A complex android app to reduce anxiety before the tedious home management process. We’ve got a request with an idea of a new startup for the South African market - HomeHub. The initiative included a complex Android application that would consist of 3 main submodules and a provider-homeowner marketplace for managing household services. Basically, users should be able to coordinate the service providers in their area, pre-pay for the electricity, and get a dedicated security team for their homes.


The product was released in several phases, with MVP being the home maintenance service. First of all, we released the closed beta version of the online marketplace to properly test it out. The beta version and the initial open MVP took 3 months of preparation before launching to a selected group of customers. After 1.5 months, they were followed by the electricity purchase feature in the next major version update. Some of the additional features included the ability to purchase prepaid electricity tokens, and trigger an emergency security service response directly to the home. The mobile app was developed in React Native with Python microservices, Admin Panel web app - using React. The cloud infrastructure is set up on AWS.


Pain-relieving invention for thousands of users. Currently, the app is only released to the public on the Google Play Store. However, in the very first month after release, it already got 15k of downloads. Thousands of users had relieved the stress of ordering and paying for a variety of services - now gardening, housework, prepaid electricity, and security management are a few clicks away. The company also plans to develop the application further, expanding the feature-set.
