Our target country has in the recent years begun an integration to the modern global market economy. Telecom is rapidly penetrating. There are more than 10.0 M mobile social media users with facebook being the primary traffic site. eCommerce development is slowly evolving.
Project Habanero brings together Rene (original idea) and Oscar ( IT expert) as sponsors to develop and launch a C2C platform to enable Seller-Buyer transactions.
To attract customers to the Habanero platform (Website/ Mobile App IT solution) must be simple, efficient (data) with a locally relevant design as well as able to support multi-language (Base language to be English).
The solution must be able to support the basic C2C processes such as the ones already exist like: Marktplaats (Netherlands), Mercado Libre (Mexico), eBay (US), LetGo (US). The project sponsors would like to reuse components that are freeware and already available (provided that the proper credit is given) to minimize cost and time to launch.
Below are the list of high-level use cases:
Business Operation: Configuration, Data Management and BI (Website management, Categories maintenance, data quality, monitor abuse, simple operational dashboard)
Buyer: Homepage & Search (Featured Ads, direct search, browse categories, Login, Invite friends, etc.)
Seller: Selling (Place Advertisements - Ads)
Users: (Seller and Buyer): Access Management (Create account with option to use Facebook authentication)
Users: Notification Center (Inbox, Saved searches, filters, etc.)
Users: Account Management (Including display of user profile/ rating, update personal data and preferences)
More detail on functional requirements are available.
The following technical elements should be considered for the work to be done:
Recommend develop platform/ architecture (preference for hybrid code vs native eg. Xamarin)
Recommend selection of website/ database provider (location if relevant) to ensure app responsiveness and data security
C2C services to be delivered primarily via mobile network. Users have limited access to Wifi at home, so data usage MUST be highly efficient
User GUI/ screens should be ready to incorporate design/ graphis by another party (at a later stage)
Recommend future operation, maintenance and support model and estimate potential run costs based on expected growth (2.0 million active users with 350,000 Ads per day by year 5)
Prepare documentation and engage in a handover to Business as Usual (BAU)
Advanced features like auctions, external advertisement (in App and Web Site) will be out of scope for the purpose of the first release.
Sponsors would like to take an Agile approach to obtain a product in the early stages of the project and decide how much more will be invested in the development of additional features.
Budget available is 5.000 (usd). Intended Go-Live date is Q3 2018.
