Process

The answer is by really putting in the effort. We did daily releases, one week Sprints to keep things in check at all times, Google Drive for documents, Jira for task management and Slack as the daily communication tool. Having an Invision prototype based on designs from Sketch made it easy for the entire team to be clear on what we are building and how it’s expected to work and feel.

Communication

Our client is from Australia, but even with the 9-hour time zone difference we still managed to be in close communication, do live reviews and support the sales & marketing team from Melbourne.

The Future

Gobu will most likely be the first on-demand booking app in the world to support Bitcoin payments. Even post-launch we still hustle, knowing how critical it is for a consumer app to stay ahead of the game.
