About Our Client and His Requirements

Based in Saudi Arabia, our client is a professional photographer and has worked with National Geographic as a photographer. Being a photographer for the past 8 years, he was facing problems in managing bookings, earning records, work portfolios, and packages for different events. With such problems, he was not able to respond to all the requests from customers.

Then, he realized that all the photographers across the world might be facing the same problems when it comes to managing bookings, earnings, work portfolio, and other things related to the photography business.

Realizing this problem, our client decided to develop one such online platform where photographers can manage everything from bookings to earnings, new requests to on-going bookings, portfolio, and packages.

To develop one such online platform, our client started looking for a mobile app development company that has experience in developing such a platform. While searching on Google, our client found our website and landed on our mobile app development page. In fact, he also reviewed our portfolio and was impressed by our work, so he contacted us and shared his requirements.

Solution We Provided to Our Client

When our sales representative studied and analyzed our client’s requirements, he instantly understood it because we, at Space-O Technologies, have already developed one such platform for photographers and customers to connect in real-time. So, our sales representative did not take much time to understand our client’s requirements.

As per his needs, our business team prepared a WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) document to give a structural view of the entire project. We suggest our client develop an on-demand solution, including the customer’s app, the photographer’s app and the backend website.

Using this on-demand photographer app, professional photographers and customers can get in touch and communicate pricing, dates, and other things to hire a photographer. Whether users own an Android phone or carrying an iPhone, this hire a photographer app works smoothly on both the platforms.

Some Small Challenges We Faced During Developing
This On-Demand Photographer App Solution

While developing photographers on-demand solution, our mobile app development team did not face any major issue because we have already developed one such on-demand photographer app solution, so our team knows what it requires to develop the best photographer app for customers and photographers.

Our assigned mobile app developers faced one small issue in managing instant payment mode in Payfort because it was the new mode of payment in Payfort. However, our team spent some time researching this gateway and in the end, our team solved this issue. Another small change that our team made during post live was Twilio OTP as it did not work well for Saudi numbers; therefore, our team changed it to Firebase OTP.
