Development, UX Design
NeighborShare, a non-profit dedicated to assisting families in financial emergencies, enlisted our services to enhance their existing web app with additional functionality. The objective was to implement a bespoke gift card system just in time for the holiday season, and we were delighted to contribute high-quality, cost-effective enhancements for this noble cause.
What we did
1. STRATEGIC DISCOVERY & PLANNING
We started by thoroughly understanding NeighborShare's tech stack, existing app structure, and their precise requirements. We mapped out a strategic plan to simplify the user experience and effectively integrate the desired features.
2. DATABASE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN
We optimized the database architecture to accommodate the new functionalities. This ensured smooth performance and future scalability.
3. GIFT CARD FUNCTIONALITY
We built a custom gift card send and redeem functionality. Tailored to NeighborShare's unique needs, this new feature facilitated more donations, especially during the holiday season.
4. PAYMENT FLOW ENHANCEMENT & STRIPE OPTIMIZATION
We enhanced the app's checkout flow for an intuitive donor experience and further optimized the existing Stripe integration for more efficient and secure transactions.
5. CODE REFACTORING & BUG FIXES
Our team meticulously cleaned up and refactored the existing code, fixed bugs, and eliminated visual inconsistencies, improving the app's performance and aesthetic appeal.
6. TESTING & QUALITY ASSURANCE
We conducted thorough testing and quality assurance to ensure that the enhancements were bug-free and ready for launch.
We successfully enhanced NeighborShare's web app on time and within budget. The new features and improved user experience were well received, strengthening NeighborShare's capacity to support families in need.
