To check the feasibility of the concept, as a part of development we conducted a survey of 106 users and the survey results said:

There are 6200+books available for barter exchange in the IIM itself right now!
Commercial value of those books are 18+ lakhs!

"No task is too small! This project was a dream of mine and I couldn’t have brought it to life without Space-O‘s assistance. This is the fourth app that we have created together and each one has been a great success. Anytime I have a problem, they are always right there on top of it to provide the best solution. I have already turned a profit on the first app we have created which stands as the #1 education app in its class. I can’t say enough as to how thankful I am to stumble across them. I will definitely come back for more projects as soon as another golden idea pops up. ? Thanks again Space-O!"Michael Cameron
