Welcome To Good Guys Home Service

An On-Demand Service Marketplace App

Good guys is an on-demand home service app platform that allows users to instantly connect with skilled technicians providing home services
nearby them such as plumbing, electrical repair, home cleaning, carpentry, laundry, beauty, fitness, drivers, painting and other handyman gigs
with real-time scheduling features. The app is driven by robust advanced technologies and changing customer requirements and expectations
which also means the app can appropriately balance trade-offs in standardization/customization.

The Need

Customer expectations hooked with the stance of immediacy, convenience and comfort have triggered the wave of on-demand service models. The city lacking this prospective model with checkpoints like quality service, value addition, and instant availability is arguably conquering a despairing economy. The quickest possible way to clash this service incompetency is deploying a technologically advanced yet simple mobile application that serves customers’ needs by cost-effectively guaranteeing availability.

Following this line of reasoning, our client successfully tapped this gap and planned to launch an on-demand home service app bricked with innovative procurement and risk management strategies that focused on easy service access with profit margins for every stakeholder involved.

Client Goals

Our client aimed to develop an on-demand home service app that connects users with service providers with the ability to perform the following functions:

  • The app should allow users to easily book and schedule services.
  • Geo-location tagging enables users to search and book nearby service providers.
  • Services should be listed by matching the current location preferences.
  • Notifications, alerts, and reminders should be sent to respective stakeholders (Customers and Service Provider) on every status/event update.
  • Multiple payment gateway support.
  • A simple yet branded UI design that is user-friendly and intuitive.

Wireframes

After synthesized learning, our design team worked upon prototyping and wireframe testing for both the iOS and Android platforms. Our UX developers created a detailed set of basic UI and wireframes of two key stakeholders: Customer and Service Provider. This is how the low fidelity prototypes come out.

High Fidelity Prototype

As our abstract ideas were turned into something tangible and got approved by the project managers and client team, our UI designers got ready to work on the app visualization. During the process, they accentuated all the UI elements including fonts, colors palette, design layout to evoke serenity and calmness as these virtues
resonated with the nature of the project.
