ULodging: Overcoming Development Issues

Issue

ULodging is a secure online platform that allows for an efficient and effective means for matching institutions that need housing with those that have housing.

Development issues delayed time-to-market of the platform and greatly impacted the business delivering to investors and customers. The company needed to quickly find a way to create a functioning web application that delivered promised features.

Solution

ULodging needed a product with enough features to attract early-adopter customers and validate their product idea early in the product development cycle. I re-designed the platform to run on WordPress CMS instead of full development cycle on AWS. With a combination of trusted secured plugins and custom built extension/plugins, I was able to work with ULodging’s technical team to deliver a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that address business, functionality, and cost concerns.

Results

ULodging was able to achieve their goals.

  • Release their product to the market as quickly as possible.
  • Fulfill commitment to stakeholders and customers
  • Test an idea with real users before committing a large budget to the product’s full development.
  • Learn what resonates with the company’s target market and what doesn’t
