Since its inception in 2013, the app like OYO Rooms brought a sea change to the lives of people entering into a new city or country. It became the bridge between people searching for a suitable accommodation to spend the night or days and hotels & guest room providers in India along with nearly 600 cities of the world where OYO Rooms has an appreciable presence.
In the past people from all walks of life whether students looking for studying or internship options, individuals making a career shift for better opportunities, someone starting a new business venture in a different city, the need for a space to rest has hassled many of us because of the dearth of knowledge of the right property agent, suitable food outlet, inquisitive landlord of place with the bare minimum of necessities – all due to the pressing need of urgency as night approached; budget constraints and paucity of the right contacts or an app like OYO Rooms.
Despite people being mobile savvy, there wasn’t any option of facility available before 2013 when OYO Rooms entered the combined-living market with its low budget apartment sharing, hotel rooms, and etc. facilities for the general public. Initially it started with the Aggregator Business Model and currently works on the Franchise Business Model wherein hotel owners & landlords associated with OYO rooms have to follow strict guidelines, provide quality services & discount plans and pay OYO rooms with revenue of 90% for hotel operations.
This also opened a broad spectrum for start-ups and businesses to enter the co-living market and create an OYO like app for expanding their business growth or getting into this new venture after noticing its stupendous success graph. OYO Rooms has the backing of some of the prominent venture capitalists such as Sequoia Capital, Softbank Group, Light Speed India and Green Oaks Capital.
India’s co-living market till last year was estimated at a market value of $120 Million which is expected to rise steeply to nearly 20 times in the next couple of years.

Native Milk always had to deal with route optimization to maximize profit and frequent changing of delivery boys. While this was easily manageable manually in offline business, it was a big headache when their business went digital.
We developed a mobile application for the drivers with route optimization. The total delivery area is divided into various routes and orders are sorted according to different routes. A driver is then assigned a single route.
PlanTech, (Construction Project Management software Case Study) a well-established US based construction company with huge projects, needed an improvement of their business processes and better optimization of their resources. As their business expanded, projects continuously got delayed which resulted in lawsuits by unhappy clients. We faced a variety of challenges to develop niche technological solutions for a company involved in the construction industry.
We designed separate web and mobile applications for foremen i.e. project managers and for construction staff (labourers). The applications has synchronized features such as calendar, attendance etc. that were updated real time Simple user interface for the layman was developed after many iterations and approval from the client.
We developed a dedicated central project management panel. The purpose was to have a centralised system update where all team leaders from different departments could update on their tasks at work.
We needed a fast technology to synchronize the source data to our system.
We had to run our programs real time during the horse race.
We ran our calculations on the given data, but by the time we generated an analysis of the probable winner, the market trends and positions of the race horses altered so our result had no value.
The reason behind using node.js is that we were able to establish a swift and persistent connection between betfair and our algorithm.
We could run our program with race data and generate results using the latest trends up-to-the-second with more than 99 % of the source data matching with our index.

The client was clear with their needs but was not tech savvy enough to state specific requirements.
In GetIt the driver and vendor are treated as separate entities unlike a regular taxi application where such division does not exist.
We initiated brainstorming sessions with the client to plan out the project.
We built application functionality to optimize the process while simultaneously taking all stakeholders into account.
The client had an understanding of NFC but they had no idea of how the technology behind NFC works.
The client needed a secure platform as they wanted to keep the customer data secured.
We did a knowledge transfer with the client and explained the technology behind NFC and QR code.
We undertook a variety of security measures to prevent any leakage of user data.
The oldest insurance company of Lebanon reached out to us. They needed to digitize their operations and develop a lending application.
The target customers of the bank were mostly laymen with not much technical know-how. They consisted of old people, rural families, middle class urban families etc. Thus digitization was a challenge.
We developed a mechanism for the bank to directly disburse the loan amount to the customer’s bank account. This saved a trip to the bank of the customer and saved a lot of time for both the parties.
