Client's Vision: Simplifying the Rental Process Across Markets
Rentd's ambition was to create an all-encompassing rental platform that covered every aspect of the rental process. This included finding properties, scheduling viewings, negotiating offers, signing contracts, and finalizing move-in details, all facilitated through their innovative app.
Challenges: Expanding and Enhancing the Platform
Initially, Rentd operated with only an iOS app and an outdated Admin Panel. The challenge was to expand the product to include a Web App and an Android App, customize it for the Dubai market, and automate the entire rental process. A key issue was improving the property search functionality, which was slow and inaccurate in the existing setup.
Our Strategy: Building a Full-Spectrum Rental Solution
We focused on developing a multi-platform solution that would not only cater to diverse markets but also automate and streamline the entire rental process. This involved careful planning to balance time-to-market with the robustness and scalability of the product.
Solution Development: Multi-Platform Integration and Architectural Revamp
1. Technology and Tools:
- NextJS was chosen for the Web App for its exceptional performance.
- React Native enabled cross-platform development for Android and an enhanced iOS app.
- The Admin Panel was rebuilt using NextJS, creating a unified technology stack with React and TypeScript.
- Optimizing the business logic and deploying it using Cloud Run for serverless container management.
- Implementing Elasticsearch for an advanced property search experience.
- A Python-based image service was developed for dynamic image resizing, improving load times.
Value Delivered: A Fully Automated and Scalable Rental Platform
Rentd has transformed into a fully automated platform, facilitating every step of the rental journey. This comprehensive solution, available on Web, iOS, and Android, is scalable, robust, and uses the latest technology to enhance user experience. Rentd now enables effortless market expansion with minimal development effort.
These are not just a group of guys that can pump out code, they really know business and provide you with the expertise you need to take your startup to the next level, as a non-technical founder this was key.
