MatchFox PortalA multi-sided platform, where facility managers can search, tender and compare service providers in Germany matchfox.de
The platform provides a list of registered contractors for lift maintenance, cleaning and roofing services for any type of buildings: hotels, medical facilities, residential and office buildings.
The selection process of a provider is carried out in 3 steps
- placing an order online by a customer
- comparing and selecting service providers interested in the task
- receiving individual offers from service providers
In its turn, service providers see the tasks from potential customers, make offers to those they think they are the best fit for and communicate via MatchFox until they are hired.
Goal: to make a complete front-end part for a platform matching service providers with their future customers.
MatchFox is a young startup that came with an idea of creating a tender platform that would make it easy to find and match service providers, operating in Germany, with customers who need their services in a simple and convenient way.
85% of backend was already done, so MatchFox needed a front-end development partner to kick start its tender platform and bring it to the web through making a complete front-end part from beautifully designed PSD files.
The team, allocated to the project, converted the design files into HTML/CSS according to the client’s requirements proposing different design solutions along the way to make the platform more beautiful and user friendly. For example, we implemented a multi scroll plugin on one of the pages to ensure rich and interactive experience for the desktop users, while having a flat and simplified look for mobile devices.
While performing the tasks within the project we have utilized Bootstrap for grid structure, Pug templating, jQuery and SCSS. Our team has also used Gulp in order to streamline workflow and optimize the code.
We ensured that website loaded fast and rendered smoothly on major browsers (latest Safari, Opera, Chrome, Firefox and IE10, 11) and mobile devices.
A tender platform was successfully built and the delivered front-end met client’s expectations on time and requirements.
It has modern look and feel, easy navigation and registration process for both: service providers and customers.
Now the platform is able to gain popularity in the country, attract service providers to create their profiles there and make it easy for customers to find the best contractors for work they need to be done.
We had great experience working with these guys. Communication was very effective and our needs were perfectly analysed and solved. Thanks to the whole team!Gabriel W.
