Tech Stack

Tech

We are listening to our customers and thrive to cover all open questions and demystify software development processes and technologies behind it. Enjoy exploring some of the topics in our blog categories below.

Native Development Android (Java), iOS (Swift)

Back-end

Native App Development is the creation of software programs that run on specific devices and platforms. You can build beautiful native apps for target devices-smartphones.

Back-end framework, Logic, Server

Back-end

In the back-end, Core PHP was used. Core PHP is a simple, bare-bones PHP programming language. Getting it up and running is easy, and it does not need additional libraries to run. A MySQL database was used. It provides a well-defined storage-engine framework that enables administrators to configure the MySQL database server for flawless performance. Backend logic and APIs were developed to call the data of scheduling a ride, pickup, and drop-off locations, Google maps APIs, GPS tracking, licenses, insurance documents, payment information, and GPS tracking, as well as requests from nearby locations, and data from the server-to-client interface.

Stripe payment gateway

Social

The stripe has an API that can handle complex payment flow. We integrated the stripe payment for automatic authentication handling, no double charges or idempotency key issues. Strong customer's security and privacy are guaranteed with our secure API that handles complex transactions in a professional way!

Google maps

Social

With Google Maps APIs integrations, we have been able to provide our clients with real-time location extracts and show them where they're going in addition to showing the origin or destination. This is all done through an easy map interface that you can view on any device!

Google place API

Social

The Google Places APIs make it easy to get accurate and reliable information about a place. The integration of this API with the Geolocalization system gives us real-time tracking through GPS, as well as an autocomplete function that makes reaching your destination easier than ever before!

Social logins

Social

With the help of social login APIs, signing up has become easy and frictionless. The API returns relevant authority to allow users access app functionality without any hassle! We integrated Facebook logins so that users can seamlessly enjoy all the services with ease.

Firebase push notification

Social

Firebase cloud messaging is a simple solution for notifying the user base of important events and updates. To accomplish this, we integrate firebase push notifications into our product as well so that users know when something has changed or new content is available in Kix Ride App!

FSCalendar Pod

Social

FSCalendar Pod is a fully customizable and open-source iOS calendar library, compatible with Objective-C and Swift. We have used this 3rd party calendar library as It supports horizontal, portrait sliding mode, and other functions.

Admin panel

Social

We developed an admin panel for the Kix Ride App that allows admins to view and edit real-time data, get insight into the information collected about their riders as well as to detect any bugs in the system. Admins can export documents for invoicing purposes; plus graphs give them a more detailed overview across different periods like monthly cost per mile traveled and solve the users quarries.

How Vitec helped in Achieving Client goal?

Client goal

We discussed the vision and purpose of the Kix Ride idea with our partner. During the meeting, we discussed the primary goal and the problem that Kix Ride idea can solve. We learn about market trends and challenges faced by our target audience. As we analyzed each concept, we developed the two solutions through various conceptual and technical enhancements, such as adding the live location tracking view to the parents as well as the driver. To fulfill the vision of the app, we worked with our partner to develop documentation and a wireframe.

services category

Through the collaboration with our partners, we tested both app designs with a test user and then created a high fidelity mock-up with Figma to test the user flows and interaction between the components. Our final step is to release both app designs based on the MVP approach. After the developers had executed all modules and layers, we focused on queries related to the application flow. With our partners, we discussed Middleware that must allow applications to communicate across different modules. Our focus was on removing software errors and delivering authenticated data to end-users.

services category

MVVM architecture was used to build both apps. The goal was to develop a native code architecture that is easy to maintain and is able to intelligently accommodate all user flows without major customizations. We showed our partner how the splash screen was designed and how the principle 'less is more' was expressed even more clearly and concisely. We have created a layer between the server, the cache, and the user interfaces, and this layer is used to provide application-to-application communication and data exchange.

services category

In order to ensure both apps are ready for release, the process of app development includes the testing of both apps by our QA team. We have created performance test scenarios and automated critical test cases for strategy style maintenance and batch execution of automation scripts for both applications. With end-to-end functional testing, we ensured software quality is achieved and successfully tested both solutions from beginning to end. It’s time to deploy helpful solutions globally.

services category

Despite strict policies for submitting apps to the App Store and Play Store, we successfully published our app using our expertise on our first try. We are serving 360° IT support by providing complete software monitoring, bug fixing, consulting, ideation, feature enhancement, and customer service.

Biggest challenge

Biggest challenge and our journey of overcoming

Biggest challenge

We have faced challenges while choosing the best payment gateway for Kix Ride App. A secure and authenticated payment gateway is not as easy to obtain as one might feel. So, It was essential to include all the necessary aspects in mind while working on securing the Kix Ride App for the customers.

To overcome the challenge; our development team worked on different APIs to ensure that the stripe payment gateway is safe for both types of users - Parents & Drivers. We used highly secure APIs to ensure that encryption is safe for all users for the app development.

Another challenge we had faced was to structure the application flow. An application had to be extremely well designed and structured as it has two different sets of users. Also, it had to be fast and smooth.

After frequent meetings with the client and development team, we were able to make a perfect flow for both types of users. As a result, we had developed one app for Kix Ride users, and another for Kix Ride drivers. Also, we gave the admin all the necessary features and functionalities to easily operate and manage the application from the back end.

Most special moment in our journey

journey

The most special step was testing the application.

While the development of Kix Ride, we had a good collaboration with the client. The application was tested live to ensure all the features and functionalities are working properly and to check whether or not it had a good performance. After a live test, the client used to give us feedback from users, and drivers then we had analyzed it and fixed it If anything needed to be updated.

As well, it was very special to make the application functions as easy as possible. Users can share their rides with other Kix users to track them. This was an interesting experience that taught us a lot.

The implementation of all functions as well as the extended testing and simulation of the processes was very instructive and valuable for us and all further projects.

We supported our client through every stage of the Kix Ride project - from ideation to launching the platform. Our team was very grateful for the opportunity to support small businesses and create this online platform where people can connect with experts in the beauty industry and root for their favorite gems. We'd like to hear your thoughts.
