect with a broader audience, and monetize their expertise, while offering users a convenient and versatile way to access valuable insights and guidance.
